As a respect to historical weaving textile industry of Zhengzhou, we created sculptural-like landscape weave and fold to reveal an aesthetically pleasing public space. Series of undulating lawn stripe represent the silk being woven – up and down – into fabric sheets by traditional machine. Interval space is defined by matching the existing lobby pillars and architectural orders to stitch the landscape and building together in the master plan seamlessly integrated with car parking layout. Water feature stripes with sculpture is proposed in front of lobby drop-off as main welcoming elements.

The use two different colours for finishing of stainless steel for the planters is to play with the unique public/private characters of the urban hotel. When view from public road side, brilliant bronze colour is used to project an outgoing and fun energy signify this urban corner while black mirror material is selected to achieve a more calm and relaxing when perceived from the hotel side looking out.

With the fact that there are massive structure of new underground metro station beneath half of our landscape spaces, we took great care in coordination of paving patterns, manholes and planting soil depth to achieve a simplistic design result. This is including camouflaging the four ventilation shafts and emergency staircase structure that pops up in landscape with mirror finishes making them disappear visually.

Le Meridien Hotel is located in an urban intersection of Zhengzhou City, China. It is a small-scale renovation project with around 6,000 SQM of landscape area in the front of existing five star hotel completed in 2013 by Neri & Hu. Client’s brief is looking for a stunning hotel frontage landscape to improve the overall appearance as well as resolving the ground parking spaces and vehicular movement at the same time. With the location that is located in a quite densely populated area we set to achieve a landscape that is interactive, imaginative and artistically crafted to become the new landmark for this neighborhood.

After the landscape was completed, it lightens up the whole hotel district with the wavy lawn stripe, the unified reflective water feature, and the interplay of reflection from mirrored planter finishes. It’s a privately owned public space that becoming a new gathering spot catered for various activities from meeting up with friends, Instagram selfie to wedding photoshoot. The landscape is being perceived as a new landmark of this intersection and draws many interest from people in the neighbourhood and beyond.
