March Studio designed the ground floor spaces of Hotel Hotel, a hotel in Canberra, Australia, developed by 50 different artists, designers and makers. Which features thousands of planks of reclaimed wood that are fixed around the walls and ceiling with steel rods. March Studio sourced most of the wood for the project directly from the site of the hotel itself.
The plan was to fill the interior with recycled timber, concrete beams and steel panelling. In the lobby, over 5,000 wooden offcuts were fixed around the walls and ceiling. The lengths are supported by steel rods that run from floor to ceiling, while more reclaimed timber was used to create a grand staircase.
