c+ architects brings the landscape into the interiors of a hotel in china

 

related to the ‘naza hotel’ design series, ‘nashare’ is a hotel located in xiamen, china and designed by c+ architects with only 12 rooms, where the majority of them act as completely independent units. each one has a private entrance and courtyard to ensure a quiet home spatial experience. in addition, they all a magnificent view from where the ocean and forest can be seen. the hotel is built in a tranquil space consisting of acacias, pines, and natural stones far away from the city making it an ideal hidden world for relaxation.

the design intention c+ architects had was to achieve a relationship between nature and the hotel by elaborating a cooperation with the environment, creating an appropriate space to engage with its surrounding. the house is the space carrier, therefore, the studio came up with the idea of an ‘invisible container’. there are two room types; one is about renovating the existing space while the other one is about placing the container on the hill after renovation. the rocks and the trees create a great view for all rooms. in terms of landscape, keeping an original status is achieved by reducing the artificial elements and blurring the boundaries between the architecture and the surroundings.

although separated from each other, each unit is connected by a path and the views. on site, they look like a cluster and each one of them can completely engage with nature. due to the level change, every unit is located at a different height, resulting in a vertical-knot perception.
