Novotel Citygate Hong Kong / Hotel

Discipline: China

Discipline: China

“This is, perhaps, one of those rare times that a hotel has been designed inside out.” Contemporary minimalism has been chosen as the perfect design medium – opting for mood, elegance, and careful shading and tone to both counter and harmonize the physical scale. From lobby, F&B outlets to rooms, it managed to retain hotel’s splendour, style and personality. Welcoming by the warm brown travertine stone and beige colour scheme, the mood is heightened by the subtle Chinese elements: Chinese ink painting-like stone textures plus wind chimes-like chandeliers presenting a sense of void against the solid yin-yang with natural music.
