Commune by the Great Wall — An Architectural Collective


“Commune by the Great Wall is Hyatt’s latest addition to their Unbound Collection of hotels — but more than that, Commune is a prizewinning architectural collection of 12 villas, each designed by 12 Asia-based architects. ”

We were commissioned to refresh the brand, whilst they updated their interiors thanks to AIM architecture.

Our work was in two parts: first, a guest journey that interweaves the past and present. With its unique location just off the Great Wall, we knew it was important to create a cohesive hospitality experience where all elements are integrated: old and new, human and nature.

The second part of our work was a visual identity based on their existing logo. We created a system using a limited colour palette of sleek silver, matte black, and a bright red accent: sophisticated but contemporary.
