Behind the scenes: Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam
30th April 2021 | Behind the scenes
G.A have been working on a new boutique hotel in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Seamlessly blending biophilic connection to nature with vibrant city culture, creating a harmonious hotel experience.
Currently scheduled to open in 2023, the 180-room hotel sits at the base of the only remaining rainforest in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Bukit Nanas.
The Hotel Indigo brand prioritises locality, and their brief to G.A was to ensure the latest addition to their collection had an authentic ‘neighbourhood’ feel. Guests should feel immersed in the culture of their chosen destination, with no two Hotel Indigo properties presenting the same narrative, as they are always a reflection of different lifestyles, stories and people….perfect for G.A’s bespoke Resonance design process, in other words!
G.A’s Kuala Lumpur office were able to tap into the many multicultural influences of Malaysia to develop design narratives for the different spaces within this project. Resulting in design that captures both the historical charm of local heritage buildings, and the awe-inspiring scale of nearby modern architecture.
The visuals below offer a sneak peek of what is to come. Bedrooms, public areas and F&B outlets all capture the spirit of Kuala Lumpur in a fresh and exciting, new way. G.A Brand Design have worked alongside G.A Design on the Graphics, Signage and Wayfinding for this project. We look forward to sharing more images, brand design work and interior design narrative details with you as this project develops.
