We lowered the original height of the eaves of the building. In this way, before people enter the bookstore, the closeness of the gray and black eaves makes people form a psychological hint of the transition between indoor and outdoor—a certain ritual before entering the world of reading and self-exploration sense. The volume of the red brick building is combined with the light skin combing, so that the building has a simple and classic readability, and it also has the unique book atmosphere of Lushan Academy. The black and white ceiling surface separates the open reading area from the passage. People's movement and stillness in the place will be carried out in the envisaged order. This setting also guarantees the openness and transparency of the scene. The depressed side facing the window spreads out horizontally, and the green space in the backyard looks out to the vastness and depth of the sea. This design gives people a profound sense of perspective and makes people feel that everything seems close at hand. The steps surrounding the flower stand are rugged and gorgeous. The light from the roof is spilled into the room from a fixed angle every day, and then the texture of the concrete stairs is carved like a knife, and then the texture of the black stroke device is polished with light from various angles. Every day, it goes back and forth. If we want a bright future, we must make progress every day, continue to cross the ladder of knowledge one after another, and feel the strength of each step of the foot that impacts the depths of the soul. The road show release area is raised one step higher, and the light-transmitting ceiling makes the venue more pure and solemn. The motivation for this design is to share ideas so that ideas can be delivered on parallel interfaces. What is stationary is the people under the same roof; what is moving is the interaction and collision of thoughts.
