The Shangri-la hotels and resorts is a hotel chain based in Hong Kong. It is the largest Asian based luxury hotel group in the region and this hotel was designed in anticipation of the world's spotlight in the Beijing Olympics. The work included providing interior design services for the serviced apartments (typical 1, 2 & 3 bedrooms) lift cars & corridors, lift and main entrance lobby. The overall design concept is created in a classic contemporary style. The monotony of the long corridors of the serviced apartments is overcome by introducing drops in the false ceiling at the entrance door of each apartment. Each entrance door is emphasized by the special play of 3 different timber textures with a special touch of led light to give a warm feeling.
The same theme continues into the serviced apartment lift car and lift lobby interiors. The main entrance lobby is designed to keep the large incoming traffic comfortable and isolated. Contrary to the lift lobby, the entrance lobby extensively portrays the use of modern materials such as steel and glass. Each category of rooms and suites is designed as a different colour scheme, carpet, case goods etc. to provide a luxury environment that is achieved through distinct foyers, special features and artistic touches.
