Architecture and interior design firm Studio A+ has revealed the design inspiration behind its recent boutique hotel and hot springs retreat project in Fengxi New City, Shanxi Province, China.

Founded by Min Wang in 2007, the studio’s vision was to create a property that represents a seamless fusion of city life and nature, providing guests with a peaceful and refined sanctuary.

The architectural approach to Mu Feng Yue Hot Spring Hotel also emphasises harmony with nature and thoughtful adaptation to the surroundings.

The complex is anchored by a sunken courtyard which gives the impression of the structure emerging organically from the land. This area is home to some of Mu Feng’s most striking design features including a Zen-inspired orange glass pavilion suspended over water, reflective pools and sloping water surfaces.

The hotel features six luxury guest rooms, each with an indoor pool, while eight outdoor pools with dedicated showers and lounges are also available to visitors, in addition to dining halls and tearooms specialising in local flavours.

Studio A+ chose to integrate gardens, water features, lawns and seasonal flower seas throughout Mu Feng to create an attractive urban oasis that keeps guests connected to nature.

Wang and her team explained that they opted to work with materials that complement the local surrounding’s natural hues, including rich earth-toned, timber-textured bare concrete.

Studio A+ worked with Xi'an Xilv Tourism Culture Development, Beijing Qinghua Tongheng Planning and Design Institute, Architecture Design and Research Institute of HIT and Ning Field Lighting Design to complete the project.

The firm was appointed by Shaanxi Fengxi New City Investment & Development to create the design concept for the hotel in August 2019, with construction finally wrapping up in August 2023.

Around the world, hot springs are having something of a moment, with renewed interest and investment ushering in a new era of social bathing. Click here to check out Spa Business’ feature exploring the myriad of new developments in Australia, New Zealand and the US.
