An abandoned sugar mill in China has transformed into a new resort hotel. Vector Architects was able to use much of the refinery’s old structure and repurposed them into the new Alila Yangshuo hotel. The end result is a structure that features natural light and ventilation with beautiful mountain scenery.

The old sugar refinery was located between two mountains in the Guangxi region. Constructed back in the 1960's, it was separated into multiple buildings alongside the Li River used to load sugar cane on boats. Thanks to sugarcane being an unstable crop in China, the old mill was abandoned since 2002.
