The Waldorf-Astoria Beijing is a luxury hotel project located in the heart of downtown Beijing, China, next to Wang Fu Jing, the famous high-end walking shopping district, two blocks west of the Forbidden City.
The exterior is featured with bronze, the royal material which expresses the luxury, dignity, and legend of the Waldorf brand and reflects the character of the site location. The superframe, connecting the roof and anchoring building corners, recalls the symmetry and steady character of Chinese traditional architecture.
The carefully detailed bay windows with large floor-to -ceiling glazing provide the best city view for each guest room, and create a unique window room area with featured window screen for guests to enjoy the special living experience in Beijing. An orientation-particular shading frame system not only establishes the special exterior look for the hotel but also protects the building and minimizes the solar heat gain from all directions to make it a cultural but highly sustainable structure.
