Design Practice Location:
Traditionally, a Lingnan-style garden such as one that greets visitors to this space was designed to welcome the mansion owner as he returned home. This design is one much loved by the Cantonese who live in the subtropical climate. The design team chose a traditional Chinese Guan Mao chair as a theme of the painting hanging at the hotel entrance, symbolising the greeting of guests ‘back home’. At the same time, the design blends furniture styles and French influences to create the idea of artistic living.
