Emerging Milan based firm Peter Pichler Architecture won an international invited competition for a mixed use development in Taiping, China. It is the first project in China for the young firm, that was founded in Milan two and a half years ago. The mixed use development consists of a boutique Hotel, residential apartments, offices, retail, parks and parking.


The site is located on a hill within a forest in Taiping, approx. 30km from Kunming, China.


The project is inspired by vernacular Chinese elements. The idea is to connect the surrounding woods with parks within the site that are conceived as layered fields, taking inspiration from Chinese rice fields. The layered landscape surrounds the ellipse-formed towers to create a homogeneous relationship.


The wood facade is inspired by ancient vernacular Chinese architecture. The depth of the ellipse formed rings on each floor changes according to orientation and program. The use of bamboo on the residential balconies should amplify the feeling of nature. The green rooftops will offer impressive views towards the surrounding woods and nature of Taiping.
