Lantern Hotel is a contemporary Chinese hotel located in the heart of SoHo in New York City. An important challenge of this design is to create a harmonic connection between a late 19th century cast iron building and Chinese interior elements and finishes. For the design approach, it is based upon the traditional Chinese lantern and the notion of bringing people together. The design concept is based on the use of color, light and structure of a traditional Chinese lantern to create and define the interior spaces through symmetry, balance and harmony.
