Designed by Woods Bagot, Ivy, A Landscaped Oasis for Work, rest and play is located in the Heart of Sydney, Australia. A landscaped oasis containing over 20,000 sq m of hotel and hospitality venues, Ivy is a seamless ensemble of 18 bars, nine restaurants, one of Sydney’s largest ballrooms, a sunken garden atrium, two penthouse suites and a rooftop pool – designed across two adjoining sites in mid-town Sydney.
The interior design principles stem from a careful understanding of the interrelationship between architecture, landscape and interiors. Despite residing within a commercial domain, the encapsulation of the client’s love for 1950s modernist residencies is retained throughout the Ivy through its qualities of conventional domesticity and the reinterpretation of this style into a harmonious sequence of indoor/outdoor rooms. This holistic approach to design (to bring the outdoors in and the indoors out), has produced a hospitality offering layered with rich, unexpected touches.
