The hotel’s enclosure structure is made from a double-layer skin system in which the outer layer is weather break and the internal weather proof, forming a thermal enclosure and a thermal buffer zone.

Beijing National Hotel’s flowing shape is composed of three distinct rings connected by a single, dynamic surface. Its shiny façade will be made from a lightweight cable-net structure with many windows and skylights providing for an ample flow of natural light to the interiors and the rainforest. The façade’s design also includes curvy grooves for rainwater collection to irrigate the rainforest within.
