Entry Description

The Spring Legend is located at a mountainous region at Conghua in Guangzhou, next to Liuxi River, Shimen and Tianhu Forest Park. Driving on the two-kilometer-long private road leading to villas area keeps you away from the bustling crowd of the city. Spreading across 57,000㎡, the whole project is themed with leisure vacation, while integrating the hot springs into architecture. The hotel is the result of meticulous research and careful planning--many field visits were conducted to understand the geographical characteristics of the area and experts were engaged to see how the development can restore the natural environment while establishing an intra-regional self-balancing ecosystem. Modern and simple, with a Chinese touch, the architectural design is blends in with its surroundings. The effort to recycle solar energy and rain, the large doors and windows are to allow fresh air, great views and optimal daylight to play an important part in the project.
