Little National Hotel is located in Barton, Canberra, a short distance from Parliament House. The 120 room hotel, with architecture and interior design by Redgen Mathieson, embraces the concept of ‘affordable luxury’, and is located on top of a four level carpark. The carpark is sheathed in perforated dark metal panels to enable natural ventilation, with edge strips in bright orange gold that reference the Golden Sun Moth, a fragile species whose natural habitat is the adjacent York Park. At night, the strips are illuminated to activate the hotel faade. A dark glass curtain wall clads the hotel facade.
