Project Title:

Mandarin Oriental Wangfujing

Project Location:

Beijing Shi, China

Design Practice Location:

With striking views of the Forbidden City just steps away, the Beijing Wangfujing Mandarin Oriental is a modern-day luxury hotel. It was conceptualised as a series of courtyard rooms: zen café basking in the rising morning glow; alchemist bar hidden behind a Chinese screen; guest rooms with private gardens and sweeping views – each space reveals a rich ambience infused with colour and texture. Archetypical furniture, detailed embroidery, and sophisticated woodwork add exceptional physical and historical context. This is a collection of beautiful curiosities, the language is decidedly modern, yet underlined with a narrative of Chinese tradition and craftsmanship.
