12. Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, Sydney: Designed by Bates Smart, we expect the refurbished interiors of Four Points by Sheraton lobby, to be unveiled in 2016, will be a hospitable space for guests to arrive, with sandstone blade walls and architectural voids, creating a  strong visual connection between the hotel lobby on the ground floor and the convention facility above.

We cannot wait for the unveil of Four Points by Sheraton also because Vogl, the acoustic perforated plasterboard product by Decor Systems, is installed extensively throughout the new hotel. Watch this space!
