The third phase of the Pingjiang Homey Wild Luxury Hotel in China has been built on top of a mountain overlooking the forest landscape that surrounds it and the other hotel buildings below.

Within the building, which was designed by Vague Edge, spacious bedrooms and living spaces look out across the surrounding mountainous terrain, while, at the other end of the site, guests can take in the views from a 122m (400ft) infinity pool.

The Dinghui building covers an area of 1,190sq m (12,800sq ft), but was designed to fit the unusual site on which it is built. The structure is a 45m (148ft) long, narrow block that curves with the elongated shape of the mountain and the site level drops about 4.8m (15.7ft) from end-to-end.

Dinghui is the part of the hotel to have been built. Around 35m (115ft) lower, on a smaller hilltop site is the Yanshang: a smaller residence whose rooms are laid out around a central hall and hidden under the building’s eaves. The free-curved oval shape of the structure makes the shape of each room slightly different.

On the roof, there is a pool, as well as skylights that allow light into the building. There is also a viewing platform and a small adjacent breakfast room.

The third element of the hotel, located in a valley, is the Ziyahui events space. Shaped like a peach or a leaf, Ziyahui is a wooden shelter or pavilion that can be used for wedding ceremonies, small performances, bonfire evenings and other activities.

A central stage area is surrounded by seating, with toilets and dressing rooms hidden underneath the structure to maintain the integrity of its design. A skylight at the top provides natural light and ventilation, while the use of natural materials for the construction adds a sense of integration between architecture and nature.

The Pingjiang Homey Wild Luxury Hotel is located in Baimao Village, Pingjiang County, in China’s Hunan Province. Construction was completed in June 2019, but a date for opening has yet to be confirmed.
