Built within the natural vegetation of the wetlands surrounding the resort, the Hyatt Regency Chongming is a sanctuary of peace and serenity. Gaining inspiration from the lotus flower, the Wilson team created a clean and simple interior architectural design accentuated by thoughtful details. Materials and textures stand out, while fresh, vivid colors reflect spring and summer in the area. The minimalistic lobby allows the intricate ceiling and columns typical of traditional Chinese construction to play a prominent role in anchoring the entire space while emphasizing the structure’s generous heights. A central courtyard with a solitary bonsai tree sitting in a reflective water body further enhances the holistic approach.
