2018 saw QT Perth open its doors after an extensive and considered design period. Bringing a sense of industrial glamour and style to the already impressive design landscape of our Western capital, the hotel is QT’s first west coast property.
With 184 immaculate rooms spread over 18 levels, The QT signature design aesthetic of bold themes and dramatic concepts has been replicated magnificently in QT Perth.
Followed their work at the successful QT Melbourne project, JEB Custom Projects once again teamed up with Indyk Architects to help create an interior based on chic European warehouses of the early twentieth century. The completed QT Perth features a customized system of panels and sliding doors, allowing for seamless connections between the bedrooms and the bathrooms of individual suites, easily accommodating the different room types.
The partitions featured in the rooms have been built with fluted glass panels and aluminium profiles, complete with power sockets and associated cabling to offer a total service and privacy function for guests. Serving as a wall and a sliding door for the bathroom, the frames are equally functional and lightweight. This was achieved using aluminium in the framing, which is practical and aesthetically charming, creating an industrial yet contemporary style.
The aluminium profiles, once assembled, were then welded together and powder coated to allow the colour of each piece to flow in the joints and gaps for a seamless result. For ease of delivery and installation, each individual room type was packaged in its own box, with associated custom hardware, and sent to site for simple hanging by the building team at Built Constructions.
The bespoke lighting design is another strong feature of the QT Perth suites. To provide an adequate amount of privacy for the bathroom, the JEB team ingeniously treated the glass by adding textures to the back side of the glass panels. This solution ensures the rooms remain well lit, private and exquisite.
Through great partnerships comes great design, for QT Perth, the work between Indyk Architects and JEB Custom Projects, that great result is clear in every facet of the hotel.
