The building has a simple white colour throughout.
Through the combination of interspersed boxes, the form gives way or out of shape

Not only is the base surrounded by lush bamboo forests.
You can also see from the outside.
The mountains, the farmland texture, and the Zen garden in the mountains.
The understated simplicity of wood is an important element of interior design.

Design of negative floor, first floor public space, flexible use of load-bearing structure
While creating a variety of spaces for activities
It also eliminates the need for load-bearing structures to divide and block space.
The entire common area is virtually ungated.
The space is open and bright with strong penetration
Borrowing only stairs and low wooden walls to define specific spaces (e.g., a study)
Functionally, the negative floor is a multifunctional entertainment space.
Karaoke, video room, entertainment room and bar are all available.

7 separate guest rooms on the second and third floors
Each one has a good view of the city.
Intimate interaction with nature
Each room is designed according to its location and the surrounding nature.
Large corner windows facing different views.
At the same time, each room has a different theme and a different view of the landscape.
A stream, distant mountains, and dense bamboo forests are echoed to form different interior styles.
These floor-to-ceiling windows are like frames for photography.
The different natural landscapes are unveiled in front of the eyes of the residents as if they were paintings.
The interior of the building maximizes the absorption of natural scenery.
That’s how we got the room’s name, “Tan Xi”, “Mu Yang” and “Shaking Bamboo”.
In the pine building.
Every open window is a homeowner as a photographer.
Arrangement of framing after careful observation with the designer

Important means of interoperability
The architect and owner’s understanding of the project coincide
This homestay hidden in the bamboo forest should borrow from the landscape and blend in with nature.

Can create a complementary effect with B&Bs
The artistry of both decorating the space
It also infuses the author’s artistry.
Makes the B&B more distinctly personal

About Parallect Design
Founded in 2017 in the Netherlands, Parallect Design is a multifaceted design studio based in the Yangtze River Delta and the Netherlands. We are a broad design group, where architectural planning is our main market entry, and we intervene in design projects for space, interior, landscape, graphic and exhibition.
The design team has different educational and working backgrounds, and we want to break the “tradition” of design in this multicultural environment. We are experimental in our approach to the problem of design in different environments. We follow the parallel perspectives of users and intervene in the design, emphasizing the actual experience of the space. While focusing on the art, functionality and economy of design, we constantly explore the potential of space and the potential needs of users. We also encourage discussion and active participation of partners to make the design more valuable.
