Le Méridien Saigon, HCMC, Vietnam
International architecture and interior design firm dwp was commissioned to work on Vietnam's first Le Méridien Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, overlooking the Saigon River. dwp was tasked with creating the interiors for the public areas and guestrooms, as well as making the artwork selection.

Working closely with the owner and the Starwood Group, the design concept devised presented Le Méridien Saigon with a strong sense of place, whilst maintaining the brand's strong European design history and guidelines.

dwp wanted guests to experience a discovery of the city from check-in, through to the public areas and right up to the guest rooms. Each area of the hotel expresses its own design direction, yet all areas are connected via the same journey. Western design influences meet and blend seamlessly with a contemporary interpretation of Vietnamese culture and history, punctuated with an eclectic collection of Asian touches and vibrant splashes of colour.

Entering through the glass and marble façade portal, guests are met with a 9m-high, cathedral-esque space to the lobby. A strong connection to the Saigon River is voiced through materials, textures, patterns and shapes, such as the water bubble chandelier and hanging lamps that illuminate with a sense of movement. Free-flowing curves and draping walls suggest rivulets, streams and diversions, further denoting the water theme, delighting guests and staff alike, with a welcoming environment.
