A bamboo “forest” wraps around this unique oasis-like space hidden atop a Chinese shopping mall. Beijing-based V STUDIO designed the Bamboo Rooftop Room, a minimalist, all-white space for a client who wanted an intimate space for business and leisure purposes. Designed as a quiet refuge, the rooftop project stands in purposeful contrast to the bustling urban landscape. Located on the eastern end of the roof , the 220-square-meter Bamboo Rooftop Room consists of a glazed rectangular volume enclosed by a high wall for privacy. Set against a white backdrop, bamboo planted around the main volume gives inhabitants the illusion of being in a bamboo forest. Gaps between the wall and main volume are used as private courtyards and allow indirect natural light to reach the interior.

Furnishings are made from timber and upholstered in fabrics of muted colors, while views of the bamboo grove can be enjoyed through full-height glazing from every room. The interior is split into meeting spaces of varying sizes with a kitchen and dining room at the core. A bedroom is located on the east side. + V STUDIO
