Interiors and architecture practice March Studio’s latest residential project located on Spring Street in Melbourne’s CBD is an evolving case study of light and materiality. The two-bedroom apartment once belonged to March Studio founders Rodney Eggleston and Anne-Laure Cavigneaux before they entrusted it to the current owners, a retired couple looking to embark on their next chapter. Celebrated for their radical residential, hospitality and retail spaces, notably AESOP stores, this project exposes the lesser-known side of Rodney and Anne-Laure’s illustrious firm.
The apartment is situated within a heritage-listed Brutalist-style building finished in 1972 with views to Parliament House and Yunken Freeman’s State Government Offices. March Studio initially left their mark on the building in 2016 when they gave the lobby a much-needed facelift, so this time, it was like reuniting with an old friend.
