We centre design around the authenticity that people crave

Melbourne based Interior Architecture & Design studio, Mitchell & Eades, combines timeless sophistication with a contemporary vision of human experience.

We bring global intelligence, and a respect for the local history and culture, to design for three specific audiences – the Guest, the Client and the Operator.

Hotels are – more than ever – influenced by hospitality. It is our job to extend the hospitality experienced in Food and Beverage and Wellness venues throughout entire properties. We are uniquely positioned to offer a luxury and lifestyle design strategy which is truly bespoke.

With a focus on spaces which cannot be tethered to a single point in time, combined with a level of empathy for design which extends far beyond the aesthetic, our knowledge will transcend any expectation – globally.

Mitchell & Eades is represented in seven global cities, with M&E Satellite Office, JV Partnerships and local M&E consultants located in: Melbourne, Sydney, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Bangkok, Delhi and Dubai.

 

Sustainability at Mitchell & Eades

 

Core to Mitchell & Eades is an understanding that form and function should always unite. Mother nature is the ultimate designer, and our ethos is to embed her into each and every one of our designs.

We design with a preference for antimicrobial, locally sourced and sustainable materials – to not only provide longevity – but also reduce our carbon footprint. We create a circular economy for our designs through multiple facets which helps to create our cyclical story.

Discreet technology plays an integral role within our designs, creating an omni-channel approach that provides a seamless guest experience without a damaging impact on the environment. A strong and reliable foundation for any interaction is created through technology, while guests experience human touch on arrival to make their stay memorable.

We firmly believe that sharing sustainability values and activities across our global projects can have far reaching effects.
