The Wenjin VIP Club, is a 2000 m2 interior renovation of the Wenjin Hotel in Tsinghua district, Beijing, China. The hotel extension comprises of extensive office spaces for its members- a Wine Tasting School on the ground floor and Art Galleries, Boutiques, a Cigar Room as well as a Wine bar, Cafe and VIP Eastern and Western Dining areas on the second floor. This highly customized design comprises of custom designed furniture nesting into milled components, soft materials nesting into hard materials and cantilevered backlit metal planes. The various programs, from public to private, shift in formal intensities; the more intimate lounge spaces being imbued with a richer color palette of wines and cognacs and more exuberant ceiling geometries. Club members immerse themselves into an increasing voluptuous environment, culminating at the cigar lounge, the apex of intensity, both experimentally and formally.
