New York City-based artist DAVID WEEKS takes us in­side The Park Lane Hong Kong, where a splen­did har­bour view and the con­tem­po­rary decor sparked his creativ­ity

#Legend - - ROOM WITH A VIEW -

HONG KONG IS a city of breath­tak­ing views, ur­ban con­trasts, vivid colours and de­sign ex­cel­lence. Dur­ing my stay at Cause­way Bay’s The Park Lane Hong Kong, a Pull­man Ho­tel, I ex­pe­ri­enced all of these. My room’s view was one of the best in the city – and my vista from the rooftop dur­ing my daily break­fast was even more im­pres­sive.

As an artist, I take in­spi­ra­tion from ev­ery­thing that’s around me, es­pe­cially when I travel. I of­ten find my­self in ho­tel rooms around the world con­cep­tu­al­is­ing my next col­lec­tion or art piece, and the at­ten­tion to de­tail of room 1614 was in­spi­ra­tional from the be­gin­ning.

Stay­ing in a ho­tel that fea­tures out­stand­ing, chic decor and over­looks one of the most spec­tac­u­lar sky­lines in the world made my stay in the city most mem­o­rable. It felt like be­ing in an artsy oa­sis of peace and re­lax­ation in the midst of the bustling ur­ban vi­brancy of Cause­way Bay, which is the per­fect start­ing point to ex­plore Hong Kong.

The so­phis­ti­cated, edgy Skye bar and restau­rant on the 27th floor was also a high­light of my visit to the city for the ex­cit­ing Art Week. I would def­i­nitely come back to The Park Lane Hong Kong, where ev­ery­thing, from small ob­jects to the check-in counter, is a sym­bol of de­sign and creativ­ity.
