As a partner in the international project business, Villeroy & Boch provides bathroom system solutions. This is also the case for the W Beijing Chang’an design hotel in Peking.
Hip, colourful, modern and high-class – this is how the W Beijing Chang’an design hotel in Peking is designed, which is located in the proximity of world-famous places of interest such as the Forbidden City or the Tiananmen Square. The international architectural design office RTKL and the interior designers from AB CONCEPT in Hongkong developed a dynamic overall concept for the hotel (completed in 2014), which is to appeal especially to young, trend-conscious guests: The entire hotel was showcased with spectacular installations, lively colours, unusual materials and special lighting.
The public toilet facilities are also designed in this way – with high-quality, partially colourful surfaces, ingenious mirror effects and modern branded products from Villeroy & Boch. The attractive bathroom sinks are from the Loop&Friends series, which encourages flexible combinations with its straightforward design and four geometric shapes, circle, square, rectangle and oval in various installation variants and sizes. There are also WCs, bathroom sinks and accessories from the Architectura professional series, which are designed with the special requirements of plumbers, planners and architects in mind. The wall-mounted DirectFlush WC from the Architectura series has an innovative flushing function, which does not need a conventional flushing rim thanks to its intelligent water flow. This special design ensures that the entire interior bowl is flushed thoroughly without water splashing out. DirectFlush has an optimum flushing performance even when using just 3 or 4.5 litres of water. In addition, the rimless WC is quick and easy to clean and is thus ideal for use in areas with increased hygiene requirements, such as heavily frequented places. The men's toilets were equipped with urinals from the Subway series, which combines a modern design with practical functionality.
