Our freshly renovated north wing is now home to seven new rooms. Previously part of the Silvereye restaurant, the former fine-diner has been transformed into five Abercrombie Rooms and two Clare Suites. Inspired by the original Art Deco features of the building, this expansion welcomes a third design aesthetic to our existing industrial and contemporary rooms.
Australian and First Nations artworks curated from Gene Sherman’s private collection can be found throughout the new wing, courtesy of our friends at The Sherman Centre for Culture and Ideas.
Filled with character, our Clare Suites represent what The Old Clare is all about. Through considered design, heritage features appreciate the history of the building while fearlessly bringing architectural elements into the present. This results in an ambience of cutting-edge nostalgia.
For the new Clare Suites, this can be seen in details like the curved layout, custom made pendant lamps inspired by the Art Deco shape of our Clare bar, and circular mirrors. Original Black Butt timber floors, reupholstered banquettes and Rag and Bone Man lamps from Silvereye restaurant sit amongst artworks by Christian Thompson. Vintage bathtubs, armchairs and coffee tables have been shipped from Singapore’s former New Majestic hotel, thoughtfully translated into the space amongst the custom American Oak cabinetry.
Our Abercrombie Rooms are for those who are always up for something new. Available in all three of our signature industrial, contemporary and new art deco interiors, the diversity of our Abercrombie rooms is what makes them so exciting.
