Aedas references traditional chinese architecture with plans for luxury resort and hotel

international firm Aedas has revealed plans for the ‘zhuhai hengqin tianhu hotel development’, a luxury resort to be built in southern china. the coastal city of zhuhai is currently undergoing a major urban transformation, and will soon include a high density financial hub. the development is located on hengqin island, overlooking the niujiaokeng reservoir. ‘this hotel development sits in the natural beauty, providing a haven of comfort and relaxation amidst the bustling city life,’ explain the architects.

Aedas’ design references the region’s vernacular architecture with buildings that feature distinctively sloped roofs. according to the design team, these canopies have been used to create ‘an exclusive and hermetic hospitality experience that roots deeply in the local culture’. this style of architecture is common in lingnan, a geographic area that encompasses land to the south of china’s nanling mountains.

the design is a response to the local climate, facilitating the draining of rainwater while simultaneously protecting the structure from being damaged by tropical cyclones. ‘the design expresses the beautiful, traditional gable roof and decorative ridge with a contemporary touch while paying homage to the lingnan culture,’ say the architects.
