InterContinental Hong Kong
Woods Bagot has recently completed the ballroom refurbishment of the InterContinental, Hong Kong. Inspired by the hotel’s unique position on Victoria Harbour, the design for the refurbished ballroom glistens, yet bestows a feeling of understated and refined luxury. “For the redesign of the InterContinental Ballroom, our artistic point of departure came from recognizing the hotel’s unique location on the edge of Victoria Harbour. We were inspired by the imagery of the harbour at sunset with its shimmering golden glow, its complex textures, colours and activity,” said Stephen Jones, Woods Bagot’s Regional Managing Principal Asia.

The Peak Hong Kong
Curious building shaped like a Wok on two legs, designed to look good on the skyline this is an early ‘icon building’. I felt that the place was a bit tacky and that the circulation was tight and confusing – and simply took in the magnificent view. Accessible by using the Peak Tram, a funicular ride through upper Hong Kong, taking you up to around 400m above sea level. Famously architect Zaha Hadid did one of her earliest building designs for The Peak architecture competition.
