INTERCONTINENTAL

Guangzhou

A landmark port for traders to sail through the Pearl River Delta, trading commodities sets the design inspiration for InterContinental Guangzhou.

Anchoring the lobby space, several semi-private timber framed pods sit randomly yet purposefully on a raised platform in front of a 3-storey feature wall made entirely from undulating wooden slats that form familiar vessel shapes.

The specialty steak restaurant Char, is a reinterpretation of a rustic southern steakhouse with interiors of classic cowboy elements and feature walls made from a mosaic of cowhide panels.

“The melding of Guangzhou's rich tapestry, heritage and business culture formed the basis for the nautical interior concept of InterCon Pazhou.”
