Rydges RNA

This unique 4.5-star hotel in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley is positioned on a key site in the Ekka Royal Queensland Showground redevelopment. 

 

The hotel consists of 208 rooms with a bar, restaurant and  rooftop pool. The mostly vertical glass facade facing the showground attempts to connect the lobby to the plaza. The design situates the building to the site through a series of vertical planes that are not only visible from the interior but also encases the exterior to become an integral addition to the buildings overall gesture.
