The Yangzhou Crowne Plaza is sited at the Yangzhou new economic zone, next to the Convention Centre. The strong influence of Chinese culture is evident in the architecture as expressed in the traditional roof form.
This sets the tone for the character of a modern building respecting its roots.
The interior design draws inspiration from the famous Yangzhou Bamboo forest, integrating nature into a theatrical setting for modern facilities and spaces. For example, the lobby space is like a magnificent valley or a crevice in a rock, where two walls represent the opposite sides of the fissure. As a famous poem goes, this is the place where everything is rooted, where everything starts and grows. The lobby’s elements, such as the columns, reception counter and feature wall, represent bamboo sprouting out from the cracks.
