KINMEN RESORT


Porject Type: Hospitality

Location: Kinmen, China

Size: 1,800,000 SF

Status: Proposal


The Kinmen Resort is located at one of the few white sand beachfronts on Kinmen Island. The wings of double-loaded hotel towers tilt towards the ocean at about 20 degrees, providing all 800 living units with an ocean view. Upon entering the resort, the main axis through the gardens branch off to paths leading to hotel amenities of retails, conference centers, multi-purpose halls, restaurants, spas, and gyms. A difference of 10 meters in elevation became an opportunity to create a ‘waterfall’ experience, which brings the visitors trickle down from the “landside” to the “waterside”.
