Modern mountain hut turns into hermitage of Oriental inspiration

Contemporary hideout for pensive meditation: a mix of minimalist interiors and close link with nature

Chinese architect Xu Fu-Min is the author of an extra-luxury mountain retreat in Fujian Province, China: a minimalist retreat where to avoid the city's hustle and bustle without sacrificing comfort and style 

Speaking of contemporary China, oversize and bustling megalopolises immediately come to mind. Quite a far cry from this modern mountain house where to hide away for contemplative sessions as prescribed by the Chinese philosophy. Local architect Xu Fu-Min is the author of such heaven-like retreat in stunning Fujian Province, a sort of mountain chalet-hut which approaches the more traditional idea of rustic hermitage for contemplative observations of nature from a modern perspective.

Lost among tree groves and rocky landscapes, the ultra-luxury mountain house blends harmonically with the immediate natural surroundings. Sophisticated, essential and natural interiors evoke the need of peace of mind and tranquility in a secluded scenario without sacrificing comfort.

A living space with double-height ceilings and glazed wall overlooking the garden stands at the core of the house, whose interior layout – made of large and breezy volumes – radiates a feeling of emptiness.

In order to avoid excess decoration, the domestic environment is made functional, simple and cozy through a small selection of minimalist furniture and raw natural materials like stone and timber.

The living area is cladded in grey stone, with floorings made out from slate tiles on the lower floor and solid wood floorboards upstairs.

The master bedroom includes a bathing area enclosed by see-through glass walls and featuring a generous tub with a large natural rock protruding up from the ground.
