The Grand Mansion, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Nanjing
Urban Hotel / China / Melbourne / Completed in 2015
Inspired by the historic Presidential Palace and Oriental Metropolitan Museum, the hotel features an extensive collection of artifacts from around the world that are grand in detail and boutique in look and feel. Featuring a museum within its building envelop, HBA designers blended The Grand Mansion and the museum to create a hotel of timeless character and an expression of an art aficionados' collection. The design narrative is that of a well-seasoned traveler who returns home to display their artifacts and heirlooms in an intimate and warm space.
