Heroes of Guangzhou

It took some effort, but we did it: Vanke, one of the biggest developers in China gave us a nice architectural assignment. We were asked to think about a hotel with a conference center in Guangzhou, close to the station. 

We designed a hotel with varying sizes of window frames, related to the underlying program. The upper floors have wide windows with panoramic city views. The ‘banquet hall’ will be coated with perforated steel panels, in which you can recognize the faces of the heroes of Guangzhou, referring to the history of the city. 

The hotel has 190 rooms in 18,000 sqm and is 60 meters high. The construction will start in March.
