burn in the space, to the creative soundtracks that play, to the concierge, and the neutral tones in our soft furnishings that create a calming energy. It really is beyond design. IS THERE A PARTICULAR ARCHITECTURAL ERA OR STYLE THAT RESONATES W ITH YOU? We are drawn to creating spaces that can be easily changed or updated to our liking or mood. I suppose the 1950s Scandinavian design era really resonates with us. La Porte Space has a neutral canvas and an abundance of natural light, it’s very easy to update the look with soft furnishings or one-off pieces. WHICH D ESIGNERS AND ARTISTS DO YOU ADMIRE? We admire the work of Pierre Yovanovitch, Charles Zana, Gilles & Boissier and Arne Jacobsen. We love the work of Picasso and Franz Kline too. COULD YOU TELL US ABOUT THE RECENTLY UNVEILED WELLNESS OFFERINGS AT L A PORTE? La Porte Wellness is an Australian rst mecca for mind, body and beauty, bringing together leaders in luxury beauty, including Rationale, Kristen Fisher Eyebrows, a luxurious infrared detox sauna space and a boutique reformer pilates studio. La Porte Wellness also hosts leaders in luxury wellness and events and pop-ups. The design was carefully considered to create a calming effect. Colour palettes, sound and scent selection were all key to the brief. WHAT PROJECTS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO IN THE COMING YEAR? We are thrilled to be developing La Porte Group’s rst luxury boutique hotel, Maison La Porte in the Noosa hinterland, slated to open stage one in late 2019, that will fuse luxury with a progressive take on sustainability. We are hoping to challenge the industry and make some impactful changes to the hotel experience. La Porte Space will also be hosting its Paris Pop-up next September that will for the rst time showcase a fashion and wellness mecca during Paris Fashion Week. laportespace.com.au
