THE PRINCE HOTEL

Megan Hounslow as former director as meme design

“St Kilda esplanade, bicycles and candy coloured ice-creams.”


The refurbishment of the iconic Prince Hotel offers a boutique experience, echoing its St Kilda beachside location. The interior design approach continues to preserve the hotels original art deco architecture, offering a softer palette of alternating textures and hues, suggestive of Miami beaches and candy coloured ice-creams.


The furniture and lighting showcase the diverse artesian makers to the hotels international market. Each light filled room offers a capsule of colour and texture, with handmade oak chairs by HR McCarthy, generous armchairs by Jardan, blush concrete tables by Nood Co, brass pendants by ISM Objects and a photography series by Kate Ballis.


This destination hotel offers a unique quality to its visitors - every element has been thoughtfully considered to balance a fresh aesthetic with a relaxed and comfortable interior.
