As a sequel to Phelan Holdings’ success with Cape Royale with its French leanings, NH-Oscar Pearse bows to ‘Italianate’ urban aesthetics. The golden façade punctuated by tall, double paneled windows and balconettes sits atop a broad band of full-length doors and windows at street level. These invite you into a vast double volume lobby clad in white marble, where you would expect to hear the staccato of stilettos above the murmur of business dealings.

Generously proportioned public spaces include a restaurant and bar, meeting facilities, a panoramic, urban-styled rooftop pool deck and a spa as well as the sleek, green marble corridors which unfold over 15 floors into the intimacy of the living spaces.

The standard rooms are appointed with a contemporary 4-poster bed draped with the finest Egyptian cotton muslin, creating a screen of privacy at the centre of the space which enjoys the luxury of a bath niche, large closets, designer vanities, a TV and hi-fi system, a writing desk with exotic inlay (commissioned from India) as well as a living area in which outside guests can be received over drinks. The suites include an additional dressing table, a separate living room and a sleek kitchenette with all units equipped with the highest level of international IT connectivity.

All constellations of room sizes and suites resonate with simple elegance. A considered layout, clean lines that consistently guide the design of the custom-made furniture, richly contrasting textures and the sophisticated restraint of the tonal palette, create interiors that are both functional and timeless – a true design masterpiece that will exceed the highest international expectation.
