Design Practice Location:
The hotel has a total of 193 rooms, which feature two entirely different Art Déco-inspired designs. The Fashionable & Modern guestroom integrates Art Déco with the ‘East-meets-West’ feel of modern Shanghai architecture. Vivid flashes of colour break up and embellish the cool, grey tones that make up the main colour scheme. Using a variety of methods, Shanghai’s local culture and the distinct feel of its architecture have been seamlessly integrated into the design. Meanwhile, the design of the Nobility & Opulence guestroom is primarily inspired by the region’s traditional culture and landscapes. Warm grey tones are used as the main colour scheme. With its decorative wooden surfaces made of knotted mahogany and its bronze embellishments, this room’s overall style is more elaborate and intricate than the Fashionable & Modern guestroom.
