Cliff Hotel of XiaoZhou Mountain - GWP Architects is an entry in the Future Project - Mixed Use category at the 2019 World Architecture News Awards.

Cliff Hotel of XiaoZhou Mountain is located in Lishui, China and covers 5,000 sqm.  The design scopes include overall planning design, architectural design, circulation design, facade design and interior design and is under construction, expected completion to be December, 2019. Chief Architects: John Zhang, Tina Wang and designers: Jackal Luo, Ben Huang, Allen liang, Ken Chen, Kim He, Venson Zhu.

In the overlapping fields, nature is the only role, but hiding in the scattered terraced landscape seems to be the most elegant symbiosis of architecture. Following the fluent natural rhythm, scattered guest room space is arranged. The transparency of the glass curtain wall blurs the boundary between architecture and nature visually. The winding landscape walkway provides viewing points from changing different angles. The guest room is embedded in the smoky cliff, however, the roof is like the first blooming flower bones, let the morning light quietly spill the room, feel the light changes in different time periods and dance with the light and shadow. Perhaps this is the closest dialogue with nature.

The project is located in the Xiaozhou Mountain Tourism Scenic Area in Lishui, Zhe jiang Province . The surrounding scenery is picturesque, with excellent terrace field landscape. It is required to expand a three-story steel structure building into a boutique hotel.

The beauty of rhythm from the set-back terrace fields are continued in the building form. By emphasizing the architectural form language of sense of order, the hotel merge with the terrace fields.

The World Architecture News Awards showcase the best international design in both current and future projects. Entries for the 2019 Awards are now open - for further information and to submit your entry please click here.
