WINNER - "Development of the Year - Hotels and Accommodation"


We are delighted to announce that Ovolo South Yarra has been awarded “Development of the Year – Hotels and Accommodation” at The Urban Developer 2021 Awards.


Receiving this award recognises the exceptional development outcome achieved, the extraordinary hotel experience provided and highlights the importance of being able to connect with guests emotionally through design. Ovolo nailed this by successfully connecting the local cultural scene through art, design and food and integrating that into the fabric of a guests experience.

Located on the corner of Chapel Street and Toorak Road, the hotel is perfectly placed in the vibrant and bustling inner-urban hub. The design takes cues from the disco and rock concepts of the seventies and eighties, with an overall theme of extroverted retro glamour. Featuring 123 rooms, the hotel blends old-school aesthetics with the practicality of new technology and plenty of unexpected inclusions.

We are proud to have been involved and thankful for being given the ability to share our extensive hotel development and operational experience to bridge gaps and ensure the end-result was a uniquely world class hotel experience. Thanks to Talis Sterns and Luke Mullavey our hotel sector specialists for leading this project.

And of course, a huge congratulations to our clients; Developer Argo Group and end owner operator Ovolo Hotels.

Thank you also to the amazing construction and design team: Hickory and Luchetti Krelle for bringing the project to life.
