ARM to revitalise Melbourne Intercontinental

We are very excited to be reinventing Melbourne’s Intercontinental Hotel. We won the project this month in a design competition for client SB&G Hotel Group.

The 5-star Intercontinental, which fronts Collins Street and extends south to Flinders Lane, is an icon of Melbourne’s boom-style Victorian-era architecture. It comprises the heritage-listed Rialto (1889) and Winfield (1890) buildings and the 1980s atrium that joins them. Our work will, of course, respect the heritage significance of the 19th-century buildings, while upgrading the 1980s structures.
