Woods Bagot’s Bronwyn McColl described the hotel’s design as sophisticated, evoking a sense of refuge and ritual.
“Being a new building gave us scope early in the design process to marry sustainability with the values of health and wellness.”
The hotel offers a fitness studio, a spa and regular yoga and Pilates classes. Wellness is a big focus, with the hotel even offering a “run concierge” also known as a local running partner.
“Guests will feel the authenticity of a truly local experience,” McColl said.
The ground floor lobby flows into the hotel’s street-side jazz bar, as McColl says the ground floor hospitality was designed to merge with the street in a greater way than a traditional hotel.
