Award Entry

New hotels provide for a range of accomodation in Shanghai 

Langham Xintiandi and Andaz Shanghai are twin hotel towers in XinTianDi, Shanghai, providing 357 and 305 keys, respectively, together with more than 6 different stylistic F&B outlets, indoor pool and spa to the public. Being a shareholder of the master redevelopment plan of over 50 hectares of urban site, the funder of this project targeted to create a prominent landmark at the gateway from Middle HuaiHai Road CBD to XinTianDi.

Coherent to the successful revitalisation of ShiKuMeng heritage-architecture in XinTianDi on the opposite side of the street, the architecture transforms the traditional delicate window lattice screens into modern curtain wall. Curved twin towers and footbridge successfully celebrate the gateway and approaching, while low-rise pavilions and plaza dissolve the boundary between and connect the ambiences of XinTianDi and CBD. 

The owner highly values lifestyles, customer experiences and neighbourhood.  The project demonstrates the innovation of diversified customer experiences including creating semi-private check-in space, resort-like butler service, flexible extension of function facilities to bar terrace as well as a glazed floating wedding pavilion that connects with the banquet hall below. Respect and study of diversified lifestyles drove the team to complete over 10 room types in each hotel, including standard guestrooms with opened make-up alcove, executive suite with inspiring workspace and luxury suites with private garden and outdoor spaces.

We provided imaginative and innovative ideas for banquet hall and function halls that allow hotel owner and operators to market and package their new services and lifestyle experiences to corporations and individual patronage.  Fully-glazed atria and featured lounges, grand open staircases as well as glass elevators became the key to link up the podium levels, which provide different scale and function of spaces to optimise the opportunities for different events, functions and experiences.
