DESIGN CONCEPT: One might imagine that Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake has been there for a very long time, because although it’s newly built, it adheres to a traditional regional style known as Jiang Nan. Characterised by pagoda-like peaked roof pavilions linked by walkways through carefully landscaped water gardens, Jiang Nan was popularised during the Song, Ming and Qing dynasties. The colour palette features white walls, black tiles, gray rocks and red columns in harmony with natural greens and browns, and blue sky. The use of water features such as lagoons and streams allows for cooling in hot weather. The small scale of Jiang Nan gardens provides an intimacy and connectivity with nature as bamboo represents forests, and rocks are reminiscent of walking in quiet valley riverbeds. It’s a style that encourages a feeling of unity with one’s environment, an elegantly calm existence sought by emperors, and travelers, for centuries.
With its gardens, lakeside setting and resort-like amenities, guests may imagine they are in a country club, rather than an urban hotel just minutes from business, shopping and cultural attractions.
