Surreal, Escher-Like Guesthouses in China

The world of M.C. Escher comes to life in this larger-than-life surrealist design for a series of guesthouses in Guilin, China. A series of wild staircases bring you into a make believe world, transporting your senses. Designed by firm studio 10, the sense of wonder is pretty impressive, as well as stylish. Via DesignMilk:

It’s easy to see how Dream and Maze resemble Escher’s work. The architects sought to create a “mysterious, infinite and impossible space with the seamless transformation amongst 2D and 3D as well as optical illusion elements.”
