The project is located northwest of the old capital, on the lush shores of Foshou Lake, next to a newly constructed hotel. We propose to create an intimate space with a singular gesture situated on a beautiful, mountainous landscape.

By splitting the topography, a space is generated within the site. The site is surrounded by trees and light filters in from its sides.

The bride descends down into the centre where the ceremony takes place. From the top of the roof—a concrete shell structure—one can see the sunset behind the mountains and the Yangtze River in a distance.
