This riverside hotel development by the Suhe Creek encompasses the historic Chamber of Commerce building, gazetted as one of Shanghai’s finest heritage buildings. We collaborated with ACPV to create a stylish and tailored hotel environment that the Bulgari brand is known for.
Built in 1916, the Chamber has been restored to house the hotel’s ballroom and dining facilities. The brief was for the heritage building façade lighting to evoke memories of an opulent era, while utilizing modern LED technology and creating synergy with its contemporary surroundings.
In creating visual contrast between old and new, lighting for the contemporary hotel tower and landscaping was kept understated and chic, while the historical facade lighting amplified richness, tactility and the play of shadows.
