This project catered for apartments, office buildings and cafes. The owners of the five-star Crown Hotel wanted to add 12 studio rooms and a new restaurant for hotel guests and the public.

The Opus Architecture design provided five floors including service rooms and plant in the basement, the shell for Milk and Honey restaurant on the ground floor and hotel studios above. Floor levels matched those of the existing hotel.
