COMO The Treasury, Perth

Voted #1 Best Hotel in Australia and #2 Best Hotel in the World in the Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards

COMO The Treasury hotel in Perth Western Australia, located inside the painstakingly restored 19th-century former State Buildings (Treasury, Post Office, Land & Titles), is a spectacular testament to the patience and dedication of its architect, developers and project managers Caterlink who have restored and re-opened a complex that was unused for the last 20 years.

 

Brainchild of Perth developer Adrian Fini and Perth-born architect Kerry Hill, the hotel oozes history and charm – from the warm brick facade, elaborate cornices and slate roof tiles to the contemporary whites, beiges and blonde woods of its interiors, all striking against the original jarrah flooring and scattered shadows of the past: steel vault doors, ornate fireplaces, an old boot encased in glass.

No attention to detail has been spared in the creation of the sophisticated 48 bedroom hotel with restaurants Post (in the former Post Office), fine dining restaurant Wildflower, the Treasury Lounge and Bar and the Halford Basement Bar.

 

Designed to be understated yet something very special, the hotel has plenty of “wow” features. The 20-metre pool on the third floor is surrounded by louvred-glass walls, creating an impressive indoor-outdoor effect. The original concrete staircase in the Titles building cuts a swathe through the hotel’s east wing, with a bronzed stainless-steel cage running up through the centre.

 

The spacious nature of the original buildings means there is plenty of room for “ease” in this complex, by comparison with the usual hotel world of long corridors with identical rooms, optimised for the maximum number of beds.

The discernment and quality of the design, fittings and materials used in this restoration are also reflected in the selection of SKOPE equipment throughout kitchens and bars of the entire complex.  Among the SKOPE equipment fitted into the kitchens and bars are Irinox Blast Chillers, SKOPE Backbars and wine chillers, Pegasus gastronorm underbench fridges, upright freezers and more.

"This was a significant installation for the SKOPE team and we were proud to work with our distributor Caterlink providing quality products for a project of this nature."
