The DNA: Occupying three interconnected buildings, the luxury Taoxichuan Hotel is a nexus of tradition and innovation. The site itself, close to the city centre, was once home to porcelain factories and is now rethought as a mixed-use quarter. Each space interprets and celebrates different ceramic characteristics and techniques, from the green celadon glazing in the lobby to the calm clay tones of the bedrooms. It is located in Jingdezhen, in the Jiangxi province of eastern China, an area famous for porcelain production for more than 1,000 years.
