Hotel Icon combines teaching facilities with a full functioning commercial hotel 

This hotel is a 262 keys hotel in Hong Kong which combines teaching facilities with a full functioning commercial hotel. The project blends ecology, education, experimentation, art and design in an Asian setting, creating a successful business model operated with 30% trainees and 70% professionals.

As a training facility for the young generation, innovation becomes a key aspect for the project, which includes:  Function rooms that operates as school auditorium in the day time and a ballroom based on black-box theatre concept, creating a neutral space with a crystal ceiling that can change colour with LED lighting to suit different events and

The lobby uses Asia's largest interior green wall to absorb carbon and there is a pair of curved benches made of raw plywood with built in lighting as lobby seating to counter act the strong architectural form

There is a juice bar besides the gym and pool area, with a 30ft ceiling and clad in green mosaic tiles, which becomes a cocktail space that can cater to private pool side function. Plus, a curved shower in the guestroom takes a fresh look at guestroom planning.

The project also incorporates art installations and design by students and local based artists.
