About the Chairman’s and President’s Rooms, River Wing
The “19th century mansion” style is a “first” in concept for Shanghai. These two Victorian style rooms are an entity, both regal power venues for exclusive or high-powered meetings, elegant dinners and events, for captains of industry, top ranking officials and those who appreciate the finer things in life. Spanning a total area of over 630 square metres, the Chairman’s and President’s Rooms are ideal for upscale private and exclusive dining, entertainment and launches, or as an alternative to the usual locally catered events.
Located in a private distinct area on Level B1 of the River Wing, the Chairman’s and President’s Rooms are a departure from the traditional conference centre and meeting room, moving into a separate residential environment.
At a renovation cost of about US$2.5 million, these grand rooms enjoy an exclusive entrance via a private drive through from the car park for a high level of privacy. Entrance is also available via the River Wing lobby.
The Chairman’s Room, themed with royal blue carpeting, comprises a library, boardroom and dining hall spanning a total area of 232 square metres. The President’s Room, themed with royal red carpeting, comprises a living room, sitting room with a bar and billiard room spanning a total area of 230 square metres. The rooms share a 168-square-metre grand hallway and common foyer with a fireplace.
Both rooms are exclusively manned by a dedicated team of butlers and chefs providing personalised service within a noble private residence.
Designed by Wilson & Associates, the Chairman’s and President’s Rooms are immaculately designed for a comfortable, personal and residential outlook. The design, decor and ambience take on a classic Victorian characteristic, with modern technology infused into the environment, creating a symbiotic entity of subdued state-of-the-art technology co-existing seamlessly with regal grandeur.
The generous use of wood and luxurious marble combined with plush furnishings and fixtures enhance the feeling of exclusivity and class. Cleverly hidden technical equipment only become apparent when needed. Strategic lighting creates ambience and artificial daylight, while the overall decor is brightened with colour. Meeting tables, lecterns and podiums lend an impressive outlook, eliminating the feel of a traditional sterile meeting room setup.
