The new Hilton Da Nang Hotel, designed by Noor, opened in April, becoming the first five-star hotel in Da Nang, the third largest city in Vietnam.
The Hilton Da Nang is set on the main thoroughfare of Bach Dang Street, which runs along the Han River with commanding views across the city, towards the hills of the Son Tra peninsular and the beaches between Da Nang and Hoi An. Da Nang is a fast developing and energetic city with two sides, from the long-beaches reaching down the coast to the heritage town of Hoi An.
Noor, which has studios in Vietnam and Athens, delivered a comprehensive brief to design the interiors of the hotel’s 211 rooms, lobby, café, brasserie and rooftop dining bar, ballroom, pool and gym area, meeting rooms and the executive lounge of the hotel.
The design was inspired by local culture with strong architectural references to nearby Hoi An. Noor wanted to connect the history and culture of the location to the hotel, working with the natural colour palette found throughout the region and sourcing materials including local sandstone, ceramic wall tiles, marble, walnut wood and bronze.
For this new hotel project, Noor has incorporated bespoke furniture and lighting into the hotel’s design scheme interspersed with pieces from leading international brands Stellar Works, Wendelbo, Manutti, Sonite and Kettal.
The design studio is currently working on new projects for The House Hotel, Jeddah, Nusr-Et Steak House, Doha, Novikov Restaurants at Cervo Hotel and Cala di Volpe.
