When the architect returns to the craftsman
When an architect returns to the role of a craftsman, and departs from electronic technology to rely on years of experience to physically and accurately control the building, the work can truly be unique. The boundary between sculpture and architecture is blurred again, and the distance between art and life is gradually getting closer. The architect’s pursuit of details is the true craftsman quality.
“Lan Shan Su” Boutique B&B Hotel is located in Fuxian Lake-Xiaowan B&B area. The design fully considers the interaction between the building and the terrain environment.
As a hotel landmark, the single “ant colony” of a small building plays the role of a VIP suite in function. At the same time, it breaks the traditional construction elements and reconstructs the old terrain in the entire site environment.
The designer hopes to break people’s inherent impression of functional rooms through the shaping of space, and to feel the power of nature and light in the interweaving of avant-garde space experience and daily living in a hotel.
The architectural shape is inspired by ant nests.
In a children’s painting with the theme of an ant nest, you can see the children’s imagination about the space function and transportation of the ant nest. Through the three-dimensional design and construction, the children’s interest in the eyes of ordinary people and the interweaving space of light and shadow in the designer’s view are merged into one, so that different The user group can feel the impact of spatial organization changes.
Nature’s potential for space construction is endless.
Absorbing natural elements is a call to human nature and wildness.
The power from nature is the most primitive, direct, and capable of touching people.
The site was originally an abandoned residential water cellar, located at the corner of the turning slope, sinking into the low terrain, but at the same time located at the entrance of the hotel.
The bold insertion of “ant nest” breaks the usual practice of green coverage, injects vitality into the negative space of the site, and becomes the hotel’s landmark and “welcome card”.
The curved surface can blur the junction of light and dark and guide light softly.
At the same time, the curved wall is covered with folds and texture, which naturally guides people through the space.
When the spatial volume of curved surface structure is given simple functions, the surrealistic space can softly stimulate the human senses.
The texture, light, and space are intertwined with each other, which can give people a soft touch.
The design process of ant’s nest is completely separated from computer modeling and depends on the architect’s years of accumulated experience and on-site control.
Only when architects have returned to the status of craftsmen can they truly feel the space through the entity and grasp the details of the carving.
No standard drawings were drawn in the early stage, and the architect “painted” on the spot.
