LTW Designworks Creates a Relaxed and Timeless Retreat in Yilan.
The latest development from My Humble House Group in Taiwan is the Mu Hotel by My Humble House. Located in the remote province of Jiaoxi, this property is designed as an urban sanctuary located nearby natural hot springs.
Upon entering the serene lobby space, the guest will immediately be reminded of traversing through an art gallery. From the open planning to strategically located custom artworks, visitors are sure to be taken on a journey of discovery as they meander through the various spaces. The interior is both elegant and modern, minimalistic but also timeless. The owner’s private collection of art and artifacts are on display so the architectural forms of the public spaces resemble a gallery, framed with soft timber panels and matte white walls in which items such as the sculptural reception counter and organically shaped solid wood benches are carefully placed. From the open lobby guests can relax at the MU Bar, which is designed with a residential approach highlighted by smaller intimate groupings of seating.
The sophisticated neutral palette is further carried through to the guestrooms and suites, with shades of blue injected as accent colors on soft textured furnishing to exude a calming sensation for guests to relax and recharge. The spacious balcony areas are a key feature that allows guests to sit outdoors and enjoy views of the hot spring and mountains beyond. Twin sharing rooms have a communal table where guests can share space yet still have the feeling of privacy. Headboard panels include an indigo panel with custom artwork resembling water ripples to further enhance the natural feeling of this getaway location.
