Swaney Draper Architects brought the historic building to life through their philosophy of designing buildings that are ‘honestly inventive in terms of their aesthetic and functional solutions’.

The Melbourne landmark now sports contemporary design solutions that move away from the formal commercial approach typical of hotel design. The feeling of domestic intimacy that the Hotel Lindrum design evokes is both refreshing and architecturally innovative.


International designers, Terry Fripp and Neil Bradford formed their partnership in early 1998. Terry is an interior architect who has worked on a number of smaller resort hotels, for example the Chedi Bandung and the Serai East Bali along with a number of private residences throughout Asia. Neil's experience lies in designing prestige residential interiors, having working throughout Europe and the United Sates for numerous years.

With the Hotel Lindrum project, they created a concept that is not what you would normally expect from hotels - a hotel as a home - with attention to features that provide reassuring comfort and tranquillity that our homes offer. The combination of their talents has resulted in a stylish, club like atmosphere that has been the focus of much media attention and publicity.


The lighting has been designed and made by a number of various companies. The down lights are by Megalit and work on a central control dimmer bank to create ambiance and allow staff to adjust the lighting to create a particular mood. Ism Objects, a Melbourne based company are responsible for the design and make of the majority of other lighting features in the hotel.
