Design[edit]

Novotel Citygate Hong-Kong - Main Entrance

The original interior design was started by Simon Jackson, who arranged guest rooms in a herringbone design. Later on, Hong Kong architect and designer, Steve Leung[2] completed the task. In addition, the restaurants and bar were designed by interior designer, Yasumichi Morita.[3] The Feng Shui elements located at garden and sun terrace were designed by landscape architect Sandy Duggie.

The number three represents “liveliness” in Feng Shui. The hotel entrance features three geometric beds of bamboo in low ground cover, and a still water pool. The revolving door contains 3 leaves and moves in a clockwise direction, which represents good luck in and bad luck out. The revolving door is 4.8m high and is the tallest revolving door in the world and has held the Guinness Record since 2006.[4]

Novotel Citygate Hong-Kong - Trans for Matter

At the poolside garden terrace, there is a white marble sculpture named ‘Trans for Matter’ by Italian sculptor Polo Bourieau. Water runs from the sculpture and through a narrow channel across the center of a spacious timber sundeck and down to a large granite waterfall.
