Hassell | Radisson Hotel at Century Park
HASSELL undertook the interior design and landscape architecture for the Radisson Hotel setting a new benchmark in Shanghai’s hotel offerings. Whilst the 362 room hotel is predominately aimed at the business traveller, the client’s passion for contemporary art has ensured that the design solution is anything but conventional.
HASSELL took the Radisson project as an opportunity to explore traditional Chinese design elements and craftsmanship reworked in a modern environment, so that both visitors and locals may start to experience Chinese culture and design on a different level.
The design concept was driven by the integration of art as functional elements which inject colour and interest in an often unexpected manner, while still ensuring guest comfort and practicality. The artwork is unified with the design to create elements of intrigue and surprise.Location: Shanghai, PR China Architect: Hassell Project name: Radisson Hotel at Century Park Disciplines: Interior Design Expertise: Hospitality, Leisure and Tourism Year: 2006 Scale: 362 rooms Client: Zendai Property Status: Completed Recognition: Awards 2007 Interior Design China Awards – The First Prize Overall – Hospitality Design Award 2007 IDA – Commendation – Hospitality Interior Design 2006 APIDA – Silver Award – Hotel Publications It’s a regret not to canonize our own culture, Modern Decoration, no 10, Oct 2006, pp. 29 – 47 Another family, World Design Pioneering, vol 9, no 4, 2007 Radisson Shanghai X2, issue 1, 2007, pp. 16 – 17 Radisson Hotel, Interior Designer China, vol 2, Autumn/Winter 2006, pp. 97 – 103 Design Hotel in China, Space, Hong Kong, 2007, pp. 15 – 18
