Hotel- Atelier Deshaus

The hotel is located in the Xixi National Wetland Park in Hangzhou.  The project was finished in 2008.  The new hotel design tries to apply the characteristics of settlement like, spread and border, similarities and differences, and aggregation and growth to create a texture of village with freeness and romanticism.  This produces a poetical mood of village which is the idiosyncrasy of Jiangnan area.

One thought on “Hotel- Atelier Deshaus”

  1. Man, I love obscure, at least to a Westerner’s point of view, Eastern expression. It’s bizarre yet calming to me. I can’t really tell what’s going on here, but I’m not sure I would be able to if I were there. If there is one thing that I appreciate about this is it’s total commitment to artistic expression through architecture. So often, architecture bows to conventionality or purpose. It’s rare but so pleasing to see architecture unbridled.
