The Putman, Hong Kong’s exclusive über-luxurious boutique hotel apartment was officially launched last night at a private party hosted by its designer, Madame Andrée Putman.
The Putman will provide executive accommodation for discerning long-stay business travellers who are looking for comfort, space and designer-style in Hong Kong’s Central district.
The boutique hotel apartment is entirely purpose-built to Madame Putman’s specifications as she oversaw site design, development, space-use, exterior elevation and interior decoration.
“I have tried to create a sentiment of opulent yet understated elegance,” comments the innovative French designer. “By creating a dialogue between the façade and the interior, the outside and the inside, I aimed to create an oasis of calm amid the bustle of Hong Kong. The Putman’s design represents a fresh and subtle energy driven by an ambitious desire for comfort.”
Each of the 1,300 square foot one-bedroom apartments will be full-floor suites with private dual-lift lobbies. Inside the apartments will be three distinctive living areas - all inter-connected by glass doors, open hallways, high ceilings and a chic neutral décor for versatile living.
Apartments will be fully fitted with state-of-the-art gadgets and furnishings including two Toshiba 42” HD LCD televisions, Siemens and Krups kitchen appliances and a stand alone Villeroy & Boch bathtub. On-site management will provide daily housekeeping services as well as full porter, maintenance and concierge services.
Other facilities in the block will include a café located on the ground floor, and a chic lobby area.
Prices for the one-bedroom suites will average HK$50,000 per month, with the top four floors boasting sensational sea views.
The development is a collaboration between world renowned designer Andrée Putman and Hong Kong’s leading luxury property developer National Properties Holdings Ltd. Citigroup Property Investors, the real estate investment management business of Citigroup, is the financial partner in this development.
“Our company wanted to extend our expertise in luxury developments to the boutique hotel/serviced apartment sector,” said Loewe Lee, Managing Director of National Properties. “We envisioned creating a stylish yet inviting space with all the comforts of home. Through Madame Putman’s inspirational and innovative designs, we will realise our first luxury hotel/serviced apartment project.”
