How HBA focused on well-being in its design for The Anandi Hotel & Spa Shanghai

Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) completed the design of The Anandi Hotel & Spa Shanghai. Located in Shanghai’s business district, the design of the property was inspired to bring in the concept of healing throughout the hotel space.

Warm, muted tones are offset by notes of vibrant color alongside natural materials like live edge wood and healing stones. The design team also used bamboo and water features throughout the property to link its indoor and outdoor environments, as well as echo the restorative principles that informed the design.

Aside from the indoor garden in the lobby, there is also an intimate seating in the lobby lounge, and this is bridged by high-arched walkways that allow for visual space to inspire reflection.

Natural materials and finishes were also used in the guestrooms.

Artwork used in the property was provided by Canvas, HBA’s art consultancy.

The onsite spa uses a palette of earthen tones and materials.
