Space Studio has recently completed the interior fit-out of the newly opened Sofitel Wellington – a $50 million, 130-room hotel.
Sofitel is a premium hotel brand for the French company Accor. The project was envisioned as a 5 Star Sofitel hotel and to this end the design had to reflect the Sofitel brand parameters.
Space Studio's vision for the design was to leverage on the beautiful surrounds of the botanic gardens and Wellington’s heritage creating a vibrant, colourful, eclectic warm environment that met the Accor standards for Sofitel.
A number of James Dunlop and Mokum fabrics were used throughout the project - specifically on chairs, sofas, headboards and accessories. The colour and pattern offering in James Dunlop Textiles range of fabrics were particularly suitable to the theme and worked beautifully to craft a luxurious experience which is what Space Studio wanted to achieve. The fusion of colour and pattern is seen as you transition through various spaces linking in the botanic inspiration.
Speaking to what guests are looking for in luxury hotels today, Sofitel Wellington is unique, boutique and offers a level of luxury not previously prevalent in the Wellington market.
