DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Light of CHAO

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Hotel

INSPIRATION:
CHAO, the "nest", a social, lifestyle experience and private customization platform; provides for lifestyle connoisseurs a new way of life, and another ”nest habitat” outside of their private lives. In addition, high-quality light environment further develops the sense of magic and mystery.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
CHAO is a boutique-style hotel located in the bustling Sanlitun. The design inspiration for the 180 rooms and five kinds of room types is from the "Nest" of animals. Its design uses a multi-level, diversified space strategy, through the use of different materials, colors and elements to present the historical charm and vitality of times. The transformation of CHAO hotel has become the model of hotel renovation.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Design can be like music, or like poetry. CHAO’s restaurant is designed to deliver more emotions, building an atmosphere, creating an exquisite feeling of openness, and makes full use of building space. The exposed ceiling on the first floor bar area is made of metal materials and decorated with candle-like luminaires, creating a strong modern industrial sense. For lighting, the use of track lights adds flexibility, while decorating ceilings and table surfaces. Large-scale illuminated ceiling on top of the bar table is designed to create a night of fantasy and intoxication.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Completed in August 2016, the CHAO hotel is located in bustling and stylish Taikoo Li Sanlitun Business Area in Beijing.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Light type includes: recessed adjustable downlight, recessed downlight, wall washer tracklight, recessed wall washer, burial light, track spotlight, surface mounted flood light, recessed step light, surface mounted wallwasher, spike mounted spot light, night light, LED continuous strip light, recessed 3-circuit track, surface mounted 3-circuit track.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
With the bright and dark contrast from the entrance to the interior lobby space, a sudden sense of openness is felt immediately after the guest enters the hotel. If the hotel room is the soul of a hotel, then the public space is the veins connecting a hotel. The stair space of Chao hotel is designed to be a unique open space; it organizes and connects to other interior spaces. Lighting design also breaks all the traditional boundaries, drawing on design practices of public interiors, and integrated with the design concepts of exterior and art galleries; abandoned the traditional hotel lighting methods of decorative lighting. The pixel-like fabric ceiling design has become the focus of spatial vision; through the linear backlight treatment, the entire ceiling floats up, forming a complete post-modernist painting.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The project involves an experience-oriented boutique hotel of high cultural taste. The interior space design adopted the strategy of multilayer and diversification, integrating the functions of hotel, library, exhibition, club and salon and utilizing nearly plain building materials to create an atmosphere full of cultural appeal and modern design vitality. Unlike standard space layout in conventional hotels, the project is more like a new-type art show space that takes into account the fundamental functional requirements of a hotel. The lighting design also attempted to break the routine, trying to bring more visual beauty and flexible functions and seeking ultimate enjoyment for the eyes and experiencing on the premise of meeting basic lighting demands in the hotel. While the needs for multifunction were met, everywhere that the eyes can catch was treated like artwork creation, with elements like façade and structure highlighted by lighting techniques, thus shaping the functions and individuality of the hotel and creating a space for sharing of high novelty and imagination.

CHALLENGE:
Sunlight Hall is the hotel's most chic space; lighting designed for simplicity, avoiding destruction of the top space’s permeability. There is not even one downlight used in the architectural ceiling. The space aesthetics is fully revealed by wall luminaires on both sides. The illuminated walls provide an impressive range of possibilities for a variety of events or art exhibitions. Different from the standard space in conventional hotels, the Grand Nest Hotel is more like a new-type room for art show while maintaining the basic functional requirements for the running of a hotel. From this aspect, the orientation and philosophy of the lighting design in the hotel were bound to be distinguished from conventional hotels. On the premise of meeting the basic needs of functional lighting, we made great efforts to add visual aesthetics and functional flexibility and diversity to the space by making the indoor space of the hotel a great artwork and highlighting and shaping the elements including façade and structure by lighting techniques, so that each part of the space would be worth savoring.
