The Lydiard Boutique Hotel

Ballarat, VIC.

The challenge began with a derelict, heritage listed, former bank building shell and to create a luxurious boutique hotel in the historic goldfields city of Victoria.

The design concept was to link the rich heritage and contemporary elements of timber panelling and gilt detailing to the historic gold mining era with a new lease of life to add to the long history of the building and Ballarat itself.

Under construction for completion later this year The Lydiard will bring premium style and comfort to benefit local residents, visitors and the growing number of international tourists seeking insights into the City’s past.
