The Hotel stands in the Nanjing Tangshan Homo Erectus Relics Park.The location where it was built was originally an abandoned quarry pit with a special base landform. With the stones,exposed mountain rocks,and volcanic ash-like white cement distributed in the quarry pit,the tonality of these bases becomes the source of building tones.
The lighting concept is to use a minimal amount of light. Among the dense mountainous views and hazy moonlight, light from the hotel rooms shines towards the outside and into a courtyard lined with olive trees, creating a warm and natural atmosphere.
