China | 2020
The clouds brightened up and the rain has disappeared for Hengshan, while Tianmashan and Fenghuangshan amongst the mountains are soaked in between the trees of spring. Sing a song as I will say farewell to my friend, and the big bird spread its wings to hit the water as an announcement of the beginning. Chongming is located by the estuary of the Yangtze River, and the fishing village lifestyle in the past featured both the tranquility of the ocean, as well as the simplicity of the island. It stays independently peaceful and isolated without being disturbed regardless of how bustling the city is. We not only want to create a place to sell the houses, but further to build a human-oriented “landmark cultural center” in search of new inspirations to reinterpret the traditional forms and culture in order to create an extraordinary visual experience. The etiquette is revealed by the courtyard, demonstrating the elegance of Chongming. A fashionable sentiment is presented with metallic colors, where the ambience created depicts the exquisiteness and style of the entire space; large clean glass in unique style and exquisite art form further features characteristic folk customs. The artistic top with a “pitched roof” structure forms diversified features, creating distinctive characteristics that are known to be ingenious. The artistic light on the top resembles the starry sky that extends to allow the entire space with mystery and openness. As for the layout planning, each detail demonstrated Jiangnan's sentiment as well as the state of pursuing freedom, nature and being the pioneer. The simplicity and primitiveness of black, white and grey complement each other, fully demonstrating the creation of the vintage and comfortable ambience with a light elegant oriental sentiment on the land of the southern part of the country. The discussion area adopted an open-style layout, connecting each functional area while keeping the order of the main role and the secondary roles. In the past days, people also gather up to savor tea and admire paintings just like today.
