design proposal in collaboration with Woods Bagot

A serviced apartment and foyer interior fitout design proposal for a newly built landmark building in Beijing. Externally the building takes on the motif of a 'lantern', designed by American architect John Portman.

Our design for the interior tries to work with the lantern theme yet take on more in depth understanding and translation of Chinese spatiality and planning into a contemporary Beijing context. Material choices are based on the Chinese alchemy of 'five elements'.
