Design Practice Location:
Tribe is an artfully curated and refreshingly affordable design hotel. With Walton’s signature sleek luxe aesthetic, the designers have created an edited luxury experience that is part social destination and part gallery space. The result is a sophisticated sanctuary for the urban aesthete. On the ground floor a flowing series of installed spaces are separated by subtle joinery (no edge-to-edge walls), incorporating a relaxed reception area and an open plan social/work space where co-working is as encouraged as enjoying coffee or casual drinks. The focal point of the lobby is a 2.7-metre-high feature wall that will showcase a changing collection of works from Australian artists; this will be carefully curated by the hotel to create a in-house gallery and a striking backdrop to the foyer.
