Wallpaper* – United Places Botanic Gardens Hotel
Melbourne’s latest luxe bolthole – United Places Botanic Gardens – is a subtle beauty. There is no foyer. Instead, at the end of the entryway, light thrown by Laura Woodward’s kinetic sculpture set in a conical form in the ceiling indicates where one should wait for the lift.
First-time hotelier Darren Rubenstein envisioned a blend of home and luxury hotel for the venture and commissioned Carr Design Group for both architecture and interior design.
