Entry Description

Description - THE PRECINCT is a boutique hotel in the hip SOHO area in Central, Hong Kong right next to the old Central Police Station + Victoria Prison. The project is to refurnish an existing residential tower of the 1980s into a tasteful boutique hotel with a limited budget. Since the location of the project is right next to the old Central Police Station + Victoria Prison which is currently being refurbished into a heritage complex, the design was to take on a nostalgic colonial feel with elements picked up from the police station and the prison such as old keys, brick walls, steel lamps, checkered flooring, retro wood furniture, large-patterned wallpaper, etc. The building has been renamed THE PRECINCT in parallel with the new theme of the boutique hotel.
