Starting from the lobby space, bamboo was selectedas the key material to let customers enter the lobby space and greeted bysophisticated light and shadow effect on the main wall. Various on-site tests & experiments with traditional bamboo weaver were done to create full height screens to define reception and lobby lounge area. Pitched roof ceiling and natural diatom mud finished walls overlay by articulated light and shadow effects provide a minimal and leisure experience for the entire space.

Double height central courtyardswere introduced in every two guest-room floors. A reflective lake with bamboo installation of dancing curves that falls naturally, as if clouds are floating in the air. This ceiling hung structure was again in consultation with the master of the bamboo weaving on how to create the curves by making use of its natural elasticity and traditional connection method. Guests will feel like passing through anabstract bamboo forest before arriving at their rooms.

On the top floor Sky Café, a zen and church-like space were constructed by full height bamboo structure. Skylight above allows natural light fall in the middle of the seating area during daytime. Ceiling suspendedcircular LED lights formed endless glowing moons and provides guests apoetic experience during nighttime.

We hope that this is not just another boutique hotel project, by adding the layer of traditional culture, this hotel spacecan provide a relaxing and comfortable journey in a more meaningful way. In celebration of the unique quality of bamboo, from the architectural to the interior level, we can continue to promote and allow business travelers to appreciate thebeauty of traditional handicraft that we should have ignored. It can ultimately form aesthetic, functional, and cultural enhancement in ourbusy urban life.
