Relaxation moves to new level: WIN Awards entries designed to soothe souls

A hotel as a home, a stunning spa and club and an intriguing bookcase house: all WIN Award entries vying to win

Can Bordoy is an entry in the Hotels, bed-and-breakfast facilities and other overnight accommodation category.  The small hotel with a magnificent garden is located in the center of Palma de Mallorca, has been completely renovated. The intention was to evoke the experience of visiting a house rather than a hotel with guests met at the house’s entrance hall, and instead of a restaurant guests use a residential dining room and living rooms similar to those you would find in an old house.

Jiyu Spa from the Shanghai Hip-Pop design team is an entry in Spa, health clubs and gyms category.  The word "feeling" was important to the whole design, therefore, a dramatic effect was created by the transparent and reflective glasses, used to show the hidden contents and to freeze-frame the moments, expressing those wordless feelings of the balance between light and shadow.

Jingrui Majestic Mansion Club is an entry in the Residential developments category and covers 2,700 square meters, having been completed in January 2019. The project used “instant and eternity” as the main theme, integrating the instant change of nature and a variety of elements of rivers and lakes, whilst combining the past and contemporary design trends. Innovative technology and living comfort was used to redefine a club with contemporary artistic quality and humanity.

The enchantingly named Movable Bookhouse is an entry in the one-off homes, large and small category.  Designed for children and long-term residency, Chang Yi Sheng utilized the spatial layout and colours to create a comfortable space for children and adults alike.  With many books in the household, the client wanted to create a bookstore atmosphere, which were referred to in order to create the two wooden bookshelves.
