The project is located in South Chawan Village, Yichang City. The village is surrounded by half-annular stone mountains and two crossed rivers. The ancients of village people lived here for centuries, which makes local people still kept the most traditional relations. The local traditional stone building technology achieved the original ecological way of life.

The two houses used to belong to local brothers. The exterior part was crafted with stones.

To preserve the texture of the stone walls, the original wooden structure had taken place by the steel frame structure. Set large glazed windows on stone walls, and the removed stones were laid as the interior side of walls.

To preserve the integrated structure for the in & outside of stone walls, a glass box with a steel structure combining two buildings in the middle, as the lobby and courtyard for the main entrance. And there's a stairway leading to the 2nd floor is set behind the courtyard.

There are two respectively public spaces in Western and Chinese style on the 1st floor. The western-style area set a cafe and enclosed fireplace to meet guests' social communication needs. For guests' different needs, the place for Calligraphy, Joss-stick, Tea ceremony, Painting and dinning are put in Chinese style area.

The second floor consists of four rooms, including three standard king rooms and one Family suite room. Multiplied variety of rooms providing a rich experience for guests.

More attention is paid to the integrity of the architecture and the environment, which shapes the space from the exterior into interior design. The windows are used as paint-frames and the scenery is taken as the paintings, those are how we connect the physical space and natural emotions.

Different from the closed ancient villages in the past, the South Chawan Stone house Tribe retains its original style and features but also has clean drinking water, electricity, and communication, as well as convenient transportation. From a backward and impoverished village change to a modern natural ecotourism space that promotes local economic development.
