Ritz-Carlton Xi'An exterior

Anchoring the corner of one of Xi’an’s most quintessential intersections, the angled and intersecting form of the Ritz-Carlton hotel and retail atrium separates the iconic development from its urban context. Juxtaposing black and white stone, with floor to ceiling glass panels, reflects the elegance and luxury of the city.

External influences shape the architectural design with the north and east facades of the towers and podium, reflecting the cosmopolitan nature of the city though transparent and reflective materials. While the southern and western facades deliberately appear more solid, responding to the climatic and urbanistic influences of the sun and city.

A rooftop bar at the highest level allows guests to experience the city Xi’an from an inspiring perspective. While 50,000 square-meters of luxury retail space across five levels, above and below ground, help to make the complex a destination for both hotel guests and the public.
