The hotel building, which is in a trendy and creative neighborhood, distinguishes itself as a modern landmark with a hexagon-patterned facade that gives it a distinctive honeycombed texture. At night, the tower’s skin comes alive to create mesmerizing light shows.
In addition to the 305-key InterContinental Hotel, the property also includes 48 luxury apartments and a boutique shopping mall.
Challenged by a narrow site, HOK’s team designed a tapered silhouette at the two ends of the tower with a linear silhouette at the building’s core. This form creates a dramatic exterior that offers uninterrupted panoramic views for hotel guests.
Located within the tower’s linear massing, hotel guestrooms offer stunning vistas onto the Forbidden City and Beijing’s financial district to the west and a vibrant cultural district to the east. Suites on the north and south ends have a triangular floor arrangement that provides 270-degree views onto the city.
Separate entrances welcome residents, shoppers and hotel guests onto the property. One of Beijing’s largest revolving doors creates a grand entry into the hotel lobby, where a connected restaurant patio allows diners to experience the neighborhood’s hustle and bustle.
