We simplify and sharpen several results by K. Zhang concerning properties of quasiconvex hulls of sets and quasiconvex envelopes of their distance functions. The approach emphasizes the underlying geometry and in particular we show that ¡b¿K¡sup¿pc¡/sup¿=K¡sup¿c¡/sup¿¡/b¿ implies ¡b¿K¡sup¿rc¡/sup¿=K¡sup¿c¡/sup¿¡/b¿ if and only if ¡b¿minm,n ¡= 2¡/b¿ thus answering a question raised in
