    Flooring case study: Hotel Indigo Adelaide

    With brand standards of the hotel brand Hotel Indigo stating that ‘no two hotels are the same’, the interior design team at IHG called upon the ‘rugtrepeneurs’ at Modieus to design colourful and personality-packed rugs inside the rooms and suites at Hotel Indigo Adelaide…


    The sixteen-storey boutique hotel on Market Street is the first Hotel Indigo in Adelaide and the sixth signing for the brand in Australasia, following Hotel Indigo Brisbane Fortitude Valley, Melbourne Docklands, Sydney Central, Melbourne Little Collins Street and Auckland.

    Crucially, no two Hotel Indigo properties are the same, with each drawing on the story of its local area to inspire every aspect of the hotel to help guests feel part of the destination.

    With its vibrant atmosphere and special place in Adelaideans’ hearts, there would be few neighbourhoods more apt for a Hotel Indigo than the Central Market precinct. The boutique hotel rooms pay homage to the legendary festivals of the city. The modern colour palette is brightened by natural light and colourful wall art, inspired by neighbourhood festival posters. Locally influenced decor is celebrated in the famed tessellated tile patterns of Adelaide with copper fixtures harking back to South Australia’s copper mining history.

    Built in 1869, Adelaide Central Market is one of Adelaide’s best-known landmarks, and one of Australia’s largest fresh produce markets providing a range of fresh and multi-cultural products, including fruit & vegetables, meat & seafood, cafes, breads and much more.

    The ambience is joyful, any time, any day. Modieus worked on this fabulous project with architectural practice @loucaszahosarchitects and developer @GuavaLime to create contemporary, playful yet refined interiors which celebrates the many flavours, colours, and milestones of Adelaide.

    Modieus were delighted to supply the rugs for each guestroom, owner Xander Okhuizen said, “It was great to work with architects Loucas Zahos and developers GuavaLime. The tessellated tiles of South Australia’s 19th century houses inspired our colourful geometric flooring. Shape-shifting and colour-swapping from room to room to reflect the neighbourhood’s diversity – beauty really is in the details.”
