The Grand WUJI Hotel is designed by CCD - Hong Kong Cheng Chung Design. The overall design follows the architectural landscape, and is constructed in the “environment” and “boundary”. With the history of Nanjing as the keynote, hotel guests can feel the historical and cultural details of Nanjing while relaxing. The design team has made the space meaningful and worth experiencing and endless aftertaste through the selection of light and shadow, material, texture and the contrast of light and dark in the design. The overall design also incorporates the concept of “five seasons” in traditional Chinese medicine, namely, spring birth, long summer, late summer, autumn harvest, and winter storage.
