 “KAZENOYU” Onsen is a Japanese style Onsen project, located on the 3-4th floor of one of the buildings in the garden resort hotel in Huanghai Forest Park, Dongtai city.

As we know, Japanese Onsen pay attention to the unity of heaven and man, and have a close contact with nature.

Therefore, we came up with the concept of "embracing the forest and breathing in nature". We wished to present our customers with the most special experience: a nude bath without a bathing suit, a direct embrace of the forest and a return to nature.

So, we firstly renovated the building by removing a large amount of glass from the facade, and changed the Onsen space to semi-outdoor, so that guests can directly embrace the forest without passing through the glass, feel the natural wind, and hear the sound of leaves or rain.

In order to emphasize the feeling of greenery with the forest, we designed a huge frame in the Onsen space to increase the depth of the space and to bring in the natural beauty at the same time. The Onsen is naturally close to the frame, achieving a strange scene of mingling water and scenery. When the lights are turned on at night, the Onsen water waves will be mapped onto the top of the frame, which sublimates this scene and forms a real sense of forest fantasy Onsen.
