This is the Concept Design phase of the project, design area of 34460.94 square meters including Lobby, Public Place, Publics Corridors, Lifts Corridors, Lobby Bar, Buffet, the design of Standard rooms, Business rooms, Deluxe suites and other chamber and the Office Executive floor.
The Concept Design is based on the famous Chinese Poet LIBAI and his poem about the waterfalls, this theme matching with the proximity of Dongping River and the architecture of the lobby with an impressive high ceiling of 16 meters.
We play with the theme of the verticality in the design that make the lobby impressive and using warm materials, like wood, stone color for the atmosphere.
It’s a first feeling through a waterfall but after the visual appears others strong meanings like releasing emotions & negative feelings, revitalization & renewal feelings.
We reinterpret the aspects of Tang Dynasty into a tall, powerful & light design and the waterfall theme into the design of the lobby reception inspired by water collision creating a strong and simple Chinese graphic on the floor pattern. A graphic that we have declined in several variants for different floors and functions of hotel spaces with which we play as wood or metal carving, carpet graphic and stone pattern.
In the middle of the empty lobby, for reasons related to Feng Shui, we reinterpret the idea of Chinese garden playing with the graphic on the floor by extruding these forms on different height to give them as different function, sitting, flower pot or single sculpture.
