Hotel Development {Phase 1 & 2} al Chuen Lung / Tsuen Wan, New Territories, Hong Kong

Hotel Development
Influenced by the surrounding environment of lush greenery and hillside scenery, the proposed hotel development has been designed as a first-class resort, much like a holiday house. It consists of three separate building blocks, which individually offer distinct characters and features, and yet have been designed in a rhythmic manner that help shape the whole development.

This hotel development provides a relaxing and peaceful getaway/holiday setting, ideal for family and friends. The low-rise project offers naturally ventilated houses that provide large balconies and open decks overlooking private and central swimming pools. In order to embrace the idea of a 'resort holiday house', the materials selected are basic, natural and eco-friendly, such as recycled timber, natural stone, etc. To break up the massive and bulky building forms caused by constraints of the narrow site, a repetitive use of large openings and balconies is introduced into the design.
Considering that the proposed development is located at a steep hillside with a narrow and rectilinear area, one of the major green design considerations is to minimise site formation work with less excavation and fill work to provide a more energy- and labour-friendly approach. Surrounding trees and vegetation are to be retained as much as possible in order to facilitate the natural beauty of the site.
