The Jiangnan boutique hotel was designed in order to revitalize the area in which it was created.

Designed by the architecture firm 'gad' and 'GFD Interior Designs,' the space is modern but also offers an intimate environment that is designed to have a home-like quality. Wooden features and muted colors make up the entirety of the Jiangnan boutique hotel, making for a soothing environment for its visitors. The hotel was designed in what was once dilapidated affordable hiding, and the firm gad had a year to "regenerate space in the historic district and balance preservation and demolition, as well as heritage and innovation."

This hotel works to combine traditional and modern elements and the final result is a space that revitalizes the area that surrounds it, without taking away from its culture or history.
