China’s horseshoe hotel

Beijing-based studio MAD designed a hotel shaped like a giant horseshoe at the edge of Taihu Lake in Huzhou, China and the project has now been completed

The Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort comprises a pair of matching 27-storey towers connected on the upper levels to form a curving arch across the water.

Ma Yansong of MAD designed the building which has 282 guest rooms, while additional villas and guest facilities are housed within several accompanying buildings.
