Airland Hotel is a small-scale resort hotel. As it was a renovation project, the total budget was quite challenging. Designers made the best use of the existing space, which is shaped by the curvy architecture. The complicated design was abandoned; instead, natural landscape and sunlight are introduced into interior while keeping the openness and ventilation of the atrium and its surrounding. The design intent was to achieve a pure, natural and romantic ambience that offers relaxing and pleasant experiences with minimum budget.
It's originally a sales centre for property. The designer started from a different angle instead of conservative conduction goes that make a prominent landmark in the local. The designer follows the principle that the interior is part of the architecture, and the whole design focus on the green and sustainability.
