Entry DescriptionRuralation Museum Hotel stands in the Nanjing Tangshan Homo Erectus Relics Park. The location where it was built was originally an abandoned quarry pit with a special base landform. With the stones, exposed mountain rocks, and volcanic ash-like white cement distributed in the quarry pit, the tonality of these bases becomes the source of building tones, providing a basis for the origin of our lighting design.
The lighting concept for the night views of the hotel is to use a minimal amount of light. Among the dense mountainous views and hazy moonlight, light from the hotel rooms shines towards the outside and into a courtyard lined with olive trees, creating a warm and natural atmosphere.
The lighting arrangement is just like an exercise in light sketching. Life needs light, as romance needs moonlight. Sunglow and fog spread all over the space at both sunset and sunrise, and the sunlight surrounds you in the daytime. It feels as if you are living leisurely in a realm of light on every cloudy night. Your leisurely stays on such cloudy nights are sure to be romantic experiences.
