A hidden gem in the Hong Kong neighbourhood of Tin Hau, the elegance of this boutique hotel sets it apart from competitors. Rather than following the typical design language of a luxury hotel, the designers explored material textures with surface treatment techniques, and so the design enhances the natural beauty of the materials. The muted tones of the interior and clever play of light and shadow encourage guests to enjoy their stay.
