Staying at a hotel should be more akin to staying at home when you’re not at home, according to those who founded the Voco Hotels. It was an approach that was taken into consideration when Suede Interior Design was commissioned to create the interiors for a new Voco Hotel in Melbourne. Conceived by IHG, an intercontinental hospitality group, and designed by architects Elenberg Fraser, the two towers, with a hotel on one side and residential apartments on the other, will become a landmark at 380 Lonsdale Street, when the Brady Group development is completed next year. There are already a number of Voco Hotels, in London, Dubai, as well as Down Under: on the Gold Coast and in the Hunter Valley. “Our brief was to create something that felt comfortable, inviting to live in for a typical duration of three days, with a lack of pretention,” says interior designer Clifford Rip, director of Suede Interior Design. “It was important that people be comfortable enough to put up their feet on an ottoman and feel as though they could be at home,” he adds.
