Take it, inhale and breath it. Slice it, squeeze it to reveal its essence.
I always excited to see renovation works which change from not used, old places to something cool but still remains the feeling of the history.
Dariel Studio has renovated and transformed three old separate Ming Dynasty-style buildings into a heritage 20-room hotel, the Blossom Hill Boutique Hotel, which is located in the water town of Zhouzhuang, 1,5 hour away from Shanghai.
The building was formerly divided into 4 parts, a Museum, a Tea House, a Guesthouse and the last part was abandoned. The hotel renovation aims to restore the initial spatial unity of the building and preserve the splendid architectural heritage.
