SY Design, an internationally recognised hotel architecture and interior design firm, has been hired to design Ambassador Heights, the new luxury residential development at the Moevenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra, the Ghanaian capital city. The firm was responsible for the creation of the coveted suites and Presidential Suite at the Ambassador Hotel in addition to recent work on impressive projects including the Four Seasons London, Four Seasons Beirut, and Moevenpick Beirut.
SY’s vision for Ambassador Heights, “is to create a secure sense of place that allows each homeowner to feel as though they are on vacation while in the heart of the city,” discloses founding principal, Simon Yammine.
“We have paid particular attention to allowing nature and the outer green spaces and surrounding gardens to compliment the interior of the homes. Blending outside within through the use of beautiful glass features throughout the residence,” he adds
The exterior and interior of the homes will be an extension of the five-star luxury reflected within the surrounding hotel, he points out, adding that timeless elegance and sophistication will be felt across all elements of the residences from the fixtures, to the fittings, to the appliances. In addition, custom designed furniture packages are currently being produced by SY Design for the owners of Ambassador Heights.
Yammine adds, “The Ambassador Heights Furniture Package will further upgrade the luxury of the residence and will include the furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E) and operating, supplies, and equipment (OS&E). This will encompass everything from stylish yet comfortable living areas, to beautiful chandeliers, to fine cutlery, to high-end branded technology, to one of a kind artwork. Subtle African touches will be seen throughout paying tribute to local customs and culture.
“The furniture package will complete a move in ready residence and will allow homeowners to include their property in a short term rental management programme, which will be operated by the hotel giving homeowners the best of luxury and investment flexibility.”
Ambassador Heights is on schedule for completion in the fourth quarter of 2015.
