Studio HBA designs world’s largest Aloft in China

Inspiration came from the geometrical elements of the city’s traditional Xiguan residences near the old walled city.

Interior design firm Hirsch Bedner Associates assigned its Studio HBA team to style the new Aloft Guangzhou Tianhe in the Tianhe District in China.

Neighboring CITIC Plaza in the southern manufacturing powerhouse, the hotel has 498 rooms. Completed for owner developers Tianyu Group, the design brief for the hotel extended throughout the interiors, from public areas and a 24-hour gym to conference venues, library, office lobby, business center, executive lounge and restaurants and bars, including W XYZ Bar, 24-hour snack bar Re:fuel by Aloft and all-day dining venue Sesamee Tree.

Inspiration came from the geometrical elements of the city’s traditional Xiguan residences of traders near the old walled city. But the overall design was in tune with the Aloft brand. Guestrooms were styled with colorful palettes, textured carpets and accented furniture. Colors used included blues, purple and greens mixed with tones of golden beige.
