The Botanical Hotel, Melbourne

The Botanical Hotel in South Yarra, affectionately known as The Bot, is regarded by many as Melbourne’s first gastro pub and one of the city’s most iconic venues. Ideally located opposite Melbourne’s bucolic Botanic Gardens, The Botanical has long been a favourite venue for Melburnians and interstate visitors who seek out its’ top quality food, relaxing bar and excellent people-watching position.

Brintons were commissioned by Webb+ to design and manufacture a bespoke carpet, for the new restaurant space at The Botanical. Brintons manufactured woven Axminster carpet that was installed flush with the surrounding hard flooring to provide a fitted rug effect.

I wanted the heroes of the restaurant space to be the artwork, the carpet and the people and looking at the finished result I believe that‘s exactly what we’ve achieved. When I saw the Brintons Stacy Garcia design I felt it was a perfect match for our chosen refurbishment palette, no changes required. Additionally from experience I knew that Brintons have a professional and responsive design service matched by the quality production required for this component of the project.
