Innhouse Kunming, China

Nestled in the forest of Kunming, the eco friendly Innhouse, is a winner of the 2012 WAN Award.  The Innhouse is just one in a series of projects by The Oval Partnership.  Their aim is to create and set the standard for environmentally correct design.

The Innhouse is a “village” of 17 guesthouses arranged in an “L” shape surrounded by nature trails and retained trees.  The building units are composed of two wings and a semi open vertical circulation unit.  The guest suite has a  cantilevered balcony and open living space.  The sustainable design maximizes natural daylight and ventilation.  The site also utilizes solar thermal hot water, rainwater recycling and grey water reuse
