QT MUSEUM HOTEL WELLINGTON
Stage 1 completed 2017
The Museum Art Hotel is a well loved hotel of Wellington New Zealand. Best known for its extraordinary collage of NZ artworks; eccentric sculptures; and wonderful Italian motorbikes. The hotel building was actually moved on railway sleepers from the present harbour site of Te Papa museum to its present location on the corner of Tory and Cable street.
Events Entertainment procured the hotel and since 2016 Indyk Architects has transfomed it into an elegant quirky QT Hotel. The eccentricity is retained along with the NZ artworks, hung within newly designed, oversized mirrored frames.
Indyk has created a whole new ground floor fitout with new reception, and cafebar along with a new ‘Hot Sauce’ bar lounge, within what was the existing carpark. A stylishly quirky new ‘front of house’ image has been created. Guest Rooms have also been transformed and a new level of accommodation will be created on level 4 in stage 2.
