Taoxichuan Hotel, in the Unbound Collection by Hyatt
Taoxichuan Hotel, in the Unbound Collection by Hyatt, named by AIM Architecture “The Road of a Fascination,” is a story of a journey: Like the long and fascinating life of porcelain, a journey toward the unknown, the unexpected, an urge to find the truth, and all the encounters in between.
Set in the world’s porcelain capital, AIM Architecture embarked on an exploration into the framework of porcelain: its origin, technique, but also the materiality, the aspects of travel, the colours, and the its relevance to the world
Each space in the hotel explores and uses ceramic differently, pulling out different colours and textures, and is a piece of this journey: the origin (Lobby), the creation (Lounge), the discovery (Ballroom), the fascination (All Day Dining), the appreciation (SPA & Pool), and the return (Guestrooms).The project seeks to unite raw and refinement, turning ceramics into architecture, interior, furniture, and patterns. Here, ceramic is commemorated in a way it has never been, expressing both as an honest material and exploring its versatility and power in interior design.
