Stylus Studio was tasked to reinvent HKJC's Sha Tin Club House 5F. Horse racing elements are sprinkled across the property beautifully between race and leisure days.
1980s’ racing legend River Verdon has brass coins hung on its Sha Tin stable. This nostalgic detail, with its meaning of luck and prosperity, captured the imagination of our designers and became the golden thread throughout the project. With a modernised twist, the motif has been transformed into lights, handles and even wall and floor patterns which connect all the dining and entertainment areas.
Either for pre-meal drinks or to enjoy live events with friends and family, Kat O Bar is the perfect choice in Sha Tin Clubhouse. Its ‘RED’ theme has been designed to capture the most passionate moment of the race; a crownlike ceiling feature mimics the racetrack and provides a sense of infinite anticipation and excitement.
As patrons pass through the Wine Corridor – a natural and stately transition is made to the Centurion’s noble dining areas. As the focus of discussion among members and their guests, the Wine Corridor also hosts monthly wine tasting events.
The Centurion represents the end of the race with victory in hand. High ceiling reversed “chandelier”(fibre optic lighting), retractable TVs, and the state of art ‘Lapis BLUE’ marble fireplace were used to present the idea of open space and elegance.
The fireplace also doubles as a window that connects to the Kat O Bar, a large perforation allows visitors to peer through the two venues.
Canter’s racing green colour palette exudes both tradition and modernity. Serving western cuisine with a family-friendly ambience, this Bistro is brought to life with a long custom-made dining ‘farm table’ and comfortable banquette seats.
The Harmonious Coexistence
Stylus Studio seeks to find inspiration such as bronze coins and racing spirit in the process while balancing aesthetics with practicality, this spatial journey not only showcase a modern design, but also to story tell its rich history and the spirit of horse racing.
