The Atura Hotel Blacktown is a fun and functional hotel, offering a chic, contemporary design and a focus on connectivity that sets it apart from competitors. Reminiscent of a Palm Springs resort, the interiors are rich with warm colours and period furniture, used extensively to reflect a 1950’ Mid-Century Modern architectural and design style.
After its completion in late 2013, the Atura Hotel has become an urban oasis and local landmark in Sydney’s West. The striking, extruded white façade belies colour, ambiance, and imagery used within the structure, enticing visitors to venture closer.
Achieving its impressive finish involved a variety of decorative and structural elements used in the internal fit-out, including: Industrial lighting, plywood cabinetry, exposed aggregate floors, ad 50’s style designer furniture. Glazed face bricks from kept with the urban industrial look, using Cosmic and Paris from the PGH Bricks Vibrant range, and Nobel from the Academy range. This selection of bricks was used as an integral part of the interior design, providing the walls that define the reception area, lobby, business centre, restaurant and bar.
Not only did these bricks provide a highly robust quality, there was a real serviceability in them – along with vibrancy of colour, smoothness, and a fully glazed finish. The Atura Hotel Blacktown is a perfect example of bricks being used in a clever and creative way to achieve an aesthetic that feels stylish, fun, and timeless.
