design et al are delighted to announce that Gina Brennan have been shortlisted for the Interior Design – Concept Yacht Award in The International Yacht & Aviation Awards 2019.
A new superyacht concept commissioned by Oceanco, with an exterior designed by Timur Bozca Design and an Interior by Gina Brennan, for showcase at the Dubai Yacht Show 2019. The Esquel superyacht is a one of a kind project with a bold ambition to reinvent perceptions of what beauty and comfort is possible aboard a superyacht.
The brief was to create a unique look and feel geared towards the eclectic life, influences and home of a young explorer, split across 4 key areas; The Salon, Dining Room, Master Bedroom & Pool area. The opportunity to challenge the status quo of conventional super yacht design and the freedom and scope to re-think modern day luxury on board a boat
It was important for Gina Brennan to design Esquel with a true purpose and personality. The entire aesthetic is focused on a clear profile – bringing to life the dreams, travels and pleasures of a modern adventurer. Showcasing an eclectic mix of antiques and artefacts collected on his/her travels that help tell a story of travel and adventure as well as bringing a certain charm to the space.
This super yacht is about adventure, the interiors need to be cool and sturdy, but with chic elements to give it a warm atmosphere it still feels like being on board a luxury super yacht.Creating areas where you can entertain friends and socialise, but also little nooks where you can read and research. Comfort, enjoyment and social pleasure is at its core.
