Wellspring by Silks
FIH Regent Group, Taipei, Taiwan
The Wellspring by Silks hotel offers its visitors a quiet place of retreat. The sophisticated design offers a high degree of privacy, for example through the use of screens made of latticework. Traditional design elements are also to be found at the resort entrance where hand-woven banana fibre lanterns welcome visitors. By day, the hotel appears screened and surrounded by greenery. By dark, the latticework is lit up to give the entire lobby area the appearance of one giant lantern that quietly leads the way home for travellers.
Statement by the jury
»The ambitious and elegant design of the Wellspring by Silks hotel offers both privacy and an ambiance that radiates tradition in a convincing manner.«
