Made up of quasi-historic residential buildings from the 1950s, Vue offers a variety of architectural styles with decorative roof eaves, gargoyles, sculptured balconies, and lattice window frames unified through color and landscaping.
Buildings are draped in a dark charcoal gray with key details highlighted in a contemporary gold patina.
Spaces between buildings are clad in gray bricks and ambient light that lines the lobby walkway.
Lakeside animals come to life as human-like mascots or companions for hotel guests, including 15-feet-tall wireframe pink rabbits that live on the roof of the aptly named Pink Rabbit restaurant.
Pink Rabbit boasts an abstract screen pattern derived from cracking frozen ice on a lake, which was extrapolated as a wall treatment to underscore existing steel roof trusses in the restaurant.
The upscale Fab Café Bakery features sharp, angled lines against muted tones with pops of yellow for a playful touch.
The monochrome palette extends into outdoor staircases for a soothing aesthetic that distinguishes between the historical and contemporary design scheme.
The sultry Moon rooftop bar overlooks the Houhai Lake from its large second-floor terrace.
Cobalt, fuchsia, and sunshine yellow accents amplify the neutral palette in the 80 guestrooms with some offering private balconies or decks.
