Offering over 350 rooms, the new 5-star Pullman and 3.5-star ibis hotels will be built at Brisbane Airport’s Domestic Terminal Precinct.
The development of the landscape design posed numerous challenges due to the airport location and associated planting restrictions. Detailed research into appropriate flowering trees and shrubs was undertaken to select an suitable palette and composition for the hotel development.
The entry drive and paving follow a bold, contemporary linear pattern to mitigate the expense of hard scape while complementing the architectural language. The simple pattern allows for clear delineation and transition between vehicular and pedestrian access throughout the site. The entry plaza is framed by dense subtropical planting leading into the hotel foyers. Extending from the restaurant space a freeform leisure pool with a 20 metre lap pool, poolside daybeds and pergolas, have been composed for guests relaxing in transit or waiting for a flight.
The Pullman Ibis Hotel will be a development that sets a new entry landmark for Brisbane City.
