With interior design by Scott Carver, Auckland will welcome IHG’s first Hotel Indigo in New Zealand in 2021, with Ninety Four Feet as the property developer. Housed within a mixed-use development, our challenge was to interpret IHG’s neighbourhood story for this 225-key hotel in Auckland. Maintaining the façade of the original historic building, the development will be among Auckland’s tallest buildings, which captures the local soul of the area and attracts the Upbeat Curious Traveller. This heritage building, which was the first luxury car importer in Auckland, as well as an auto mechanic for many years following, formed the basis of the design team’s inspiration for the design of the lobby, F&B offers and public areas of the hotel.
“This development is destined to become an iconic landmark on the Auckland landscape, and with robust tourism arrivals and unprecedented demand, we are confident that Hotel Indigo Auckland will be a story of success,” says Dean Rzechta, Managing Director, Ninety Four Feet property development.
“Scott Carver’s interior design of Hotel Indigo is a celebration of downtown Auckland’s transformation, which has now become a vibrant cultural hub for entertainment, business and living. The bold and creative interior design solutions which the Scott Carver team has come up with for Hotel Indigo creatively draw upon the heritage of the site to surprise and delight guests,” says Rzechta.
