• LWK + PARTNERS hotel project named MIPIM Asia Awards Silver winner

    8 February 2021

    Hebei Grand Hotel, Anyue, designed by LWK + PARTNERS, won a Silver Award for Best Hotel & Tourism Development in the MIPIM Asia Awards 2020! The project is best known for its curated mix of traditional and modern aesthetics in both site planning and architectural design.

    Situated in Zhengding New Area, a historical city developing as a new CBD of Shijiazhuang in China, Hebei Grand Hotel, Anyue celebrates traditional architecture as well as contemporary hospitality. The hotel features a pair of twin towers, 60 resort-style low-rise villas and various hotel facilities in a north-south oriented masterplan inspired by the ancient city, creating a unique urban getaway full of refreshing greenery for business travellers and international guests.

    This marks another achievement for Hebei Grand Hotel, Anyue after it received an Honorable Mention in the LIT Lighting Design Awards earlier this month. The success of project is an outcome of design collaborations across offices and disciplines, with LWK + PARTNERS Hong Kong and Beijing studios on the architectural design along with its Landscape and Lighting Teams.

    “We are incredibly grateful to receive the prestigious MIPIM Asia Award,” said LWK + PARTNERS Director Ferdinand Cheung, “At LWK + PARTNERS, we are committed to bringing the best experience to people and we will continue creating spaces that embrace both culture and nature.” Established in 2007, the annual MIPIM Asia Awards recognise excellence and innovation in the Asian real estate industry and remain one of the region’s most respected award programmes. The award presentation ceremony took place on 26 January 2021 in Hong Kong and was streamed online for the first time in light of the pandemic situation.
