Atrchitects Vague Edge reveal final structure for Pingjiang Homey Wild Luxury Hotel

Architects Vague Edge have revealed the third and final phase of the Pingjiang Homey Wild Luxury Hotel in China. The hotel has been built on three sites, ranging over mountainous terrain.

The newly-completed building – the Dinghui – covers an area of 1,190sq m (12,800sq ft), and was designed to fit the unusual site on which it sits.

The structure is a 45m- (148ft) long, narrow block that curves with the elongated shape of the mountain. The site level drops about 4.8m (15.7ft) from end-to-end.

Spacious bedrooms look out across mountainous terrain, while guests can also take in the views from a 122m (400ft), rooftop infinity pool.

Around 35m (115ft) further down the mountain, on a smaller hilltop site is the second building – Yanshang – a smaller residence whose rooms are laid out around a central hall and tucked under the building’s eaves.

The free-curved oval shape of the structure makes the shape of each room slightly different.

On the roof is a pool, as well as skylights that allow light into the building. There's also a viewing platform and breakfast room.

The first building, located in the valley, is the Ziyahui events space. Shaped like a leaf, Ziyahui is a wooden pavilion designed to be used for wedding ceremonies, performances, bonfire evenings and other activities.

A central stage is surrounded by seating, with toilets and dressing rooms hidden underneath the structure to maintain the integrity of its design. A skylight provides natural light and ventilation, while the use of natural materials for the construction creates a connection between architecture and nature.

The Pingjiang Homey Wild Luxury Hotel is located in Baimao Village, Pingjiang County, in China’s Hunan Province. Construction was completed in June 2019, but an opening date has yet to be confirmed.
