Bengkulu is the capital of Indonesia province of Bengkulu. The city is the second largest on the west coast of Sumatra Island after Padang. During the European colonialism era, Bengkulu becomes the commercial centre for the region, focusing on spice trade.
The initial concept of the public area in Mercure Bengkulu is the port itself, where the area is divided to few zones but still in accordance with one another. The idea is inspired from Port Malborough, build by the British during the colonialism era. It is considered a centre point of the city and was always busy with people.
With all of this combined, the result is a perfect balance of modern ethnicity interior design that still in-line with the identity of the brand itself.
