Lester Hotel

This project consists of a sixteen storey, 4.5 star and 244 room modular hotel with gym, conference and restaurant facilities on a gateway site on the north-west corner of the Adelaide CBD.

The site is ideally located to provide short and longer term accommodation to cater for the demands of the New Royal Adelaide Hospital (NRAH) which lies a short walk from the hotel.

At ground floor commercial uses are configured to optimise activation to the surrounding public realm along West Terrace and Rose Street. Conference and gym facilities provide further activation at the first floor. Larger suites are created at the top floor with private terrace spaces overlooking the river and parklands to the north and west.

The facade design exploits the rigorous nature of this building typology and provides depth and articulation with the folded sun-shading devices. North facing winter gardens provide further solar mitigation whilst also providing an acoustic buffer.

The site was identified very early in the process as being optimum for a modular building. The relatively small footprint, the potential for height and the required use as a hotel – which is necessarily repetitious – were ideal criteria for a modular building.
