THE DIGEST Southern

THE DIGEST Southern Visions IT’S BOOM TIME IN AUSTRALIA, WITH WAVES OF OPENINGS ENERGISING CITIES ACROSS THE CONTINENT. CARRIE HUTCHINSON REPORTS Hot spots From left: the rough-hewn façade of the new Paramount House Hotel; pork belly with fennel and plum pickle at Chris Lucas’s Chin Chin A New Act SYDNEY’S SURRY HILLS HAS A DYNAMIC NEW HUB AMID A FLURRY OF EMERGING EATERIES For years, the former Australian headquarters of Paramount Pictures attracted attention for its good looks but little love to accompany that admiration. Over the past decade, however, a team of creative professionals has revitalised the 1940s office building, Paramount House (paramounthouse.com.au), and adjoining film-storage warehouse. A number of design-conscious businesses – Golden Age Cinema & Bar, Paramount Coffee Project, The Office Space – opened on the publicly accessible floors, while animators, designers and creative agencies moved in upstairs. Now, assisted by Melbourne’s Breathe Architecture, the trio of Russell Beard, Ping Jin Ng and Mark Dundon are opening Paramount House Hotel (paramounthousehotel.com). The 29 rooms offer handcrafted details (the blush pink of the walls perfectly matches a fleck in the terrazzo), commissioned art and terraces filled with greenery. The feeling is cosy yet stylish, with heritage details, including the original roofline, still visible in many rooms. The warehouse’s twostorey extension is clad in copper to add aesthetic flourish as well as privacy, and best of all, with the foyer and Paramount Coffee Project sharing floor space, there’s a built-in neighbourhood vibe for guests. Downstairs is Poly, a new bar from Mat Lindsay, where natural wines and char-grilled small plates grace the menu. On the roof, Paramount Recreation Club offers fitness classes and personal training, as well as a kiosk serving healthy fare with a Californian influence. The whole establishment breathes life into a city-fringe pocket of Surry Hills near Commonwealth and Goulburn Streets that is fast becoming Sydney’s hippest hood. Long-time resident Longrain (longrain.com.au), which opened in 1999, still pumps out contemporary Thai cuisine, while Mexican-inspired dive bar Tio’s (4– 14 Foster Street) and Middle Eastern eatery Nomad (nomadwine.com.au), are around the corner. Across the street, the 1915 Griffiths Teas building – a rare example of a Federation-era warehouse – has been converted into luxe apartments, and it’s there that Melbourne restaurateur Chris Lucas has tracked north with his muchloved Chin Chin (chinchinrestaurant.com. au), which has certainly got locals talking.

HERITAGE HERO IT’S MELBOURNE’S BEST-KNOWN UPMARKET RETAIL PRECINCT, AND NOW THERE’S EVEN MORE REASON TO PROMENADE ALONG COLLINS STREET. ARCHITECTURE FIRM BATES SMART HAS UPDATED THE HERITAGE-LISTED T&G BUILDING (tandgbuilding.com. au), FIRST OPENED IN 1928, AND A SWATHE OF TOP NAMES HAS ENTERED ITS STYLISH WALLS. HERE YOU CAN BROWSE GUCCI, BOTTEGA VENETA’S FLAGSHIP AUSTRALIAN STORE AND THE COUNTRY’S ONLY STANDALONE VERSACE BOUTIQUE. From top: the shimmering exterior of the new Emporium Hotel South Bank; W Brisbane’s kaleidoscopic wet bar Hotel Head-Turners Contemporary design and personalised service come together at United Places (unitedplaces. com.au), an all-suite hotel in Melbourne’s South Yarra neighbourhood, due to open in June. Its 12 rooms, which combine space and opulence, overlook either the Royal Botanic Gardens or leafy residential surrounds. The Queensland capital’s hotel stocks rise with the launch of riverside W Brisbane (starwoodhotels.com) and its 312 bold rooms, while Emporium Hotels (emporiumhotels.com.au), having sold its much-loved Fortitude Valley digs, will open its South Bank venture, with 143 rooms, in the middle of 2018. The jewel in its crown will be an infinity pool and bar on the 21st floor. In the west, the vestiges of a 1980s hotel remain outside InterContinental Perth City Centre (intercontinental.com) – check out the thickly bordered square windows – but the interiors are pure 21st-century opulence. Tactile finishes and gold and cream tones feature in the 240 rooms, while the dining options are excellent: there are four restaurants and bars, including the upmarket Spanish grill Ascua (ascua. com.au). Expect the unexpected when QT Perth (qthotelsandresorts.com) opens mid-year. The 184- room property from Australia’s most daring hotel group will come complete with rooftop bar. Wine Becomes Finer THE PRESSURE TO REMAIN ONE STEP AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION HAS SEEN A NEW ERA OF DESIGN-FOCUSED ADDITIONS TO WINERIES AROUND AUSTRALIA. FROM SOUTH AUSTRALIA’S McLAREN VALE TO VICTORIA’S MORNINGTON PENINSULA, IT’S ABOUT MORE THAN POURING A GLASS © EMPORIUM HOTELS, © STARWOOD, © MITCHELTON HOTEL, ANSON SMART, © D’ARENBERG D’ARENBERG CUBE For 15 years, winemaker Chester Osborn harboured a desire to construct a cellar door that mirrored the complex puzzle of making wine. The result is McLaren Vale’s newest masterpiece, which rises like a futuristic vision from the vineyards. Within the five-level, glass-façade building is an immersive experience that incorporates tasting, a restaurant and art gallery. darenberg.com.au PT LEO ESTATE Grab a glass of wine and stroll through the sculpture park at this estate, located near Merricks on the Mornington Peninsula. With a backdrop of the ocean and framed by vineyards, the more than 40-piece outdoor gallery features work by Inge King, Tony Cragg, George Rickey and more. A new fine-dining restaurant, Laura, has just opened with chef Phil Wood at the helm. ptleoestate.com.au MITCHELTON HOTEL Mitchelton Winery has long been a drawcard for wine and architecture aficionados. Located in Victoria’s Goulburn Valley, the estate is famed for shiraz and features a number of Robin Boyd-conceived buildings. Now, there’s an elegant new hotel. Inspired by the surrounding countryside, its 58 rooms and suites feature original artwork and photography, luxe finishes and either river or vineyard views. mitchelton.com.au 23 NetJets
