Hotel in China for Those who Enjoy Contact With Nature
By Magaly • Mar 6, 2018
This hotel, located in the town of Deqing Xian, Huzhou, Zhejiang, China, has an area of 1491 square meters. It was designed in 2017 by the architectural firm Naturalbuild under the direction of its architecture professionals Yanfei Shui, Yichi Su, Yuanrong Ma, Dan Deng and Hanhua Xu. It is tucked into the southwest corner of a silkworm farm previously owned by the state in Yucun, Moganshan, Zhejiang province.
The design is limited and also motivated by both the dynamic present and unpredictable perspectives. The strategy of interiorizing the landscape not only establishes a gesture of defense against the unfavorable conditions of the environment, but also converts the saturated interior space into part of the landscape.
Most rooms are in the southern part of the main building to get enough sunlight as well as to have panoramic views of the garden. At the west end, there is an outside gallery and a pool, which frame the main entrance and create a perimeter that cushions the site from the main road.
Along with the main building, an outer gallery formed by columns forms an open patio area that only serves hotel guests. As for the construction on the east end, it is an independent and isolated villa that can be rented to a whole family.
