For this renovation project, the client wanted the new design to focus on the topic of traditional Chinese liquor.

In China, alcohol is made from cereal seeds, following a traditional liquor-making process that has been used over centuries. After a careful study of this process, we created a specific architectural scenography that gives people a singular sensory experience of the making of traditional Chinese liquor.

While re-organising the function of the building and the refurbishment of the interior and exterior spaces, we created a system that naturally links the different spaces through an artistic itinerary and guides the guests through the discovery of the different stages of liquor-making.


This project has been longlisted in the hotel and short-stay interior category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
