The first Shangri-La in North America, CHIL designed the lobby, function spaces, retail space and the Chi Spa. This 119-room luxury hotel, located in the heart of downtown Vancouver occupies the first 15 floors of the tallest building in the city. The lobby is an opulent expression of a modern getaway with a lounge and bar offering a reprieve from the busy shopping district. Chi Spa draws inspiration from the origins of the Shangri-La legend, a place of personal peace, enchantment and well being.
With five treatment suites of 42 square metres each and one larger couples suite, they have their own fireplace, private bath, shower, relaxation lounge and changing areas. This project was completed by CHIL Design Group, whose operations were acquired by B+H in December 2010.
