Sunriver Resort & Spa Huangshan by CCD

The project by CCD is hidden in a valley of Huangshan Scenic Area, near the Yungu Temple. Sitting at an altitude of 800 meters, the resort hotel is surrounded by mountains, clouds and mist. It embraces nature, and provides a serene environment.


It was transformed from the formerly Yungu Hotel, which is a complex composed of five Hui-style architectures. Taking on the characteristics of local traditional houses, the complex was designed by Wang Guoyu, one of the Second Generation of Chinese Architects. Nestling under hillsides, the buildings are scattered on the site and form many courtyards. The cluster of architectures perfectly blends into nature, embodies the traditional Chinese philosophy of “unity of man with nature”, and has become an iconic cultural landmark in Huangshan Scenic Area.
After being put into use for more than three decades, the complex needed refurbishment. CCD was entrusted to renovate it and give it a brand-new image.
Walking along a little path,
I find a footprint on the moss,
A white cloud low on the quiet lake,
Grasses that sweeten an idle door,
A pine grown greener with the rain,
A brook that comes from a mountain source,
And, mingling with Truth among the flowers,
I have forgotten what to say.
— by ancient poet Liu Changqing
