Three old houses scattered in a staggered way in the old house is located on the hillside, one brick structure, two wooden rammed earth houses, the old house is surrounded by a rich and diverse climate, wood and bamboo lush, a mountain view in the distance, which is the treasure of the whole design. I remember that when the manager of SHANAN invited us here for the first time, he told us about their business philosophy: mountains and water, trees and rocks, all in one, full of picturesque, full of the interpretation of the concept of resort life, and from the living environment to the surrounding outdoor sports, everywhere is full of the atmosphere of closeness to nature and enjoyment of the love of life.

Nature, emotion, and old buildings, as the source point, three new houses grow up from the old houses, with rough earth-colored skin, and simple and straightforward geometric language, born in the earth, hidden in the bamboo sea. The trowel-smeared color, extracted from the land that nurtured this bamboo forest, neutralizes the distance between the grey bricks and the green bamboos, and is like a mark of time, serene and solemn, steeped in the flavor of history.
