Entry Description

The design is inspired by sea creatures, which the Nanji Island is famous for, such as nudibranch. This “mollusk” lifts itself by its soft legs and stretches its tentacles to explore different directions. The public part of the hotel resembles a floating space above the sand. The sandy ground blends into the hotel to become an outdoor playground in the shadow cast by the building above. The building blends the boundaries between buildings and landscape by its organic form and flexible connectivity.Eco-friendly technologies have been installed to minimize the environment impacts.
