Elevated Design Sets Apart This Award-Winning Chain Hotel
2023 Best of Year Winner for International Chain Hotel
Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu’s investigations into Far Eastern and occidental history informed The Shàng by Artyzen, Shanghai, a 76,000-square-foot hotel, the debut of a new brand by Artyzen Hospitality Group. The 210 diminutive guest rooms—a quirk of the existing building—recall cabinets of curiosity: Panels hidden in the white-oak and concrete grids covering walls and ceiling can be activated to reveal such functions as a closet or lavatory, and beds invisibly integrate drawers. Compact custom furniture, meanwhile, references designs in Le Corbusier’s Cabanon House on the Côte d’Azur. The double-height lobby, conceived as a lantern, is bedecked in oak screens with perforated patterning alluding to leafy shadows cast on city streets, while glass-shade lamps in the lounge behind the central stair recall 1930’s banker versions.
