LTW Unveils Designs for Luxury Five-Star Hotels In Asia

December 11, 2017 Hotel Developments No Comments Email Email

Building on a year of successful project launches, LTW Designworks, the award-winning Singapore-based design firm, is pleased to announce three of their latest completions in Asia, including Cordis Shanghai, HongqiaoGrand Hyatt Changsha and Shangri-La Colombo in Sri Lanka.

Cordis Shanghai, Hongqiao

LTW pays tribute to Old Shanghai with their design for Cordis Shanghai, Hongqiao. A throwback to 1920’s Shanghai, vintage street scenes are subtly articulated in the design through contemporary expressions. Examples include the backlit display boxes in the bar showing Shanghainese street scenes from the early 20th Century, and elegant etched glass murals with stylized Chinese women and cherry blossoms.

The hotel guestrooms exude a subtle yet sophisticated simplicity. Rooms and suites feature bespoke furniture and fittings in muted tones of white and grey. Textured silk wall panels feature traditional Chinese motifs that signify good fortune, with accent details such as oversized persimmon qipao buttons. In Ming Court, the hotel’s Chinese restaurant, vintage Shanghainese pin-up etchings along with bronzed metal and patterned glass screens create a quiet ambience that harks back to Shanghai’s Golden Age.

Grand Hyatt Changsha

The design team pays homage to Changsha’s landscape and history through the hotel’s interior design. The expansive lobby showcases a striking red and white feature wall with dramatic vertical fins rendered in lacquered wave patterns. Bas relief motifs and floral compositions also draw guests into the space. Spacious guestrooms feature warm hues with thoughtful details such as white slotted panels inset with art blocks, glazed brick red tiling and floral carpeting.  

Inspired by the city’s bustling local markets, the hotel’s all-day-dining restaurant makes use of double and triple-height volumes created to evoke drama. The Asian barbeque restaurant is designed with raised timber platforms and raw finished wall panels inset with oversized fish artwork to mimic river villages built on stilts along the Xiang River.

Shangri-La Colombo

Taking inspiration from its seaside location, LTW has re-invented Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo’s interiors, bringing to life the natural beauty that Sri Lanka is blessed with in a contemporary context. LTW has adopted a soothing palette for the guestrooms and suites, incorporating shades of cool grey, off-white paneling and soft blue and white carpeting. Custom-designed furnishings and accent materials, including woven leather wall panels, marble topped nightstands and textured fabrics and upholstery inspired by Sri Lankan crafts, further evoke a sense of elegance. The timeless design direction extends to the other hotel function areas, where the interiors blend harmoniously with luscious gardens.
