Celebrating 50 years of transformational design


Conversion of a former rag trade building into a 34 room boutique Adelphi Hotel in 1992, put Denton Corker Marshall in the vanguard of the transformation of the City of Melbourne.

Characterised by bespoke furniture, sticks, stainless steel, aluminium and coloured planar surfaces, the hotel featured a radical 25m glass enclosed swimming pool extending over Flinders Lane street frontage at roof-top level.

2023 celebrates Denton Corker Marshall’s 50th year of transformative and thought-provoking design – catalysts for change in the city and Australian architectural identity abroad.
