Restaurant Hakkasan Bodrum at the Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum hotel in Turkey is inspired by the views of the Aegean Sea dotted with the dramatic masts and billowing sails of Bodrum’s famous Gulets. These yachts are a staple of any Bodrum scene. The design by Campbell House subtly references materials and details that are characteristic of these vessels such as wood decking, rope-made features, and nautical fabrics.
A Calcutta marble welcome desk greets guests upon arrival at Hakkasan Bodrum. The desk is located in front of a feature branded Hakkasan wall that displays a large-scale Hakkasan logo. This unique design element also provides local context through the application of nautical materials such as rope and wood that are reminiscent of the famous Turkish Gulets.
Guests are then led onto the main deck of the restaurant platform. To the left is the central island bar that features backlit blue glass with a brass trim shaped into a signature Hakkasan pattern. Hanging above the bar is a series of Chinese-inspired contemporary pendants. These pendants are affixed to a wooden pergola overhead that fits in the marina-like timber decked platforms where the restaurant is laid out.
