The Hari Hotel

After nearly six decades acquiring and managing hotels, the Harilela Group has finally created its own hotel brand and opened the first hotel in London’s Belgravia posh neighbourhood. We were commissioned to create this new brand from scratch.

 

Zhongwei Hotels in China

Zhongwei Hotels turned to the expertise and experience of Marc & Chantal to rethink and redesign their brand when they wanted to maximise and elevate the value of their existing and new hotels. The project was comprised of a full range of branding services such as positioning, brand architecture, brand DNA, naming and brand identity. We rebranded the group itself and created new categories of hotels in order to capture emerging opportunities in the fast-moving hospitality market.

Retail Showsuite at Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre

To create an immersive showsuite for a crown jewel development in Guangzhou, at the base of the Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre, we emphasised the playful and innovative character of K11 Concepts with a holistic environment that included custom fragrances and a surreal design to transport visitors to the wonders of childhood, such as the treehouse of their dreams. Never forgetting the goal of the showsuite, each element combined to create a compelling experience of K11′s unique retail vision.

Office Showsuite at Guangzhou CTF Finance Centre

Selling premium office units in a hyper-competitive market in one of the fastest growing cities in China is a challenging task under any circumstances. When that office space is in the tallest tower in the city, the showsuite design and content needs to match those high standards with a creative approach. The offices are leased by K11, known for their innovative views on work environments, so we took the challenge and created an unexpected, yet cohesive look at presenting real estate information to prospective tenants.

Chengdu Sino Ocean Taikoo Li

In the competitive real estate market within China, the ability to immerse potential tenants in the details and lifestyle of a development apart is key to communicate the concepts behind it. We were asked to develop the showsuite content and design for the retail development of Sino Ocean Taikoo Li, in the rapidly growing city of Chengdu, with an eye to delivering a message about the quality of life and enjoyment that could be found there.

Anecdotes from the Peak

To create a public exhibition about the Peak, Marc & Chantal led research into Hong Kong’s unique heritage and natural wonders. Conceptualised, curated and designed as a museum-grade display, the exhibition was part of a broader brand and communication exercise developed by Marc & Chantal for a residential project by Wheelock Properties on the Peak.

Light Drawing Installation

To celebrate our 20th anniversary, Marc & Chantal created an interactive art installation at the 2013 Clockenflap Music and Arts Festival. As the Creative Partner of the festival, we designed a light drawing photo studio inside of a cluster of inflatable clouds at Victoria Harbour for concert goers to explore. The festival attracted more than 30,000 attendees and the cloud installation quickly became a landmark, with a queue of participants waiting to take their photo for the entire time of operation.

Civic Education Resource Centre

On a mission to appeal to the instant-gratification-seeking youth of today, we created a multi-dimensional and layered experience giving the opportunity to teenagers across Hong Kong to step into a die-cut world, teeming with lessons on how to become the best citizen one can be.

Shopin

Shopin is a highly successful discount retail chain in Beijing with an e-commerce, plus bricks and mortar, business model. With a fast-growing business, the management realised that the foundation of their brand needed to be realigned to support the opportunities of expansion ahead of them. We helped build a solid base for the future growth of the brand.

Indigo

Creating a showsuite is an exercise in the art of illusion, imagination and persuasion. For their second project in Beijing, Swire Properties asked us to bring that kind of magic to the design of a unique sales experience. Indigo is a mixed-use development, with retail, commercial and hotel components, located in the up and coming Jiangtai district in Beijing.

China Mobile

China Mobile is the juggernaut of mobile communication on the mainland and its brand is ubiquitous in the Chinese landscape. However, with rapid changes in technology, it was critical to go beyond brand power and create an immersive experience to educate and retain the attention of customers. We were given a 10,000 sq ft space to create a journey into the wonders of wireless technology.

 

Krug Room

We were asked to conceptualize the experience for a very exclusive private dinning room for Krug, one of the most revered Champagne brands. The Krug Room itself is hidden within the kitchen of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hong Kong and gives diners a chance to interact with the chefs and sommeliers in a very personal manner.
