Event Details


Short Black  - Architects in their Space. In August we will be visiting Little Albion Guest House by Terence Yong, (Terence Yong Architecture) Chris Haughton (Shed Architects) for the architecture and Connie Alessi (Archemy) and Cressida Kennedy (Space Control) for Interior Design.

Situated in the heart of Surry Hills, Little Albion Guest House fronts two streets – Albion Street and Little Albion Street. It occupies a tiny North-South-oriented urban infill site in a densely built urban environment and hence it is deprived of natural sunlight. It is sandwiched between two heritage buildings – a former Presbyterian church to the West, which is now a hip commercial office building, and a former school hall to the East, which is now a mixed-use apartment building. All three buildings form part of a Heritage Conservation Area.

Reception and All-Day Sunken Lounge on the Lower Ground Floor and two levels of sun-bathed guest rooms above with neighbourhood and city views. The New Western Extension has three levels of sun-bathed guest rooms with expansive popout, steel-framed picture windows with banquette seating. Both extensions appear as vertical white brick boxes that are separated by a tall and sleek, attention-grabbing Glass Lift Tower.

8Hotel's founder and chief executive Paul Fischmann said travellers are all about the experience and are shifting more towards the boutique end of the market to "immerse themselves in a city".

The talk will be followed with an opportunity to go inside some of the rooms with the architect and interior designer. 

Delightfully intimate, genuinely original & refreshingly unpretentious, Little Albion is the embodiment of the local guest house experience reimagined for the modern luxury traveller. 

Behind a beautifully restored heritage former convent lays a world of tantalizing interior delights & surprises awaiting your discovery at every turn.

The building is capped with a North-facing, beautifully landscaped Secret Rooftop Garden with sweeping views of the city.


Please arrive at the venue 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of the talk.
