Stacked, cantilevered rooms provide forest views and privacy for guests at this small hotel in the Qiyun Mountain area of China.
Designed by Shanghai–based Bengo Studio, the Qiyunshan Tree House is nestled between a winding mountain road and the dense surrounding forest. With just seven rooms in total, this small resort hotel features two private bedrooms and bathrooms for individual guests, along with a communal living room, reading room, and roof deck. The irregularly stacked spaces are connected by a central spiral staircase, affording guests with access to 360-degree views.
With approximately 1,300 square feet of living space, each room features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the landscape. The split-level design provides guests with privacy and the opportunity to experience the view at different heights—almost as if they were climbing the surrounding trees themselves.
