Tsingpu Tulou Retreat Courtyard in Zhangzhou

Architecture TAO (Trace Architecture Office)

Steel, green slate, rammed earth, and Chinese fir unite through a humanistic architectural approach...

so as to present the hotel as being inseparable from its environment. The structure’s interiors have been opened up to create luxuriously decorated spaces that belie the historic façades, while columns and beams from ancient neighboring structures were incorporated into the renovation. The property’s thin roofs enable the structures to naturally frame the surrounding scenery.

Interior design TAO (Trace Architecture Office)

Deceptively simple and seemingly unadorned so as to capture the flavor of simple and traditional Chinese life...

the design at Tsingpu Tulou Retreat has an underlying sense of contemporary luxury. Warm wood and the crisp lines of contemporary furnishings augment a color pallet defined by Chinese fir, rammed soil, grass marl, and plain cement. Furniture indigenous to the region highlights traditional craftsmanship, while also creating a new and contemporary design language.

The 5000-year story of tea in China

Some may chalk this up to fanciful mythology, but legend has it that tea was first discovered when Shen Nong, the Chinese emperor accredited with inventing agriculture, was sipping on hot water under a tree around 2740 BC when a leaf was blown into his mug. Medicine, Asian culture, and the planet’s drinking habits have been indelibly tea-stained since.
