Hotel design with fashionable elements and artistic displays from a variety of cultures
With a total design area of 56,000 square metres, the resort consists of seven connecting buildings placed in a picturesque order, housing 349 guest rooms and ensuites, each with a private balcony, overlooking a beautiful lake. The design areas include the hotel lobby/lobby bar, all day restaurant, Asian restaurant, Chinese restaurant, presidential suite, conference centre, banquet hall and foyer, fitness centre, recreation centre, swimming pool, and guest room areas.
The Hilton Hangzhou Qiandao Lake Resort is like a piece of elegant poetry, using water to conceive the design. The concept of water is implicitly embedded in the design, at times rippling, floating, and fluctuating, with tenderness and randomness.
Water and shades of gold, red, and brown highlight the hotels character and fashionable elements, thus arousing one's emotions to its extreme; artistic displays in New Chinese style, modern simple European style, and Southeast Asian intermingle, creating a rich, colourful rhythm, and crooning effect.
Materials consist of precious stoneware from South East Asia, natural wood, genuine leather, elegant velvet cloth, environmentally friendly latex paint, smooth solid glass, cut glass and crystal jade decorate time and space, bringing in a clash of multiple patterns which forms a unique style of its own, and no longer just appealing to a modern, or classic style, nor Art Deco, or a simple European style.
Such a varied style provides the hotel with multiple illusive types of scenery. The designers feel that when a guest walks through these scenes, the cultural heritage appears to float through space with a poetic sense of beauty; and strolling along this ‘Art corridor' provides guests with a dreamlike taste of the millions of images of the arts.
