Occupying a building dating back to the 1970s, Fleming is a boutique hotel opened in 2006. In 2015 it was redressed and rebranded by A Work of Substance which transformed the hotel into a modern reflection of Hong Kong’s culture design. Let´s take a look inside of the interior design of The Flaming Hotel.

The Work of Substance was inspired by the Star Ferry, an iconic element of Hong Kong’s cultural past and present on which it laid the foundations for the redesign. The carmine reds and bottle jars found in the hotel’s interior design are a tribute to the shades found on Hong Kong ferries, fishing boats, delivery trucks, and temples. A unique design approaching and joining an urban style with a more luxurious side.
Strolling around the Hotel, we find several elements and characteristics in its decoration and design that resemble a nautical environment, the interior of a ship. Creating a unique experience where a host gets the feeling that is on a ship rather than a hotel.
Although the corridors may be a bit dark, the rooms have large windows that favor natural lighting. The decoration is based on custom fittings with detailed brass elements as a souvenir and a landmark of Hong Kong’s industrial history.
The picture above is from the Osteria Marzia the restaurant present at the Hotel and belongs to the group Black Sheep Restaurant. It is located next to the hotel entrance and serves Italian cuisine with flavors ranging from different seaside towns.
The exterior of the hotel features custom nautical fittings that light the way like a tent on the dock.
