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
