Boutique Design Events and Trade Fairs

Marriott Hotels has opened the Melbourne Marriott Hotel Docklands. Featuring 189 guestrooms and a rooftop infinity pool, the new property is the first international 5-star hotel in the harbor suburb.

Designed by DKO Architecture, the hotel takes design cues from the aerodynamic contours of yachts in the city’s harbor. The curved façade offers multiple views over the water, city skyline, and the Bolte Bridge. This gentle and soothing motif transitions harmoniously from the exterior of the building through to the interior, complemented by the fluted glass windows of the lobby, with art installations ushering guests through to the connecting laneway.

Setting the scene upon arrival, polished brass golden chains by Australian sculptor Alexander Knox are suspended in sweeping parabolas throughout the hotel lobby, echoing the ruched forms of cinched sailcloth. Additionally, the featured pendant lights by Melbourne lighting designer Volker Haug set a sense of comfortable intimacy throughout the dining spaces.
