Founder - CEO of X Living In 2011, Li Xiang founded X Living Architectural Design in Shanghai, and has ever since been building her own design team working at the cutting edge of art, fashion and business.
The hotel is located in the southeast corner of a commercial building. The reception hall on the first floor and the office building on the west share a space, which is the interchange place for daily passenger flow and staff. In such a comprehensive modern field, the integration and existence of the hotel also become particularly important. The designer breaks the established state and orthodox sense of space with unexpected artistic intervention, and opens up a new world that is different from the conventional and emerges the artistic conception of spiritual rhyme.
Concise vocabulary Outlines a highly identifiable hotel entrance, dark pink appearance highlights a unique sense of the field, trying to trigger the viewers emotional perception, transparent facade in the hazy add internal rendering power, like a guide to the center of the dream.
In view of the regular framework of the original building, the designer did not rely on the traditional strategic logic and simply divided the hotel lobby and office building by setting up a hard partition. Instead, the designer endowed the hotel with a different mission of heterogeneous components, making the commercial public space and art place directly collide and integrate. If screens are used to enclose the lobby space of the hotel, the loss of internal and external interaction will greatly reduce the experience of external viewers. Thus, one by one bubble shaped large spheres drop from the sky, breaking the traditional pattern of the wall of heaven and earth, thus realizing the romantic conception of space variation. This non-standard lobby has an avant-garde art shell and a fully functional core. Hollow and open, the scale of the holding and the placement of points, not only let the enclosed reception desk, rest area, lobby bar and other functional areas are perfectly hidden among them, more diverse target groups to create an intimate and open qining-type experience atmosphere field.
From high to low is like a sphere that slides down naturally, like a bubble that God throws into the world at will from the cloud. One of the red stairs runs through it, giving a sweet healing smell to the silvery dreamlike bubbles. Following the climb to the indigo stained second floor lobby bar, the color contrast of the detailed depiction gives off a strong sense of surreal. The ascending customers walk through it, which seems to be subtly integrated into the whole art installation, making it a dynamic interactive artwork of crowds.
Bold commercial space and public installations to produce a wonderful connection, is the designers exploratory fantasy. People walking through the office lobby can enjoy the artistic visual end of the space on a daily basis. The hazy color created by metal silver allows the lobby facade to blend in with the pure white space, maintaining a unique sense of existence while not destroying the overall harmony of the public space. The strong sense of surrealism brought by the huge structure makes the hotel lobby itself, an artistic public installation, a philosophical proposition for professionals, a setting for every life hero that the designer is striving for in the city, and the soul of every striver who is eager to break through the shackles of reality.
The simple and simple shape of the furniture and the harsh and warm texture create a strong dramatic hedge with the unreal artistic sense of the future of the whole space. Ambivalence abstracted the atmosphere that stylist intended foil, more the space theme that punishes nostalgia and dream to interweave.
Under the simple and plain concrete wall background, irregular furniture forms the unique characteristics of each room, enjoying the time and space between such as living, quietly elongating the flow of brilliance. The tilting of bed or washstand and wall creates unconventional corners and open space and satisfies the function of storage. Not only will the space not be crowded, but it also achieves the transition from formal feeling to practical needs, and aims to enable people to feel a friendly and leisurely spatial perspective and comfortable experience.
The furniture in the memory is filled with new breath and the temperature of time, which guides the customers to follow the resonance of the memory. The young children lean on their grandmother and enter into a dream with their songs. The restaurant in summer night is full of satisfaction and happiness.
In the construction of the hotel, the designer for the owners of the business concept of landscape break the trend, to build a strong visual brand influence; More exquisite spiritual expression to renew the space, so that a new idea in the ordinary life is revealed here, enhance the emotional connection between the dreamland and the dreamer.
