The Duke of Malborough Hotel

Here we worked with two couples in partnership as new owners of this historic hotel. This was a fun challenge flying to and from Auckland to Russell to design this project in stages – as like all new business and hotels in general, budget constraints meant for some creative thinking! We ended up achieving a design that they could follow through to the rest of the hotel, and we gained a Qualmark for a hotel that previously didn’t hold a rating at all. We simplified, modernised and updated tired and dated accommodation rooms.
