Old Clare Hotel Sydney

Blending old and new artfully in Sydney’s inner-west. The new Old Clare Hotel in Chippendale is part of the $2 billion urban renewal project known as Central Park.

The architects have taken two buildings and merged them with a striking rebuild in a stunning and heritage-sensitive conversion. Read all about it as they say in my story for Architectural Digest.


The hotel lies at the heart of the budding Kensington Street precinct.


The city-nudging Central Park zone is wedged between Sydney Uni, Central Station and the CBD – guaranteeing a great deck-top view from the hotel
