    From winery resorts in Dalian and Beijing to mixed-use developments in emerging areas, SB Architects has announced master planned projects for its Chinese clients looking to capitalise on the China’s growing luxury lifestyle industry.

    “Master planned projects continue to emerge in China, providing more opportunities for a luxury lifestyle that provides a sense of place through amenities, services and experiences,” said Scott Lee, president of SB Architects. “Our planned communities are distinct in that the design incorporates natural surroundings and local culture in order to create a solid sense of place. We look to tie in new brands, new experiences and new destinations through comprehensive design and planning. We’re delighted to be part of this growing trend and to be able to provide our clients with this expertise.”

    Slated to open in end of 2018, Golden Pebble Winery in Dalian China is the first winery resort to open in China’s Liaoning Province. Set in the mountain valley with designs inspired by farmhouses, Golden Pebble Winery will encompass a true master plan concept, with a welcome center, full-production winery, a boutique hotel, and commercial and residential villages. The Liaodong Peninsula is known for beaches, golfing and temperate climate, and the design reflects this with building forms and materials that reinforce the authenticity of a warm environment. Located on 200 hectares, the resort is surrounded by hillside villages, with the residences tucked into upper reaches of the hills, providing expansive views of surrounding vineyards.

    Luneng Wen’an Winery & Hotel opened in 2018, and includes two hotels and a full production winery on a picturesque lakeside site south of Beijing. SB Architects’ first winery resort to open in China, the resort provides a luxury experience surrounded by water, botanical gardens and nearby vineyards. The 400-room hotel designed with a rustic sophistication sits upon an island in the middle of the lake, and the European Chateau-style winey sits at the opposite end of the body of water. The nearby mixed-use village town center features retail-space and residences in the upper levels.
