Construction commenced on The Hari Hotel in Hong Kong
Construction has commenced on The Hari Hotel in Hong Kong recently. Due to open in early 2020, the 210-room luxury hotel in Wanchai, Hong Kong island builds on the success of Harilela family’s signature hotel in London. It will be the first hotel in Hong Kong and Asia to be operated under the family’s own signature brand.
     Atkins was appointed by Origin One Ltd of the Harilela Group as the lead consultant to design and deliver this project. Jason Hutchings, senior design director of Atkins said: “Constrained city sites are always a challenge, but that’s where we excel. Notwithstanding the statutory requirement to accommodate drop-off and parking on the site, we have created a distinctive guest arrival experience, and maximised the opportunity for this project to be a hospitality and entertainment focal point, serving both Causeway Bay and Wanchai.”
     On arrival, visitors to the hotel will pass through a welcoming but lively covered drop-off, and ascend to check-in within a luxurious and unique podium lobby, which offers signature entertainment and relaxation.
     All guest rooms are designed with an enviable vista along Lockhart Road in the dynamic district of Wanchai, whilst the penthouses are rewarded with stunning views across the wider cityscape. The full-height glazing to all rooms provides a dramatic experience connecting hotel guests to the vibrancy of Wanchai. However, whilst open and contemporary, the façade of the hotel is designed and specified to maintain a quiet and restful guest experience.
     Care has been taken to integrate this project within the city. For example, the modular façade design maximises off-site production and assembly, reducing the impact of construction noise and congestion to the community during installation. Atkins brought in specialist facade consultants, Inhabit, to help realise this design and delivery objective.
