voco Melbourne Central is the first new build voco in the world and Modieus was tasked with designing bespoke flooring solutions to compliment and finish its statement look…

Located in the heart of Melbourne, this originally designed inner-city oasis gives a stunning first impression from the outside in. Part of the 380 Melbourne skyscraper and moments away from Bourke Street Mall, Melbourne Central Station and the Emporium, voco Melbourne Central has a modern charm with spectacular views of the city.

“The hotel’s colour palette features smokey blues, dove greys and voco’s signature colour of honey gold,” explained Debra Ryan, Design Manager, Modieus. “The finished look is refined with upscale and luxurious qualities. We designed a combination of Axminster and hand tufted carpets and rugs for different areas of the hotel.”

Modieus have injected a refinement not usually seen in standard Axminster carpets. The sophisticated 3D effect in the corridor and guestroom carpets in soft pastels, blue and greys makes a strong design statement and visually underpins the interior.

The restaurant carpet has touches of voco yellow. For the rooftop Blacksmith Brasserie and Bar, Modieus designed a distressed, texture parquet effect with a neutral grey base and highlights of vibrant blue and orange. This contemporary approach to Axminster design creates the voco look, with all the comfort and ambience a carpet brings to a space.

“We continue to push the boundaries of what is achievable in carpets,” said Xander Okhuizen, Founder, Modieus. “Our meticulous attention to design, colouration and using different yarn types such as shiny nylon takes Axminster construction to different level.”

Specialists in all types of carpet construction, Modieus created luxurious hand tufted carpets with a low/high pile juxtaposition for the public areas and the library on level six, where this hidden gem provides guests with some quiet time to take in the views of the Melbourne city scape.

The statement hand-cut low/high pile running through the interior, accentuates the subtle lines and curves in the design. The yarns used in the weaving change from blue greys to soft, cool shades to enhance the elegant public spaces. The refreshing hospitality, modern charm and those views to spark conversation, makes voco Melbourne the perfect destination to relax, socialise and enjoy the city. Whether guests want to spend some well-deserved down time in their rooms, get social on the rooftop, or have a get-together at Blacksmith Bar and Grill, voco Melbourne provides a space for every moment.
