如恩设计研究室:“每到一座新的城市,旅行者都会重新发掘其未曾留意的过去。即便是在这片陌生的、未曾踏足的土地上,他也不会感到完全的异乡感。”—— 伊塔罗·卡尔维诺《看不见的城市》

Neri&Hu Design and Research Office: Arriving at each new city, the traveler finds again a past of his that he did not know he had: the foreignness of what you no longer are or no longer possess lies in wait for you in foreign, unpossessed places.—— Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities

The Sanya Wellness Retreat is located in Haitang Bay on Hainan Island, a popular resort destination in China. Neri&Hu’s design is inspired by the ancient Chinese walled city, elevated on a heavy plinth, it is usually surrounded by water for protection. As such the hotel is defined by two parts, the wooden dwelling comprising guest rooms perches atop a masonry base that contains all the public spaces below.

▽建筑外部 Exterior



Two L-shaped building volumes come together to form a water courtyard, the central feature from which all the hotel’s public amenities spread and emanate outwards.


▽内部水景庭院 Water courtyard



The lobby becomes a garden landscape with a floating lantern hovering above that allows a gentle light to filter in, and with the soft breeze that flows through, guests are immediately transported to a relaxed state of mind for appreciating the slow pace of island life. At the same time, the ceilings here are lowered and suppressed in order to simultaneously frame views outward to the azure seas beyond.

如恩试图在设计中融入这片土地的集体记忆、文化与自然元素,勾勒出海南的“场所精神”(genius loci)。

At every given opportunity, the design tries to embody the genius loci of Hainan, to blend elements from the island’s collective memory, culture and natural features.


▽餐饮区域 F&B areas




Tapping into local craftsmanship, the masonry walls which envelop the lower levels are clad with handmade clay bricks, while the fabrics and rugs are inspired by textile arts of the Li minority tribe. The technique of soaking and pressing bamboo is also employed as a building material, with woven rattan and yellow bronze accents to enhance the layers to the project.

For the guest rooms, each unit is conceived as an individual wooden hut that contains functional amenities such as the washrooms. In the negative space between the wooden boxes lies the sleeping and relaxing zones, including the ocean view balconies.


▽客房 Guest rooms



The alternating rhythm between solid and void, the angled walls and textured material expression, all contribute to a dynamic façade that is constantly playing with light and shadow. The corridor between the bedroom units becomes an urban streetscape, an alley where people can traverse and enjoy chance encounters, as such are the delights of being a traveler.


▽走道 Corridors



To complete the design, Neri&Hu was also responsible for the custom design of more than two hundred furniture pieces in public area and guest rooms, including the dining tables and chairs, lamps and among others.
