Naumi Hotel | Auckland Airport

The existing, worse for wear, hotel required a complete overhaul inside and out. Create a distinctively unique NZ boutique hotel encompassing the ideals of the Naumi brand: playful, unexpected, sexy, youthful and considered, was the first key directive. The second was to create a hotel like no other in the NZ market - a truly exhilarating experience and feast for all senses, with “absolutely no white!”. The old Hotel Grand Chancellor Auckland-Airport required an entire re-fit, from adding a new front to the building and signage, to reception, bar, lounges and restaurant areas through to the bedrooms.
“ a space that bridges the gap between residence and hotel; a playground for well-travelled souls with sweet spots and an unexpected sense of theatre.”
