The mixed-use development consists of a boutique hotel, residential apartments, offices, retail, parks, and parking. The site is located on a hill within a forest in Taiping, approx. 30km from Kunming, China. Vernacular Chinese elements inspire the project. The design is based on the idea to connect the surrounding forest with parks within the site conceived as layered fields, taking inspiration from Chinese rice fields. The layered landscape surrounds the ellipse-formed towers to create a homogeneous relationship.
