Beijing studio MAD has revealed new photographs of its hotel shaped like a giant horseshoe at the edge of Taihu Lake in Huzhou, China (+ slideshow).
The Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort comprises a pair of matching 27-storey towers that are connected on the upper levels to form a smoothly curving arch across the water.
Ma Yansong of MAD designed the building for the Sheraton hotels chain, which was responsible for the interior fit out. A total of 282 guest rooms are contained inside, while additional villas and guest facilities are housed within several accompanying buildings.
Some rooms are already available, but the building will officially open in December – read more about the project in our earlier story.
