Xi'an is a place full of representatives of human culture,Chang'an, the ancient capital of Xi'an, has been in The City for more than 5600 years and is set to be 1077 years old.LINOW wants to make a design that conforms to the spirit of the city,How to deal with the "retro" and "innovation" conflict?
Design is innovation, and we are opposed to the simple and brainless Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V, which are not in the same time, and today's design is in line with today's life and is the most solid bridge between "retro" and "innovation".
Xi'an LINOW HOTEL & BAR uses the walls of the ancient capital brick as a key design element that blends "old" and "new" and innovates on materials, colors, contours, lines and even stacking scales to create a unique, intense and exaggerated sense of space. This becomes a brand new container, with a versatile modern life scene.
The design is disassembled and reorganized in the method and material aspects. By innovating the materials, the old elements are endowed with a new language. In different spaces, various spatial experiences are achieved by creating a contrast between the old and new; relying on halos on the surface of materials, a cascading, transformable and psychedelic effect is so created as a response to the bottom color of soil.
