The Bauhinia, Hong Kong’s regional flower, is used as the inspiration for the dramatic custom designed ceiling feature and the carpet design. Utilizing a color palette of white and gold, the design aims to break the conventional use of crystal chandeliers and marble by using fabric, computer cut metal plates and aluminum extruded panels and ivory colored resin panels to create a soft, sensuous space that reflects feminine elegance, which is echoed in the rippled and stepped ceiling, the flowing curtains and fluted columns and the flower clusters in the ceiling feature. The brand attribute of Generosity is expressed through the grandness of the space, the fully equipped AV and lighting systems, the interconnection between the pre-function space into the ballroom through 11 pairs of 2m x 3.4m large gold leaved doors with Philip Watts Design door pulls. Color changing LED light along the walls cast dramatic light beams onto the rippled walls. Equipped with 150 sqm of LED screen, this is the most unique and tech-savvy ballroom in Hong Kong.

Wrapping around the Ballroom is a horseshoe shaped pre-function area of 1,000 m². A reflective marble floor and reflective Barrisol ceiling adds to the verticality of the dramatic space. Custom designed ceiling feature lighting of glass and metal also turns into wall sconces and an art installation on the wall opposite the arrival lifts. A white and gold palette dominates the space while groups of pink and green B&B Italia furniture add generous lounge comfort for the guests. Sliding wall panels conceal a bar that can serve pre-function reception.

Nina Bridal Suite
This bridal suite is generous in space by occupying an area of 100 m² that becomes the dressing, make up and relaxation lounge for the bridal party, making it a unique wedding experience to compliment the large adjacent ballroom.

Generosity starts with the entry vestibule which features the Pearl Drop pendant lamp by Preciosa, and leads into the main lounge focusing on a long make-up counter for up to 6 people, complete with lighting adjustments for day time and evening make-up. The iconic serving trolley by Schoenbuch becomes a flexible workstation for the make-up artists. This space opens into a large dressing room behind large sliding glass panels, complete with a 3 way dressing mirror and custom designed wardrobe. A jewelry showcase and a full bathroom with twin shower adjoining the dressing room add pampering touches to this unique ensemble.

At the heart of the bridal suite is a seating lounge clad with Hermes fabrics, Armani wall coverings and equipped with a splendid mini bar. Two large illuminated panels simulating daylight and evening lighting, giving a sensation of sunlight to an otherwise internal space. The colored matte glass Preciosa chandelier adds a touch of playfulness and an instagram moment to this dramatic suite.
