Located in Victoria, BC, the project intends to bridge the gap between historic and trendy, finding its niche somewhere in-between.
HOSPITALITY DESIGN | THIRD YEAR
otanic Boutique Hotel and Bar intends to give guests an immersive historic experience reminiscent of Victoria’s past, with a refreshing twist. It will set itself apart from other historic accommodations nearby by artfully merging its heritage site, a post office built in 1914, with contemporary aesthetic trends appealing to visionary minds and those in creative industries.
In order to showcase Victoria’s talent, as well as attract locals interested in enrichment of their own city’s culture, Chefs and artists will be featured monthly within the restaurant and lobby. The original building will be preserved and infiltrated with an unexpected balance of masculine and feminine, both in the main lobby, as well as the hotel’s seven guest rooms. Brick walls exposing the buildings original bones will be plastered with lively and provocative art, adding spunk and colour. Intimate coves of rich texture and warm tones will romanticize the space, encouraging conversation, relaxation, and an unforgettable stay.
