Factory 8 Hotel

Type: Hotel
Client: Heng Yue Development
Location: Guangzhou
Design: 2004 - 2006

The Factory 8 is an existing factory building in Guangzhou. To give the budget hotel a unique character, the concept of "moving windows" was developed. The carefully tiled windows gave the fa?ade rhythmic quality. The 2 blocks were proposed as one white and one black giving the buildings an idiosyncratic character.
