Artyzen Hospitality Group (AHG) has signed a second Artyzen Hotel in China in the Sifang Collective, 30 minutes from Nanjing, a site known as an ‘architecture wonderland’.
The Sifang Collective complex, situated in a preserved forest, showcases the collaborative work of more than 20 world-renowned architects, including Ai Weiwei and the first Chinese winner of the Pritzker Prize Wang Shu, who have designed a variety of functional spaces and art exhibition venues over the course of 10 years.
The 200-room Artyzen Sifang Nanjing will be set amid the Sifang Art Museum, which when combined with the conference centre and events space, are ideal for hosting product launches, fashion shows, film shoots, wedding receptions, AGMs or large corporate events, the company said in a statement.
The conference centre, designed by Irata Isozaki, includes a gallery space, various conference halls and auditoriums, and a selection of the museum’s permanent art collection, allowing visitors and business travellers to hold meetings and events while being immersed in a total artistic experience.
Allan Yip, AHG vice president of marketing, distribution and brands, said: “We look forward to welcoming guests to this one-of-a-kind destination at the end of next year.”
This will be the second Artyzen after the Artyzen Habitat Hotel which opened early this year in Shanghai’s Lingang New City.
AHG is a subsidiary of Hong Kong-listed conglomerate Shun Tak Holdings whose portfolio also comprises Zitan and citizenM.
