Perspective’s 40 Under 40 winner Philip Fung has transformed a local village house in China into the Qingli Hotel

Designer Philip Fung, a winner at Perspective’s 40 Under 40 2016 awards, has created a tranquil, modern living space at  Qingli Hotel, located inside a primitive village located on Weizhou Island, China.

In transforming the four-storey local building, Fung has emphasised the relationship between humans and nature. The construction is painted in white to accentuate its natural surroundings, forming contrasts with the blue sky and ocean.

The first floor, that houses the public areas including reception, bar and restaurant, features an open plan with full height glass doors to embrace the sweeping ocean view.

13 guestrooms are designed as secluded waterfront homes. A long seafront washroom, triangular balconies in the side rooms and skylight bathrooms on the top floor are adjusted to captilise on the amazing sea view.
