The Macan Markar

interior design - 2016


Blending traditional heritage with contemporary sophistication, the Macan Makar building is a listed building, which has been sensitively renovated to create a luxury hotel with an ambiance of a modern contemporary interior. The hotel consist of a warmly lit reception and waiting area designed around a classical white baby grand piano, adjoining the coffee shop and high end designer stores. 

The rooms are spacious yet minimal overlooking central courtyards with exposed signature red H-irons which embraces the overall structure. The bar which is situated in the basement is given a mature feel with the use of back lit translucent patterned alabaster cladding and a suspended bar display. The key feature is the mirror pool that runs parallel to the overall glazed bar. The spa and sauna is situated adjoining the pool, tucked away from the buzz of the bar giving the space the serenity and tranquility it requires.
