Located between Hong Kong’s vibrant districts of Causeway Bay and Happy Valley, the new Emperor Hotel will be the third boutique hotel of its kind for the prestigious Emperor
Hotel Group. The hotel stands at 25 storeys tall, accommodating 275 hotel suites, and a mixture of public amenities including lounges and restaurants at the podium levels, and
an open-air bar and function venue at the top level.
The hotel layout plan is designed to optimise views and privacy for each hotel suite, resulting in an irregular building form made up of a series of steps and triangulations. The façade design uses crisp white aluminium features, horizontally and diagonally, in contrast to black glazing to accentuate the triangulation of the building form. The podium and main entrance are made up of large clear glass walls and intricate GRC cladding feature walls.
Integrated custom built LED spot luminaires are concealed into the aluminium features to articulate the diagonal and horizontal elements, achieving elegant lighting effects and enhancing the building’s illuminated presence. The result is a contemporary and expressive piece of architecture, which creates an intentional distinction amongst surroundings of one of the city’s most vibrant districts.
