SkyCity Adelaide Casino Expansion


SkyCity Enterainment Group


In 2017, the Government of South Australia, together with SkyCity Entertainment Group, announced plans for Adelaide Casino to undergo a $330 million transformation.

Walter Brooke, together with Hecker Guthrie, was appointed as the lead interior designers, and was tasked to deliver the hotel interior design component of the expansion.


The hotel was the largest component of the development, and the Walter Brooke team was responsible for the planning, design and documentation of around eight of the nine floors in total. The $40 Million dollar fit-out budget included arrival foyers, entry spaces, function floors, restaurants, the hotel reception, spa and pool facilities, hotel rooms, suites, private villas and private gaming salons.

The project brief called for a world-class, unique, and exclusive boutique 6-star hotel which would attract hotel and casino patrons.

Walter Brooke’s and Hecker Guthrie’s aim was to design a timeless and glamourous aesthetic to ensure an experience of the highest quality.

The team understood the requirements of all stakeholders, engaged varied user groups, and demonstrated to the client that their expectations could be achieved with unique and innovative design solutions.

Our team challenged the notion of a 6-star hotel and reinvented the extent of finishes, which would usually be associated with this type of development to ensure the budget aligned with the project’s ambitions.
