Live the art at Hong Kong Parkview, the luxury, art-centric serviced apartments, home to the city’s mostprolific private art collection. Guests can see, touch and live surrounded by local and international masterpieces including works bySalvador Dali and Picasso located across the property and within the private suites.

Spanning from the Archaic Bronze Age, to Dynastic Buddhistic scrolls and sculptures, to modern art, sculptures, portraits and ceramics, these pieces have become an iconic and integral part of Hong Kong Parkview’s identity. The diverse collection is on display for the pleasure of members and visitors alike and has been collected by over three generations of Hong Kong Parkview’s owning family.

“At Hong Kong Parkview, we pride ourselves on providing a full sensory experience for guests by creating an elaborate community of art, luxury and sophistication amid the tranquil and idyllic Tai Tam Nature Park. We recognize the scope and quality of our private art collection is a unique luxury in a residence, and we want to make sure it’s enjoyed,” says Olivia Au, Hong Kong Parkview General Manager.

Guests can book a tour of the gallery and grounds with the guidance of Curatorial Director, Franco Savatori. Within the gallery are two important chambers. The first is the Archaic Bronze Chamber, which houses bronzes in Pinyin Qīng Tòng Qì, which are some of the most significant pieces in ancient Chinese art. Many bronze artefacts from the Chinese Bronze Age are on display in this chamber, including ritual bronze pieces which were deposited as grave goods in tombs of royalty and nobility and were produced to use in ritual offerings of food and drink to ancestors and then buried with him so that they could continue to pay respect in the afterlife.

The second chamber houses preserved Buddhist artefacts, considered national treasures across the world and date back to when Buddhism was brought to China from India.

In amongst the chambers are varied pieces of over 600 artworks including statues, paintings, moulds, sketches, ceramics and calligraphy by renowned artists such as Ju Ming, Picasso and Zheng Lu, to name just a few.

In addition to the art pieces spanning the entirety of the communal areas around Hong Kong Parkview, all of Hong Kong Parkview’s 223 suites have also been meticulously styled to create a unique art-inspired living environment. Currently, Hong Kong Parkview is the only serviced apartment in the city that provides an art-focused series of suites in five different colourways and eight thematic floors. These include ‘Animal & Safari’, ‘Rock & Roll’, ‘Oriental’ and ‘New York 1920s’, all thoughtfully decorated to provide a fun, stylish and comfortable living space ideal for business travellers, locals looking for a luxury home away from home, expats moving to the city, and those seeking a family-oriented apartment.
