Drake Devonshire Design in Wellington

Architecture Era Architects

This late 1880s foundry building boasts a cantilevered dining room in a grand A-frame setting with Douglas fir lining.

The hotel’s most striking architectural feature is its creative use of wood and glass. While the former adds solidity and an Old World feel, the latter gives the structure an inviting aspect from the outside while augmenting the stunning views from within and also creating a light and airy feel.

Black, white, and natural woods contrast smartly with bright splashes of color and patterns...

while leather, custom furniture, Douglas fir beams, glass, marble, wool, Brooklyn’s Flavour Paper wallpaper, and more, add textual depth. Poems by the late Al Purdy can be found in each guestroom along with a custom Rick Leong mural behind every bed.

Art & Culture All around eclectic

Drake is partnered with such institutions as Toronto’s Museum of Contemporary Art and the Canadian Art Foundation.

While the artwork on exhibition is constantly revolving, pieces that have graced the property include a 75-foot mural by Bryce Wymer and Gordon Monahan’s “Piano Listening to Itself”. Works from such names as Alex McLeod, Kendra Yee, Adrian Esparza, Dahae Song, and George Little also feature.

Bonus beauty

The nostalgic at heart will also love the Drake Motor Inn, a pet/family-friendly nod to the classic roadside motel...

and a modern traveler’s boutique entry point for exploration—located just blocks from the Drake Devonshire. Enveloped by Prince Edward County’s famous wine country, the 12-room inn is brimming with curious art and photography installations and offers guests complimentary Polaroids for “vintage” selfies. A communal living room, an outdoor terrace and firepit, and a skating rink round out a history-rich adventure.
