Ace Hotel has opened its first location in Australia and the Southern Hemisphere in an historic Sydney building complete with permanent art collection and an in-room vinyl program.

The 257-room Ace Hotel occupies the Tyne House brick factory in Sydney’s Surrey Hills neighborhood, on the site of Australia’s first pottery kiln.

Former Brick Factory Houses Permanent Contemporary Art Collection and Curated In-Room Vinyl Program

Designers Flack Studio took its lead from a landscape painting by Indigenous Australian artist Albert Namatjira. The scene’s “warm, natural tones echo throughout the space” while design theories, such as architect Robin Boyd’s The Australian Ugliness, served as inspiration, employing sandstone feature walls, terracotta tiles, timber and aged brass and an ochre-red marble staircase leading from the ground floor.

Virtually all of the furniture and lighting has been custom-designed by Flack Studio.

The 18-storey building showcases an extensive art program curated by David Flack of Flack Studio which includes “works of all sizes by some of Australia’s most daring new voices in art,” while Melbourne-based label Efficient Space has overseen an in-room record program that sees Rega turntables installed in certain rooms.

Elsewhere in design, ‘The Conjuring’ house sells for $1.5M USD.
