Sunrise Kempinski Hotel, Beijing & Yanqi Island

Print_Kempinski-Yanqi-LakeThe Sunrise Kempinski Hotel delivers the ‘wow’ factor in its design and imagination

The luxury Sunrise Kempinski Hotel, opened in Beijing on 2nd February 2015, is a striking architectural statement taking the shape of a rising sun.

It’s a soaring curved monolith rising from the ground, tracked with vertical bands and incorporating elements of Chinese culture and wisdom.

Designed by Shanghai Huadu Architect Design Company, the concept is ‘oriental sunrise’, emphasizing the integration of nature and the building, whilst introducing the ‘architectural language’ for the hotel by using 20 vertical warps, representing co-operation and harmony.

The front view is that of the ‘rising sun,’ symbolic of the fast-developing economy of China. The entrance of the hotel is shaped like the mouth of a fish, symbolising prosperity and from a side-angle view, the building is shaped like a scallop, which represents ‘fortune’ in Chinese culture. Other Chinese cultural elements are also employed throughout the design process.

The Kempinski hotel group’s largest development in China, the Sunrise Kempinski Hotel is just an hour’s drive from Beijing city centre and 45km north of Beijing Capital International Airport. It includes 306 guest rooms and suites across 21 floors and has taken over 9,300 construction workers two years to complete.

Located alongside the picturesque Yanqi Lake with spectacular views of the Yan Mountains, it’s surrounded by attractions such as the Mutianyu Great Wall, Hongluo Temple, Qinglong Gorge and Baiquan Mountain.
