Mango Tree Elements, which is located in the fashionable Elements mall in Tsim Sha Tsui, overlooking Victoria Harbour, has undergone an impressive makeover that draws its inspiration from the ancient city of Ayutthaya - the enchanting former capital of the Siamese Kingdom.
The project was overseen by Mai Chongchaiyo, director of design, Steve Leung Hospitality, the award-winning company that has worked on numerous high-end hospitality, retail and residential projects all across Asia.
The interiors blend contemporary and classical elements, including extensive use of bare timber, exposed brick walls and other traditional materials, set against a backdrop of monochrome images depicting the exquisite temples of Ayutthaya, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Flowing through the design is the symbol of the mango, including playful silhouettes of mango flowers, leaves and fruits on the walls and woven into the Thai silk furnishings. Combined with the wooden beams and pillars, this evokes a feeling of dining under a canopy of mango trees amid an ancient landscape.
