You have never seen a hotel like this before. The new Sunrise Kempinski Hotel in Beijing was inspired by the shape of the rising sun – and the result is a gorgeous glowing orb sitting on beautiful Yanqi Lake, bursting with luxury.
Perhaps the coolest part of this hotel is the design. In addition to the sun imagery, the entryway is meant to look like the mouth of a fish – which in Chinese culture symbolizes prosperity, and from the side the hotel is shaped like a scallop, which represents fortune. The Sunrise is also covered with more than 10,000 glass panels designed to reflect the scenic surroundings: The top reflects color of the sky, the middle Yanshan Mountain, and the bottom the lake. At night, the building is lit with glowing LEDs.
