Located in the Melbourne’s couture and historical equestrian district (Little Collins), Next Hotel opened its doors during the Covid pandemic. The 304 room hotel was designed by the well-known Paul Wiste for Next Story Group, Singapore. No detail was compromised.
At least 2 years prior to it’s initial opening Swisstrade was engaged locally (Australian team) and regionally (Singapore based Paul Wiste) to specify, design, source and create a schedule and customised collection of guest room OS&E. From the horse motif tissue boxes in the bathrooms to natural looking unvarnished coat hangers, there was great investment of time in making sure the materials, colours and finishes were right, not just alright.
