    • HKR : HOTELS & RESORTS Hotels & Resorts
    • HKR : HOTELS & RESORTS Mixed Use Hotels are special projects requiring a balance between the Offices Developer’s vision, the Operator’s brand and ultimately the Residential Guests’ expectations.

And, of course, it has to make financial sense.
    • HKR : HOTELS & RESORTS HKR : HOTELS & RESORTS How We Design Hotels & Resorts Why design should be unique The Guest Some hotels have become destinations in At HKR we don’t design places to suit their own right – they’re the icons of hotel everyone – places which are mass design and are one-off experiences. Once customisable can also be bland. We you’ve experienced it and ticked the box, interrogate the brief and work very hard you won’t necessarily return. at understanding the guest profile and the market. Then we work closely with the However, the vast majority of hotels rely on design and project teams and creatively repeat business. Today’s guest will choose tailor the design to deliver the right product a hotel almost entirely on the basis of the – one that is experience it offers and the way the hotel › innovative reflects the guest’s lifestyle. So it’s critical that your designers get it right. › experience driven › appropriate for its context But how do you define that experience? At HKR we believe, from a guest’s How do you know what your guest wants? perspective, these are areas where design can make a real difference. We all know the guest’s basic needs – comfort, reliability, good service. Most hotels should at least offer all that. But in an increasingly diversified marketplace driven by what we term ‘the experience economy’, people travel further and in search of more. Adventure, tranquillity, family-friendly places, business oriented environments, design-led or culturally responsive - guest profiles and demands vary dramatically. As designers, where do we start?
    • HKR : HOTELS & RESORTS HKR : HOTELS & RESORTS How We Work The journey is as important as the destination We tell stories with our designs. We design And there’s a story with the operators too hotels and resorts as if they were journeys - it’s called ‘efficiency, efficiency, efficiency’. and adventures and we work very hard to ensure that the story is a compelling one, We know our way around hotels and that choreographing it and filling the journey enables us to optimise spaces, smoothen with meaningful experiences. out service routes, plan our operations to occur as quickly and as discreetly as Where does the story begin?

Efficiency means better pool? And where does the story end? service for the guest. It also affects bottom line making savings in time and material for the operator; and of course, the owner gets a better performing hotel overall – it’s a win-win.
