Aoxin Holiday (Hotel) by Shaun Lee
2019 - 2020, Platinum A' Interior Space and Exhibition Design Award Winner
AOXIN Holiday Hotel is located in Luzhou City, Sichuan Province, a city well known for its wine and regarding wine culture as its root. The hotel is inspired by the wine hiding cave (namely a cave used to store liquor) in Luzhou, a place that evokes a strong desire to explore.
The design of the hotel is an extension and evolution of local culture. As the mystery of natural cave arouses curiosity, the lobby is a reconstruction of natural cave amongst which places a series of unconnected hollow stones. The unknown and the unpredictable inside the stones is released by excavating internal stone, forming a private and semi-invisible surroundings, which creates a continuous experience of opening and enclosing through the interior of the stone and the gap between the stone.
Design Challenges
The cave construction is complex with strict requirement on the accuracy of each procedure. First the designer built virtual model and split into curved surfaces, then the manufacturer completed the model using GRG and cut it into several modules, which were sent to the scene for splicing, finally steel frame was built tosuspend and fix the fragments. To pave mosaic in the inner wall of the cave, mosaic stitching is squeezed due to area shrinkage. The designer reversed deformation seam, increased the number of segments horizontally and set the starting point for each one, forming a order.
Production Technology
From an engineering point of view, the Aoxin Holiday Hotel by Shaun Lee is a good example of a highly-developed project.
