A muted palette separates Barrie Ho's The Mercer hotel in Hong Kong 


On a site area of 2,400 sq ft, Barrie Ho Architecture’s new hotel project - The Mercer - was completed in December 2010. The entire volume is a 25 storey tower on a podium at a corner site between Mercer Street and Jervois Street.

The Mercer tower is now visible on the skyline of the Hong Kong Island, facing the Victoria Harbour. It is also the recent style of Barrie Ho Architecture Interiors Ltd to reintroduce and reinterpret fundamental architectural elements with the coordination of the most basic of colours - black, white and grey.

The Ground Floor accommodates Lobby Entrance purposely openable to the conjunction café lounge. Amenities are situated across 4 levels of the podium, accommodating restaurants, a gymnasium and business centres. More interestingly, hip and boutique swimming pool is introduced creating a buzzing oasis within a tight site.

The 25 storeys are subdivided into 5 zones, with the lowest 4 floors designed for guest rooms, the upper 4 housing two executive guest rooms woven into black and white coordination. The interior has also been completed in a simple but powerful black and white and grey colour palette.
