Appreciation towards Studio 10 for providing the following description:

创意民宿“别居”位于桂林平乐县漓江畔,Studio 10负责了其中“光. 影”主题房型的改造。在二层通高的坡屋顶空间中,建筑师希望通过材料、光影的运用,探求空间与自然的关系。

The Other Place is a creative guesthouse by the Li River in Pingle County, Guilin, and Studio 10 has just finished the renovation of its Light-and-Shadow-themed guestrooms. In the double-height space with pitched roof ceiling, the architect explores the relationship between space and nature through the application of materials, light and shadow.

▼室内空间一览,overall view of the interior


Unnecessary decorative element has been eliminated, leaving the space with only the essentials; using recycled vintage elm, bamboo, rattan as well as other local natural materials, it aims at creating an introspective, rustic and ideological Utopia to call for reflection on the materialism, desire and obsession in our daily life.

▼卫生间,吧台和衣柜整合成一个体块,空间中没有多余装饰,washroom, bar and cabinet are integrated in one block with minimum decoration

▼开放的卧室,open bedroom



Bathroom, kitchenette and TV Cabinet are consolidated into a single “box” in the space, allowing the space to be completely open, fluid and free of full-height partitions. The local bamboo and traditional woven handicrafts are a source of inspiration – the concrete walls are finished in woven bamboo texture, and the custom-made pendant lights utilizes bamboo-weaved baskets as shades to create a unique light-and-shadow effect while increasing soft surfaces to enhance acoustic performance.
