The design explores a thousand years of historical and cultural elements of the ancient city of Datong, Yungang Grottoes, and the Eight Scenic Spots of Yunzhong. The basis of the concept for the large-scale art decorations originates from the natural arcs from Yunzhong. And this concept is artistically expressed by leaving large white empty spaces. By dispersing them across the open area in curved lines enables movement to flow naturally when walking around the model area. At the start, the space of the entrance area is narrow. But, it then opens up to a space with two-storey simple white curved walls, enhancing the sense of spatial ceremony. The lobby space uses coloured linear art installations breaking the balance of the space. The inspirations originate from the divergent light and the triangular shape from the "Night Tower" of YunZhong. And using modern linear craftsmanship to develop the concept further, which displays the meaning of "living to the light".The surrounding white matt texture painted wall reflects the natural lights as it shines through the glass window. Creating colourful light spots looking like crystals that break the boundary between virtual and reality. As you walk through the front hall to the open sand table model area, you can see the umbrella-shaped chapiter and arc-shaped beams. And they have been designed to integrate into the structural space of the building creatively. The ground, column, ceiling etc are all pure white matt Malay lacquer finishes and hanging bronze crystal art lamps. The collision between the different materials and shapes makes the space more alive and astonishing. The common area displays the "new humanistic lifestyle" where everyone can experience. We have bought "a tree" to incorporate nature into the room. Simultaneously, integrated the functions of coffee and book bars into the area. There you can find fresh Japanese Pieris, plentiful books to read, exquisite artwork decoration, curved shaped sofas, and standing floor lamps. They altogether form a natural sense of enclosure in the room.
