Blink Design, HBA, Aecom collaborate for Regent Place Xian

Regent Hotels and Resorts will open Regent Place Xian in the capital of China's Shaanxi province in 2016. Regent Place Xian is the second of four Regent hotels to open in the next three years, following Regent Chongqing and preceding Regent Place Harbin and Regent Jakarta.

With the external structure of Regent Place Xian complete, Blink Design Group is now working with HBA/Hirsch Bedner Associates and Aecom Technology Corporation on interior and landscaping designs.

When it opens, Regent Place Xian will have 156 guestrooms and suites decorated with elements reflecting the city's history. The interiors will include ceramic pieces of art evocative of Xian's Terracotta warriors, as well as metalwork recalling the detailing of traditional Chinese headpieces worn during the Imperial Dynasty.

Xian is the starting point of the Silk Road and home to the Terracotta Army of Emperor Qin Shi Huang, making it a popular destination for both domestic and international visitors.
