The formation of the mountain has been tempered for thousands of years and comes from different forces of nature. Since ancient times, Nuwa has refined colorful stones in Taihang Mountain. Yu Gong did not fear difficulties and continued to dig the mountain. Reflect the charm of natural forces and the spirit of national struggle

The design of Windham air lobby takes the momentum and wonder of Taihang Mountain and the relaxed and happy state of climbing up and looking forward. On the one hand, it has a high-altitude scenery, on the other hand, it is backed by the cliff shape, and the stars in the sky will be the top of the mountain and look at the small mountains. The cliff shaped body of the air lobby is forged by local craftsmen, rather than produced by the standard process of modern factories. The shape comes from the tempering of different craftsmen.


The full day restaurant refines the beam structure and color inside the temple building. After reorganization and arrangement, combined with the separation on the space plane, it restores the beam through the bucket and the carved Jue on the Danying. The antique wood material adds a simple atmosphere to the restaurant. The traditional screen design separates the restaurant in layout, which can be opened or closed, and the restaurant can be flexibly separated according to the operation needs.


There are many temples in Taihang Mountain with different forms. Folk beliefs have been inherited for thousands of years and have been renamed folk beliefs from superstition. Temple construction is in the ascendant and has formed a unique folk culture.

Each room has different forms and shows different theme scenery. The overall color is relaxed and lively, and the bedside background is highlighted.
