A former school in Qinyong, China, has been converted into a hotel by Shanghai architecture studio Atelier XUK. The school was built in the 1970s and its façade has been preserved as a mark of respect to the history and memories of the villagers of Qinyong. 18 classrooms have been converted into 22 guest bedrooms. The ancillary wing, which was the faculty building, has been turned into a café, a dining room and a rooftop canteen. The school playground has been turned into a concrete swimming pool.
