Polished modernity and soft glamour marry beautifully in this exclusive Penthouse Suite, inspired by the iconic, nautical-inspired architecture of the Hotel and the vistas over Manila Bay. Sweeping lines and flowing forms expressed in both the interior architecture as well as the layout, gently guide the eye towards the expansive terrace and panoramic ocean views, ensuring continuity from the indoor spaces to the outdoor. Executed in glossy figured sycamore, lacquer and nickel combined with embossed leather and silk wall panels, the space provides the feeling of being aboard a sumptuous superyacht.

The project shows how success can be achieved by having a strong concept inspiration and a clear narrative. Michael Fiebrich Design’s initial concepts and design directions drove all aspects of the design from the nautical inspired architecture to the streamlined details, flowing layouts and the colour and material palette driven by the ocean vistas. The artwork collection was carefully commissioned by Filipino artists, including dramatic sculptures by Sam Penaso, to support the suite colour palette and bring a regional touch to the glamorous interior.

Truly bespoke interior architecture, detailing and material palette make this Suite one of the most unique and inspired spaces Michael Fiebrich Design have had the privilege of executing. The prismatic sunset views over Manila Bay provided the inspiration for the fabric and custom carpet palette, with a vibrant but sophisticated colour scheme of sunset golds, coppers and coral tones blended with soft sky blues and silvers, used to punctuate the shimmering, subtle tones of the architecture.
