His productions can be found throughout South East Asia, Australia, Japan and the United States. Kerry Hill is especially gifted in architectural design of holiday resorts, such as Amannusa in Bali, The Datai in Langkawi, Aman Resort in Hawaii and The Darwin Centre in Australia. Kerry Hill named the architectural design for The Lalu “Ongoing Style” – a unique style of moving forward. Ageless, ongoing style will remain fresh even after 10 years, 20 years or longer. In Mr Hill's view, whether one looks at architectural design or management approach, hotels in Taiwan have plenty of room for improvement.
A fine hotel must consider people, architecture, landscaping and a broad variety of environmental and climatic factors. Blending harmoniously into the local environment is the ultimate attainment in hotel design. Building materials should as much as possible be obtained locally, not purchased from far away places, not only for synthesis with the environmental setting, but also for maintenance of the hotel in the years after construction.......more
