The FRP House is located in the FoShou Lake area in Nanjing, which is a scenic weekend getaway for city residents. The designated program is a
hotel-villa hybrid set against the mountains and facing the lake. The building is supported by thin columns, appearing to float above the site cover
with lush vegetation. The natural topography and drainage patterns are therefore kept intact to prevent soil erosion.Three cascading two-story
structures conform to the steep slope. The first floor houses the bedroom, while the second floor is for communal activity. One can access the
“bridges”on the rooftops from the "courtyards” between the buildings, creating a rich relationship between the interior and exterior.
The generous spacing in between the structure allows for the circulation of local breeze, while also allowing the building to adapt to varying
topography. And thus, the use of the building can be seen as a re-enactment of going uphill and downhill.
