Kirkpatrick's Hotel (also known as Kirk's) is on the Esplanade Mornington overlooking Port Phillip Bay.
The building style seems to be like a meeting of worlds.
Classical style columns are set in a very modern piece of architecture.
The external colour theme is black and white with a touch of red in the umbrellas.

Even the side wall incorporates a column feature.

Bold, stylish facade
Column inserts and dark glass
Touch of red contrast

It's an interesting design Gemma and it has an excellent position overlooking the bay, I bet it's a popular spot.

I like it, but I wonder if it will wear well over time. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

I do like the design very much, it's different! Looks like a fun place! Great post for the day, Gemma, as always! Hope you have a great week!

Those kind of hotel designs don't appeal to me but I love your photos. The pop of red against the grey building is a nice colour combination too!

I like the design but I hope the surrounding buildings are similar designs or it would look out of place. Beautiful capture with great colors. Have a wonderful day.

I really do like the linear quality of these 2 pictures. I find the hotel to be most appealing and attractive. The red umbrellas really set off the gray. genie

No one at Kirk's on this grey day? What a pity not to take advantage of those brilliant scarlet umbrellas!


Boy in bright red shorts,
With a shirt of blue,
Strolling on the Malecón —
I wish I were you;

Carefree and content,
Nothing much to do,
Chillin’ in your bright red shorts
And your shirt of blue.
