The hotel is named "Bole", which means that the hotel is like a cruise ship anchored on the Yangtze River. Designers Shen Mo and Tao Jianpu combined concepts such as the water of the Yangtze River, docks, containers, and sailboats into the space design. The original building is arc-shaped, and transparent "boxes" are constructed of glass. Every space can enjoy the view of the Yangtze River. The hotel covers an area of 2000 square meters, and has planned 12 guest rooms, restaurants, party areas, open-air infinity swimming pools, public rest areas and other areas. At the junction of the two buildings, as a public rest area, there is a restaurant, a bar front desk and a sunken deck. Through the floor-to-ceiling glass, the space suddenly opens up. At this point, the building seems to disappear, and there are subtle connections between the space and the environment.  The top of the entire public area is a piece of wood. The curved block surface of the bottom of the cruise ship is extracted and the mast is used as the support column, full of surprises and highlights. The designer hopes that guests can feel the experience of being in a cruise ship while sitting by the window and enjoying the river view in the distance. The designer continuously injects freshness into the space, and builds a pool landscape around the Sunken living room living room. Looking into the distance, the water surface extends out of the space infinitely and merges with the river water. An arc-shaped walkway runs through the guest rooms on both sides. In order to make the building independent, a metal plate with a circular hole is used to separate it from the surrounding environment. Light penetrates through the circular hole and spots are reflected on the wall like sparkling water. , Shuttle in the light and shadow, like a dream and illusion. The 12 guest rooms of Bole Art Hotel are all facing the river. Surrounded by natural landscape, the space is more unique and touching.
