The designer creates a classical building by introducing the local culture into the space, adhering to the spirit of "goodwill, good fate, and beautiful things.” This project is a homestay located in Kenting, incorporating local landscape elements such as the chinook, fish poison tree (Barringtonia Asiatica), and the waves’ arc. Using the dismantling of characters in Chinese literature, the founder had chosen his surname character and its indexing components as the origin of the homestay’s name, reflecting Taiwanese culture. Overlooking the building, one will realize that its base comprises two triangles connected. The designer has fully unitized every inch of this deformed land created by this unique geographical environment by making extra storage space and reorganizing the pipes. In addition, the team also cleverly used triangular elements to echo the terrain of the base. As the only building in Kenting that harnessed stone as its exterior, the building is matched with natural materials to reflect the interconnection between architecture and natural landscape. The welcome counter is uniquely set up on the third floor. Visitors will see the vast lawn and courtyard strolling to the roof, disclosing a green and fresh atmosphere. Implementing large-scale grass-skating fields and slides creates a fun area for parents and children. Extending to the bar area, the wooden floor is used to divide the site, and the black tone reveals a hint of drunken charm. Plus, the designer uses golden lines to outline the blossoms of the fish poison tree on the dark glass. The entertainment venue was built with stone bricks and logs, creating a primitive and rustic style. At the book wall at the corner of the stairs, the designer uses a wooden bookcase to store many comic books, and quotations from the books are creatively written on the wall. Visitors will feel the sensation of coming to a new world and wanting to stay. The entrance to the restaurant is interlaced with titanium-plated diamond lines. The corridor depicts the appearance of Sisal hemp.
