A refreshed new look and branding will be unveiled on 22 May, following a HK$10 million makeover by YOO Studio.
A new-look façade reveals a street-level lobby while the main entrance, previously tucked away discreetly in Irving Street, is now switched to a much larger and more prominent entry in Pennington Street.
Interiors also have a creative new lease of life bearing avant garde design elements, from playfully coloured fabrics to eclectic imported European furniture. Yellow, orange and red tinted glass panels inscribed with Chinese motifs of coins, dragons and bamboo are introduced as symbols of good fortune.
The makeover is being completed with a bright design for the hotel’s 32 studios and 24 suites, which are styled in four vivid colour themes. The property offers a lobby conference space as well as a penthouse meeting room.
