VUE Hotel in Beijing, China by Ministry of Design

Sunday, November 5th, 2017

Article source: Ministry of Design

The VUE Hotel brand exemplifies the new wave of locally-rooted boutique hospitality experiences, a global cultural phenomenon now finding roots in China. “VUE” in French means “view” or “a way to see” and VUE hotels aspire to present a fresh way of “seeing” hospitality design and experiences. VUE’s DNA upends conventional Chinese notions of hospitality and is defined by 4 core pillars: 1. Encourages Socialising; 2. Transcendence of culture; 3. Delightful & Whimsical; 4. Relaxed & Inviting.

Friday, November 3rd, 2017

Article source: Xiamen Fancy Design & Decoration Co., Ltd.

Located in a zone of old factories, Yaoyue Restaurant was once an unused terrace. Different from the noisy city outside, the designer wants to integrate nature and industry style together and creates a “floating green island in the city”.

The planar graph of the restaurant looks like the letter L, which enables the users to see different views when they change their steps. The whole space can be divided into three kinds of spaces: the outdoor space, the public space and the compartments.

Life is a kind of experience.

There are two kinds of people who have rich experiences. One prefers addition, this kind of people have childlike innocence and great attachment to objects. Each of their collection stands for a memory and a mood. The more the collection they have, the more fulfilling and productive life they live. The other one prefers subtraction, with the increase of experience, they become more gentle to people, but stricter to themselves. Knowledge, principles and tastes, all have established stable and clear boundaries through the years.
