KNOW MORE ABOUT THE DESIGNERS:
Meijie.Xiuju（Yun Lake Courtyard Resort) is located in Yixing City, Jiangsu Province, on a hillside adjacent to the bank of Yun Lake. The building was originally a spare enclosed office building. Due to its unique location adjacent to the scenic spot, the owners wanted to transform it into a boutique resort hotel in order to promote the local tourism industry. Studio DOTCOF accepted the commission and carried out the renovation design.
During the initial site survey, the design team found that there were very beautiful and natural conditions around the building, not only lake scenery and mountain views in the distance, but also lush trees and plants nearby. However, the space of the original building is relatively closed, leaving it out of sync with the outdoor landscape.
In order to allow guests to experience more of the landscape and nature, and to have more relaxed physical and mental experiences, the designer made a special spatial treatment at the interface between the interior space and the outdoor landscape.
