What does it take to turn an exquisite interior design project into reality? How to bring virtual excellence to life and make it accessible not only for visual perception, but for all the senses? Turning creative visions into spaces with physically tangible shapes and surfaces is what passionate craftsmen do, applying their experience and skills to realize the most daring design ideas, adding imagination and patience to bring out the best properties of each material. This is what the artisans at Crosstec Group Holdings Limiteddo and what brought them this year’s Luxury Lifestyle Awards in the category of Best Luxury Construction and Fit Out for ‘The Peninsula Boutique & Café’ in Hong Kong.
The story of Crosstec Group Holdings Limited began in 1999, when Mr. Sandi Lee founded his own company. His background included a Master of Arts in Design from Hong Kong Polytechnic University and a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design from the University of Manitoba. Mr. Lee had extensive experience as an architect-designer and interior designer when he founded the company. To date, he has over 25 years of experience in the interior design industry, leading positions with Crosstec Group Holdings Limited, and membership in various international professional interior design organizations. In addition to his professional activities, Mr. Lee is also active in education, sharing his knowledge and expertise with the next generation of interior designers as a guest lecturer and speaker at specialized institutions.
Today, Crosstec Group HoldingsLimited is a versatile provider of interior design solutions. The company’s clientele consists mainly of global brands of high fashion and luxury goods from all over the world. Clients of Crosstec Group Holdings Limited enjoy high-end interior design services such as:
millwork and furniture provision
facade development and fabrication
design and project consultancy.
The company’s clients can take advantage of any of these services individually or receive a comprehensive service depending on the specifics of the project or the client’s needs.
Work on each client’s project begins with a team of specialists getting acquainted with the interior design project in detail, interviewing the client, inspecting the site, and marking out the area. After reviewing suppliers’ proposals and agreeing them with the client, the team, if necessary, procures materials. Then comes the responsible stage of mechanical, electrical, construction and fit-out work, installation of millwork, and furniture. The project is handed over only after the joint inspection of the object.
Working on projects in Hong Kong, Crosstec Group Holdings Limited provides fit-out construction services as the main contractor. When working on projects in other Asian countries, the company engages its own contractors or local subcontractors and assigns its own foreman who inspects the quality of work and ensures that projects are implemented according to schedule.
‘The Peninsula Boutique & Café’, which has earned Crosstec Group Holdings Limited recognition at the Luxury Lifestyle Awards, is a new refined dining and lifestyle destination in Hong Kong, where sophisticated Asian tastes and experiences are presented in a luxurious setting with a stylish interior. One of the main materials used in the decoration of the cafe is dark emerald marble. A large part of the elements are made of brass; juniper green lacquer with flecks of millennial pink is also used. The Crosstec Group Holdings Limited team took part in comprehensive work on the project, from design development to final renovation. Thanks to the impeccable quality of construction and fit out work by the company’s professionals, ‘The Peninsula Boutique & Café’ opened on time and offered its visitors a luxurious lifestyle experience in every detail.
