Studio Ideas and Inspiration

Songjiang Hotel, Songjiang, Shanghai, China

This stunning design is going to be a five-star resort hotel set within a beautiful water-filled quarry in the Songjiang district close to Shanghai in China. The way this hotel is integrated with the landscape is amazing. I like the waterfall is falling through the middle of the building. Martin Jochman, who led the design team, says, “We drew our inspiration from the quarry setting itself, adopting the image of a green hill cascading down the natural rock face as a series of terraced landscaped hanging gardens. In the centre, we have created a transparent glass ‘waterfall’ from a central vertical circulation atrium connecting the quarry base with the ground level. This replicates the natural waterfalls on the existing quarry face.”
