Wilson Associates, a global architectural design company, has unveiled two new exciting luxury Asian hotel projects – the Hilton Jinan South Hotel & Residences in Jinan, China, and the Skye Niseko in Hirafu, Japan
The Hilton Jinan South Hotel & Residences is situated in Shandong province's capital city, which is known for its many natural springs. The development comprises 420 rooms – 104 two- and three-bedroom suites in the residence tower and 316 guest rooms in the hotel. It is located near the city centre, and offers panoramic views of the nearby mountains, springs and lush scenery.
The hotel incorporates original art, modern architecture, distinctive dining experiences, and seamless technology into the design and guest experience. Most of the furniture, fixtures and equipment are modern, bespoke pieces that exude luxury with fresh, neutral warm materials.
The design of the hotel pays tribute to the renowned local springs, with impressions of watery strokes throughout the hotel, evidenced in art installations and richly coloured plush carpets that emulate slow romantic drifts of fallen flowers in the spring.
The Skye Niseko condominium hotel is located within Hokkaido National Park. Scheduled for completion in October 2018, it features 105 apartments and penthouses. The condominium-hotel model means that all the units can be let out to guests when the owners are not in residency, which means that there will be little cost associated with ownership.
Wilson Associates has teamed up with Summit Properties to design the common areas and penthouse interiors, with Pike Withers of Sydney handling the other accommodation units.
"Less is more" has inspired the interior space designs. Guests will be able to enjoy luxurious yet clean Japanese designs including minimal architectural finishes.
