Let’s see some projects:
JW Marriott Galaxy Macau
The 5-Star JW Marriott Hotel Macau is one which highlights iconic yet approachable luxury, through stunning craftsmanship and intuitive service. This hotel being Asia’s largest JW Marriott, with 1,015 hotel rooms and suites, boasts a prime location set within Galaxy Macau, a world class entertainment and leisure destination.
Asian Heart is a continued legacy and philosophy of Galaxy Macau. The elegant guestrooms and suites styled with 5-star sophistication and boasting state-of-the-art technology evoke understated luxury and innovation through the use of engaging color palettes, richly textured carpets and accent furniture. Hues of calming blues and greens mixed with tones of golden beige hints, add an unexpected dash of color that stimulate the senses. Throughout the property unconventional modern features are balanced out with the traditional elements keeping everything in tune with the JW Marriott’s brand. NUO Beijing
Date Completed: June 2015
HBA developed the concept of NUO, China’s first high end Hotel brand, as a customized experience for the Chinese guest within China. As such, the four founding concepts of the NUO brand are ‘Chinese,’ ‘Contemporary,’ ‘Luxury,’ and ‘Green.’ From these starting points, the design of each NUO hotel in China will be unique to itself and set within the context of its geography, thus creating an authentic experience rooted in research and designed to create an innate feeling of ‘belonging’ and cultural heritage.
The flagship, NUO Beijing, is located in the capital’s thriving Chaoyang District near the Forbidden Palace and the famed Hutong area. This context led HBA to create an interior design palate inspired from the Ming Dynasty of the 14th to 17th Centuries- a high point in Chinese culture and art that saw a flowering in painting, ceramics, lacquerware and porcelain- but updated to fit 21st century expectations. Indigo Bangkok
Hotel Indigo Bangkok opened as the lifestyle brand’s first location in South East Asia with a unique design that strongly reflects its surroundings’ culture, character and history. The site on Wireless Road, the birthplace of Thai Radio, home to foreign Embassies and a long-standing center of silk production, is making the neighborhood a fascinating mix of Thai tradition and international style.
HBA found plenty of inspiration to weave into the design, creating a stylish, contemporary architectural environment where vintage elements are innovatively combined with modern, bright colored materials. The result is a fresh, cheerful and contemporary space with a vibrant, inviting atmosphere, set to make the guest feel welcome and at home. Source: Best Interior Designers
