Conrad Shenzhen

Shenzhen, China

As part of the Hilton family of hotels, the new Conrad Shenzhen is a luxury 300-key property that features cascading amenity floors and landscaped roof gardens along its western side, oriented to provide views of the adjacent green belt and Qianhai Bay. With the parcel bordering the expressway on the south end, the Conrad tower and signage are prominent and visible from a great distance in the surrounding context. The unusual triangular site and challenging setbacks led to a unique design that optimizes views, program location and outdoor amenities.

The tower features an offset core, providing a majority of the hotel rooms with views of the bay. A tiered podium defines outdoor space for the ballroom, as well as rooftop areas for the bar, dining and pool. A large porte cochère welcomes guests at the ground level and features large-scale sculptures and landscaping that help create a serene, elegant atmosphere within the bustling city.

The guestrooms feature large floor-to-ceiling windows that take advantage of the bay views, and a variety of sophisticated amenity and dining options define the hotel as a prime destination. The facade design recalls the textures and undulating movement of traditional woven products of the region. A material palette of high-end, warm-toned materials provides a sense of understated luxury, with touches of traditional Chinese patterns and refined detail throughout.
