Louis T Collection Opens Doors of Quay Perth Hotel
Quay Perth is a new 80-room boutique hotel on the site of the former New Esplanade hotel and the newest addition to the picturesque Elizabeth Quay development.
This latest hotel to join Louis T Collection’s hotel portfolio is steps away from the city’s central business district and overlooks Elizabeth Quayand the Swan River. Quay Perth’s multi-million-dollar redevelopment is a top-to-bottom transformation of the former hotel, which includes all guest rooms and public areas, the addition of a stylish, all-day sidewalk eatery, sophisticated rooftop bar and kitchen, and an innovative co-working spaces with sweeping views of Elizabeth Quay and the Swan River.
Quay Perth’s interiors are inspired by Western Australia’s natural landscape and Perth’s laid-back vibe, with an earthy colour palette that uses natural local materials, such as Victorian ash wood. Upon entry, the spacious lobby connects with the property’s sidewalk eatery, Community at Quay, providing a sense of residential chic and ensures the hotel feels more like a home away from home, than a traditional hotel.
The design was a collaboration between industry-leading architects and designers including renowned Western Australian residential interior designer Malvina Stone, architects Nicola Gibson and Daniel Bailey, and Perth-based architectural firm Alda Consultants, led by Andrew Lian. Robert Batrick, director of project services for Louis T Collection, was the lead on the redevelopment project. The original building has been stripped back to its bare bones, allowing the designer to create a space that is modern, stylish, and distinctly Australian.
Quay Perth is Stone’s first foray into commercial property and her homely, yet simplistic style shines throughout the property. In 2018, Habitus Living Magazine named Stone one of Australia’s leading interior designers. The hotel carpark entry has been brought to life by local artist, Chris Nixon. Nixon’s eye-catching piece incorporates abstract shapes, balanced with loose forms and pops of colour that reference the architectural form of the building. The letters QUAY form the outline for the patterns. To learn more about Quay Perth, visit www.quayperth.com.
