1 缘起,与山水为伴 | Prologue: The Companionship of Landscape


Chongzuo, a small town hidden at the border of China and Vietnam, is a perfect destination to escape the hustle-and-bustle of the outside world. Green bamboos flourish along riverbanks, single-log bridges lay across rivers, and farmhouses integrate perfectly with the breathtaking landscape. In the distance, you can see rice ears dancing in the wind, farmers hoeing, and shepherd boys splashing about by the water. A seemingly endless array of pleasant sights and sounds brings comfort and ease to one’s soul. Such lively and enchanting scenery represents the idyllic lifestyle of South China.With mountains and rivers right by your side, in the natural landscape and beauty of Chongzuo, you will find supreme joy in life. You can embark on a slow-paced stroll to fully appreciate the quiet majesty of the farmland and further discover the hidden beauty of this border town.


▽项目周边环境 Project Surroundings




Located in Mingshi Village, Daxin County, Chongzuo City, LUX* Chongzuo is nestled on the bank of the meandering Mingshi River, boasting a landscape of unique and splendid karst topography. As the first resort project of LUX* Resorts & Hotels in China, it has clinched 27 awards in the hotel industry and 8 design awards home and abroad since launching.

2 建筑,是人与自然沟通的媒介 | Architecture: The Medium Between Man and Nature


After thoroughly considering the natural landscape conditions around the site, this project followed a design principle of “nature first” and the concepts of “multum in parvo” and “less is more”, with a special focus on the harmony and communion between architecture and Mother Nature.


▽总平面图 General Floor Plan




We make full use of the stunning surroundings and the resort’s unique location of being positioned right beside mountains. In the planning stage, we tried to maximize the width and depth of resort buildings while avoiding being pressed too close to the mountains. We also adopted special spatial techniques to connect different spaces while maintaining consistency in style and tone. By using techniques like enframing scenes, opposite scenes, and view borrowing, we tactfully arranged the orientation of the buildings so that guests can enjoy colorful sunglow and idyllic scenery to the utmost. The buildings humbly merge with their natural surroundings, which provide a picturesque backdrop from any angle.


▽项目模型 Project Model




The design merges harmoniously with the natural environment, fully respecting the local topography and vegetation. Different layers of space are structured in a way in which guests can enjoy the scenery from different angles: from a plantain tree-decorated boardwalk to an elevated hall, ascending to a platform and lobby on the second floor, and finally reaching an elevated walkway. Every step taken affords a fresh, new view. Native vegetation can be seen all around, integrating the landscape with the architecture. Everything is designed to bring guests a marvelous experience while moving through the different spaces.

3 开放,打破常规空间定义 | Open Space: Shattering the Conventional Definition


In such an open environment, we put more emphasis on the visual effects from the inside out. Every space – from the lobby and restaurant to the guest rooms and bathrooms – is a “painting of the landscape enframed by the architecture”, allowing guests who are weary from the commotion of city life to discover a carefree world they can call their own.


▽大堂景观 Lobby View




Enclosed on three sides, the semi-open lobby has one side wide open, facing the mountains and col in the south and with hills snuggling up on the left and right. From afar, the resort with mountains in the background appears as a wide spreading landscape. The heated sunken waterscape seating areas in the lobby bar offer a front-row seat to admiring the majestic mountains and landscape. Verdant mountains stand in the distance and a misty waterscape lingers nearby. A school of egrets sometimes flies in a line across the floating clouds and mists, like a vivid landscape painting that softly unfolds before your eyes. Standing here – in the midst of activity and tranquility – lets you feel heaven and earth, see mountains and rivers, and, most importantly, find your true self.

▽大堂室内 Inside the Lobby




The 35-meter-long infinity pool and terraced landscape blend perfectly with the river outside, breaking down the structural boundaries between architecture and nature. The longer side of the pool faces the sunset, offering an unobstructed and amazing view. The twinkle lights at the bottom of the pool simulate the reflection of a starry night sky.


▽无边泳池 Infinity Pool




Meeting rooms, a gym, an outdoor bar, restaurants, and other public functional areas on the first floor aren’t rigidly divided. Instead, they are a series of open and flexible spaces, allowing the guests to enjoy more freely the changing of day and night, the lush trees, fresh air, and other gifts from nature.

4 在地,探索场景构建的表达 | Localization: Explore Expressions of Scene Construction



In this God-given natural environment, we pursue the goal of empowering architecture and the landscape with local culture, employing different expressions and techniques to create an immersive experience and sense of occasion.

The Heiyizhuang ethnic group, whose favorite color is black and wears black clothes daily, resides near the project location. Most of their local dwellings are built with rock and wood, using a stilt house structure. At the entrance of the resorts, we turned locally collected waste rock and wood into a rustic greeting area, surprising guests upon first arrival and celebrating the Zhuang ethnic culture.

▽迎客区 Greeting Area


▽原生树木与平台 Second Floor Platform



Similarly, the main structures in the resort draw on the distinctive elements of the traditional stilted building style of the Zhuang ethnic group to present a suspended and elevated architectural form. Without superfluous decorations, the majority of walls are made with rock and fair-faced concrete, highlighting the color and texture of the material itself. This way, the boundary between the interior and exterior spaces is obfuscated to amplify the beauty of simplicity, style, and elegance.


▽室内空间 The Interior Space




The area is rich in vegetation resources. Local primitive landscape elements and materials were used extensively in the design to reflect the natural and cultural landscape, resulting in the creation of an idyllic, pristine space while preserving the local habitat and ecosystem.

We found sedimentary rocks in the fields and used them as landscape rocks in the resort. Rice, calla lily, Indian taro, and other native plants were planted along the riverside. For ground cover plants, we used lacy tree philodendron, hottentot fern, packing leaf, and plumed cockscomb, among others. Trees and shrubs used are mainly camphorwood, formosan gum, kapok, banana, wampee, and hackberry. We also used vine plants such as Boston ivy to decorate walls, poles, and railings. These all work together to foster a diverse plant ecosystem, forming a truly rural and pure environment.

5 野奢,慢旅生活的艺术品格 | Rustic Luxury: The Artistry of the Slow-Paced Travel Life


Towering karst mountains, the winding Mingshi River, and verdant countryside scenery are bundled together – a kind of “luxury package” that’s hard to come by in the city. In the presence of such an amazing environment, a more rustic and seclusive design offers an even more extravagant experience.


▽室外景色 Outdoor view




The resort boasts 56 suites and villas that come in 17 room types, all of which give an extraordinary view of the landscape and varied luxurious experiences. A large number of natural rocks in irregular shapes were used in building the interior space, together with wooden furniture, rattan lightings, and exquisite brass components, emitting a feeling of being in a natural environment. The architecture and interior design work together to deliver a minimalist and rustic luxury style, achieving unity of architecture, landscape, and interior design.


▽客房 Guest Rooms



Every guest room is equipped with a spacious balcony and large floor-to-ceiling glass window, which acts as a “frame” that captures the surrounding karst landscape. By using a balanced application of void and solid, the guest rooms blend into nature seamlessly. Each room’s view is undisturbed by those of the other rooms, affording guests private and exclusive interaction with nature.


▽客房室内 Inside the Guest Rooms



Surrounded by tropical vegetation, guests freely breathe nature’s freshness. Meditating by the beautiful pool and strolling or cycling along tranquil trails are some of the must-dos. Enjoying these relaxing activities on a vacation in nature purifies one’s heart and helps foster a slow-paced travel experience by the riverside.


▽各类室外活动场所 Various Venues for Outdoor Activities



LUX* Chongzuo is a pastiche of the beauty of the countryside, landscape, architecture, and building materials. Rooted in the respect of the local culture, it reflects a simple yet elegantly modern architectural concept – a brilliant poetic interpretation of cultural expressions all in a natural landscape.
