Since opening in September last year, EAST Hotel has proven to be a popular addition to the international business hotel scene, featuring in Condé Nast Traveller and Travel + Leisure magazines’ top hotel lists for 2013.

Displaying an acute sensitivity and connection to its surrounding landscape, EAST has become known for its striking curved glass façade and unique interiors which showcase original artwork by local contemporary artists from the nearby ‘798 Art District’. A design-led scheme, the integration of modern amenities and technology were important aspects of the interior design and detailing, alongside a suite of state-of-the-art business and leisure facilities.

John Denton, Benoy’s Director of Interior Design commented: ‘We are very excited to receive the HA+D award which has reinforced our belief in the unique design attributes that set EAST Hotel apart from other schemes’.

Located in the Chaoyang district of Beijing, this is Hong Kong-based Swire Group’s second EAST brand hotel; the four-star business hotel is part of the new mixed-use retail-led ‘INDIGO’ development, set to become a prime business destination for Beijing. Benoy’s scope of work has included the Masterplanning, Architecture, Facade and Interior Design for EAST hotel, and the entire INDIGO development.

The 369 room hotel includes 23 suites, a business ‘zone’, state-of-the-art conference facilities, premier restaurants and state-of-the-art leisure facilities. The hotel has been specifically designed to take full advantage of the tranquil park views from the adjacent 17-hectare park situated to the east, unique for a hotel in downtown Beijing. The curved facade of the hotel tower has been specifically created to maximise bedrooms with a stunning park view.

The interior design concept was to create a contemporary, yet welcoming business hotel. The interior is styled using a minimal colour palate that incorporates natural materials, inspired by the adjacent park. A unique design feature for the interior is the incorporating of original artwork by local artists, referencing of the nearby vibrant ‘798 art district’.
