The Pearl Room
Burswood Entertainment Complex, Perth

The Pearl Room at Burswood Entertainment Complex is a premium hospitality environment, housed within and extending the existing podium level of the Intercontinental Hotel. The interior comprises a hierarchy of private and open gaming salons, reception, lounge and bar spaces for local and international VIP guests.

The Pearl Room breaks with traditional internalised gaming design to maximise natural light and take advantage of spectacular exterior vistas.

This is a gaming environment distinguished by a contemporary club-like atmosphere with emphasis on connection to the river, the unique natural setting and landscape. A strong sense of arrival is paramount; the interior emphasises contemporary luxury and understated grandeur.

An elegant annexe extension houses the most prestigious of the private gaming salons. The result is a finely crafted, classically modern, elevated pavilion that exploits its magnificent outlook to the immediate environs of the Burswood resort and the city skyline beyond.

A striking glazed connection was inserted between the buildings to link the new pavilion to the existing hotel. Inside, the lounge fuses seamlessly with the architecture, giving it the appearance of being suspended above the tapering landscaped court.

The delicate glass form of the architecture responds sensitively to the robust zig-zag geometry of the existing hotel, offering a contemporary interpretation that echoes its faceted form. A monumentally scaled sandstone-clad blade wall faces the serrated hotel profile to the south and simultaneously forms a significant interior axial wall flanking the south side of the processional corridor that leads to high-end private gaming salons.
