Shanthi Boutique Hotel is a project designed by JIAKUN ARCHITECTS and CSD DESIGN An Idyllic Existence in the Appropriate Proximity to the Nature and a Clustered Human Settlement of a Quiet Village. Design Adds Another Dimension to the Nature of History. Photography by Wang Ting.
In 2013, Chinese National Geographic hailed Songyang, a county to the southeast of the province of Zhejiang as “the last hidden gem south of the Yangtze River”. Here, more than a hundred ancient villages hide on the far side of mountain roads and undulating cliffs. Perhaps due to the difficult access to the region, it remains close to nature and far away from the bustle of the city.
However, once visitors arrive on-site, time and space are experienced differently; aged trees, ancient temples, old houses, all provide the most unique cultural atmosphere, authenticity sealed away from public view, worthy of being praised as “an example of the ancient Chinese county”.
In the past seven years, this landscape of nature and culture has welcomed new life in the form of fresh design interpretations, gradually becoming a utopia for designers. Through a precise approach reminiscent of the most skilled acupuncture techniques, Songyang comprises a charming collection of diverse elements ranging from mountain scenery to primitive ancient villages and modern architectural masterpieces.
Three years ago, JIAKUN ARCHITECTS, led by principle architect Liu Jiakun, started the overall design of Songyang Wenli Community Center, including architecture, interior and landscape. In the design phase of Shanthi Boutique hotel at the center of Songyang City, Jiakun invited Zhang Can, who is the principal designer of CSD DESIGN, to join the team and deepen the interior deisgn of the Shanthi.
After strolling along Qingyun road, across the Confucian Temple, and through the courtyard on the south side of the old district’s committee building, visitors arrive at the “Small Hall” of the Shanthi Boutique Hotel. A multitude of unrestrained scenes from life, history and nature manifests here, masterfully curated inside its courtyard.
