What’s the most exciting project Andre Fu has worked on?
It’s probably The Upper House in Hong Kong, largely because it’s the first hotel that I’m involved in on many different levels. It’s probably the most holistic hotel experience that I’ve created. But going forward, we’re creating resorts and new hotels around Asia. My career has brought a lot of new challenges over the journey of 10 years.
Currently, we’re working on a very unique ultra suite [the Opus] for [Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star] The Berkeley in London. The suite is converted from five original rooms and a small suite. I intend to translate The Berkeley’s philosophy of “exquisite innovation” with the interpretation of a meticulously curated suite that encapsulates the all-encompassing residential comfort, a vision catered to the next generation of contemporary travelers. The suite is distinctively architectural and embellished with intricate and thoughtful details, yet the overall effect evokes sensuality and intimacy.
