studio 10 creates 'impossible' escher-inspired hotel interior in china

these pink and green hotel interiors are inspired by the work of dutch graphic artist M.C. escher. the project is the work of studio 10, a design practice with offices in shenzhen, hong kong, and new york. located in northeastern guangxi, an autonomous region in southern china, the vibrant interiors form part of ‘the other place’, a guesthouse by the li river in pingle county, guilin.

as part of the project studio 10 renovated the guesthouse’s existing rooms using escher’s work as a constant reference point. the design team sought to create a ‘mysterious, infinite and impossible space’ that accommodated a host of optical illusions. a forest green color scheme has been used within the ‘maze-themed’ spaces, while the ‘dream-themed’ rooms are rendered with a pale pink and white color palette that lends the project a fresh and serene quality. throughout, lighting fixtures and electronic appliances are hidden behind a series of black-painted doors.
