业主作为"峇峇娘惹"（马来半岛和印尼群岛的华人移民和土著居民的异族通婚后裔）的骄傲，是设计的第一印象。在项目Gahn酒店的设计过程中，通过与业主母亲的见面，我们收集到了她身穿花边上衣、蜡染纱裙、珠子拖鞋和精美的古董金饰的打扮，以及她的家常菜谱和她对家乡生活方式的回忆。业主母亲的祖先追溯到其祖父在锡矿开采的繁荣时期。锡矿热导致了独特的跨文化交流，从中国到马来半岛的移民路线、从欧洲的锡矿贸易航程导致了许多本地居民与中国矿工的通婚，因此形成了"峇峇娘惹"在Takua Pa社区的蓬勃发展。我们的设计意图是为业主提供在Takua Pa的"峇峇娘惹"的家庭生活方式的空间体验，在空间规划、材料选择、材料处理、家居用品和传统建筑细节上都有精心设计。
The pride in her status as ‘Baba-Nyonya’ 峇峇娘惹 (The descendants from the interethnic marriage of the Chinese settlers and native inhabitants of Malay Peninsula and Indonesian Archipelago) is an impression that we, Studio Locomotive, have collected from meeting with ‘Mother’ (the member of the project’s owner family) during the making of ‘Hotel Gahn’ through her dressing in a floral laced blouse, batik sarong, beaded slippers, and fine antique gold jewelry, her home-cooking recipe, and her reminiscences of the ways of living in her hometown. The mother’s ancestry traced to her grandfather during a prosperous time of tin mining. The tin rush had caused the unique transcultural hybridization through the migration route from China to Malay Peninsula, the tin trading voyage from Europe, and the intermarriage of Chinese miners which led to the burgeoning of the Baba-Nyonya community in Takua Pa. Our design intention is to offer guests the spatial experience of Takua Pa’s Baba-Nyonya family lifestyle suggesting in space programming, choices of materials, material treatments, household objects, and traditional construction details.
On arrival this five-story hotel is outstanding from the steel gateway, modified from the signature continuous shophouse verandah Ngo-Ka-Ki (五脚基), to preserve the privacy from road activities and the the extensive wood façade, covering pipelines running out of the building to optimize ceiling height, stained in opaque black from engine oil wood treatment.

The hotel reception, coffee bar, and restaurant share the common floor furnished with eclectic forms of Asian-inspired timber tables and seats decorated with batik cloth cushion covers. The central square table with several antique-styled stools and bench, similar to the multi-purpose tables used in the expanded Chinese family, offers a casual communal setting. Mother’s vintage collectibles displayed in lit-up full-height cabinets warmly narrates household stories. Tall cabinets along the restaurant walls exhibit traditional eatery and cooking equipment complementing gastronomic sensation escaping from the adjoining main kitchen. Ochre red and green color paints, noticeable on local architectural ornamental features, are applied on selected walls, pillar, and accented ceiling frames which are also the pipe and wire tracks in disguise.

The dog-legged hardwood staircase leading to guestroom floors demonstrates local undemanding details with the top of newel post cut in a hexagonal shape and simple rectangle bars for railing and balusters. ‘Fa Lai’, a unique type of window opening, is a pairing of wall gaps and a sliding batten panel considered as a part of the façade when closed.

Each guestroom features the use of traditional materials, local construction technicality, and daily household objects: terrazzo floor with brass strips, wooden wall with beading, vertical iron grille on closet door, bathroom door with wooden latch and doorknob, Chinese canopy bed, and hand-painted ceramic wash basin.
