Golden Eagle G Hotel Nanjing is located at the top of the city’s new landmark, which is the world’s highest three-tower building and Asia’s largest commercial complex. The client expected a top-class stylish luxury hotel in line with the design level of the landmark to demonstrate the fashion and vitality of modern Nanjing.
Based on the customer requirement, YANG, the hotel designer, defines “trend” as the establishment of common cultural cognition beyond sensory stimulation. With this design philosophy, a hotel that surprises the world while showcasing Nanjing is created.
From the profound history of Nanjing, the designer extracts the Qinhuai Culture as the design theme, which corresponds to the hotel’s fashion and vitality. Modern design approaches applied in the space allow elements from both the past and present to echo, mix yet collide and challenge with each other, creating a brand-new experience of stylish life.
What is the most creative is the secondary utilization of space. The sky loggia connecting the three towers is transformed from a public corridor into a display atrium plus lobby lounge, which effectively uses the space and enriches hotel functions.
The five-storey-high display atrium is also a lift hall. The back of the lift shaft, directly reaching the sky lounge at the 55th floor, is equipped with a 13-meter LED screen to make the hall a pre-function area for the multi-media center, enabling guests to experience open-style exhibitions or launch events.
In the lobby lounge, guests enjoy sufficient circulation because of the half-open walls along the corridor, which are designed to cater to their desire for novelty. The huge ripple-patterned metal plates covering the ceiling and columns and the wall texture echoing ancient city-wall bricks remind people of the alluring scenery on the Qinhuai River.
