There used to be an abandoned cement factory on the site. We proposed an exciting renewal plan to build an ecological rural cultural resort. The ground level of the building is a LOOP public space gently rising from the fields. The upper level is a mini town consisting of 68 living units with a panoramic view of the surrounding landscape. Facing the large rice field on the east side, it is a group of vault villa, where people and paddy fields are in super-close contact. On the west side, towards the river and mountains, there is a series of flat suites with customized private courtyards.
