Tangshan Hantian

The project fully uses the original terrain and natural resources to create a unique space. The site is located with the Tangshan Mountain in the north. Therefore, the more significant buildings are arranged on the southeast side of the terrain, while the smaller buildings are on the northwest side.

The landscape planning is coherent, balanced, and integrated. The design respects the original layout of the site, and the landscape on the axis connects various activity spaces. The semi-open area and pedestrian roads are grouped with private courtyards and suites. The flexible enclosed building volume forms a rich street interface, which enhances the sense of vacation belonging.
