There’s something about awards juries that fascinate me. Every year as our judges
for the HD Awards convene, I watch with enormous interest as the group of five JONATHAN MARSLAND Creative Director
become one. Most of them don’t know each other, and if they do it’s most often 646.654.4472 jmarsland@hospitalitydesign.com
casually. Over the day, however, a kinship develops, born from the intensity of
the task at hand. Each group takes the assignment incredibly seriously and if the STACY SHOEMAKER RAUEN Senior Managing Editor
consensus they achieve isn’t to each member’s satisfaction, they have developed a 646.654.4411 sshoemaker@hospitalitydesign.com
respect for one other that overcomes whatever dismay they might have over the
TARA MASTRELLI Managing Editor
final decision. (I’m also intrigued that many times projects that have been lavishly

with our judges, while others ignored

rise. “Yachting is exclusive in a way which even the best
hotels and villas can’t match—tailor made holidays with
a dedicated crew available 24 hours a day and a world of
destinations, many of which can be enjoyed only from a

yacht,” explains Charlie Birkett, co-founder and CEO of YCO, which specializes in such
vacations. “It sounds surprisingly simple, but time is a precious commodity and our
clients recognize the value in anything which improves the quality of that time.”
The most sought-after boats: sailing yachts. Take Elena, restored to look like the
original boat of the same name, one of the best performing racing yachts in the early
1900s. And Birkett says they’ve seen an increased interest in destinations that are off
the beaten track. “New luxury is about exclusivity, but also about being unique and
smart,” he says.

chicago classic
Famed Chicago architect Louis Sullivan surely would be
proud that the last significant building he designed before his
death in 1914 has become the first luxury hotel in the city’s
Loop since the Palmer House was constructed in 1873. JW
Marriott Chicago opened its doors in November in Sullivan’s
historic Continental & Commercial National Bank Building.
The $396 million redevelopment overhauled the building’s
first 12 floors and added 610 guestrooms, a restaurant, spa,
and pool, while retaining and restoring the building’s classical
marble, ballrooms, and original domed ceiling. DiLeonardo
International was hired to design the interior, updating it yet
maintaining Sullivan’s architectural
motifs; the landmark has been listed
on the National Register of Historic
Places since 2007. “It was refreshing

To revamp its Monaco brand across its Chicago,
Denver, and Salt Lake City properties, Kimpton
brought in Intra-Spec. “We wanted to incorporate
the local allure of the city into the design,” says
Susan Caruso, president of the Marina Del Rey,
California-based design firm. “For Salt Lake City
we feature modernized classic patterns and a
boudoir pillow with a salt shaker sprinkling snow
on a mountain range for a bit of fun. For Denver,
big bronco cowboy country, we have a bronco on
the boudoir pillow and a pony throw on the bed,
as well as horse-themed modern artwork, and
lots of bold, adventurous color. Chicago is more
architecturally inspired, with a white faux leather

chaise and an intricate headboard that envelops an


oval mirror. The window seats are a great addition;
you can actually lounge in the window seat and
enjoy the amazing city views.”
Throughout the properties, rich mahogany
and silverleaf-accented casegoods with black
glass tops feature surprising pops of color inside;
chic accent wallcoverings set off each of the three
custom headboards; and Caruso used lots of sexy
cut velvets, damasks, and geometric detailing.

For Mamoz, a new 5,000-square-foot bar spanning the top two
floors of the Cubus building in Hong Kong, design firm Gettys was
inspired by one of Italy’s greatest wines: Barolo. “That lush, velvety
sensation that you get when you take your first sip of wine; we
wanted to translate that taste sensation into the interiors,” says
Ariane Steinbeck, managing director of the Gettys Hong Kong
office. “And hopefully project the feeling that one glass may not be
enough.”

One of the highlights is the 26-foot-long handcrafted bar made


from Indonesian timber. “The uneven but smooth edge recalls the
texture of the vine itself, and its length, the long rows of vines in
the vineyards,” says Steinbeck.
With a mix of textures and materials, including bronze and
leather furnishings with soft upholstery and walls swathed in
damask-patterned leather, a double-height decorative screen
uniting the two floors, floor-to-ceiling windows boasting views
toward the city and Victoria Harbour, and self-proclaimed naughty
unisex bathrooms, Gettys created a space that Steinbeck describes
as more Catherine Deneuve than Lindsey Lohan. “We wanted
the environs to be sophisticated and timeless—not desperately
screaming for attention as so many bars do.”

5 questions for…
Cheryl Rowley
After 25 years with your firm, and 38 years in the business,
you are retiring, or as you say, reinventing yourself. Why now?
I went from being a senior designer at James Northcutt, to starting my firm in the
basement of my house with one employee, to a staff of 40. It’s hard not to get
big when opportunities present themselves and there’s exciting, global work. I
found myself, even though I was designing all the way to the end, getting further
away from that, from where I started, which was a boutique company with small
projects. The recession was an opportunity to look at my business and personal
life. My family has been up in British Columbia—my husband for five years,
daughter for two years. That was really the impetus. Should I continue to ride this
out and build the business again or does that make any sense?

So what’s next for you?


Even though I am closing my LA office, I am still a designer, and always will be
a designer; it’s part of who I am as a human being. I am keeping the business
name, and expect I will be doing design up in Canada. First I want to take a break
and regroup. There are some things I need to do personally—I own a home up in
Canada, and I want to get outside and work in my garden.

What design opportunities would pique your interest?


Maybe I will take on projects in keeping with what I used to do: more local,
smaller, intimate. I am a child of the ’60s and ’70s and really a hippie at heart. I
want to get back to doing things with my hands.

What are some of the milestone projects of your career?


Personally, a huge project for me was the Hotel Hana-Maui. I started it with
Northcutt and it was where I learned my chops in construction management and
the essence of what good hotel design is all about. We had a fabulous client in
Rosewood, particularly Bob Zimmer. That gave me the opportunity to start my
own business—my first projects were capital improvements for Rosewood. After
that was my early work for Kimpton, the Beverly Prescott in Los Angeles. That
was the break out project for me—at the time everything was beige, and we put
coral and ivory striped wallcovering in the guestroom, the first time that had ever
been done. And the last big project I worked on is still in construction: the Four
Seasons in St Petersburg, Russia. It is a highlight of my career.

What are your greatest lessons learned?


I think listening, being a really good listener. Trying to understand not only the
client and where they are coming from, but also the intrinsic nature of a project.
Equally important, you cannot underestimate the amount of detail you have
to pay attention to. Lastly, be out there in the world and take it in. Travel and
open yourself up to different cultures, smells and tastes, experiences. And be
appreciative of people. The hardest thing is saying goodbye to all the amazing
talent I have had the opportunity to work with. I can’t say thank you enough.

work isn’t enough anymore. TOTO bath fixtures save money and water with every use
without sacrificing an ounce of performance. And they’re designed to do it flawlessly.

Singapore wasn’t always a center for arts and culture. Thanks to a mid-’90s push by the government to raise
its design caliber, and the resulting opening of the Esplanade performing arts center, several high-end hotel
and resort projects, world renowned chef-driven restaurants, and the annual Singapore Arts Festival, the
Southeast Asian country is now home to many product and fashion designers, as well as landscape, interior
design, architecture, and branding firms. At the same time, many Singaporean designers and companies are
gaining recognition in some of the industry’s largest tradeshows like the iSaloni in Milan, representing one of
the few Asian markets at the show. Local manufacturers are also teaming up with designers (take Singapore
designer Cilicon Faytory collaborating with Eurosa for example) to launch new hospitality collections.
Here, we look at five of Singapore’s most sought-after manufacturers, whose in-house design teams are
producing goods for hospitality projects around the world.
