Muh Shoou Xixi Hotel by Shawn Cheung - GOA

Home > Winners > #88328


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Muh Shoou Xixi

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Hotel

INSPIRATION:
Muh Shoou Xixi originally means the last fruit left by farmers on the tree with the special intention of sharing it with animals in nature so as to pray for the harvest of the coming year. That's just where the name of Muh Shoou Xixi comes. The architect attempts to present the natural beauty of Xixi Wetland - coldness, quietness, uniqueness, wildness and seclusion - to visitors through the design and evoke the resonance between human and the primitive nature through the architecture.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project boasts typical wetland ecology with water path, land route as well as native vegetation surrounding. There are many kinds of plants surrounding the hotel, most of them are persimmon trees, among which the oldest tree is 100-year-old. The building team recorded root elevation, species and names of all trees with DBH of 10 cm one by one, and "weaved" the building into the environment so as to adapt to the layout of the original vegetation.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The architect attempts to present the natural beauty of Xixi Wetland - coldness, quietness, uniqueness, wildness and seclusion - to visitors through the design and evoke the resonance between human and the primitive nature through the architecture.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started design in 2015 and finished in 2018.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The banquet hall with plentiful lights is surrounded by 270 ° French window, and its indoor space covering an area of 300 ㎡ seamless blend with outdoor natural forests, lawns and waterside terrace. It would be a unique experience to hold a banquet, clothing show, auto show or any other activities in a such a forest-like place. The design of water route is based on the original land-form of the wetland, enabling people who are accustomed to land transporting to travel along the ancient waterway to the hotel. In the water waves stirred by the oars, people could appreciate the beauty of Xixi Wetland from a different perspective.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
GFA: 7000 square meters

TAGS:
integrate nature into design and reconstructing landscape

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The hotel is renovated from five old buildings originally on this site. The challenge to architects is how to meet the needs of modern hotels in an ecologically optimal way. After making a large number of on-site investigations, architects completed the structural transformation and integrated system layout with extremely minimal intervention, so that the building could be connected with surrounding forest and water system smoothly.
