Housed on the ground floor of the Substance-designed Fleming hotel in Hong Kong, the double-height Italian restaurant Osteria Mazia boasts expansive windows that look onto the street.
In the restaurant operated by Black Sheep, arcing floor lamps mirror fishing buoys, while teak floors recall boat decks.
Blue and white tiles surround the bar in Osteria Marzia, which neighbors the teak and brass-framed open kitchen.
The Fleming’s design, including in the lift lobby, is informed by the style of the Star Ferry with rounded corners that reflect its maritime inspiration.
Overlooking Osteria Marzia, a mezzanine on the second floor includes the lobby, custom wood-clad reception desk, and casual hangout spaces.
Along with navy blue and white striped cushions and rugs, teak deck chairs with back rests that flip from one side to another in the lobby are another nod to the Star Ferry.
Extra-high beds in guestrooms allow cots to be stored underneath, while rails surrounding the room are used to prop up artwork.
Fronted with rattan, custom modular units in guestrooms combine a desk or vanity table, wardrobe, minibar, shelves, and dresser drawers.
Green tile walls in guestroom bathrooms complement brass faucets, inspired by nautical hardware.
