dwp () has won the Hospitality Design Magazine Awards 2012 (Guest Room Category) for the interiors of Emporium Suites Penthouse. The awards ceremony will be held on in June 2012, at the Grand Hyatt, New York City.
Emporium Suites Penthouse is a 356sqm luxurious accommodation in Bangkok, Thailand, designed by world-class architecture and interior design firm dwp, which has won the ‘Guest room category’ Hospitality Design Award 2012. This achievement will be recognized in an awards ceremony to take place at the Grand Hyatt in New York, USA, in June 2012.
Inspiration for the design was derived from the metropolitan location of the building, surrounded by business districts, stylish shopping malls and hip urban spots, under the concept ‘Urban Unwind’. The objective was to create a luxurious, stylish, intelligent, urban-casual environment. Yet, site constraints prevented the demolition of any existing structures, so dwp sought to create moderate revisions, with significant impact. Working around the existing structure, walls, stone flooring, bathroom fixtures, dwp injected new elements to achieve a brand new look and enhance the higher level of luxury required.
Blending a new sophisticated colour scheme and finishes, with the existing ones was a major challenge. An elegant tailor-made circular lighting sculpture, of various sizes and heights, accentuates the 4-metre-high living and dining area ceiling, while a thoughtful selection of furniture and accessories achieved the desired balance. Etched patterns adorn grey tinted glass panelling, fitted to an existing stainless steel frame, providing a completely new feature to the space. The new look, enhancing the sophistication of the Emporium brand, meant the lease was fully booked out, even before construction had finished.
