About Grand Hyatt Chengdu at Chicony Plaza

This mixed-use development at Chicony Plaza provides 12 floors of retail space and 25 floors of hotel and meeting area. The massing of the building was driven primarily by the site context; to the northwest of the building lies a pedestrian plaza which provides direct access to the retail podium of the building. The hotel tower was positioned at the south edge of the site in order to minimize the shadows cast across the plaza while providing unobstructed views for guests and a strong vertical expression for the complex.

The façade design comprises opaque white and clear vision glazing, contrasted with a play of volumes that relate to the pedestrian scale and allow natural light into the interior spaces. Operable windows promote the use of natural ventilation while remaining inconspicuous on the planes of the façade. Atop the retail podium and stepped volumes of the hotel are thickly planted roof gardens which are accessible to building users, providing a pleasant outdoor experience which relates to the nearby open public areas.
