OneJee Hotel

Located in Shenzhen, China, a new boutique hotel OneJee Hotel is targeted for business travelers. The meaning of the hotel name denotes ‘cloud creation’ and it is intended the distinctive quality of ‘cloud’ to offer staying experience in a fresh and imaginative state of mind.

Full height timber screens in sculptural form defines circulation and provides spatial compartmentation to this open-planned restaurant. Different seating patterns and levels of privacy are introduced to suit different activity needs. The overlapping screens also filter out natural and artificial light and provides guests with a poetic dining experience day and night.
