A new five-star hotel is coming to Halifax’s waterfront.
“Muir is a physical and spiritual manifestation of Nova Scotia, exploring materiality and craftsmanship of our past yet imparting a contemporary relevance,” says Scott Armour McCrea, president and CEO of the Armour Group. “Anyone who visits Muir will see this softly spoken in every detail.”
Canadian designers Studio Munge are behind Muir, which is the Gaelic word for sea. The hotel takes inspiration from the forces that have shaped Nova Scotia and its people, including its rugged architecture, sea-faring traditions, strong, resilient character, warmth and hospitality. It will feature Nova Scotia design, decor, amenities, art collection and refined regional dining.
Furniture and lighting will be bespoke, designed and made in Canada, reflecting a modern interpretation of traditional East Coast design. Each hotel room will feature original art and pottery from Atlantic Canadian artists.
Muir is expected to welcome guests in 2021.
