Challenge

AccorHotels is a French multinational hotel group which owns and franchises many brands including Ibis, Mercure, Novotel, Sofitel, and Pullman.

 

AccorHotels called on WMK when its Sydney head office on Pitt Street was in need of a refresh. 

 

 

 

The WMK team created a new reception, staff kitchen, break out spaces, and meeting rooms for this popular hotel brand.

Solution

WMK created a sophisticated entry and reception to welcome visitors. The area features a coffee station for visitors to help themselves on arrival.

 

Reception is supplemented by a variety of meeting rooms – each designed to reflect the personality of a different AccorHotels brand through colours, textures, and materials.

 

The back-of-house features a staff kitchen and a range of alternative work points and places to socialise, including lounge chairs, computer kiosks, and bar seating, while a previously underutilised space has been transformed into a mothers' nursing room.
