The Wuji Jinling Eco Hotel is designed to be the first boutique wellness hotel in Nanjing. The simple and Buddhist living space promoted by Chinese traditional health theory is the starting point of our architectural design. We combine the element of traditional Chinese garden with a contemporary architectural approach in a way that Chinese and Western elements merge harmoniously to a high quality architectural space. In addition to the clear relationship between architectural volume and simplified facade design, we created courtyards for the hotel rooms with Chinese design features to form a climate of Chinese Garden. The complex is open to the urban landscape to the west. Hence the urban green is induced to the courtyard and every corner of the architectural space to form a vertical, diversified green space. This is a kind of direct experience to green building and emphasizes the spatial concept of eco-hotel. The Eco Hotel is located in the heart of Nanjing Software Valley. With only 10-minute drive to the Nanjing South Station and metro station at the North east corner, the site enjoys huge transportation benefits.
Since ancient times, Fuzhou is famous for its spas. The International Conference Center includes about 160 acres of tourism landscape part. Phase II of the Conference Center is located in the north-west of Huaian, directly on the shores of the Min Jiang river. The project consists of two smaller, separate club houses with meeting and dining facilities and one conference center with guest rooms, all facing the river.Rather than trying to stand out, our approach for the Conference Center is rather blending into the natural environment of the surrounding landscape. All central service and conference facilities are organized in a podium, while the guestrooms are organized in seven floors above, organized in an international, resort style hotel scheme. The facade is organized horizontally, using wooden elements as screen for the balconies of the hotel rooms. In order to visually reduce the massing of the building, the volume of the conference center is folded twice.
The Haixia Hotel is part of the new convention and exhibition district in the east part of Fuzhou. The three towers located at the main street have separate functions: one office tower and two hotel towers. To make place for a public plaza facing the river, central functions which are usually located in the first floors of an hotel (event hall, restaurant, bar and KTV) are relocated in the upper floors as lifted podium that connects the two hotel towers. In order to satisfy the requirements for sunlight and ventilation of the hotel rooms of the main tower, a bigger hole was cut out of this overhanging podium. On top of the podium is a rooftop skybar with great view over the lake.
