Kelly Wearstler, considered to be one of the finest female designers in the world, developed a new luxury hotel in Austin’s magnificent perspective, in a distinctive way.
The Austin Proper Hotel & Apartments consists of a sculptural building of 32 storeys, which merge a 244-room hotel with 99 premium residences.
Located at the cultural crossroads of the Second Street District in the centre of Austin, the project was created as a consequence of visual cooperation between Kelly Wearstler, Handel Architects, and McGuire Moorman Hospitality.
The building is located within Austin’s creative core, with the design supervision of Kelly Wearstler, who takes into account the distinctive influences of artistic and craftsmanship traditions, which are unique to the Texan city. Austin’s most majestic luxury residences have a rich, unique atmosphere.
Eye-catching details include a sculptural staircase installation of 60 patch-worked vintage rugs and a monolithic timber and ceramic grandfather clock in the lobby of Kelly Wearstler’s boutique hotel. Surfaces add textural interest, with local artists and materials featuring prominently throughout. Such elements include pots, trays and cabinet inlay tiles by ceramicist Rick Van Dyke; locally quarried travertine on the pool deck; Delta wood paneling; native elmwood; and antique mirror finishes.
Each of the 244 rooms and suites counts Austin as a muse and is heavily influenced by local craft, from raw travertine sourced from nearby quarries to original fiber artworks by Magda Sayeg and trays by Rick Van Dyke. Branded touches include Kelly Wearstler x Parachute Home robes and signature Proper beds layering Simmons Providence Mattresses, Fili D’oro, and Bellino Fine Linens.
