This week’s TOPHOTELDESIGN focus looks at China’s Cordis Hangzhou Sci-Tech City, which completed construction in 2020.
Hong Kong’s HBA designed the hotel’s interiors with the business and leisure traveller in mind.
High tech meets luxury
Located in the heart of the high technological and integrated complex, Hangzhou Future Sci -Tech City, Cordis Hangzhou is a contemporary, approachable luxury hotel.
The site features 186 rooms and suites ranging from 36 to 190 sqm in size, three restaurants and bar, a 24 hour well-equipped gym and a diverse range of flexible meeting and event spaces suitable for all events.
The hotel’s design, developed by architect PH Alpha Design – Shenzen, is inspired by the nearby West Lake natural landscape, and complemented by elegant, contemporary interiors.
Artworks are also prominently showcased at the hotel. Guests are welcomed by ‘Hangzhou Dream’ artwork in the lobby, depicting a fan opened by a scholar who sings lyrically and recites poetry, praising the scenery of Hangzhou’s 10 scenic spots. Other featured artworks include Chinese ink painting, blue and white porcelain or works reflecting boating on West Lake and other elements in Hangzhou.
