A Peaceful Paradise in One of China’s Fastest-Growing Cities

Futian Shangri-La
Shenzhen, China

Chinese topography, artwork and storytelling shaped the design of Shangri-La’s flagship hotel, located in the central business district of one of China’s fastest-growing cities.  

The contemporary guestrooms feature patterned wall coverings and a two-poster bed with a Chinese silk-paneled headboard and silk canopy.

The fictional paradise of Shangri-La as well as the local landscape and culture served as dual inspirations for this elegant, sophisticated hotel. Its grand, sweeping lobby reflects the dramatic manmade rice terrace landscapes that appear across China’s countryside. Set on an undulating, tri-level terraced floor, the lobby’s rich Chinese carpets, marble floors, colonnades and magnificent crystal chandeliers exude the height of luxury.

A color palette of red and gold alludes to Chinese chinoiserie style, while furnishings are comfortable and contemporary.

Exquisite paneling with modern Chinese styling defines the doors to the chairman’s room. Inside, a grand ceiling height is maximized by Chinese-inspired chandeliers, while the carpet anchors the space in a contemporized version of a traditional Chinese pattern.
