Grand hotels are our cities’ lounges, with their generous open lobbies, and their ballrooms and spacious restaurants. They symbolise the welcoming of a neighbourhood, a town, region or country.

 

Lux* Hotel will be the lounge of LuxeLakes, Chengdu. Ideally located in the heart of this new part of town, it will welcome visitors from the neighbourhood, and from Chengdu and beyond, into its large, fully glazed spaces overlooking the water to the north and west, and the wooded park to the east.

 

Lux* Hotel will be the urban heart of LuxeLakes, at the crossroads of the public walkways that will set out north from the amazing cultural centre designed by Antoine Predock and run past the future music bar, before extending along the waterfront, then heading south to the future retail developments and beyond, the future ‘water town’.

 

From its spacious lounges, at any time of the day or night, you’ll be able to contemplate the lake and garden, get something to eat, stroll around, or just sit back and relax. In the daytime, the place will be awash with light, facing the lake and the LuxeLakes centre. At night, it will be surrounded by the city lights and shimmering trees. Visitors will also be able to get together in the spa, right at the water’s edge, or in the indoor-outdoor swimming pool, or the various spaces dedicated to body culture. People will come here to have a drink in the rooftop bar and to gaze out over the panorama of the city from the bar’s outdoor public terrace.

 

The city’s smartest weddings will also be held here, by the water, in the spacious glass-walled function rooms located northside, with the ceremonies making the most of the close proximity of the park to welcome newlyweds. The park will be notable for the density of its trees and its contoured surface, providing a contrast with the water and protection from traffic noise.

 

Grand hotels are those that lodge firmly in our minds as unique and exclusive places that we remember and that make us want to return. We need to move on from repetition of the international codes of hotels that all look the same the world over – soulless and instantly forgettable.

 

Lux* Hotel will lay claim to a high degree of distinctiveness and to being firmly rooted in a place and a culture.

Lux* Hotel will surprise its visitors…

 

Thanks to the pleasure of being on the water. Lux* Hotel will be a hotel on a lake. It will be part of the water, reflected in it. Like an island, surrounded by water and vegetation. You will reach it by boat, docking along wooden platforms that will look as though they’re floating on the water. Most of the guestrooms will open straight on to the water. Some of them will have a private balcony overlooking the water. Water and reflections will be palpable everywhere…

 

Thanks to the pleasure of being surrounded by greenery on all sides, with the large tree-filled public park to the east and, to the west, tall trees planted in the water, filtering the views.

 

Thanks to its majesty and mass, and its deep, wide balconies, running alongside the water and slightly staggered in relation to each other, forming a pattern both rhythmic and graphic.

 

Thanks to its relationship with time. Lux* Hotel will look as if it’s always been there. Before everything else. Time will seem to have passed it by, passed by its mono-material, made up of heavy wood and metal; passed by its floors, by its dark wood ceilings and its black ironwork. Its capacious inclined balconies will bear witness to long-ago movement, now stilled. Lux* Hotel will invite repose.

 

Thanks to the presence of art. Lux* Hotel will be a museum as well as a hotel. It will call on artists of renown, selected according to whatever spirit we wish to impart to the place. Art will appear over the great painted ceilings, coloured tattoos overhanging the vast lounges and inviting themselves into the guestrooms as well. Each area will be like a museum room  and an artist’s collection room combined, overall creating the desire to come back again and again….

 

Thanks to its exceptional outdoor swimming pool, which will be an extension of the lake bordered by scenery.

 

Thanks to the generosity of its guestrooms, each of which will have a fully glazed 6-metre-wide façade, stretching across a private balcony, and cover an open 6mX6m space.

 

Thanks to the comfort and luxury of its guestrooms, with their spacious bathrooms, jacuzzis and perfectly integrated amenities, as well as their comfortable furniture – it, too, inviting you to unwind.

 

Because each room here will be unique, each decorated with a carefully curated artistic theme.

 

True luxury will make itself felt through simplicity, scale, and the relationship with nature and light.

 

With its vast 15-metre-high floor-to-ceiling glass walls at the northwest corner; with its great cantilevers boldly overhanging the lake and, on the southern side, marking the way to ‘water town’; and with its huge public rooftop terrace…

 

Lux* Hotel will become a destination and, we can’t help but think, the icon of LuxeLakes.

 

 

 

Jean Nouvel

知名大酒店都会成为城市的沙龙。她们的门厅宽阔,面向公众开放,她们的宴会大厅和餐厅更是家喻户晓。这些酒店犹如一個社區,一個城市,乃至一個省份,甚至一個國家的会客接待区。

在麓湖湖畔,成都丽世*酒店将会成为这样一个沙龙。在城市新兴区域中心,丽世*酒店将为人们提供众多的聚会空间,这些人可能来自周边,可能来自成都,或来自更远的远方。宽阔的空间里将有众多景色映入眼帘,既有西北两侧麓湖的波光粼粼,也有东侧城市花园的绿叶殷殷。

丽世*酒店将是麓湖的城市核心。沿着公共滨水步道,由北部安托内∙普雷多克杰出设计的艺展中心出发,经过音乐酒吧,沿水而行来到南边的办公商业,并一直漫步到未来的“水镇”。

白天或夜晚里的任何一段时光,都可被人们在酒店的厅堂里随意打发,闲暇的时光可被消磨于对湖面,园景的流连凝视。人们可在这儿调养疏理,漫步闲庭,人们可在这儿休栖慵懒,安逸沉思。夜里,能拥城市灯火静观树影;日间,可临麓湖碧水沐浴天光。人们可在水疗中心得到护理,还可在毗邻的室内/室外泳池里畅游,在康健室里舒展身躯。人们可在屋顶酒吧一杯小酌,从天景平台尽揽麓湖的城市全景。

这个城市最美好的姻缘也将在这里被见证,在北侧滨水落地幕墙婚宴大厅里,在周边繁花似锦的公园和花园中,场场典礼迎接着对对新人。与平静的湖面对应,枝叶繁茂、生机盎然、坡地起伏的城市公园消弱了公路对于酒店的滋扰。

知名大酒店常常会植根于记忆中。就像那些世间独一无二的地方,我们会留下记忆并期望再来。

我们必须走出当今酒店的通行模式:代码复制,即在世界的任何角落都没有差别,没有灵魂,并很快被遗忘。

丽世*酒店将有她特殊性,她属于这里,她属于这里的文化。丽世酒店将让世人惊喜:

惊喜来自于水,水给人带来的快乐。丽世*酒店生长于水边,属于这片湖,与清波交映。如一座小岛,为碧水和绿树环绕。乘船而至,滨水平台舒展绵长如漂浮水上。大部分房间可俯瞰湖面。部分客房拥有私人的滨水露台。水波,倒影,宁静,在这里可以被随处感受。

惊喜来自于树,树给人带来的愉悦。丽世*酒店生长于丛中,东边城市公园的林木密植,郁郁葱葱枝叶繁茂;西侧水中的树木高大,过滤着看与被看。

惊喜来自于她的华贵与厚重,层层平台厚实宽阔,依水延伸,相互间平滑错动出节奏和韵率。

惊喜来自于她与时间的关联。丽世*酒店似乎属于永恒,她存在已久,早于一切在场。时间作用于她,作用于她的单一材料,作用于她厚重的木材和金属,作用于她的土地,作用于她的深色木质天花和她的黑铁构件。她层层错动的平台,如同被时间瞬间凝固。丽世*酒店邀请您在此处稍作停歇。

惊喜来自于她大量的艺术存在。丽世*酒店如同一个博物馆。根据要赋予的场所精神,我们将会邀请和挑选著名的艺术家对彩绘天花进行艺术创作。这些色彩纷呈的作品将会漂浮于各个公共空间之上,也会漂浮在每个房间中。一个个空间就像博物馆的一间间展室,收藏艺术家以 “渴望”为 主题的系列作品,表现对“来到”和“再来”的渴望。

惊喜来自于她作为湖面延伸的室外泳池,奇妙独特并为景致环绕。

惊喜来自于她的客房,6.50米宽的落地幕墙使客房与宽阔的私人露台内外呼应,展现室内 6米乘6米连续空间的大气慷慨。

惊喜来自于客房的舒适和豪华,来自于木质主材,来自于大浴室,来自于日光水池,来自于各种设施与舒适的家具,松弛人的身心。

惊喜来自于每个房间的独一无二,来自于不同主题的艺术天花。

真正的奢华将在这里被体现,将被体现在简洁上,体现在尺度里,体现在其与自然和光的关系中。

奢华也将被其西北角15米通高玻璃幕墙所体现,也将体现在该角部的巨大临湖飞挑,也将体现在南部飘逸的悬臂,那里是去往“水镇” 的渡口,也将体现在向每个人开放的天景平台……

丽世*酒店将会成为一个目的地,成为麓湖的标识,为世人所知。
