a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Banyan Tree HuangShan Sales Gallery
Friday 28 Jun 2013
The internal spaces of the Gallery reflect the traditions and culture of this magnificent natural setting. A series of modestly scaled lobby and entrance spaces lead to the grand main rooms. The design of these spaces is emphasised by the elegance and restraint that is a character of the traditional Anhui architecture and the colouring and material visible in the surrounding landscape.
The main spaces are dominated by the rich natural colouring of the structural frame and the traditional roof form. Decorative natural elements are used sparingly to emphasise the key volume and scale of the main spaces. The wall surfaces and decorative furnishings offset this rich background with contemporary forms and softer colours to create a contemporary edge of these unique and dramatic spaces.
