    Hotel Hotel

    Architects Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin’s visionary early 20th-century blueprints for Australia's new capital were never fully realised, but their mystical modernism lives on, cited as a key influence by Hotel Hotel’s owners Johnathan and Nectar Efkarpidis and aesthetic curator Don Cameron. Deciding to focus on ‘how best to convey authenticity, narrative relevance and a curated experience that is personal’, they've combined carefully chosen 20th century furniture with primitive art, found objects, antiques and design work care of a team of ‘makers and artists’. Happily for Canberra, that means a hotel that’s unpretentious, sexily tactile and deeply evocative of place.
