THE LANGBO CHENGDU, IN THE UNBOUND COLLECTION BY HYATT
Redefining Chinese Style of Travel and Stay
The hotel, the interior of which is designed by YANG, is located at the East Street of Chengdu where is suffused with both historical profoundness and modern vitality. Taking “jade” as the thread, the design fuses Chinese cultural essence into the Western hotel brand’s DNA with an attempt to present “classical” lifestyle in a “modern” way. In addition, the most representative local folk art - Sichuan Opera - is borrowed to continue the spirit of the place and to redefine Chinese style of travel and stay with a quality of “modest luxury”.
CHONGQING SUCH MANSION
The Past of the Mountain City and the Memories of the Republic of China
The hotel is where historical stories are blended perfectly with modern art. Here, the times forgotten for a hundred years are revealed, and classic fashion is traced back. Chongqing Such Mansion is located in the Ciqikou Ancient Town, Shapingba District, which was the main cultural area during the time of the Republic of China (ROC, 1912-1949). With the theme of “dream back to ROC”, YANG draw on the hotel space to evoke memories of old China so as to deliver business travelers an elevated, private spot where they may experience urban culture.
