The Paragon Hotel at Circular Quay has stood on Sydney’s shipping hub foreshore since 1860. The heritage-listed drinking hole was a favourite of sea men, passengers and wharf labourers in its early days. Today the hotel has been revamped into a modern hot spot with roofless top floor and alfresco dining.

Our Role

On the success of the green walls at sister-hotel, ‘The Republic’, Junglefy were asked again by design team Tzannes to create green walls for this city bar. Whilst retaining the heritage of the original brick facade, Junglefy attached green wall modules to the inside of this space to create the living green walls. Junglefy continues the regular maintenance of the green walls as required and season dependent.
