HOK releases concept images of Moscow’s Mandarin Oriental luxury hotel 

In partnership with the luxury Mandarin Oriental Hotel chain, architect HOK is designing Russia’s most exclusive and luxurious hotel. Images unveiled for the first time today depict the five-star luxury development in the heart of Moscow.

The new 250-room ‘upside-down’ hotel summons customers to check-in at sky lobby level affording visitors incredible views over Red Square and the Kremlin. HOK’s new design combines the old and the new and is located on a compact, central site on Tverskaya Road - Moscow’s equivalent to London’s Oxford Street. The hotel is housed in a redeveloped historic building, originally constructed in the early 19th Century as a private manor house. The building will retain two of the historic facades along with listed rooms on the ground and first floors. The new nine level internal atrium features a contemporary approach on a Faberge Egg which rises from ground level and terminates as a specialty restaurant overlooking Red Square at level nine.

The Mandarin will incorporate 6,500 m2 of retail space dedicated to luxury brands with underground parking for 270 cars. The hotel will be home to two elegant ballrooms; a health spa and wellness centre; an indoor swimming pool; fitness centre and a variety of restaurants and bars.

Vance Thompson, HOK’s head of hospitality, says: “This project is a fantastic opportunity to work with a listed building in one of the world’s most prestigious retail addresses. This luxury brand offers HOK the opportunity to create a contemporary modern building with a multitude of uses. The success of the project is based upon affording all rooms a unique view, an unrivalled customer experience and creating synergy between the hotel facilities and luxury retail.”

Following completion of the concept design, HOK will shortly begin work on the project schematics and design and development stages. Construction is expected on site towards the end of 2009 and the hotel will be officially open to the public in 2011.
