March & White understand the importance of a holistic design language that traverses the DNA of each project from the inside out, merging architecture and interior design. Inspiration is drawn from stories, fashion, collaborations and travels.
The superyacht division of March & White has over 25 years specialist experience and challenges the conventional norms of design. Drawing on their expansive residential design experience, March & White are able to deliver exceptional superyacht interiors.
March & White are also able to work with clients to infuse their own personality into the smallest details of each unique project by creating distinct personalised products.
March & White start by mapping out initial concept mood boards to help understand the client’s aspirations and lifestyle.
Detailed designs and visualisations are then produced and discussions had with the client to determine how the design is processing.
The design is then further developed and furnishing and fixtures are selected. The client is involved every step of the way as it is ultimately their own special place being created.
March & White was founded by friends Elliot March and James White who met in the 90’s at Oxford University. Prior to opening the firm they had both worked for leading studios like Daniel Libeskind Studio, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands and Stiff & Trevillion.
Notable projects the duo have since had the pleasure of collaborating on include the 125 Greenwich development, private members clubs “The Arts Club” and “Devonshire Club”, residential project Royalty Mews and interiors of superyachts like MY Top Gun, Carrara and Project Jupiter.
“As an architect I have worked with, and learned from, some of the world’s great practices. I apply this learning through other creative discipline connecting my work to a complex frame of reference and influence. This leads to unexpected junctions and direction. This, for me, is the intrigue and excitement of design.
To create is my instinctive default. I am fascinated by the process that turns a vague, abstract idea into a tangible object or place that is effective, functional and beautiful. A luxury.
As a lifelong passionate sailor, this instinct enabled a longstanding dream to design the interiors of iconic super-yachts. A deep understanding and love of the water intuitively informs our maritime work. Designing interiors which respond to the elemental qualities of the ocean: colour, movement and light, is a thrill to me. “
“My training and qualifications are as an architect. It is only a single element, though, to the wide creative horizon I follow in my work. It brings a logic and objectivity to my process.
As far back as I can remember, I was fascinated by the appearance of places and objects. I was committed to aesthetics before I knew of the word, I suppose.
I treasure objects which increase in allure as they age. The patina on a piece of timber or leather as it evolves. These are nuances which enrich everything I am drawn to.
My tastes have always ignored the annotation of time. I am drawn to a very specific idea of understated, quiet and intriguing elegance. I can find this in something entirely contemporary or, equally, something of greater age.”
