The Royce Hotel, Melbourne
Project review: Fronting Melbourne’s iconic St Kilda Road, The Royce Hotel offers guests the quintessential boutique hotel experience. Originally designed by Art Deco architect Harry Norris and first opened in 1928, the building showcased prestigious Rolls-Royce cars before being transformed into a boutique hotel. The most recent refurbishment by the renowned multi-disciplinary practice SJB has rejuvenated various interior spaces, while respecting the building’s golden age of grandeur, glamour and uncompromising quality. Metro’s black steel-framed doors provide an architectural statement and effortlessly enhance the building’s historic charm.
With Art Deco chandeliers and plush tan leather lounges, the Royce Hotel emanates opulence and elegance. From the splendor of its marble-tiled staircase to the allure of a curved marble fireplace, every detail exudes luxury. Unveiled from behind Gallic doors is the chic French-inspired ‘Conservatory’. This laid back space, where ‘Brunch should be served with bubbles’, offers guests a heated floor and seats. The Conservatory is connected with the outdoor garden terrace by steel-framed doors and windows. Spanning over 15M wide and 2.6M high, our steel-framed bi-fold doors, double pivot doors and fixed windows create an architectural feature. The delicate steel-framed leadlight highlights add a historical note to the contemporary atmosphere.
Handcrafted in our Classic profile, the expansive pivot and bi-fold doors blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor dining. Remaining true to the historical intent of the refurbishment, our steel doors provide a touch of modernity to the French ambiance.
