• Woods Bagot complete InterContinental ballroom refurbishment

    17 April 2012

    Inspired by the hotel’s unique position on Victoria Harbour, the design for the refurbished ballroom at InterContinental Hong Kong 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 hotel’s impressive white marble staircase greets guests upon arrival, sweeping up from the hotel’s lobby to a pre-function area. From here, attention is drawn to the impressive walnut doors that lead into the Ballroom.

    “The walnut doors equipped with oversized metal and brass handles resound a circular motif – symbolizing peace, energy and welcome upon entry; giving us an opportunity to incorporate feng-shui principles into the design – depicting the true experience of Hong Kong,” concluded Jones.

    Billed as Hong Kong’s equivalent of the New York High Line, Wan Chai Connect is a vision for the future, weaving old Wan Chai and the harbour, back together.
