New hotel offers seaside view

A large seascape by Dunedin artist Simon Kaan is featured in a semi-transparent glass facade for a new hotel, "Ebb-Dunedin", in Filleul St.

Developed through Dunedin family property investment group CL Hotels, Ebb-Dunedin would be ready to welcome guests by early next year, CL Hotels development manager Dylan Cazemier said.

The exterior was complete and interior work was expected to be finished by the end of the year.

The boutique hotel would provide guests with "relaxed luxury", Mr Cazemier said.

He was delighted with the artwork.

Waka shapes are a motif in Kaan’s art and they also feature on the hotel frontage.

Kaan graduated from Otago Polytechnic School of Art in 1993 with a diploma of fine arts in printmaking (Hons).
