A new hotel brand, Chapter & Verse has broken ground in Wuzhen and is slated to open in spring 2018.
The first Chapter & Verse hotel is located in Wuzhen, Zhejiang China. This 5,000-square-meter (53,800-square-foot) boutique hotel overlooking the water is surrounded by a stunning landscape.
To meet the expectations of the rising creative class and all independent-minded travelers in China, the new hotel aims to make daily life a verse that individuals will integrate into this creative chapter of their lives. Through simple, inspirational design and storytelling as well as the concept of extraordinary experiences, the atmosphere and features provide the joy of discovering new things.
There will be 30 rooms and suites with the addition of two individual villas, one of which will be used as an atelier.
The architecture of Chapter & Verse, designed by New York based New Practice LLC, is a juxtaposition of modernity with traditional riverside dwelling in Wuzhen. The multidisciplinary design company NOSIGNER, based in Yokohama, created the branding for the hotel. E-DESIGN from Osaka designed the hotel's landscaping. Illumination of City Environment (ICE), the lighting designer of the newly opened Hoshinoya in Tokyo, has been appointed as Chapter & Verse's lighting design partner. UDS designed the hotel's main building's interior and acted as the consultant for the operation.
