The history of the hotel can be traced back to ancient civilization. It is a kind of shelter with a wide view and practicality while avoiding danger. We applied the concept into the project, It allows visitors to get a closer relationship with the nature. The building is raised to a height of 5 meters. The elevated building is light and interest and can have the widest view. At the same time, the height of the tree house is the same as the tree canopy. Looking out of the window, there are lush trees, giving people the experience of shuttling through the jungle.

Along the winding and floating plank roads, you can find the house in different positions. At the same time, the plank road is connected to the second floor of the inn, leading the people to the area of the room. On the plank road, we set up slides, slings and other entertainment facilities, which are connected to the ground garden in the vertical direction and convenient for children to play. At the same time, there is a leisure space for viewing, allowing people to watch and relax among the treetops. The overhead of the trestle bridge and hotel allows the ground floor to escape to the maximum, it can reduces the impact on the surroundings and also obtains a free panoramic garden. Under the shelter of surrounding buildings and trees, it is also cool and comfortable in summer.
