Spread across 14 hectares of land, this multiple award-winning hotel on the outskirts of Hangzhou resembles a rural community. In fact, Amanfayun occupies a tea-farming village with roots in the Tang Dynasty, and 47 former dwellings dating as far as a century ago are still left intact. Jaya Ibrahaim's intent was to preserve as much of the original village as possible, allowing guests the chance to share in this authentic village experience. Existing floor plans were used as the footprint for the hotel’s facilities, and the design team incorporated historic details in the hotel décor wherever possible. Furniture, fabrics, window treatments and furnishings were designed to fit with the region’s simple forms and modest dimensions.
