As Hong Kong’s first warehouse-turned-hotel, Ovolo Southside is something one might expect to find more in New York's Meatpacking District than in Hong Kong’s Wong Chuk Hang. The hotel references the area’s industrial past in its design, façade, and the utilitarian look of its Lo Lounge. Graffiti and striking art installations spread throughout the hotel’s public spaces are by a mix of local and international artists, and make Ovolo a perfect springboard from which to explore this emerging cultural hub.
MADE BY ORIGINALS
Having started out in his family’s watch company after graduating from the University of Southern California, Girish Jhunjhnuwala boasts a wealth of experience in running a business. Since stepping into property development in 2001, Jhunjhnuwala has opened a number of hotels and serviced apartments on Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong’s West Kowloon area, and Australia, which resulted in him winning the DHL/SCMP Hong Kong Business Award of Owner-Operator in 2012. When he’s not working hard, he’s often found tending to his passion for yoga, wine, and golf.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Ovolo exudes an industrial vibe characterized by concrete façades, steel furniture, and heavy-duty fixtures. One of the hotel’s architectural highlights is its expansive terrace, which allows guests to fully appreciate the surrounding beauty, while the hotel’s interiors include graphic motifs by local artists, playful furnishings—such as the reception desk complete with machinery parts—and bursts of bright color.
