Haitang Bay China Resort
Location: Haitang Bay, China
We approached the design and planning of this resort with the intention that it was going to be something completely unique, a project that was able to differentiate itself and stand out amongst the other major resorts in the Sanya and Yalong Bay area. At the same time we really wanted to celebrate the very special tropical environment in Haitang Bay through its architecture. To do this we created a project in which a dense tropical landscape is contrasted with an extensive lagoon that links all the elements of the resort. This contrast between a righteous landscape and tranquil pools provided a point of stimulation and excitement in the planning, architecture and experience of the resort.
