Moss 25 | Circa Morris-Nunn Chua Architects

Commercial Architecture

MOSS 25 is a 21-suite boutique hotel tucked away in the upper floors of a historic sandstone building and a new 5-storey tower discreetly sitting behind the warehouses in the centre of Salamanca Place. Hidden from the street, MOSS is a secret world, one that seeks to bring Hobart’s wilderness hinterland right into the urban centre.

MOSS 25 is stage 2 of the MOSS hotel project following the success of MOSS 39. The design response embodies perceptions of Hobart and Tasmania as a culturally independent and artistically adventurous community, the architecture complimented with bespoke, contemporary Tasmanian-designed furniture, signage and loose furnishings. The subdued colours are offset by green hues, enriching the abstracted mossy identity.

The result is an effective alternative to bland corporate tourism offerings in an increasingly competitive tourism market.
