Financial Review – United Places Botanic Gardens Hotel: Luxury Redefined

When the scaffolding came down a few weeks ago, the United Places hotel emerged as a sharp, modernist grid amid the froufrou of Victorian terraces on Melbourne’s tony Domain road.

“Carr’s skill is in making rigour come off as gallantly nonchalant. What United Places says is that luxury doesn’t have to be about a lavish layering of materials, furnishings and finishes; it can be about a judicious stripping back.
The hotel’s exuberance comes from the carefully calibrated floor plans, surface integrity and a superlative level of execution.”  Stephen Todd, Design Editor, Australian Financial Review.
