The design team delved into the local Shanghai culture and modern aesthetics, based on the meandering form of the Huangpu River, using the invisible rhythm to create "atmosphere" and make a hotel that people can "feel", and composed a city symphony for Profor. This is a unique way to write a sequel of the city of Shanghai.
Prodor hotel has a total amount of 51 rooms. The complex includes a restaurant, a bar, a multi-purpose concert hall and a place for relaxation and study.
The designer borrowed the natural light from the flowing water to create a transparent and magnificent lobby, alluding to the aesthetics of the sea culture of accepting all rivers and being eclectic.
Multiple oversized curved columns are placed in each functional area, bringing different feelings from a distance to a closer look with irrational modeling posture. It allows people to appreciate the simple and clear rhythm of space.
The hotel shows another dimension of space: luxury is not a pile of expensive decorations, but a diverse unity designed in a logical way and rhythm, like the afterglow in music and the white space in painting.
