A bespoke wine room for a high-end hotel
Melbourne’s iconic QT hotel needed a bespoke wine room display to showcase their premium wine selection. More than an off-the-shelf cool room, the experience had to mesh with the hotel’s modern, sleek interior.
When it was time to create the wine room, the designers came to Carona. Nic Graham — a high-end interior design practice — was responsible for the design of QT’s public areas. Nic had an overarching vision: contemporary and concrete design with vintage elements. The guest rooms feature mid-century style black frames, and this element flowed through to the wine room, with black aluminium frames encasing a floor-to-ceiling glass display.
Carona brought Nic Graham’s vision to life. He was struck by how easy it was to customise the wine room — it became an integral part of the space, not a prefabricated addition. Nic added design details to the framework, including bolt work, for visual continuity. And all this was possible because of detailed design conversations with Carona.
