Jackalope Mornington Peninsula
Architecture and Interior Design
“Carr’s ability to achieve immersive storytelling with a sophisticated and luxurious outcome exceeded my expectations.” Louis Li Owner
Situated at the crest of a gently sloping hill overlooking the sculptural landscape of vines and nestled within a matrix of century old native planting, the new 46 room boutique hotel clad in dark aluminium with charred timber and black metal detailing, provides a bold and modern interpretation of the local architectural language of agricultural buildings and barn like structures. Complete with a 30-metre infinity pool, the hotel represents luxury in both destination and design.
Set to redefine the term destination hotel and representing one of Victoria’s few boutique establishments, Jackalope offers a new-concept hotel, fuelled by a dynamic and truly design-driven experience.
With architecture and interiors by Carr, the design successfully embraces its origins but celebrates the future, creating a sensory experience that is distinctive and true to place.
