• ‘K11 ARTUS’ Luxury Hotel Residences to open in summer 2019 at Victoria Dockside Development

    11 September 2018

    (6 September 2018, Hong Kong) New World Development, one of Asia’s most celebrated developers, announces today its art and design district Victoria Dockside will feature a new luxury hotel residence concept. Located at the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, the residences, named K11 ARTUS, are scheduled to open in summer 2019.

    Comprising 287 residences and spanning across 14 storeys, ARTUS is an extension of the K11 brand, the global high-end lifestyle brand that embraces Art, People and Nature. Capturing these three core attributes of the K11 brand, the ARTUS name is a portmanteau combining the English word “Art” with the Latin term “Domus”, meaning ‘home.’ Within these individual residences, guests are presented with an inspiring environment to curate their own lifestyle and craft their own experiences.

    A port for creatives and intellectuals to gather, ARTUS is designed for worldly travellers who champion authenticity, appreciate personalisation and celebrate luxury. With eclectic touches and customised elements, each suite will be a private residence to inspire quiet contemplation and a personal connection.

    “ARTUS marks a major milestone for the K11 brand with our expansion into the hospitality sector,” said Mr. Adrian Cheng, K11 Founder, Executive Vice-Chairman of New World Development. “Our intention is to reshape the serviced apartment experience by designing private residences that encourage discerning visitors to reflect on profound ideas and pursue their creative passions. More than a place to live, ARTUS will be a welcoming space for intelligent minds to find inspiration.”

    A testament to creativity and collaboration, ARTUS reflects the combined talents of Asia’s most celebrated designers and international architectural firms. Kohn Pedersen Fox, the award-winning New York-based architectural studio, designed the building while Bangkok-based P Landscape (PLA) is responsible for the surrounding greenery that will form an integral part of the guest journey.

    Hong Kong-based globally acclaimed architect Andre Fu and his studio AFSO have been engaged to create the interiors. In designing ARTUS, Andre Fu drew inspirations from the spirit of historical venues where like-minded individuals gathered. Transversal in different cultures, these venues encourage critical thinking and the sharing of ideas. Building on this narrative, Andre imagined the interiors as a contemporary artist’s residence that rejuvenates and inspires creative minds. Guests will be invited to immerse themselves in a world of bespoke vintage-inspired furnishings, handcrafted details and whimsical twists.

    “ARTUS will distinguish itself from the corporate, mainstream concept of most serviced apartments, and set a new paradigm for the industry,” said Paul Cunningham, General Manager of Hospitality and Portfolio Management of New World Development. “The residences demonstrate craftsmanship, bespoke experiences, attention to detail, and present unparalleled views of the Victoria Harbour. Combining the convenience of hotels and the comfort of serviced apartments, ARTUS offers flexible rental plans from short- to long-term stays to accommodate the needs of our guests.”

    Boasting the open-air waterfront views of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island, ARTUS will be part of the groundbreaking Victoria Dockside development, the 3 million-square-foot art and design district in Tsim Sha Tsui. Described by US media as “Hong Kong’s Hudson Yards” and “Hong Kong’s most anticipated opening,” this US$2.6 billion development includes the K11 Atelier office tower and K11 MUSEA, a new ultra-high-end experiential retail, art, cultural and dining destination.
