2 / 11 existing structure

This renovation project aims to transform a large empty building, originally planned to host several restaurants, into a boutique hotel with 100 bedrooms and several public services.
The new program imposed important modifications to the facade, the creation of a swimming pool that occupies a large part of the courtyard and the addition of new volumes on the higher levels.

These punctual interventions unfortunately increased the original volumetric fragmentation of the structure. The construction of a layer of blades that partially wraps the old fa?ade and bends into a fluid continuous roof creates a coherent envelope and a totally new identity for the building.

The blades also provide shading, while allowing natural ventilation for the rooms and the higher terraces, responding to the characteristics of the tropical climate of Guilin. Furthermore, the interstitial space between the fa?ade and the new skin gave the opportunity to create a series of public and private terraces with good views towards the amazing landscape of the region.

這個百葉層同時具備調節微氣候的功能。它在遮陽的同時允許建筑的自然通風,適應桂林亞熱帶氣候日照強烈的特點。同時,舊有立面與新表皮之間的半圍合空間,形成半公共半私密的空間體驗, 也為這一區域注入新的景觀活力元素。
