The first Crowne Plaza flagship hotel in China has been settled in Shenzhen, featuring “WorkLife” rooms. CCD was invited to conceive its interiors. By adopting innovative design approaches and modern style, CCD team interpreted the cutting-edge lifestyle in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area. As the first opened hotel within the international 5-star hotel complex in Expo Bay of Shenzhen, the project will set a new benchmark for Crowne Plaza properties in China.
Compared to conventional hotels of the brand, Crowne Plaza Shenzhen WECC showcases a brand new image which is younger, more modern and stylish, with colorful hues and fun details. It aims to provide today’s modern business travelers with superior and dynamic experiences.
The hotel is highlighted by a suspended infinity swimming pool, which is the first one of its kind in China and gives a first impression of the cool coastal city. The creative combination of contrasting materials and elements, including solid cement walls, transparent glass, soft water and warm sunlight, produces unexpected effects.
The entrance canopy features 5-meter-high water curtains, which greet guests with a cool and refreshing atmosphere. As night falls and the temperature goes down, the canopy area is illuminated by lighting, which creates charming and unique visual experiences. The entrance appears indistinctly and keeps a low profile, which embodies oriental Zen atmosphere and helps relieve the fatigue in business trips.
