Hilton Jinan South Hotel & Residences

Jinan, China

 

Influenced by the springs of Jinan, the interior design delivers a stylish representation of fluidity and linear tactility of the water form.

Traditional elements of unique local architecture and culture are broken down and re-constructed into a holistic and urban space. Modern bespoke furniture, signature artwork selections and tactile layering of details and finishes refine the hotel’s design.

The Common Spaces

The hotel interior has a spatial advantage of vast, unobstructed double volumes in open areas such as lobbies and the all-day dining restaurant. On multiple levels, the volume of space is constantly mimicked with canopies of intrigue and metal screens to accentuate an effortless spatial transition between rooms.
