Situated on the northwest coast of the Melissa Complex on Haikou’s Haidian Island, “Sky Mountain” is the second coastal pavilion completed in the Haikou Bay area. With a total construction area of over 2,000 square meters, the pavilion — designed by the renowned Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto — consists of mountain-shaped round winding rooftops, creating a “mountain in the sky” in the coastal urban area.

In addition to the sightseeing paths on the rooftops offering a mesmerizing sea view of Haikou Bay, the pavilion will also provide spaces for art bookstores, cafes, exhibitions, and other exciting activities.
