W unveils a new property in Guangzhou, designed by Rocco Yim & Yabu Pushelberg

W Guangzhou, the first W Hotel in mainland China, has just opened its doors. With an iconic architectural building set on the ancient Pearl River, W Guangzhou juxtaposes the historic capital city’s modern urban tapestry through cutting-edge architecture and modern interiors. 

The exterior, defined by sleek black glass, has been envisioned by Hong Kong architect Rocco Yim, while guestrooms and suites were designed by award-winning agency Yabu Pushelberg.
One major talking piece is located in the entrance, where a 19m-tall Luminous Water Wall by WETDesign, evocative of Impressionist paintings with a liquid mosaic of light, lines and colour, greets guests.
