Chengde Imperial Palace Hotel

Situated at the foot of Shuangta Hill, the historic spot of Chengde, the Imperial Palace Hotel owns a narrow site between a busy city road and the natural hill. A horizontal developed complex is the answer to resolve the site’s contradictory nature. The public area facing the road is strictly-symmetrical, while the guest room area on the north which is close to the scenery occupies a looser plan. This layout could be considered as a modern translation of the juxtaposition of palace and garden in the Imperial Summer Resort of Chengde.
