In 2013 we were asked to design a VIP club and tea house on a key site strategically located in the middle of the lake to the south of Shanghai Disneyland. Our architectural work yielded the following elements that we think capture the Client’s vision:
– China’s heritage architecture, which reinforces the park’s flourishing relationship with its specific host country.
– Formal, orthogonal relationship of simple, small scaled elements, which from a distance suggests a low-intensity program and a restful, comfortable experience on the island.
– Classical ornamentation and hand-crafted details, which make the foreground visually rich for guests on the island as they take in the spectacular distant views.
