‘Located on a natural hillside, the building and its functions are spread out in one continues ribbon, which gently follows the declination of the hill.’
The design for the 15.000sqm Ribbon Hotel in Xiangyang is heavily inspired by its surrounding landscape. The ribbon, which defines the design, inhabits and encloses all necessary functions of a hotel.
Entering the lobby at the upper part of the hill, visitors are guided further down the hill to the rooms, restaurant, bar, and spa area. The ribbon ends at a little pond, where the hotel’s indoor pool and lake are visually connected.
