Text description provided by the architects. When I started working on this project, I was teaching at the Shantou University. It took four years from concept stage to completion. The site is 45 mins drive from Shantou and Dongshanhu is a famous hot spring resort at the region. When the young client plans to develop its second phase, he wishes the architect to create a unique hot spring experience. The traditional hot spring makes the water as public space, while in our design we wish to make it as the core element of the hotel. When people bath,  they will experience the nature and also the architecture.

In terms of unit design, it ranges from one bedroom to four bedrooms. All buildings are in one single floor to minimize the volume in the natural context. Each hotel room has unique landscape and privacy, the hot spring is extended to semi-outdoor which people can enjoy the mountain view while bathing.

Many architects emphasis the buildings in terms of massiveness and put nature to be second importance. In this case, we invert this relationship that nature is the first place in the complex for organizing every architectural elements.
