Bannenberg & Rowell to design the interior of Heesen YN 15747, scheduled for delivery in Spring 2012

Heesen Yachts is proud to announce that Bannenberg & Rowell have been chosen to create a strikingly different style of interior decoration for the new yacht of Mr. and Mrs. Heesen, a 47-metre full-displacement, ocean going vessel. Mr. and Mrs. Heesen appointed Bannenberg & Rowell for the task because they particularly appreciate the richness and variety of materials typically used in this company’s interior designs, and the way that they are brought together to create an eclectic and pleasingly integrated atmosphere.

The design process started in the guest accommodation on the lower deck, with its guiding inspiration coming from diverse sources, including 20th Century industrial Dutch design, optical geometric studies, and shapes inspired by industrial components such as formers and frames. These elements will come together to create a dynamic interior concept that, at the same time, is comfortable, approachable and inviting.

The general arrangement of the yacht, by Omega Architects, has positioned the Owner’s suite on the upper deck in view of the fact that this area, more remote from the lower deck guest cabins, will offer the owners more privacy and calm during periods when their numerous grandchildren are on board. To the benefit of the younger members of the family, the forward area of the main deck that is usually dedicated to the master stateroom has been transformed into a media and games room.
