LYCS architecture's mylines westlake is designed as a themed lovers hotel in east china

LYCS’ ‘mylines westlake’ is an interior renovation project for an existing building located in hangzhou, china. the design expands from the conventional emphasis of a themed hotel, redefining the stereotypical concept of a ‘lovers hotel’ with a new spatial experience.

chinese based office LYCS architecture‘s design for the hotel not only focuses on stimulating its guests of a new experience, but aims to create four indispensable senses: relaxation, romance, relief and passion. the 33 rooms are categorized by primal human needs of ‘narcissism, exposure, sadism, fantasy, romance’. in addition to emphasizing maximum comfort levels for its guests, ‘mylines westlake’ solidly manipulates its spatial quality through interior, exterior, scale, plan organization, and sound and lighting control. these five key factors are added to create an environment which integrates sensory experience with surrounding environment. the result is a space that encourages the users to release their natural human impulses.
