The total center benefits from improved space planning and innovation thanks to Lv Shaocang's design, which is dedicated to combining local culture with oriental charm. In the Jiangsu region, it blends the two temperament types of "hardness and softness," "brightness and darkness," and "coldness and warmth", thus bringing new energy to life. This design recreates a beautiful volume of the landscape in the city center where people can enjoy river boating and thinking about the meaning of life.

Thanks to the care provided by the historic city of Taixing and the surrounding waters and environment, the entrance hall's shape was inspired by the local boat culture. The horizontal and vertical skeleton that serves as the entrance hall's main framework resembles the wooden framework of the cabin. There is a rostral boat at the welcome area, which blends natural appeal with cutting-edge design approaches to outline the atmosphere of running water, with elements like pine branches, jasper, and water droplets as decoration.

The passage in the waiting area contributes to our feeling towards running water if we come slowly by boat. The bright belt on either side looks like a river bank standing up, and the long, peaceful river is gently moving in the distance under the projection of light and shadow. The finely crafted gold-plated steel wire art installation is swaying with the stardust in the foggy countryside background, looking much like the tail of a boat or a falling tree leaf.

Lv Shacang designs the deep and shallow curves as the major parts of the wall in the dressing room area as inspiration from the zigzagging river bank. The quiet and cozy environment has a magic power to sooth people's emotions. After investigating the winding path, we are surprised to find that the water's rhythm and gentleness can be felt, as well as the contrast between the willow and the flower created by the soft white light and shadow.
