WOW has been appointed to design a 300 room lakeside hotel as part of the Suzhou Tourism Bureau’s efforts to introduce high-quality hospitality products to enliven the northwestern shore of Lake Taihu. Thus, a culturally referential and yet progressive design language is used to express a building typology that maximizes lake views and integrates architecture and landscape into a harmonious experience. The building mass blends into the surrounding hills, and introduces a variety of courtyards and terraces that pays homage to Suzhou’s artistic and literary culture.
