HOT AND COOL: THE MERCURY時尚熱點： The Mercury
Tin Hau adds a new urban-chic address to its rising profile with The Mercury. The Mercury服務式住宅酒店，為日漸冒起的天后增添新氣息。
Tucked just behind King's Road, on Mercury Street in Tin Hau, is the appropriately named The Mercury. A conventional tower at first glance, The Mercury will soon reveal itself as a chic serviced apartment with a New York warehouse inspiration; its understated grey façade is given a fresh life with the first of The Mercury's two wall murals by New Zealand artist Alana Tsui—an endlessly Instagrammable and profile raising pair of four-metre wings on the ground floor's exterior—that give the address the kind of personality which slots in effortlessly with Tin Hau's rising star. Opening November 1, The Mercury is nestled in one of Hong Kong's most robust but still under-the-radar neighbourhoods. Located just over five minutes from both Tin Hau and Fortress Hill MTR stations, at the heart of a comprehensive bus network, and come 2019 atop the Central-wan Chai Bypass (putting Central roughly five minutes away), Tin Hau is perfectly situated for urban living, for individuals and families alike. The Mercury sits steps from the emerging food hub on Electric Road; the low-key Tai Hang and its dining hot spots such as Tipsy, Second Draft, Elementary and BOND is a short walk away, plus a host of local
坐落於天后英皇道附近水星街的The Mercury，驟眼看來是一幢外型較傳統的大廈，然而內裡是紐約倉庫式風格的服務式住宅，兩道灰色外牆是新西蘭藝術家Alana Tsui所繪的壁畫，包括位於地面外牆四米寬的翅膀，現已成為不少人自拍的熱點，其風格與日漸冒起的天后不謀而合。
The Mercury由goodie Associates負責設計，酒店外牆獨特矚目，散發優雅時尚的風格。一樓服務台線條簡潔，經過一條長廊到達設計實用的公寓。酒店共有69間開放式一房公寓，面積由411至590平方呎，以北歐的設計美學為主，採用 柔和富現代感的色調，所有單位均配置Zone Demark、fest Amsterdam、house Doctor、三星、nespresso、德國寶、惠而浦、 Dyson 及 JBL的家具和家電用品，並有充裕的儲存空間。The Mercury還提供管家服務和商務設施、免費Wifi、健身中心、洗衣服務和24小時保安，增值服務包括餐飲、計程車和轎車預約、餐廳訂位和安排運送等服務。
The Mercury位於35樓的天台備有燒烤設施，令人有在家的感覺，而且可飽覽海港景致，是放鬆身心及招待賓客的好地方，牆上還有Tsui繪畫的另一幅壁畫，長14米的單色作品（配以局部色調），突顯The Mercury位於海傍的特色。天后愈來愈富時尚氣息，還洋溢著香港東西薈萃的特色。 Cantonese favourites are on its doorstep. Also, nearby are the shops, fresh markets and supermarkets needed for everyday living. Further afield but still within walking distance is the sprawling Victoria Park— with its tennis courts, football pitches, swimming pool and regular festivals—the retail, dining and offices of Causeway Bay, and cultural landmarks Lin Fan Temple, Tin Hau Temple and Fire Dragon Path.
Designed by Goodie Associates, The Mercury is welcoming with an elegant coolness that feels in step with the eyecatching exterior. The clean, minimalist first floor concierge desk gives way to timeless corridors before leading into efficiently designed apartments. The 69 open-plan, fully furnished one-bedroom flats feature a muted, contemporary colour palette with a delicately Scandinavian design aesthetic, ranging from 411 to 590 square feet. All flats are outfitted with Zone Denmark, Fest Amsterdam, House Doctor, Samsung, Nespresso, German Pool, Whirlpool, Dyson and JBL furnishings and appliances, and also boast ample storage. Among The Mercury's amenities are concierge and business services, complimentary Wifi, a fitness centre, laundry facilities and 24-hour security. Value-added services include inhouse catering, taxi and limousine booking, restaurant reservations and delivery arrangements, among others.
Nonetheless it is the fully equipped rooftop terrace with a barbecue pit that makes The Mercury a home. Complemented by 35thstorey harbour views, the terrace is an ideal spot for relaxing alone or entertaining guests, and it also features Tsui's second mural, a bespoke 14-metre monochrome (with a touch of colour) painting that reflects The Mercury's waterside location, Tin Hau's increasingly funky vibe, and of course Hong Kong's singular east-meets-west identity.
