Project Description

Newcastle’s Lucky Hotel is an important heritage listed building
within the city’s CBD that has been closed for several years, resulting
in the building’s fabric deteriorating and becoming home to the
areas pigeons. Despite the buildings dilapidated state the building
owner and the project’s design architect were able to envision the
building’s transformation from its poor condition to once again
becoming a major food and entertainment venue that includes
boutique accommodation. Graph Builders have successfully added
a great deal of expertise to the building that blends old with new and
accommodates a modern usage. The attention to detail and standard
of workmanship makes this a worthy winner.
