An Urban Oasis: New Design for the Novotel Century Hong Kong
Novotel Century Hong Kong’s new innovative lobby is both bright and spacious. Its neutral colour scheme offers a soothing space for guests and staff to interact. The presence of preserved moss on the green wall and natural lighting offers tranquility, while giving guests a glimpse of the exotic foliage surrounding the hotel.
The open floor concept of the lobby of the Novotel Century Hong Kong features modern furniture inspired by nature and makes use of stone, wood, moss and other natural materials. The result is an atmosphere of an urban oasis.
Virtual Concierge Technology at the Novotel Century Hong Kong
The large touch-screen features a groundbreaking virtual concierge which is set inside a decorative wall made of timber slats which bridges the gap between technology and human interaction. The new virtual concierge will assist guests with real-time flight details, weather, tourist hotspots and popular restaurants in Wan Chai, transportation options and hotel details.
Guests can interact with the virtual concierge, collecting details about the attractions near the Novotel Century Hong Kong.
Area for social interaction
The furniture in the hotel lobby was developed to connect people and encourage conversation. Visitors can sit at the long wooden bench in the middle of the lobby or recline on one of the cushions designed to mimic the appearance of boulders.
The black slate-like appearance of the reception desks adds to the natural theme, with independent stations designed so that hotel staff can serve the guests on a more personal level. The Novotel Century Hong Kong’s renovated lobby space actively encourages people to get together and talk by providing a fun environment in which to relax and socialize.
