Hotel Icon in Hong Kong has a clean and contemporary design style, emphasizing an open-air feeling that marries high design with approachability. The metal-framed glass atrium of the three-story lobby, courtesy of design impresario Sir Terence Conran, gives the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel an airy atmosphere filled with natural light and easy visibility throughout, whether viewing the lobby from the glass walkways above or looking straight through the hotel to the buildings behind. The lush living garden by Patrick Blanc crawls three stories up the lobby, providing liveliness and whimsy to the sophisticated space, with overhead spotlights and movie studio-style spotlights positioned on the wooden steps to the Green lounge. Glass and smooth gray marble flooring set a calming backdrop for otherwise buzzy public areas, dotted with public artworks like the I Love HK paintings flanking the guest room corridor elevator banks or the digitized Chinese characters projected onto glass in the lobby. The 28th floor club lounge is more intimate and hushed, and includes reading material and accessories displayed on black wooden shelves, warm lighting, low wooden coffee tables and extensive windows to showcase the views of Victoria Harbour.
