Fairmont Empress

The design of the restaurant and bar centers on the historic Empress Room’s heritage, the natural bounty of Vancouver Island, and the hotel’s setting on the sparkling Inner Harbor. Paying special attention to the Edwardian interior, the new design pairs legacy with modernity, as seen in the refurbished hardwood floors, quartzite central bar with sculptural lighting, and antique mirrored panels depicting a Pacific Northwest mountain range. In the tea room, the existing architecture is brightened by a color palette sourced from the original Empress china, a central bar for tea service during the day and champagne by night, and lush plant life referencing the “City of Gardens.” The concepts carry through to the brand identity, which features whimsical and eye-catching packaging for the tea offerings, a modernized color palette, and a memorable logo.
