The design of Tianjin Hotel orients the building mass to create better views towards downtown Tianjin while curving back part of the volume to create a covered area for the hotel entrance and drop-off.

The hotel lobby functions both as check-in for the hotel itself as well as a gallery space for guests and locals alike and offers direct access to the hotel’s amenity spaces and gardens.


The hotel design, from lobby to room, is seen as an extension of the traveler’s home with a focus on simplicity and comfort. The hotel has a total of 250 rooms including single and double rooms and suites. Each room is designed using natural, warm materials such as wood, brushed aluminum, and natural wool carpets to create a simple, relaxing and inviting room experience.

The hotel includes landscaped garden areas in its surroundings as well as private terraces for public events and private celebrations.

“The design for the Tianjin Hotel focuses on the use of natural materials mixed with modern design. We wanted to create a hotel experience that eliminates the hassle of traveling by creating a calm and inviting visitor experience that integrates and celebrates aspects of the local culture through art and exhibitions.”
