Hotel interiors & architecture – Pale pink and forest green reign in a renovated guesthouse in the city of Guilin in the northeast of China’s Guangxi region. The MC Escher-inspired spaces by Studio 10 “meant to create a mysterious, infinite and impossible interior design”.

The concept-interior design takes over two rooms called Dream & Maze which are nested under a seven-metre-high structure with a pitched roof.
Guesthouse owner Feifei Yi asked for an out-of-the-box project tuning with the hotel’s “hideout from the bustling world” imprint. From here, Studio 10 merged 2D and 3D elements to produce a series of optical illusions.
In the first guest room a pale pink and white color palette renders the interior space serene and surreally fresh, far from the chaos of mundane daily life.
“All components from the real world such as lighting fixtures and electronic appliances have been concealed behind a series of black-painted doors, maintaining the pristine, chimerical nature of the space,” explain at Studio 10.

An other guest room comes in forest-green and features anti-gravitational stairs leading to golden doors. “Behind the portals there could be a trail leading to a secret forest – or some other unexpected findings that surprises you”.
“After visiting the site for the first time, which was just an unfinished, concrete room, we saw the opportunity to do something special, spatially, as the space was unusually high and felt almost like a chapel. Some obscure thoughts started to emerge.” Explained at Studio 10 to Dezeen.
