Mood Board | Batu Hotel

Grid patterns and crisp lines are softened by an earthy color palette in this hotel interior in Chengdu, China, by local firm Archetype Design Organization. Located in a building from 2002 that was previously used as shops and offices, the 3,209-square-metre Buda Hotel is sandwiched between the city’s busy Yizhou Avenue and a quiet community neighborhood.

The exterior of the hotel is clad in a charcoal-colored calcium silicate board. An entranceway clad in walnut paneling and rectangular mustard yellow tiles guides travelers inside. The mustard tiles continue inside the hotel’s lobby where they stretch across an arched ceiling that the architects said was installed to evoke a homely atmosphere.

The jump in colours is to define the relaxation and cuteness of the hotel, and we chose yellow to keep the visual temperature of the hotel. The choice of mustard yellow tiles is to increase the meticulous experience while ensuring the durability of the hotel. It also forms a strong contrast between the hotel and the surroundings

xoxo, Joe
