Kerry Hill Architects designs Como The Treasury in Perth

Como Hotels and Resorts opened the brand’s first Australian property, Como The Treasury, in Perth, Western Australia. The property was designed by Australian architect Kerry Hill.

Como The Treasury has 48 rooms and suites, averaging 753 square feet. The rooms have custom-made “Grand Posture” king-size beds and handcrafted bespoke European furniture. There are also large windows to flood the accommodations with natural light. En-suite bathrooms have German Kaldewei Duo free-standing bathtubs, twin vanities, Travertine stone tiles and heated floors. Amenities include Como’s signature aromatherapy-based Como Shambhala toiletries.

For dining, the property has Wildflower on the hotel’s rooftop, offering views across the Swan River; and Post on the ground floor.

Virtual Event


Survival in these times is highly dependent on a hotel's ability to quickly adapt and pivot their business to meet the current needs of travelers and the surrounding community. Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.

Other facilities include The Treasury Lounge and Bar, as well as meeting rooms, a heated indoor swimming pool and Como Shambhala Urban Escape, which offers therapies along with a wellness center for yoga and Pilates.

The hotel is on Cathedral Avenue in Perth’s Central Business District. This revamped heritage site contains a group of buildings — known locally as the State Buildings — that played roles in the city’s history for the past 140 years, serving as town hall, post office, land-titles office, and treasury. Before construction began in 2012, the buildings sat unused for nearly 20 years.

Ninety-five percent of the original heritage building was returned to its 19th-century origins, including re-installed dormer windows, rooftop copper trimmings and a stripped back façade showing off the original surface.

This venture is in conjunction with FJM Property, an Australian property development and investment company.
