Design, development and inspiration
hamilton Marino builders, cht architects and sora Interior Architecture + Design are all credited by Yarra hotel group for the construction of oakwood premier Melbourne. The impressive features of the build include the two-height roofs in the lobby, the fitness centre and the sky bar on the 40th floor.
The lobby features three large-sized brass mesh chandeliers that have been constructed layer by layer. Also, a remarkable commissioned artwork by Mika Utzon Popov, the grandson of jorn Uzkon who designed the Sydney Opera House, is on display. Popov’s 3D vertical lobby piece is tactile and inspired by melbourne’s Yarra river. It creates an awe-inspiring entrance. Popov’s installation is connected to the driveway waterfall wall feature, which also incorporates a pattern from the Yarra River as a bird’s eye view. This captures visitors as they enter Oakwood Premier Melbourne.
Furthermore, the artwork in the guest rooms as well as shared spaces pays homage to Australia. It features bright, colourful, native floral photography by a variety Australian artists.
Future thinking, sustainability, and innovative technology played an important role in the creation of oakwood premier Melbourne. A 23kw solar PV system was installed on the roof. This will reduce the property’s dependence on the city grid electricity by about 10-15%. Further, the hotel will have an electronic car charging station, and all elevators are equipped with an advanced “destination control system”, which reduces its overall energy consumption.
