Hyatt Regency Suzhou at Jinghope Square
Suzhou, N/A / China
The Suzhou Jinghope Hyatt Regency is a 356-key hotel tower anchoring a large mixed-use development of office, retail and apartment buildings. While each tower houses its own distinct program, the overall design attempts to unify the buildings into a singular complex through materiality and geometry. The sweeping geometric arcs of the building’s mass link the towers along the public street edge. Simultaneously, their arrangement on the site frame a series of internal “Suzhou style” gardens nestled within the complex. Similar to Suzhou rock formations, each tower is uniquely distinguished within the holistically conceived complex through highly articulated exteriors. The Hyatt Regency facade weaves multiple types of glass into a quilted pattern of light which accentuates the cellular guestrooms while simultaneously unifying the tower presence. Additionally, protruding and recessed façade components create pockets of highlights and shadows which punctuate the tower massing, creating a sense of depth and emphasizing the radial tower geometry through the movement of the suns reflections. Internally, a full-height central atrium provides dramatic views and natural light throughout each guest floor corridor. Hotel amenities primarily occupy an adjacent stone plinth which further allows unique views and abundant natural light for meeting spaces, restaurants, and fitness facilities.
