Design for three private villas in the town of Lijiang, China, by Menis Architects. For the three separate villas with an already existing structure on site, three distinct concepts were developed. The water villa as a private home, the hill villa as a private club and the tree villa as a guest house. The private home, the club and the guest house all gained a luxurious atmosphere with three distinctive characters.
The project was published and presented by two books; the black book conveying the atmosphere of the entire project from concept development to interior – and product design, and the white book, containing the project explanation and all technical drawings and details. As part of the design team I mostly worked on the water villa and was in charge of editing the two books for publication and presentation.
