CHAO Hotel

CHAO, the “nest”, a social, lifestyle experience and private customization platform; provides for lifestyle connoisseurs a new way of life, and another ”nest habitat” outside of their private lives. In addition, high-quality light environment further develops the sense of magic and mystery.

CHAO Hotel CHAO Hotel

CHAO is a boutique-style hotel located in the bustling Sanlitun. The design inspiration for the 180 rooms and five kinds of room types is from the “Nest” of animals. Its design uses a multi-level, diversified space strategy, through the use of different materials, colors and elements to present the historical charm and vitality of times. The transformation of CHAO hotel has become the model of hotel renovation.

CHAO Hotel

CHAO is different from the general hotels, in addition to the traditional hotel functions; book walls, underground exhibition room, and stages were also designed for exhibitions, receptions, and a variety of future activities. This makes CHAO closer to humanities, art and life; adding senses of culture and society into the atmosphere. Lighting design takes full account of basic hotel functions and artistic demands; designers fully integrated changes between light and shadow, artistic trends and cultural aspects. Approaching and walking through the hotel, lighting creates spatial surprises for guests in every subtle detail.

Today, the overall light environment of a hotel has become an important factor in determining the hotel quality. Within a habitat, the distinctive lighting environment perfectly blends in with architecture and the environment. In this creative space of cultural and art, lighting design is no longer simple or ordinary; the use of bright and dark, strong and weak, with the vivid rhythm and dazed colours, created for this attractive interactive social experience platform a pleasant or even psychedelic “CHAO” flavored extraordinary experience.
