Wuyuan Skywells hotel occupies a 300-year-old building in rural China

Anyscale Architecture Design made only subtle interventions to this centuries-old building in rural China to transform it into this boutique hotel, which features a host of original decor details.

Composed of just 14 guest suites, Wuyuan Skywells has been designed to have a series of spaces that "capture the essence of a bygone era".

A black-framed glass pavilion has also been added to accommodate a dining space. Upstairs, the bedrooms have been finished in a similarly more contemporary manner, with walls painted in cool tones like slate grey.

Studio 10 opted for a much more modern aesthetic for its design of a guesthouse in Chinese city Guilin – it features maze-like stairways and optical illusions inspired by Dutch artist MC Escher's eye-tricking illustrations.
