The design style of The Langham, Shenzhen combines a classic European aesthetic with Chinese detailing and a dash of contemporary glamour. The lobby makes a strong first impression: It’s a sea of white marble, illuminated from above through a massive light feature of long crystal pendants that arc around a central column. Nearby, a sweeping staircase climbs to restaurants and ballrooms above, bringing a sense of ceremony and grandeur, even if you’re just headed to the bar. Throughout The Langham, Shenzhen, textured fabrics and tufted upholstery are used to create richness, along with crown molding and many meters of polished wood. Hand-painted Chinese murals grace the walls between rooms, and Chinese decorative objects are placed in rooms, but in keeping with The Langham brand, the overall design is classic European, or at least an evocation of it.
