Presenting a distinctive addition to the eclectic inner-suburban Melbourne neighbourhood of Fitzroy, the StandardX will open its doors in March.

A collaboration between Adelaide-based global architectural studio Woods Bagot and multi-disciplinary design practice Hecker Guthrie, the 125-room property boasts a minimalist, “modern retro” aesthetic which features polished terrazzo floors, leather couches, furniture by Danish brand Hay, bespoke artworks by Jane Sinclair and Egyptian cotton sheets on built-in beds.

The imposing rust-coloured building includes a signature fire-engine red revolving door at the entrance. For the working traveller, an open workspace off the lobby provides a comfortable environment for guests to work on their laptops beside an industrial fireplace.

Food takes centrestage with an all-day Thai diner called Bang, led by chef Justin Dingle-Garciyya. The hotel also boasts a rooftop bar named (appropriately enough!) ‘The Roof’, exclusively available to hotel guests. This rooftop venue offers panoramic views of the city and serves Mexican-inspired dishes, including tacos, ceviche and cocktails.
