The Ritz-Carlton, Astana

Organic shapes resonate throughout the property, giving the hotel a unique sense of flow. Other notable design features include the flooring in the reception of the hotel that has an inlaid metal floral pattern, which radiates from the base of the dramatic feature staircase and the fossilized trunk sculpture by Jon Krawczyk.

Feature wall panels with illuminated features inspired by petrified birch trees create a beautiful decorative back drop to the reception areas, whilst the wall in the Ozen lobby lounge has carved out recesses, inspired by the organic stratified structure of the Mangystau mountain region of Kazakhstan, to add a sense of privacy.
