The St. Regis Tianjin is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the “Design Excellence in Hotel Architecture” in the recent Hospitality + Design Awards 2012. This recognition follows the St. Regis Tianjin’s grand opening in November 2011 and is a testament to the hotel’s innovative design. The St. Regis Tianjin is located in the prestigious Heping District, the financial heart of the city considered the “Jin Men” – or “gateway” – to Northern China. Constructed of steel and glass, the 18-floor building rises from the river in the shape of a hollowed cube, further enhancing the concept of Jin Men. Showcasing architecture by the world-renowned architecture firm of Skidmore Owings and Merrill (SOM), the iconic newcomer to the rapidly evolving Tianjin skyline is becoming an architectural landmark while setting new standards for luxury and bespoke service.
"We are elated to be honored with such a prestigious award commending The St. Regis Tianjin’s exquisite and memorable architectural design,” said Paul Cunningham, General Manager of the hotel. “It is rewarding to be recognized for our efforts in creating a visually enticing, luxurious hotel where guests and locals enjoy bold architecture and magnificent interiors, bespoke St. Regis butler service, deluxe amenities, and unique dining experiences at the best address in Tianjin.”
The HA+D Awards invite both design talent and product manufacturers from around the world to submit their best projects and products. All submissions are vetted by a panel of international judges and the global readers of Hospitality Architecture + Design, Hotel Design, Hotel Management Asia, and Luxury Hotelier, making the HA+D Awards the most comprehensive reader’s choice awards within the hospitality industry.
The 274-room St. Regis Tianjin is an exquisite sanctuary of unsurpassed elegance along the picturesque Hai River. The building’s distinct design is modern, cosmopolitan and glamorous, reflecting the marriage of past and present that is indigenous to both the St. Regis brand and Tianjin, historically one of China’s most international cities. The bold shape redefines the city’s skyline and reconfirms Tianjin as China’s gateway. Project architect, SOM has designed many signature projects over the past two decades that have redefined China’s urban landscapes including the Pearl River Tower in Guangzhou, the China World Trade Center in Beijing, the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Center as well as Hong Kong’s International Airport, the Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai, and Tianjin’s new Financial Center.
