The project marks the third milestone of Cheng’s Victoria Dockside development, a 10-year project that includes K11 Atelier, K11 Artus, Rosewood Hong Kong and K11 Musea, a retail destination that’s also slated to open this year.
Artus combines the word “Art” and the Latin term “Domus”, meaning “home.” The 287-residence K11 Artus in Hong Kong will redefine the luxury residence experience by providing Asia’s first hybrid “Artisanal Home” concept with comprehensive hotel services and an inspiring environment,
“This is an artisanal home and a new living standard built for those who prioritise bespoke design, a seamless online-offline experience as well as art and cultural experiences that bring together like-minded individuals,” said Cheng, who is also the executive vice-chairman and general manager of New World Development.
The project is a testament to collaborative design and cutting-edge craftsmanship. The development reflects the combined talents of Asia’s most celebrated designers and the world’s most respected international architectural firms. Kohn Pedersen Fox, the award-winning New York-based architectural studio, designed the building while Bangkok-based P Landscape (PLA) is responsible for the surrounding greenery and lush landscaping. Soaring over Victoria Dockside and taking full advantage of the exclusive location, three individually designed penthouses – by Hong Kong’s Joyce Wang, the UK’s Fiona Barratt and New York-based nemaworkshop – represent the ultimate in luxury lifestyle.
To meet a hassle-free lifestyle supported by technological innovation, the residents will be seamlessly connected through human-centred technology. In addition to the personalised hospitality and butler services, the property goes a step further with AMICI, an intuitive, digital concierge offering 24-hour assistance. Through AMICI, each resident has direct access to services at their fingertips, ensuring immediate responses to requests and providing useful advice.
