• Lanson Place Hotel launches luxury penthouse suites

    10 July 2013

    Lanson Place Hotel in Causeway Bay has just unveiled six new luxury Penthouse Suites for nightly and long-term lease, designed by acclaimed Hong Kong practice Atelier B. Included are four spacious two-bedroom suites each boasting a princely 177 square metres and each uniquely designed and featuring rare original lithographic prints and etchings throughout, creatively combined with early 20th century antiques.

    9- One Bedroom Suite 1000sqft - II

    8- One Bedroom Suite 1000sqft - I“After completing the renovation of the hotel’s typical guestrooms, Atelier B was asked to design the six penthouse suites. We had to come up with a different concept for the resident who would stay longer with a style reflecting the sense of being at home, but away from home,” states Atelier B Director, Frederic Bourquin.

    The two one-bedroom suites each spanning areas of 93 square metres are insightfully designed to provide guests the perfect pied-a-terre where they are able to work or relax as they wish.

    Bourquin continues, “For two of the six penthouse units, the management wanted to experiment with a new formula or “DNA” which could be used as a benchmark for their other Asia based Hotels and Serviced Apartments. ”

    “This explains the very different style for rooms 2702 and 2802 which were meant to be clean, elegant, simple; the targeted customer a young couple or bachelor rather than a family with children. The space therefore had to be practical with plenty of flexibility regarding its use. For example, the round coffee table can be converted into a seating ottoman or simply stored under the fixed bench below the TV to maximise the space.”

    Satisfying long stay guests

    6- Prestige Suite 520-590sqftDespite the excellent service at the Lanson Place Hotel, Bourquin believes that the feeling of being home but away from home, with selected furniture, lighting, objects and artworks is what a long stay guest will look for. Comfort is essential to escape this always active city and finally, so is a clever use of storage space.

    “Atelier B does not place its emphasis on the current trends and fashions which are often short lived. Although always aware of what is happening in the vast world of design, the company’s design philosophy has always been founded on the values of high quality design and detailing, therefore delivering a timeless final product to the Client.”

    “In our suites the mood is eclectic, with unique furniture, lighting and artworks pieces, mainly French, selected by ourselves from different antique dealers and flea markets in Paris and other parts of France. Some pieces are 18th century while others are 1930’s to 1970’s. A cast bronze 1960’s lamp is flanked next to a Murano glass chandelier. 10- Two Bedroom Suite 1500sqftThese are mixed with more contemporary pieces, again based on comfort. Also most pieces of art and furniture have a story, a history behind them, as do many of the amazing fabrics, designed by “Gio Ponti” and “Pierre Frey”, just to name a few. Although we haven’t checked out other serviced units available in Hong Kong in detail, the Lanson Place penthouses are very different in that each one has unique and personal touches within quite neutral and soothing shells.”

    “Within these finished rooms, Atelier B is proud of the quality of detailing, the original artworks, the original specified fabrics and wallpapers (thank you Lanson Place!), and to have a very satisfied client at the end of the project, which really is our ultimate goal!”

    General Manager, Mr. Ian Brewis agrees, “We are delighted to present our new penthouse suites, each of them tailor-made to provide the privacy of apartment style living, supported by the hotel’s renowned personalised services, all in the great location of Causeway Bay. A hidden treasure in the heart of Hong Kong, a perfect home delivers style and harmony; our suites set a new benchmark and an ideal choice for executives.”
