ADEL­PHI Ho­tel

The new star of Mel­bourne’s bou­tique ho­tel scene, the Adel­phi Ho­tel, is the world’s first “dessert” ho­tel. “The colours and tex­tures of the ho­tel are all based on desserts,” says de­signer Fady Hachem. “But it’s not weird. It’s not too out there. It’s very com­fort­able and done sub­tly.” Orig­i­nally built in 1938 as a ware­house for the cloth­ing trade, Adel­phi Ho­tel re­tains the build­ing’s sig­na­ture ware­house style with metal-framed win­dows and a con­crete façade. Hachem in­fused the in­te­ri­ors with rich, choco­late-toned fur­nish­ings, car­pets pat­terned like cakes, “liquorice all­sorts” stools, and the smell of bak­ing in the air.

The de­sign is in­spired by our fic­tional tale of the cur­rent gen­er­a­tion who would now in­habit this stately res­i­dence.”
