Appreciation towards Zen-In Architects for providing the following description:

“尘曦”民宿是一对80后夫妇在中国大陆东端岛屿的理想家园,民宿原为岛中央山腰上的一处原生的石头民舍。坐看潮起云涌、历经风雨洗礼,石头民舍成就了质朴的海岛文化和岁月沉淀的美。而“在地民居”和“自然肌理”正是 “尘曦”民宿设计的切入点。

Zenstay Hotel is the ideal home for a post-80s couple on the eastern end of mainland China, originally a stone house on a hillside in the middle of the island. Sitting and watching the tides rise and fall, and weathered by the elements, the stone house has contributed to the rustic island culture and the beauty of the years. The “local dwelling” and “natural texture” are the entry points for the design of the Zenstay Hotel.

The project preserves the stone walls, wooden floor slabs, wooden roof frame and grey tiled sloping roof of the old building to the greatest extent, creating a simple and original living space. At the same time, white blocks are inserted at the entrance of the ground floor to link the originally separated public spaces and give them a sense of depth; an outdoor atrium is set up in the centre of the lobby to regulate the light and atmosphere; through the frame structure, several white blocks are elevated on the third floor and their orientation is reversed to match the landscape; above the third floor, a roof terrace is formed to meet the supporting functions, such as infinity pool, amphitheatre and gathering space.

The new part creates a high quality functional experience of the current Minshuku, while the old part retains the character of the local architecture. The purpose between the old and the new is clear, creating a dramatic opposition. The atrium, the staircase and the high-ceilinged grey space are used to blur and attempt to reconcile this layered conflict, ultimately achieving spatial unity and stability.
