DESIGN NAME:
Villafound Jade Hotel Lijiang

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Lodge, Travel

INSPIRATION:
Yuhu Village - also called YuLuKen in Naxi Language - is on the foot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, about 10 kilometers from downtown Lijiang. Villafound Jade Hotel Lijiang is right close to the so-called ‘rock village’ location where the houses were made of a unique stone called monkey head by Naxi people. The stone is comprised of a substance between stone and mud. With the reflection of the stone on the snow mountain, houses made of monkey head look even more natural and beautiful.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Villafound Jade is composed of 13 detached villas, including a folk custom museum, a restaurant with tea bar, and the rest is lodging areas. In term of architecture intervention, the architect applied Naxi residence elements largely and maintained the rustic beauty of Naxi traditional dwellings, meanwhile, modern design method was used to meet the demand of living comfort for contemporary people, purposing to create a perfect and balanced luxury retreat.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This is a refurbished project as a hotel for visitors to lodge with stunning view of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and natural sightseeing in Yuhu Village. The project was made of various materials which come from the local, such as monkey stone and renovated pine wood. This unique hotel aims to combine the unsophisticated life there with the nature.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Domestic water for the hotel comes from the melted water streaming down from the towering ice-capped mountain. The flowing water in not only used for landscaping, but also for drinking water. But snow water from the mountain contains highly rich minerals and can’t be used for drinking, thus, filter system was applied across the hotel.

CHALLENGE:
The lodging area of this hotel is renovated from old civic residences. The biggest challenge is how to connect them by design without drawing any damage to the existing buildings. Secondly, the interior floor can not be polished because of floor heating system. So the architect managed to use epoxy resin instead of concrete flooring.
