Jackalope Hotel Mornington Peninsula

Get ready to be captivated by a level of luxury and high end installation in hotel fit-outs without peer. The newly launched Jackalope Hotel, nestled within the picturesque Willow Creek Vineyard, is situated just an hour’s drive from Melbourne on the Mornington Pensinsula.

The name Jackalope is a creature of legend best described as a rabbit with horns, a portmanteau of “jackrabbit” and “antelope”. The hotel bar, Flaggerdoot, is the collective noun for a group of Jackalopes, while the fine dining restaurant Doot Doot Doot is also known as the leader of a Flaggerdoot.

Comprising 46 luxurious rooms and a 30-metre infinity pool, the hotel boasts boldly curated art commissions and installations incorporating a whimsical approach which was achieved by collaborating with some of the world’s leading designers to create the overall vision.

The moody interiors are clad in dark zinc with charred timber and black metal detailing. Floor to ceiling windows and private terraces connect guests to the picturesque surrounds. Bathrooms include black Japanese tubs, double vanities and bath products made exclusively for the hotel by Hunter Lab. Melbourne designer Zuster have provided the furniture.

Owner Louis Li purchased Willow Creek Vineyard in 2013, along with the Maria George Building in the Melbourne CBD, which is earmarked as the site for a second property under the Jackalope Hotels umbrella.

Concrete House in Torquay Australia

This concrete house, designed for a young growing family by Auhaus Architecture Australia is located in Torquay on the Victorian Surf Coast. The house has been designed as a walled sanctuary, opening up onto itself, an internalised habitat with draping roof gardens and curated glimpses onto the adjoining wetlands. A portal opening in the concrete facade conceals a small secluded courtyard leading to the glazed front door. Upon entry, the house opens up into double height gallery space, glazed on one side to reveal the plan which wraps around a large, north facing courtyard. Each floor rests on slender columns, the fine lines counterpointing the natural mass of the concrete. Hardwood battens and brass detailing throughout provide patterning and warmth.
