Ningbo Xiangshan Resort

Ningbo, China

Immersed in the Songlan Mountains of Xiangshan, this development encompasses a Hilton resort hotel, VIP villas, an international conference center and yacht club. Garden architecture, an important part of the Chinese landscape, serves as the core inspiration for the complex’s design. Stemming from the Chinese concept “derived from the natural and beyond the natural,” the landscape binds scenery and emotion, amidst the organic overlay of mountain, water and vegetation. Key design elements include curves, a seemingly random and varied layout, elegant style, and permeability and transparency, all integrating landscape and structure to ecologically create the ultimate resort experience.
