Entry Description: Our aim is to create a uniquely “Canberran” hotel interior using circles and axes to respond to Walter Burley-Griffin’s original vision for the city. The interior is aesthetically integrated with the architectural expression of the hotel, creating a holistic approach to the building expression. The focus of the hotel is a dramatic circular interior space that unites the rooms. White circular balustrades contrast with darkened circulation spaces, allowing guests to discretely access their rooms while creating a heightened drama to the interior. A constellation of random circular skylights casts distinctive beams of light. Interior elements reference the circular geometry, enclosed functions on the ground floor are contained within gold-clad pods. The radial geometry of the rooms maximise connection with the view, while circular screens provide enhanced privacy. Warm natural materials including leather, wood and travertine creates a timeless interior, heightened by the use of reds, and oranges in the fabrics.
