An unsophisticated scene is needed to stage a gentle encounter. How to paddle a mood to allow you to feel shuttle-like light and shadow? How to weave a wave of forest to allow you to purposely sway with wind? How to brush the outline of water expressions to allow you to experience the lingering breath freely, as ripples but indescribable.
Qiandao Lake is a blessed place surrounded by myriad mountains. In the past few years, the developer has a crush at this place, and the buildings of this project – 12 soho-style villas designed by German GMP, have already been completed two years ago. However, by cherishing this landscape, the develop is very careful about this investment. Till the beginning of 2014, the developer finally decided to build a self-managed boutique resort hotel here after multiple considerations, which unveils the designer’s fate with it.

The hotel is located at an intersection of the city, an intersection of interior and exterior, tradition and modernism. the features and characteristics of the city were incorporated into the design. the idea was to segment a compact structure floor by floor in order to let enough light in. courtyards of light become an element that is played with. the floors were shifted horizontally, so as to achieve an open and yet compact structure. space is split up into drawers; mirroring the old town’s vertical sectors, here horizontally. the façade is unbroken – solely two windows to the city offer a glimpse of the space on the interior, which is projected outwards, generating public space. the protrusions appear to be oriels, eversions of the façade. light comes in through the courtyards, halls, rooms, and open spaces; well-lit intimacy.

A large rooted tree sets the ground for an expansion project to a centennial home.
A low-impact intervention
Located in the Plateau Mont-Royal, a centennial home welcomes a family who wish to breathe new life into their space and establish a new dialogue with its surrounding environment. With a vision to respect the home’s original character and preserve the large poplar rooted in the backyard, Microclimat designed a low-impact intervention for an addition that would occupy a small portion of the garden. This new space would blossom from the home through two new large openings in the existing brick wall.

The first time I visited this property and took in the desert and the diaphanous, clear water running along a horizontal line in the background, I felt the enormous drive of water under a scorching sun. This piece of land, located in the middle of a coastline dotted with “All Inclusives,” would have to be transformed into a box that contained its own sea –practically its own air– given the happy circumstance that the universe had created a desert joined to the sea along a horizontal line. It was the purest, most minimalist landscape a horizon could have drawn. On either side, this dreamlike scenery collided with what humans consider to be aesthetic and build and baptize as architecture. I wanted to draw my own version, apart from the rest.
