Mantra Southbank, Melbourne has received a multi-million dollar refurbishment which has transformed the hotel’s spacious apartment-style guest rooms into an arts-inspired urban oasis.
Award-winning architecture and interior design firm Arkhefield, who was at the helm of the makeover, drew inspiration for the new design from Mantra Southbank’s location in Melbourne’s vibrant arts and entertainment district.
118 one and two bedroom apartments have been rejuvenated, combining the ultimate in guest comfort with a contemporary elegant design.
A custom-designed wallpaper featuring some of Melbourne’s iconic city locations juxtaposed with an ethereal prima ballerina acts as a focal point in the refurbished one and two bedroom apartments and a monochromatic colour scheme with bursts of colour adds theatrics.
Mantra Southbank general manager, Adrian Lampe, said the hotel’s new design takes cues from the hotel’s surrounding arts and dance precinct.
“When you have neighbours like the Arts Centre Melbourne, Australian Ballet, Melbourne Theatre Company and Centre for Contemporary Arts, it was imperative we reinterpreted the space, modernised our features and added some theatrical fun for our guests,” Mr Lampe said.
