The hotel is a home… a home for everyone

So good they named it twice, Hotel Hotel offers more than just hospitality. Molonglo Group has created a cultural hub for the entire Canberra community.

Top five take-outs

1. Do diversity. It lies at the heart of creativity and excitement.

2. Embrace chaos. ‘We’re fascinated by mess and the idea of messy arrangements,’ says Efkarpidis.

3. Promote public space. Hotel Hotel’s cultural programmes invite members of the public in to use and enjoy the hotel.

4. Develop your idea of development. Molonglo Group sees itself as serving the community.

5. Dive into delight. ‘Places of delight allow us to create our own identities and think more curiously about life,’ says Efkarpidis.
