    The project is located in the city of Hohhot, the capital of the Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region. The total building area is 20,605sqm, divided over 17 floors. The conceptual base for the design of this project is the Mongolian culture and the use of natural materials, such as stone and wood, to reflect its deep roots with nature. The historical soul of the Region was also a strong inspirational medium, with the design aiming to reinterpret its ethnic, folkloristic, and artistic values.

    The idea of carved walls in the reception desk area was taken from the ancient art of stone and wood carving which the Mongolian people have traditionally practiced since the first nomadic Xiongnu tribes established themselves in the area more than two thousand years ago. The traditional characteristics of the project are of course also integrated with a modern architectural language, to reflect the rapid development that the Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region has been facing in the last decade.
