This project has been looking for the relationship between nature, people and light. The center of the design is around the perception of "human" himself, making space, nature and human dialogue. The design emphasizes interactivity and the proportion of blank space. The light box not only liberates the space, but also puts life, art, taste and attitude to beauty in it, endows the space with uniqueness, and creates a design idea with Oriental aesthetics, natural attributes and humanistic spirit.

"Blank space" is a respect for life, and spatial tonality is also a return to the essence of living space. In the repeated deliberation of space, designers do not stick to the original closed state of space, and from the perspective of "human", improve the intimacy of human to nature, to find the living state of seclusion. The light box carries the deposition of time, and the blank space makes "people in the box" more likely. By retaining the emotion between people, they establish a new interwoven relationship, and integrate the power of nature to evolve the "box of light".

In the early stage of the contact project, the design team is also looking for an opportunity, that is, how to break through and establish the relationship between human and nature, understand the different needs of customers and give deeper thinking. In order to break the usual thinking, they always let designers think in detail that "design comes from life" while considering functionality. Therefore, the design of this case is based on the deep understanding of customers, the on-site experience and long-term thinking of life.

In the design process, designers often read about Louis Barragan's ideas, so the case runs through several themes that Barragan loved throughout his life, such as religious piety, light, body, and horse. Barragan said: "Tranquility is the real great medicine to relieve pain and fear, whether it is luxurious or simple, the architect's duty is to make tranquility a regular guest in the family." In the Light Box, returning to peace and inner precipitation may be a new start.
