Mei Lin Hotel,

Shenzhen, China

The project involved change of use to turn the property from a manufacturing plant dormitory occupancy to a hotel occupancy. The main design brief asked for minimum building costs to bring about a temporary operation of a hotel which was to be demolished in three years. A retail mall will replace the current structure along with blocks of multi-family condo units. Glass canopy at roof top and fronting the entrance were created as architectural features to create the appeal of a hotel property.
