Text description provided by the architects. A crumbling state-owned enterprise training center is being renovated into an oriental-style hotel on the main road of Mount Wuyi Resort in China’s Fujian Province. The commissioned designer said that “Mount Wuyi has an important status in Chinese history and culture, and we believe in this deep connection when we first entered this long abandoned courtyard.”

The hotel building area covers 8,000 m2 and the public space of landscape architecture is 7,000 m2. The renovated hotel offers more than 120 rooms in 12 room types. The spirit of “seclusion and tea culture” of Mount Wuyi is refined and revamped in the language of design. In addition, local and natural elements are applied to create a courtyard space with an oriental aesthetic with a strong characteristic of the tea culture of Mount Wuyi.

Intensive study of the contents of “Reclusion, Buddhism and Tea Culture” becomes the keywords of the treatment with architectural layout, architectural form design, landscaping and interior decoration. The interpretation of “seclusion, Buddhism” in this case is summed up as “poetic charm, drinking tea and speaking Dao, pleasant weather and great prospects, and awakening to the truth”. The design intends to merge Chinese tea culture with Buddhism’s theory of aesthetic life achieving YUE (happiness) in spaces of comfort, relaxation and enjoyment.

The exterior architectural design retains the Anhui building style of white walls and gray tiles. The landscape architecture elements such as the hall, wall, hallway, terrace and courtyard are connected with natural stones, water, bamboo and wood to form a spatial pattern. The private space is enclosed by a wall and the hallway provides shelter and a perfect point for visitors enjoying a pleasant scene, especially in the rain. Recycled wood materials from abandoned houses are reused, keeping the memory of the past alive and achieving low-carbon construction. Over 100 old trees at the site are conserved for protection and low impact development.

Tea culture is broken down into VI hotel design, construction, decoration and management, and service delivery. Visitors can see, smell, listen, smell, taste and become aware of the expression of tea culture in hotel spaces. This production of culture and lifestyle combined with the mild climate of Mount Wuyi gives the hotel a warm atmosphere both inside and out, forming a bright, comfortable and healthy residential area. The interior decoration of each room has its own merits and characteristics and the tea elements are appropriately displayed there.
