Tree capped mountains generously dotted with temples are the signature of the Luo Fu Shan mountain range in China. The valleys of the range are distinctly rugged, carved out by flowing rivers with natural springs that bubble up into warm water wells. The Sichuan Basin and adjacent areas were the cradle of civilizations dating back to the 15th century BC. Just north of the town of Sichuan is the ideal location for the Fushengyu Hotspring Resort, design by AIM Architecture.
The Fushengyu Hotspring Resort offers a breathtaking architectural ensemble of structures that create the perfect retreat for the body and spirit. A central building named MuCeCo has a striking vaulted roof, making it appear more like a grand tent that a great commercial building. The lobby is dramatic, opening up into the main space of the building which contains a museum, a wedding hall and a conference hall. It then flows out the opposite side revealing a large deck exposing the valley below, overlooking the spa and park.
From the beginning of the project, it was clear that the design of Fushengyu Hotspring resort would be driven by the ruggedly stunning scenery it is nestled within. The concept was shaped clearly on the land, and water that highlights this breathtaking region of Sichuan. As you progress through each step of bathing and relaxing in the warm pools of the spa, you get the opportunity of experiencing unique views of the range and valley from the different positions in the pools.
The guest villas of the Fushengyu Hotspring Resort are uniquely individual, but at the same time, create a unique uniformity of the resort. The timber structures feeling sturdy because of the rough timber, but constantly soothing. They evoke a sense of community and privacy for the guest experience.
Funshengyu Hotspring Resort has a total area of approximately 764,000 square feet of built space nicely arranged on 52 acres. It is a resort that measures its success to the quality of the human experience in nature. It is a getaway that combines nature with luxury and careful contemporary architecture.
