In January 2019, Hilton Chengdu Xiexin Hotel officially opened. Like all the works that require patience and meticulous polishing, this project, which lasted seven years from design to construction, is also the first project of Dushe Design. It's late, but it's worth the wait. Xiexin Hilton Hotel is part of Xiexin Center Project and is located in the east section of the second ring road in Chengdu. This is a 220,000-square-meter urban integrated community including Grade A office buildings, hotels, commercial and residential buildings. The hotel is the most challenging part.
The most efficient Hilton standard hotel (30,000 square meters with 296 key rooms) Since the hotel is the last phase of the project construction, in addition to meeting the necessary municipal retreat, it is also necessary to ensure the retreat of the built office buildings and residences. Therefore, the buildable area is only 5000 square meters. Under such tight land conditions, it is almost impossible to build a five-star hotel with 30,000 square meters on the ground and 296 key rooms, and at the same time to meet the highest standard of guest rooms and supporting facilities of the Hilton hotel management team. With years of experience in hotel design, Dushe creatively integrates comfortable use of space with a reasonable structural electromechanical system, which perfectly solves many pain points such as planning, construction difficulty and cycle, space interest and cost. The final design has a total of 296 guest rooms, including a high-level executive floor, an 800-square-meter banquet hall, a 500-square-meter full-time restaurant, and a full set of auxiliary facilities such as a Chinese restaurant, a flavor restaurant, and entertainment and leisure.
The most confusing hotel (can you see that the facade cost 900 yuan per square meter?) In terms of facade design, the project also faced challenges. Due to development cost considerations, the unilateral cost for the facade of the hotel is only 900 yuan/㎡. The owners and hotel managers also hope that the exterior of the hotel will reflect the consistently high quality of the Hilton brand. These seemingly contradictory design requirements place extremely high demands on the design. The "Chicago-style window" increases the lighting and vision of a single guest room. The transparent fixed window in the middle protrudes forward, and the recessed opening sashes on both sides ensure the overall look and feel of the facade. The design greatly reduces the application of decoration, and the modern methods of chiseling and geometric abstraction have replaced the traditional classicist line decoration methods to ensure the simplicity of the building facade. Due to cost control, the choice of stone is very small. The design team decided to select the ordinary "shrimp red" with the original unit price of less than 100 yuan. Most of the standard stone lines are treated with lychee surface to reduce the texture and color flaws. At the same time, the joint design ensures that the male corner junction part is prefabricated in the factory as much as possible. The on-site assembly part is mostly internal corner handover, ensuring the accuracy and details of the overall curtain wall to the greatest extent.
