Beijing’s Pangu 7 Star Hotel is the latest masterpiece by world-renowned architect C.Y. Lee, creator of the iconic Taipei 101 story World Financial Center. The five tower complex features lavish hotel suites and private residences, a world-class office building, deluxe restaurants, conference rooms, and breathtaking views of the 2008 Olympic Park and 680 ha/1680+ acre National Forest Preserve.
The Pangu 7 Star Hotel is distinguished by 140 elegant suites, including a palatial, one of a kind Presidential Suite and, 84 Grand Deluxe, Premium Deluxe and Premium luxury rooms. Two column-less ballrooms, Pangu (400 guests) and Grand (500 guests), and five meeting rooms, and a host of personal services, including TechnoGym fitness, spa and indoor pool, and 24-hour in-room butlers, further enhance the amenities. The 45-story office tower is furnished with a full complement of sophisticated meeting rooms, and equipped with state-of-the-art audio/video communication technology
Mindful of the critical need to control sound pollution in this hyper-luxurious environment, the architects engaged WSDG at the earliest design stage to consult on acoustics. Plans and drawings were scrupulously diagnosed, by WSDG’s international organization to provide expert counsel on avoiding sound leakage, reverberation, HVAC, elevator, generator, and related noise issues. Special attention was paid to the Ballrooms, Executive Conference and Meeting Rooms, and to the hotel suites and private residences. WSDG recommendations encompassed a variety of noise governing methods from soundproof doors to Clearsorber® perforated transparent foil for expansive glass areas, and absorptive ceiling tiles in public areas and corridors. By adapting WSDG guidelines prior to construction the C.Y. Lee architectural design team shielded the Pangu investment group from incalculable time and budgetary overruns associated with unanticipated, post-construction acoustic modifications.
