Sitting atop Beijing Yintai Centre in the bustling business district of Chaoyang, Park Hyatt Beijing has recently completed its 18-month renovation. Singapore’s design studio LTW Designworks redesigned all of the hotel’s 246 rooms and suites, pre-function and ballroom area, and dining spaces. Inspired by the concept of siheyuan, a traditional Chinese courtyard, LTW’s design pays homage to the courtyard’s symmetrical composition, architecture and interiors. A neutral palette of beige, green and grey was chosen to uplift the overall tones of the guestrooms, complemented by warm timber furnishings and dark wood flooring. The 850-square-metre Pre-Function Area is a vibrant illustration of the siheyuan’s outdoor common space. The area and three adjacent Ballrooms are adjoined by expansive carpeting embellished with waves of orange, deep crimson and cedar, creating a vivid imagery of rippling fish pond.
