Located in the center of Zhengzhou, China, Le Meridien is a small scale hotel project, approximately 6000 Sqm. Le Meridien is currently completed. This project is a luxury hotel designed by Neri & Hu back in the year 2013. Due to the renovation requirements back in 2019, Shma was invited to design the landscape space in front of the hotel.
In this project, our approach was to design and create a sculptural-like landscape that represents the weaving textile industry in Zhengzhou. This feature is to be introduced as a frontage demonstration landscape for Le Meridien. As it is a renovation hotel project, Shma had also cooperated to solve many site problems during the construction progress, and as a result made the hotel to finally become a landmark in the neighborhood of Zhengzhou and its surroundings.
