Architecture for China from Hong Kong & China based Oval Partnership (Warning: website opens with sound) who have completed many large scale projects in China such as the world famous Sanlitun Village.
The building is a winner of the RIBA International Award in 2012 and is a 17 bed hotel set in dense woodland outside Kunming.
From Oval Partnership
This eco guest house is conceived as a village for travelers, with
17 guest suites in a cluster of four L-shaped structures linked by natural trails and
courtyards at varying levels. Densely landscaped with many retained trees, the timber
clad building with reconstituted bamboo decking is a simple arrangement of forms
largely devoid of decoration. Each building unit is composed of three masses – two
wings and a semi-opened vertical circulation unit – linked by a viewing bridge-
corridor. Each guest suite reads as an extension of the landscape. Integrated with a
cantilevered balcony, the living spaces open directly into the surrounding greenery.
