Its fourth collaboration with the iconic hospitality brand, KPF’s design takes inspiration from nature and the nearby Jinji Lake.
The Park Hyatt Suzhou covers 305,000 square feet and includes amenities such as event spaces, a fitness center, a pool, and fully equipped spa. The Sleeper article describes the inspiration behind the project’s design – the Suzhou Gardens – and the integration of nature throughout the hotel including its stepped terraces, indoor/outdoor gardens, and sweeping views of the lake.
In the article, Josh Chaiken, Design Principal, spoke to the process of bringing the client’s request of a “contemporary estate organized around intimate gardens” to life. Inkai Mu, Managing Principal, discussed the long-standing partnership between KPF and Park Hyatt Hotels, and emphasized how the project pays homage to Suzhou through its low-rise design, inclusion of gardens, and prioritization of lake views.
