XY Yunlu Hotel
by Atelier Liu Yuyang

Shortlisted for hospitality building of the year at Dezeen Awards 2019, XY Yunlu Hotel is a boutique eco-resort by Atelier Liu Yuyang.

Nestled within a village between Guilin and Yangshuo among the rocky pinnacles of China's Yangshuo County, the site consists of five renovated disused farm houses that have been renovated into 23 guest rooms and a restaurant. The new building accommodating the all-day restaurant for guests was designed to reflect the forms and materials of the vernacular architecture. With villagers still living nearby, Atelier Liu Yuyang wanted to respect the character of the existing village and take a sensitive approach to the local culture.
