The texture of crystal comes from purity and penetration, without impurities. Under solid light, a crystal reflects the colors of a rainbow, with a gradually refined texture over its life that, when polished, is brilliant and lustrous.

The "Whiskey" theme of the Crystal Orange Hotel draws from those characteristics, like a polished gentleman leading guests into an exclusive club. Even after indulgence, guests will find themselves in a safe and comfortable environment conducive to relaxing.

Whether in its open or private spaces, a high level of quality is reflected in visible and touchable textures, infusing guests with positive vibes upon entering the hotel. The dazzling starlight of the infinity mirror box provides a sense of washing away external turmoil, invoking liberation and relaxation between the open and private areas.

By removing outdated spaces, refracting the light of crystals, and radiating new brilliance, we transformed the established conditions of the original building into more functional meanings. In the latest version of Crystal Orange Hotel, the design returns to the simplicity of essence and purity.
