Review: Songjiang Hotel

I'm sure we have seen this before. Clearly novel yet refreshingly sophisticated for its locality. A rigid grid of rooms wrap the quarry walls voluptuosly, suggesting the building was carved out of the formation. A glass waterfall that divides the composition of rooms and spaces introduces both light, and intrigue to the otherwise simplistic programme.

Firmitas 9
Backing a building against a natual wall, amazing.

Venustas 9
Beautiful, maybe for its novelty, but to me it is.

Utilitas 7
Simple usage, straight forward, no complaints.

Environmental 9
Turning a landfill into a usable development?
