Dawang Mountain Resort by Coop Himmelb(l)au

Coop Himmelb(l)au will be designing a 120,000 square meter deep pit ice and snow world complex, complete with restaurants and hanging gardens. Dubbed ‘Dawang Mountain Resort‘, the building volume is integrated into a picturesque changsha landscape and positioned directly on top of a historical cement mining quarry pit and lake.

In the design solution towards the south and east, the existing quarry pit is revealed and the sculpted shell of the snow and ice world spans 170 meters from cliff to cliff over a sunken and hanging garden creating a new functional leisure space of islands, water, cliffside pathways and ramps connecting the building to this natural heritage.

This unique framed open space in between architecture and landscape is also characterized through an impressive central glass cone providing controlled natural daylight down through the ice world structure and on to the islands and water surfaces.
