This project is a pride and confidence for the architect and Sian’d’sain team to design the hotel and resort in China. The owner wanted a resort that has a strong tradition, which set out from the context of local architecture and location. In addition, the owner wants a high quality, but still on the simplicity line.
This building concept is based on Tri Hita Karana and the Kala Patra village in Bali. Tri Hita Karana (three harmonious relationships), meaning the relationship between human with the creator, relationship with fellow human beings, and relationship between human with the environment. While Kala Patra village concept (Balinese term) has a meaning, village = place, Kala = time, and Patra = space or condition. Inspired from the philosophy, the architect started brainstorming feedback strategy till presentation to use a miniature model when the owner and his entourage come from China to Bali. If you are planning a trip to Bali, search for hotels in Bali on Expedia.
