A6 Hotel – IIDA Award 2020


Project Name: A6 Hotle

Project location: Zhangjiajie, Hunan

Spatial Attributes: The Inn Boutique
Creative Design: Sun Jialiang

The A6 boutique Inn of the ancient city of Dayong is located in the west of the residential area of Zhangjiajie, Hunan Province, covering an area of 870 square meters and a building area of 1560 square meters. It is a high-end experience inn.


Based on the relationship between heaven, earth and man in Zhangjiajie, the designer divides the vertical direction of the building into three parts:
Day: Chinese people have been full of reverence and yearning for the sky since ancient times. Most buildings are open to the sky in the form of courtyards. Therefore, the upper part of A6 is designed as a single building settlement relying on the platform, and the dark gray sloping roof complements the ancient city.
Land: the relationship between Zhangjiajie architecture and land can draw on the unique form of stilts. Therefore, the structural features and materials of the former are abstracted in the middle of A6, which pays homage to the local cultural tradition, and creates a different living experience through the linear private courtyard camp.
Person: in the ancient city, A6 is at the junction of the residential area and Anlu, and it is also an important node of the tourist line. Therefore, the bottom of A6 is overhead, providing places for tourists to stay and rest, and also expressing the interaction between the ancient city and people, buildings and people.
As a modern building in the ancient city, the design hopes that A6 Inn can not only integrate in the form of the historical atmosphere created by the traditional building tile roof and green brick wall, but also innovate in the living experience to supplement the rich living needs of tourists.

Interior space design description Redundant modeling and decoration are easy to bring a sense of chaos to the space, and the layout loses the simple and flexible meaning, which will cause a sense of depression to the vision. The significance of blank space is to easily transfer people's vision to the elements surrounded by blank space. The design needs to be blank, and the space is also wide. So as to highlight the aesthetic value of the whole space.
The log shows the natural texture and texture, combined with the simple warm color, and emphasizes the comfortable feeling in the large-scale exhibition. And its perfect match is to leave blank.
Log + blank, in the square inch between the heaven and earth.
