Winner: Lodging | Vietnam | BCI Asia Interior Design Awards 2019
Situated along the central coastline road of Quy Nhon, the Liberty Central Hotel combines refined local essence with a modern design language.
The diversity of the surrounding landscape—mountain, forest, rice fields, sea and island—is woven into the interior design to create a resort-like environment within a city hotel.
Most prominently is the large boat sculptures hanging from the lobby’s ceiling, a nod to Quy Nhon’s traditional fishing villages. The check-in counter looks over the seashore afar, while the reception void is filled with ample natural light, albeit in a controlled manner. Basalt stone, a popular local material, plays its part as a light-absorbing complement and contributes to a more relaxing and tranquil setting. A pond in the centre, inspired by the An Lao waterfall in Binh Dinh, becomes a traffic orientation point.
