The Hilton Jinan South, located in Jinan, China, is a refreshing 66,360 square meter urban hotel, with interiors designed by Wilson Associates. Influenced by the springs of Jinan, the interior design delivers a stylish representation of fluidity and linear tactility of the water form. Traditional elements of unique local architecture and culture are broken down and re-constructed into a holistic and urban space. Modern bespoke furniture, signature artwork selections and tactile layering of details and finishes refine the hotel’s design.
Wilson Associates teamed up with Wilson Associates’ Singapore-based art Consultancy studio, to incorporate original pieces of spring-inspired artwork that accentuate the sublime soft curves of the interior architectural features. Paying tribute to the renowned local springs, the installations emulate romantic drifts of fallen flowers in the springs.
The Wilson Associates Singapore design team collaborated with Wilson Associates’ Singapore-based Art Consultancy studio, Arte, led by Art Director Sandra De Souza, and the firm’s F&B specialty studio, Blueplate Studios, led by Design Director Dennis Tan. To create a holistic product, all teams worked closely together to integrate the overall concept in Blueplate Studios’ restaurant outlets and Arte’s art installations. The hotel property thoughtfully incorporates original art, modern architecture, distinctive dining experiences and seamless technology into the design and guest experience.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
