Four Seasons Hotel, Beijing
Urban Hotel / China / HBA Hong Kong / Completed in 2012
HBA contrasts traditional Chinese architecture with the modern spirit of China's capital in styling the Four Seasons Hotel Beijing. Developed to reflect Beijing's cultural richness and contemporary edge, the 307-room flagship is a new icon for the Four Seasons brand and perfect fit for its location in the heart of China's oldest and most progressive city. The hotel's linear, bold architecture provides a backdrop to abstract art, decorative light fixtures and unexpected materials, in a union of Imperial Chinese elements and contemporary design. The result is a harmoniously balanced space, layered with modern and traditional references.
