Brisbane Welcomes ‘The Fantauzzo’—Australia’s newest Art Series Hotel

Australia’s newest Art Series hotel is set to open in Brisbane in late March.

Book now and you’ll be one of the first guests at to experience the city’s new $100 million flagship Art Series Hotel, The Fantauzzo.

Named after and inspired by artist Australian Vincent Fantauzzo, The Fantauzzo will make statement beneath the iconic Story Bridge at Brisbane’s rejuvenated Howard Smith Wharves. The six-storey hotel weaves creativity and contemporary luxury through every level and blends of architecture, nature and art.

The hotel’s creators describe it as “seamlessly entwining art with the surrounding landscape and urban fabric.”

Vincent Fantauzzo, is a Melbourne-based Australian portrait artist known for his portraits of Heath Ledger, Brandon Walters, Matt Moran, Emma Hack, Baz Luhrmann, Asher Keddie and the like.

Located directly under Brisbane’s imposing Story Bridge, a challenging location both from a design and construction point of view, SJB Project Director Tristan Wong said integral to the hotel’s design was the idea it did not compromise the heritage buildings along Howard Smith Wharves which would remain clearly distinguishable.

“Brisbane is emerging as a vibrant city with a growing interest in the arts and our design plays off this notion to create what is to become a landmark hotel for the precinct,” he added.

Inside the hotel, the lobby features a double-height wall of glass that brings the cliff-face inside, while the guest rooms enjoy spectacular city views of the Brisbane River, tumbling greenery or the sculptured rock wall.

This will be the greenest Art Series hotel with some of the environmental friendly aspects of the development including: high performance glazing, low VOC materials, open corridors, cascading plants over the building’s facade, smart lighting and cross ventilated common spaces. All cars will be located underground so the riverfront is completely for human traffic, on foot or by bike, and tropical gardens.

The six-storey hotel will offer four distinct food and beverage outlets as well as an impressive rooftop pool boasting spectacular views of the Brisbane River and CBD, bar, gym and three conference rooms, fully equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual technology.
