WTD: One must have heard of the sea in Sanya, but might have not seen mountains there.
去掉不必要，但不剥离韵味 Removing the unnecessary while retaining artistic charm
However, aranya finds another possibility besides the sea and beach in Sanya. Giant rugged mountains erect natural barriers between the valleys and noise outside. Away from bustling crowds and the hot sea wind, aranya finds for you a habitat of peace between the sea and mountains—Y Hotel.
▽阿那亚·三亚隐藏在一片静谧的山谷中 Anaya Sanya is tucked away in a quiet valley
Y Hotel, located in Shanbei District of Sanya, is a creamy white building concealed underground, with its roof nearly aligned with the ground of the residential area, which enables it to avoid disrupting the view of surrounding residential areas but become unique scenery in the community.

Removing the unnecessary while retaining artistic charm, Y Hotel eliminates ornamentation from landscape, architecture and the interior, and conveys a natural, restrained and simple sense of wabi-sabi, which is reduced and simplified but beautiful and quiet.

▽白千层庭院还原了山的质感 The white courtyard restores the texture of the mountain

▽建筑隐藏于地下，其屋顶成为社区的花园 Hidden underground, the roof becomes a community garden
沙生植物营造 Landscaping with Psammophytes
This is an introversive expression, as design needs continuous subtraction and spatial creation with the most restrained attitude. Original shapes and shadows of plants are the best narrators in the small space.
At the entrance to Y Hotel, there is an opening close to the ring road of the community, where one can look up to see mountains in a very short distance away. The design team made an attempt to restore it to a corner of a mountain, and create a unique connection between the opening and surrounding mountains by adding plants and rocks.
▽沙生植物类别，色彩，组合方式等都经过仔细推敲 Psammophyte species, colors, combinations and so on have been carefully examined
The team also tested the design of psammophytes in a large area for the first time. Psammophytes characterized by sturdy roots, resistance to sunburn and great vitality can adapt to the climate in Sanya. When combined together, psammophytic flora in desaturated and greyish blue tones is easy to show the premium grey texture desired in design, which also matches the tranquil and simple temperament of the space.
After determining the tone of flora, plant designers selected seedlings 8 times successively, and analyzed the way of their combination and relations of their shapes on rendering drawings and models. To get a comprehensive stereoscopic experience, designers also produced a 360°VR video of planting effects, which was given as technical disclosure to the contractor of psammophytes, with whom we finished planting vegetation in the grey color scheme we desired on site.
On the framework formed by kalanchoe beharensis and euphorbia stenoclada, euphorbia tirucalli and euphorbia xylophylloides compose green biomass at the middle level; a great variety of agave americana such as agaue americana, agave angustifolia and agave schidigera decorates landscape; crossostephium chinense and rosmarinus officinalis are paved on the bottom. The crisscross appearance of brushy greyish blue and green lumps of color can form a texture like oil painting.

The ground is paved with gravel on the bottom and decorated with stones, of which the contours are naturally weathered. Stones and vegetation, with their boundaries blurred, seem to be symbiotic, and perform a unique song of wilderness.

白千层光影 Melaleuca Leucadendron in Light and Shadow
The main courtyard is on the basement floor 1, sloping gently downwards from north to south. Looking outside in the building, one will see a framed picture of distant mountains. Then, how shall we paint it to ingeniously link the building and the interior and bring nature inside?
▽树叶小巧，树皮脱落的白千层，释放着原生魅力 Small leaves, bark off the white melaleuca, releasing the original charm
First, architectural design required that it would definitely not be a space to be stared at by guests on their arrival. Therefore, designers first eliminated conventional methods for creating scenes in landscape courtyards, such as planting a specially trimmed tall tree or placing a sturdy huge rock, which are too eye-catching and incompatible with the space. Designers hope that people will gain a certain perception rather than see a concrete object in this space.
▽从建筑内部向外看白千层庭院 The white courtyard is viewed from the inside of the building
If the space is compared to a movement, it is not a solo but a harmonious ensemble. When the sun rises above distant mountains, sunlight shines through ranges, forests and weeds on the ground swaying in the breeze, and casts shadows naturally into the space, which is the quiet and natural scene we desire. There is no absolute focus but scenery everywhere.
After determining the spatial texture, we began looking for a tree species fit for the spatial temperament. When seeing melaleuca Leucadendron, all designers agreed that no tree species is more suitable than it for the space. Its bark appears peeling in multiple layers, and its greyish green leaves are thin and long, to create a vigorous and forceful scene with the sky.
▽和谐宁静的场景画面 A scene of harmony and tranquility
Across the main courtyard, there are 19 trees of the species in total, which workers carried inside as cranes cannot enter and arranged first densely and then sparsely according to the degree of slope.
The bottom space is paved by combining gravel, low vegetation and rocks, the design of which also simulate nature. The tone of gravel in our eyes is a mixed grey, which is more like a natural variegated color rather than a pure color. Besides, boundaries between vegetation on the bottom and gravel should be blurred as a whole rather than in a split way. Rocks should be placed and inlaid as if they rolled down from mountains to the courtyard naturally…
▽依照坡度随机但刻意种植的白千层庭院 Random but deliberately planted white courtyard according to slope
In this way, the framed picture of nature is painted bit by bit, to finally create an experience of “seemingly in a mountain”, and unconsciously introduce a courtyard with landscape. The combination of scenery in the frame and distant mountains composes a simple scene of light and shadow, which seems to be its original look. It is the hardest task to simulate nature.
▽夜幕降临时，白千层和建筑、天空勾勒出美好画面 When night falls, the white layer and buildings, the sky outline a beautiful picture
自然静谧质地 Natural and Tranquil Texture
It needs deliberation step by step to design a swimming pool with a temperament of wabi-sabi perfectly in terms of dimensions, texture and spatial experience.
First, to pursue a simple and tranquil natural texture, material samples were made in 7/8 rounds, during which designers repeatedly compared them in color, texture, dimensions etc. Siam white slabs are selected for the bottom of the pool. They are a combination of white Italian, Greek and Sri Lankan marble, with crisscross but uncomplex lines, which can display a natural color transition in water and reflect the most beautiful change from light to deep blue. Meanwhile, they are also applicable to various conditions such as slightly acidic or alkaline conditions, with high stability.
▽远方的山，倒影在池水中，泛起一汪碧绿 The mountains in the distance, reflected in the water, a wang wang green
Materials on walls were also tested repeatedly and selected by observing the color changes of tested materials in different conditions such as dry and wet conditions, and their effects in light and shadow. Afterwards, they were mounted on walls by dry-hang.
▽设计师反复挑选石材，并多次打样观察 Designers repeatedly selected stone, and many times proofing observation
▽石材的使用与呈现 The use and presentation of stone
Each slab should also be in perfect dimensions, to fit in with the overall atmosphere without looking abrupt while expressing spatial tension. When the feel of blocks is so clear in each small zone of the swimming pool, two trees of plumeria rubra endow the space with a deep sense of power.
▽当阳光照射下来，泳水愈显纯净 When the sun shines down, the water becomes more pure
The landing process of Y Hotel was described as an “adventure journey”, with professional designers staying for more than 70 days in total. Including seedling selection, stone selection, as well as all psammophytes, trees and stones of the line, position, planting, are designers in the field to complete.
▽设计师指导入口沙生植物放线及摆放 Designers guide the routing and placement of entrance psammophytes
▽设计师守在现场，确保每棵树、每块石定点落位 Designers are on hand to make sure every tree and stone is in place
The eight times I searched for stones were full of adventures and twists and turns. The designer and party A went all over the large and small mines and quarries in Sanya, and even encountered a landslide and debris flow on the way for the third time (the friends were horrified).
Coincidentally, in the end, our stone was found in the site of the rock, quite “only fate body in the mountain” meaning. Each stone and each tree are positioned in a fixed position, according to the depth and orientation preset in the design, to solve the problems related to soil filling and slope, and shape the texture of space bit by bit.
▽设计师多次踏上选苗、寻石之路，甚至险遇泥石流 Designers repeatedly set foot on the selection of seedlings, looking for stone road, and even risk the debris flow
Under the concerted efforts of professionals in multiple fields, it is gratifying to see the final effect of the space. It refreshes the beauty of Sanya in the minds of people, keeping a certain distance from hustle and bustle but not far away. It enables owners, who follow aranya from north to south and purchase properties in Sanya, to find such a place, where they can relax themselves and gain spiritual comfort, and to believe that “life can be more beautiful” again.
