March Studio designed the grand stair that leads to the foyer and the ground floor of Hotel Hotel.


The gist of Rodney Eggleston and the March studio’s design process is as follows – let the location inform the materials, and then let the materials inform the design. In Nishi’s case, the creative catalyst was the splendour of the construction site itself: chaotic but precise.

This process, inspiration and philosophy led to the sourcing of reclaimed timber collected from a house, a basketball court; from the Nishi construction site itself and from off cuts of Nishi’s own lovely Blackbutt (Eucalyptus pilularis) timber façade.
