Hospitality Design - May 2014 - (Page 170)

perspectives 5 questions for robert mckinley Principal, Robert McKinley Creative Services 1 How did you get involved in design, and what do you love about hospitality specifically? 2 What did you want to create with your newest projects, Sant Ambroeus SoHo [shown] and Bar Felice in New York? My aesthetic training began in the fashion world with Giorgio Armani where I learned about lighting, texture, proportion, and the concept of creating venues where one can escape for a moment and dream a bit. Hospitality goes back to the definition of the word-the relationship between guest and host. There is nothing more satisfying than people enjoying themselves in my home, in my company, or in a public space that I have created. I have always been attracted to Italian culture and the communal feel that so many trattorias convey in that country. The project challenge was to evolve the Sant Ambroeus brand and translate it to an environment like SoHo. We set out to create a chic and traditional vibe all while maintaining a vibrant and youthful appeal. I wanted to offer a taste of Europe that was not an exact replica of something out of Paris or Milan but was truly New York-meets-Europe. Bar Felice was a nod to the relationship that soccer has with Italian culture. Our task was to create a comfortable place that had a chic design sensibility but was also a great sports café. 3 4 5 What projects are you currently working on? I am currently working on a restaurant in New York's East Village called Tijuana Picnic, from the team behind Indochine and Acme, set to open this spring. In Miami, [we are creating] a hotel that is a bit less designed, that feels tropical, but is also a throwback to a mid-century sensibility. In Honolulu for the renovation and repositioning of the Hokele Suites, we have the same opportunity: to embrace traditional Hawaiian sensibilities but with a modern flair for a new hotel. What trends or influencers in fashion are you paying attention to? The interesting aspect of fashion right now really lies with designers who have a sense of luxury and are able to marry that with a sports-action vibe and street culture. What's your dream project? A private tropical island escape, consisting only of treehouse guest quarters, restaurants, and shops-all populating the jungle canopy. With waterslides down to the grounds below and perfect waves surrounding the island! http://www.roomthreesixty.com http://www.roomthreesixty.com
