Zhongkun Vineyard

Beijing, China
Beijing Zhongkun Investment Group
Project 2010 – 2012

Located north of Beijing near the Great Wall of China, this exclusive vineyard resort is a premium development in all respects.

The 100 hectare site sits in rural land sheltered by a mountain range.  A gradual approach along an 800 metre avenue heightens the sense of arrival.

The expressive gesture is of long walls with sticks on top, and a skewed metal tube resting jauntily on the sticks.  The buildings are configured to follow the land contours.  Submerged into the landscape, they come into view as a succession of stack stone walls.

The resort comprises a state-of-the-art winery, cellars, wine tasting facilities and related tourism facilities: art gallery, premium quality restaurants, day spa and conference venue.

Stage one includes 33 luxury clubhouse villas, each with a generous floor plan of some 1,500m², and a 6 Star, 60 suite boutique hotel.
