– DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT –
BAR Studio designed a Rosewood in Phnom Penh in 2018.
Like the other Rosewood designed by BAR Studio, their design connects the local culture and modern luxury.Highly inspired by Cambodian local culture and history, the interior offers timeless but unique moment there. The design shows many contrasts – darkness & lightness, pop art & exotic art, modern shape & organic form, or colonial inspired furniture & contemporary lighting.
Although this is a first skyscraper in Cambodia, it is very interesting to have the hotel design inspired by the local culture, rather than having the international typical modern luxury hotel designs. This is appealing to anyone like business travelers, tourists, or local people to hang out for the special day
Please refer to the description by BAR Studio below. It explains a lot about the design elements of this project.
Cite from BAR Studio :
Occupying the top 14 floors of the iconic 39-storey Vattanac Capital Tower, the city’s first true skyscraper, the hotel is a serene haven with stunning city and river views. Rosewood Phnom Penh’s design connects Cambodia’s past and present, drawing together threads of history, nature and culture in a design at the nexus of international and local, contemporary and traditional. It’s an inspired vision of hospitality, welcoming leisure and business guests alike to a curated retreat that feels like a grand manor house despite being in the heart of the city.
Taking its cue from the country’s hot tropical climate, verdant foliage and colonial cultural heritage, the spaces of the hotel are shady and cooling, backdropped by dark timber, Travertine marble and neutral tones, interlaced with the glint of brass details, smoothness of leather and shimmer of mosaic tiles. Interiors build on this subtle framework, adding layers of bespoke furniture, fabrics, custom-designed light features, art and ornate curios. Decorative elements draw influences from Cambodian craft.
Like a well-travelled sophisticate, the hotel has a worldly personality, with its head in the air yet its feet firmly planted in this unique location. Inspiration is proudly local, embracing Phnom Penh’s traditional character, while acknowledging its outlook as a modern metropolis. Completed 2018
