Behind the portrait hangs a gigantic wall clock with the background visual of The Bund in Shanghai – a famous pedestrian boulevard and landmark that fits perfectly well to the theme of the mansion.

What sat in front of us is a soaring atrium with colorful lanterns and a water garden full of fish and greenery. At the end of the Lucky Fish Pond staged a small podium with Chinese day bed sitting on top of an eye-catching peony flower carpet, renowned for its sensual bloom and intoxicating fragrance complementing the dynamic yet zen ambiance that brings nature and whimsy indoors.
The Chinese wooden panel signage hanging above the entrance doors was supposed to signify the origin of your province and tell a story of your ancestral roots but when it fell to the hand of the design team, it was then turned into more meaningful phraseology that suits more for this boutique hotel’s perspective. Those wooden panels’ wording has been converted to Happiness, Good Luck, Prosperity, Wealth, Auspicious and Longevity.
Surreal and fun yet functional, the design has summed up the aesthetic, with gleeful vulgarity. The room door opens with a actual key, not magnetic key card and for the idea of coming home.
