Wedged in a valley between Tiantai Mountain and Siming Mountain in China, a 1956 Granary station gets transformed into the Miya LostVilla Huchen Barn Resort. The property's six existing buildings have been renovated for the hotel, bringing back authentic features like the stone facade back to their original state while drop ceilings were removed to expose the structure's timber construction. Throughout the interior are 21 airy guest rooms offering private sun decks with distinct views of the mountainous landscape. A seventh building provides the site with a reception and meeting facility. Taking on a sleek contemporary form, the new construction bridges the gap between old and new.
