And the AHEAD Asia winners are...
LTW took home 2 wins, Lobby & Public Spaces and Guestrooms, for our project, Grand Hyatt Xi'an in this year's AHEAD Asia 2020 awards!
Grand Hyatt Xi'an, the 396-room hotel is part of the Maike Center, a greenfield mixed-use development comprising 5-star hotel and office towers connected via a 2-storey F&B bridge, sitting atop a shared retail podium. Drawing from the rich history of Xi'an as one of the "Four Great Ancient Capitals of China" and located at the eastern end of the Silk Road, the design concept for the hotel is inspired by the famous route's rich, multi-cultural history, native colors of the textiles and spices traded across regions, and iconography of the desert, earth and adventurous spirit of those who traversed the route in search of new successes.
The judges saw clever thinking in guestroom layouts carried through with daring execution. "It is a beautifully designed guestroom, with intelligent design and a strong connection to the place, inspired by the silk road which historically is a start point in Xi'an", mentioned by Guy Dittrich, Editor-at-Large at Sleeper magazine, through the live broadcast on the AHEAD website. On the Lobby & Public Spaces category, the judges praised the dramatic volume and sophisticated ambiance it created.
A celebratory event with the nominees, winners, judges, sponsors and ticket holders will take place in Singapore on 7th September 2020.
