Inspired by the water tribes of the Ming dynasty, the Fuchun Boat Rooms provide a tranquil lakeside stay in rural China. The hut-like rooms are situated on the shoreline, appearing to float over the water like a boat. Each cabin is designed to evoke the ancient culture of boat-living life with an arched timber form. Interiors are completely lined with warm wood planks, aside from a massive skylight above the bed and an end glazed wall. The glass facade leads out to a terrace overlooking the aquatic landscape and giving guests the feeling of drifting down the river.
