Fengyuan China Resort
Location - Fushun, China
Architects Pacific were commissioned to do the masterplanning and architecture of a 5 star resort, spa and villa development in northern China. This particular project was a challenge because while the client wanted a modern and sophisticated development, he also wanted it to retain aspects of Dong Bay traditional architecture in the main buildings. We visited many of the ancient temples in the area and felt that this might be achieved in a reinterpretation of the roofing form, where its proportions would match the plinth and pillars below. While this is the approach we adopted for the main hotel, the spa and the villas were to be kept much more contemporary and light in their appearance and style.
