Located in Melbourne, Australia, Crown Metropol, newest hotel was designed by Bates Smart, Crown Metropol’s brief was to impart a youthful and dynamic form. The architects intended the hotel’s design to challenge tradition and add a sense of occasion with unorthodox elements, dark, dramatic shapes and earthy, grounded silhouettes inspired by nature.
The sensual, fluid form of the building seamlessly flows through to the refined interiors of the hotel. The result is a refined, world-class hotel that showcases Melbourne from a new, contemporary angle and enables the city to be watched in silent motion.
The Bates Smart team of architects and interior designers took just 36 months to design and deliver the new hotel, drawing on their company’s unique ability to design from the inside out as well as outside in. Bates Smart managed all aspects of the design process from start to finish; from master planning and urban design through all architecture and interior design, right down to the final placement of the last accessory.
