Hebei Grand Hotel, Anyue in Shijiazhuang, China earned an Honorable Mention in the LIT Lighting Design Awards 2020!
Comprising two symmetrical towers and 60 villas, the project blends classic Chinese architecture with modern needs to create an urban getaway. Lighting plays an essential role to transform the project’s magnificent luxury during the day to subtlety and agility at night. Façade lightings are inspired by Chinese landscape paintings – the towers are like commanding peaks over the valleys (low-rise villas). The lighting mimics the effect when the morning haze forms a shimmering outline at the building edges, with rays penetrating the valleys.

Besides Lighting Designer, LWK + PARTNERS is also the Design Architect and Landscape Architect of the project.
