'The Seeds' are a cluster of cozy two-floor cabins designed for the woodland Tree Wow hotel in Jiangxi, China, by Shanghai studio ZJJZ Atelier. The series of stilt-propped cabins have a distinct seed shape, hence the name, that, when paired with the warm brown-colored exterior, exudes softness and tranquility. The pine shingles and mirrored aluminum tiles that adorn The Seeds' outsides combine natural texturing with a contemporary sensibility.
The Seeds' interiors are similarly wooden and are equipped with all of the home essentials. The rooms have a gently curving design that looks comfortable and feels calming. The unobtrusive round windows offer plenty of natural light, adding to the cabins' earthy charm. The Seeds are also fitted with open terraces so guests can enjoy the landscape's natural beauty. Alongside The Seeds, ZJJZ Atelier also designed 'The Mushroom' guesthouse for Tree Wow hotel.
