Hotel LN Garden
Located in southern China's Guangdong province, on the Zhu Jiang (Pearl River) estuary, the LN Garden Resort is part of the Nansha Seaside Park. The building forms a unique entity with the surrounding landscape - the shaded and sunny elements rhythmically form the spatial dynamics. The hotel's volume and its mountainous effect are disintegrated with parallel horizontal lines of the facade that form an envelope which wraps itself around the building.
The central lobby features an art installation that fills out the empty space and intensifies the sensation of the elements: light, air, wind and water.
The guests can choose between different restaurants, each offering a new experience and atmosphere, evoked by different materials and furnishings. The banquet hall, primarily intended to accommodate special events, is designed to reflect a theatrical experience. The Chinese restaurant, which is accessible through the banquet lobby, overwhelms the viewer while he steps into the double height grandiose space with a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape. The Western restaurant is situated under the central lobby. It features seating arrangements set around and under a central square with trees.
In accommodation units the accent is placed on luxurious and natural materials as well as on spatial organization which allows an unobstructed view on the surrounding landscape.
The northern part of the ground floor is reserved for relaxation and different types of leisure activities. Health center with a swimming pool with whirlpools, hydro-massages, a 25 meter swimming lane and an outdoor extension is situated in the double floor height northwest wing.
The hotel outdoor areas are designed to merge the building with the surrounding landscape. Green elements from the exterior appear in the interior linking it with the environment.
