Hotel & Conference center, Guangzhou
Located in the newly planned area development around the Guangzhou south railway station, the main goal is to design a distinctive building with a Cantonese character. The simple massing of a 60m. tower and plinth carrying the banquet hall offers space for 190 hotel rooms, a conference center, restaurant and parking garage. The continuous façade pattern with floor-to-ceiling windows relates to the traditional Guangzhou arcade architecture combined with privacy and view conditions from the interior of the rooms. The highest floors will offer panoramic views. To give the building cultural relevance and become a typical Guangzhou anchor for this new district, the banquet hall gets a perforated steel panel facade with a typical Cantonese image.
