Traditional theaters pay more attention on panoramic sound effects and the viewing experience on the screen while they lack creativity. The single business model of selling tickets and snacks, will it somehow weaken the experience and expectations that the venue can give the audience? Or ignore the chemistry that can occur between the audience and the theater? As designers, we found an improvement approach which might be potential answer to the questions in this project. According to the original plane, we can only build four relatively square video halls. Since this space pattern is difficult to provide rich viewing, we changed the thinking of traditional design and transformed its logic that purely focused on decoration into more in-depth thinking. From the perspective of integrating composite formats, the theater space is integrated with other formats with similar entertainment attributes to build an avant-garde new cinema space that meets the relatively closed business loops. Originating from the owner’s personal hobby, we moved the lounge bar into the theater space. It is not only an independently operable space, but also symbiotic and mutually beneficial with the cinema. The experiential claw machine and other entertainments also stimulates consumers to extend their stay in the theater, maximizes the value of the space effect, and makes up for the free time before and after the movie. In terms of design concepts and aesthetics, we also break away from tradition and use space narrative to uniquely show the “shooting scene” of film production. Consumers’ flows just string out the film’s narrative logic so that the demand for spatial aesthetic experience before and after the film-watching was fully tapped and met. The main hall of the cinema presents unique “visual effects” to every audience. The exaggerated black and gold color looks dramatic. The sales area and ticket office constructed by the exquisite “prop box” create a sense of fashion. The large floor lamps inspired from photographic lamp stand in between, creating a strong immersive experience atmosphere. The warm-colored lights of the different geometric shapes not only give the audience a strong scene suggestion, but also reflect the abstract art style with the lights refracted on the gradient floor. The billiard table is supported by the fantasy-shaped duck webs, which has a surprising visual impact. The experiential claw machine in the metal-like entertainment space upgrades the experience of young customers. Dark red sofas, beds and bathtubs with design sense, all of these shooting props have successfully arranged a series of elegant compositions and close-ups. The bar, made of casual furniture imitating a director’s chair, invites people to indulge in a relaxing atmosphere that is very different from ordinary life. Hall No.1 simulates an European-style study, with classic bookcases and black and red seats overflowing with aristocratic heritage. In Hall No.2 we built a grotesque artist’s living room. The Dutch-style wall uses only pure colors and geometric images to express the purity of the design spirit. The unique inverted hall is full of drama effect, with bunny sculpture in the auditorium and hanging hat-shaped lamps adding funs to the space. Hall No.3 adopts light luxury and elegant arches of classical architectural elements to bring a sense of order. Black and white strips of carpet and seats embellish the quiet dark green space. Hall No.4 transforms into a futuristic surreal street. The bright neon shows the vitality of the city and the rich colors convey the style of fashion. Regardless of the video halls or the private rooms, we did not ignore the specific requirements of the acoustic environment. The wall coverings and ceilings in the venue are equipped with sound-absorbing devices, and personalized carpets effectively reduce noise. Comfortable seats, taking into consideration the high vision difference and viewpoint height, have ensured high-quality listening and visual enjoyment and enhanced the audience’s immersive movie watching experience. While satisfying the best viewing needs and leisure entertainment, the designer has completely changed the interactive viewing experience through landscaping in the hall. And by creating scenes ingeniously, the designer pays tribute to the filmmakers who have made countless laughter and tears on the screen and presents a perfect film-watching journey for movie enthusiasts. In addition to providing entertainment and popcorn, a cinema should also pay attention to the connection between audience and the art of film. Director Hou Hsiao-hsien has a saying, “There are many valuables in our life that is impossible to describe and difficult to classify, and they can’t even constitute any significant meaning. But, they just linger in my mind.” The space that the designer has created as a space director exactly expects to fill gaps between reality and fantasy and to create those incomparable valuables in people’s life.
RooMoo is happy to release our new Lecoq restaurant in Gubei, Shanghai. Gubei is a charming local district, welcoming families. Frequently, you will see parents taking their kids to school and hear some laughter from a child playing at the playground on the opposite of the street. It is in this context that we designed our restaurant, night bar, and grocery store. It sounds quite like a large place, but those three functions get all together in an 87 m2 shop with a 15,7 m2 kitchen. The real challenge was to try to mix those three functions and still let the customer understand that they could come to buy some groceries, at the same time eat dinner or lunch and still stay after for party at the bar. Each function should be understandable at any moments of the day without disturbing each other. For doing so, the external space of the storefront adopts a full-open symmetrical design, and a multi-openable mobile door design connects the indoor and outdoor spaces to the maximum extent. At the same time, different opening methods in different seasons are set, which is convenient for operators to create more Comfortable using scene flexibly. The considerable metal frame integrates the two entrances of the original storefront. The light and economical setting of the light warm grey metal iron mesh forms another transparent skin on the original load-bearing wall. In the rendering of natural light and night lights, penetrate to deduce its solid feeling. In the design of the internal space, to achieve its special functional requirements, we redesigned the entire mezzanine space, liberating the end of the mezzanine space. Through the overall opening of the glass curtain wall, the light overlapped the date. Indoor. At the same time, the mezzanine area of the backyard is reserved. The kitchen and the public toilet are placed on it to ensure that the space on the first floor is maximized for functional layout. we divided internal space by four: between front, back, left and right. It allows us to separate function but also to reinforce the design. We use mirrors to divide the space and enlarge it by using reflection. We mirrored the front with the back, and we reflected the left with the right. The front counter is the deli-counter arranging diverse displaying ways and storages when the back provides a bar service in a more cosy atmosphere with different material performances. To participate to the mirror reflection, we re-use the same language of wood sticks at the counter to bring a little “grocery touch counter” at the front, and we transformed those sticks into acrylic to deliver more delightful ambience by lighting it and turn it into a bar at the back. A staircase with spiral-covered leather armrests is located in the center behind the bar for the functional purpose to save space and to gain a focus sight behind the bar. The staircase leads to the kitchen and toilet. On the left and right of this space, you can find brick-walls with a unique pattern designed for this restaurant. Those recycled bricks carry with them a part of history. Every furniture and lighting have been bespoke at the exception of the chairs. You can find small mirrors placing randomly between the bricks and therefore playing with light and vibration during the day and night, bringing the feeling of hundred candles hanging and lighting your evenings.
RESTAURANTE Y CAFÉ FRESCO
프로젝트는 모던, 뉴트럴, 인더스트리얼이라는 세 요소에 깊은 영향을 받아 탄생했다. 골판지 알루미늄과 검은 고무 재질 바닥을 제외하면, 백색의 그림자와 물성 사이의 중립성, 흑과 백의 복조(複調)는 그 자체로 균형이 무엇인지 여실히 드러낸다. 시작부터 스튜디오는 브랜드에 대해 정확히 이해하고 있었다. ‘신선함’을 뜻하는 Fresco라는 이름에 걸맞게 신선한 제품을 사용하는 것을 넘어, 신선함 그 자체를 표현하는 무언가가 필요했다. 이런 고민의 결과로 스튜디오는 자연의 존재를 구현하며, 또 자연을 단지 도구로만 사용하지 않기를 바랐다. 50년대 디자인에서 영감을 받은 건축가는 파사드의 모듈 구성을 현대식으로 구성하기를 원했다. 프로젝트의 기초라 할 수 있는 인 와이어 메쉬는 단순하지만, 공간에 깊이를 만들어낸다. 식물로 둘러싸인 6개의 코어는 조명지지대로, 이는 공간을 더욱 생동감이 있게 만들어놓았다. 필로델드론, 양치식물, 칼라테아 등의 식물을 사용, 자연과 공간이 하나되는 것이 무엇인지를 보여주었다. HMA는 환경친화적 경험을 제안한다. 대부분 방문객들은 마법의 식물과 함께하는 듯한 느낌을 받는다.
TORI TORI SANTA FE
TORI TORI Santa Fe는 Esrawe Studio의 다섯 번째 일식 레스토랑 프로젝트다. 레스토랑은 멕시코 시티에 위치한 스튜디오의 건물 1층에 위치해 있어, 실제로 Esrawe Studio의 직원들도 자주 찾곤 한다. TORI TORI Santa Fe에 들어서는 고객들은 아주 놀라운 경험을 하게 된다. 바로 이 특징적인 건축 요소를 만나는 일이다. 일식집인 만큼, 일본 공예 기술의 미묘함, 또 절제에서 영감을 받은 단색의 고요한 분위기는 털가시 나무와 함께 프로젝트의 규모를 강조한다 이 요소 중 일부는 테이크아웃 존에 위치해 있고, 나머지 한 부분은 더 큰 크기로 테이블 위에 위치하며, 이 레스토랑의 큰 기둥들은 상황에 따라 조명으로 기능하기도 한다. 스시바로 향하는 벽은 멕시코인들에게는 무척 기하학적인 그래픽일 한자로 채워져 있다. 중심 공간 옆에는 철판 구이 테이블이 있는 테라스와 전용 식당이 위치하고 있다.
BEIJING DAXING INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Beijing Daxing International Airport is a new airport in the Daxing district 46km south of the city centre (20 minutes by express train). Developed to alleviate congestion at the capital’s existing airport, Beijing Daxing will be a major transport hub for the region with the world’s fastest growing demand for international travel and is fully integrated within the country’s expanding transport network. Initially serving 45 million passengers per year, Beijing Daxing will accommodate 72 million travellers by 2025 and is planned for further expansion to serve up to 100 million passengers and 4 million tonnes of cargo annually. Beijing Daxing’s 700,000m² passenger terminal includes an 80,000m² ground transportation centre offering direct connections to Beijing, the national high-speed rail network and local train services, providing a catalyst for economic development in Tianjin and Hebei Province. Recently assigned the airport code ‘PKX’ by the International Air Transport Association, Beijing Daxing sets a new standard in air transport services, serving the region’s growing population within a compact and efficient passenger terminal that is adaptable for future growth. Echoing principles within traditional Chinese architecture that organise interconnected spaces around a central courtyard, the terminal’s design guides all passengers seamlessly through the relevant departure, arrival or transfer zones towards the grand courtyard at its centre – a multi-layered meeting space at the heart of the terminal. Six flowing forms within the terminal’s vaulted roof reach to the ground to support the structure and bring natural light within, directing all passengers towards the central courtyard. Natural light also enters the terminal via a network of linear skylights that provide an intuitive system of navigation throughout the building, guiding passengers to and from their departure gates. Structural spans of up to 100m create the terminal's generous public spaces and allow the highest degree of flexibility for any future reconfiguration. The compact radial design of the terminal allows a maximum number of aircraft to be parked directly at the terminal with minimum distances from the centre of the building, providing exceptional convenience for passengers and flexibility in operations. 79 gates with airbridges connect directly to the terminal which can rapidly process the passengers of six full A380 aircraft simultaneously. Five aircraft piers radiate directly from the terminal’s main central court where all passenger services and amenities are located, enabling passengers to walk the comparatively short distances through the airport without the need for automated shuttle trains. As a result, the terminal’s compact design minimises distances between check-in and gate, as well as connections between gates for transferring passengers. This radial configuration ensures the farthest boarding gate can be accessed in a walking time of less than 8 minutes. Photovoltaic power generation is installed throughout the airport to provide a minimum capacity of at least 10MW. Beijing Daxing’s centralised heating with waste heat recover y is supported by a composite ground-source heat pump system incorporating a concentrated energy supply area of nearly 2.5 million m². The airport also implements rainwater collection and a water management system that employs the natural storage, natural permeation and natural purification of up to 2.8 million cubic meters of water in new wetlands, lakes and streams to prevent flooding and counter the summer ‘heat island’ effect on the local microclimate.
SHANGYIN OPERA HOUSE
This new opera house is located on Fenyang and Huaihai Road. The building has a great public entrance at the corner of these two important streets of the historical French district. Rather than a massive unique building the opera is built as a sequence of pavilions, following the rhythm and the height of the existing architecture including, on Fenyang road the existing recent building of the conservatory. The color and texture of the pavilions is respecting a brick pattern aspect. The opera house belongs to the Conservatory of Shanghai. It provides to students and teachers a toll for practicing Opera in real condition. It is also conceived to be a high standard public hall for music, with a high level acoustical quality and international standards scenographic equipment. An opera hall is a musical instrument. This one was to be conceived as a classical traditional one, respecting the acoustical qualities of the u-shape model. Nevertheless, it is designed in a new way to give good visibility from everywhere as well as good acoustic for both classical and romantic repertory through a variation of reverberation time. The dimensions of the u-shape form create an intimate relation between the artists, the orchestra and the public. This main hall contains 1,230 seats. The building provides all facilities as rehearsal and loges. The Opera has fours rehearsal rooms: the orchestra, the Chinese traditional music, the ballet and the choir. The lobby is an intermediate space between outside and inside. It is composed by two additional floors giving access to all the balconies in the auditorium each of them counts around 250 places. Being both a pedagogical equipment and a public performance hall, the use of the project is flexible. Inside the urban block formed with the others conservatory’s buildings. The opera house is linked with all others pedagogical facilities. When there is no performance, students may access directly to the main foyer and rehearsal hall. When a large public performance is presented, the whole building is reserved to them and a link connecting the loges with the existing building is provided to extend the capacity of welcoming the artists.

Green is the color accent as well as the ideological spirit of the design.
VYTA COVENT GARDEN
COLLIDANIELARCHITETTO는 Daniela Colli가 2009년 로마에 설립한 건축, 인테리어 디자인 스튜디오다. 다수의 수상경력이 있는 스튜디오는 현대와 사회 비전과 그 요구를 인테리어 디자인의역사적, 문화적 뿌리와 결합하며 과거와 미래를 혼합한 프로젝트가 특징이다. 그들은 가구, 인테리어 디자인 및 도시 건축에 이르기까지 설계 및 건설 단계의 세부 사항에 특히 주의를 기울이며 현장의 특성을 포함해 도전적인 실험을 지속한다. 현재 국제 비평가들로부터 호평을 받으며 카페, 레스토랑, 호텔 및 스파에 이르기까지 다양한 프로젝트를 수행하고 있다. Located in the East tower of Covent Garden market, a famous listedbuilding grade II monument and heart of swinging London in the 1960s,VyTA is part of a broader redevelopment programme that hastransformed the neighbourhood from a tourist destination into a lively,upbeat corner of the city. The vibrant and creative square looks to thefuture and attracts a cosmopolitan audience in search of exclusiveexperiences. The external dehor, rebaptized “VyTA Garden”accommodates up to 100 people. Set with tables and chairs andshielded by large white umbrellas, it represents an urban oasis whereconsumers can take a break from the heat and pace of the city. Covent Garden Market의 동쪽 타워에 위치한 VyTA CoventGarden은 이탈리아 요리와 새로운 스타일의 고급 음식을 제공하는레스토랑이다. 외부의 VyTA Garden은 100명까지 수용할 수 있으며,하얀색 파라솔은 코벤트 가든 안에서 쉴 수 있는 오아시스가 되어준다. 빅토리아 풍의 입구로 들어가면 장미나무 벽체를 비롯한 프로젝트의 상징적인 컬러들이 맞이한다. 황동 샹들리에, 유리와 귀금속으로 구성된 내부는 화려함이 특징인 전통 이탈리아 스타일을 표현하고있다. The interior design draws heavily on the Italian architecturalculture of the Sixties, from which it takes its refinement of theconstruction and decorative details, the conception of thespace as a living set, and the cocktail of elegance and irony inits geometric stylizations. The rhombus constitutes the matrixof the dynamic elements that characterize design, from themacro engravings of the boiserie to the decorative patternsof the polychrome marble floors.“VyTA Covent Garden is a wonderland of colours and shapes,designed to surprise, celebrate and entertain people who’slooking for a world of pleasure and emotions”, assertsDaniela Colli, founder of the firm. 60년대의 이탈리아 건축 문화로부터 영감을 얻은 프로젝트는 건축과 장식적인 디테일의 정교함, 우아함과 아이러니한 스타일의 혼합을 보여준다. 폴리크롬 대리석 바닥의 장식 패턴들은 역동적인 요소의 매트릭스를 형성한다. 마름모 꼴의 다색 대리석 바닥 장식 패턴같은 절충주의적인 실험은 VyTA Covent Garden의 기본적인 구성이다. DanielaColli는 “VyTA Covent Garden은 기쁨과 감성을 찾는 이들을 위한 놀라운 색깔과 환상적인 형태의 세계”라고 말한다. Two terraces, facing North and South respectively offer an unusual open-airexperience in London. The first, more intimate, is equipped with sofas, coloured metaltables and large flower-filled vases; the other, which is larger in size, features a longcounter and emerald green metal stools, and is visually projected towards the iconicCovent Garden dome and the vivid life of the square. VyTA Covent Garden의 2층은 코벤트 가든이 내려다보이는 넓은 야외 공간과 라운지 바 역할을 하는 두 개의 테라스를 갖췄다. 에메랄드 색상의 의자와 대형 꽃 화분으로 인테리어된 우아하고 세련된 테라스 바는 코벤트 가든의 철조 구조물의 색과 이어지면서 활기찬 광장의 풍경과 어우러진다. The lower floor, intimate and welcoming, houses severalrooms with vaulted ceilings, once used as storage areas forthe shops above. The polychrome marble floor, inspired bythe artworks of the futurist painter Giacomo Balla, and thedynamism of his design composed of over 7,000 rhombusesand half-rhombuses in marble, brings continuity and fluidityto the rooms, fragmented by the original structure.White lacquered vaults with rhombus and circle decorationsdominate the succession of private spaces and niches,wrapped in lacquered walls with friezes and mirrors thatamplify the space, accompanying the client on a discovery ofsurprising underground London. Enveloping linear sofas,velvet-upholstered chairs in burgundy and pink peony, andglass tables with brass finishes, complete the heterogeneousdesign of the rooms. 위층 상점들의 창고로 사용되었던 지하층은 아치형 천장이특징으로 미래파 화가 Giacomo Balla의 작품에서 영감을받아 마름모 꼴과 반 마름모꼴 디자인의 연속으로 추상적인 바닥의 디자인이 돋보인다. 황동 장식장이나 벨벳과 같은 고급 재료는 현대적이면서 고풍스러운 분위기를 자아낸다. 거울로 둘러싸인 공간은 보다 넓은 시야각을 제공하며좌석마다 벽체를 두어 프라이빗하게 사용하도록 했다.
Oxalis is located in 4L of Bohua Square, which is a French Restaurant. Shanghai Bohua Square is composed of a 60-story office tower and retail commercials. It is located next to the Shanghai Nature Museum. The Oxalis restaurant has a large terrace on the north side facing the Wusong River, which means there are great views. The roots of the “Oxalis” name can be traced to 2008, at Restaurant BRAS when Chef Jonas started to work with Michel BRAS where together with the kitchen team, he foraged herbs, plants & flowers in fields around the restaurant. Oxalis was one of the first herbs he foraged. Chef Jonas defines this restaurant as “Bistronomy”, which means the fusion of a pub and food. The interior design of Oxalis is inspired by the French farmyards and the chef's philosophy of food, rooted in the seasons and nature. So we use modern design language to tell a ‘Glowing Mysteries’, and move the French farmyard into the commercial space. The bright spatial tone, rattan, wood and white marble create a relaxing dining atmosphere for the restaurant. The dark color of the entrance bar area is different from the relaxed and bright color tone in the dining area. We designed a darker environment for drinking and talking in the bar area. The black bar over 4 meters long and the green hand-made bricks on the wall are matched with marble countertops and ceramic murals behind the shelves. Growing means going beyond the original. In the bar, dining area, and private room, we use the extension of the material as the growth image, extending the same material from the ground to the wall, from the wall to the top, from the inner space to the outer space. They are both conspicuous and harmonized. From Reception to the private dining room, the ubiquitous curved and rattan elements set a relaxed tone for the restaurant. The arc at the top is inspired by the curved roof of the greenhouse, which gives ‘growth’ tenderness and soft protection. The long couch in the middle of the main dining area uses rattan for the back and sides, while the cushion cover features a bright green fabric from Gabriel. The combination of the material and color of the plants also adds vitality to the dining space. Behind the log couch is the open kitchen where you can see the busy figure of the chefs from the perspective of each guest in the dining area. At the end of the dining area, there are two sets of seats under the curved rattan roof, creating a strong sense of inclusion from the back and top, which gives guests a more intimate dining space. At the end of the restaurant, there are two sets of seats under a set of curved rattan ceilings, creating a strong sense of inclusion from the back and top, creating a more intimate dining space. It is worth mentioning that we are fortunate to cooperate with young illustrator Wang Zhe. She was invited to create murals for Oxalis's 12-meterlong, 2-meter-high interior wall with the theme of “Reiki Plants and Animals”. Her style is lively and vivid, full of imagination, and coincides with the new French style defined by Oxalis. From the bar at the entrance to the private room, this series of paintings is presented in the form of ceramic murals, which are novel and chic, while creating a wonderful dining atmosphere. The plants in the picture are inspired by the common fruits and vegetables and herbs in Europe. These rustic outlines and colors make the picture full of vitality. The inconspicuous little insects make the picture more vivid, and the surprise is that the chef's cat also unexpectedly appears in the picture. Delicious food is always accompanied by fun, isn't it?
YOU LANG - SLOW YANGZHOU x XINHUA BOOKSTORE
Wutopia Lab is invited by client to renovate a Xinhua Bookstore and its annex room in the historic district of Yangzhou. The bookstore is redesigned as a multi-functional box for bookstore, hostel, exhibition, conference and tea house, which presents a possibility of connection of the past and the future of the city of Yangzhou. Yangzhou, with a history of 2500 years, used to be the most prosperous city in China. This Xinhua Bookstore in Guoqing Road opened on January 28th, 1949 was the first of its branch in the city. The former of the bookstore was the Jianguo Bookstore during the period of Republic of China and was took over after the liberation. The bookstore is gradually downsized and dilapidated 70 years after its opening so the government of Yangzhou and client are looking for a revival of the bookstore and hope it can bring a positive effect to the city renovation of historic district. The Weightless Box – A bookstore of screens. Based on the heavy grey color theme in Guoqing Road, Wutopia Lab would like to create an opposite space by using bright white color theme for the bookstore. By borrowing the idea of “Palace of Screens”, bookshelves made of white acrylic are installed as screens, splitting the space like a maze. The translucent acrylic material of the bookshelves creates a visual effect of fog, which provides a sense of floating, weightless experience inside of the bookstore. The lifting platform used to be logistics elevator is turned into a mobile living space, which is hidden behind the mirrored wall. The wall of the platform can also be used for exhibition. The third floor is a little collection space for limited books. The space is equipped with portable stainless-steel bookshelves and fixed bookshelves. Together with the mirror ceiling and black floor, the space becomes a boundary-less chamber. The two buildings behind the Xinhua Bookstore is turned into a hostel and shared lobby space. The one with two floors is the hostel with 12 bedrooms, which are small boxes within the large hostel space. The hostel is like a box of chocolate and you’ll never which bedroom you’re going to get. The building next to the hostel is the shared lobby space for group events. We are asked to not to change the façade, so the roof becomes our focusing point. In order to create a vibrant interior atmosphere, we chose to install colored transparent panels for the skylights. A poetic life is the treasure of the hostel box.
READING UNDER THE LAKE
Find a simple and tranquil, harmonious and undisturbed dwelling place in the world. It is desirable no matter what age it is, just as The Peach Blossom Spring describes the story of the fisherman going along a creek and accidentally discovering the Arcadia: “he suddenly chanced upon a peach Cleaning forest; keeping by the shore he moved a hundred paces; inside there were no other trees, and the fragrant grasses were fresh and beautiful; the fallen leaves were a mix of colors, and the fisherman found it strange; He continued onwards, wanting to find the end of this forest⋯⋯” This sudden enlightenment inspired the design of this copywriting. Two premises make Xiamen Zhongnan Real Estate differ from the traditional sales office: Firstly, the sales office building will be for the community’s sustainable use in the future. Secondly, except the reception entrance, most of the use area of the two-story building is located in the landscape. It is the primary task for WATERFROM DESIGN to give play to the characteristics of the sequestering and independent field, while the environment architecture of the three elements of sunlight, air and water is maintained. Source of tea, take a dip. It is expected that on the blueprint for community use in the future, we will build a landscape that is connected to the ground from the entrance of the first floor. In the past, an old tree always acted as the core of the gathering among the villagers, who exchanged daily information and built relationships. It is a habit and a collective memory to gather under the old tree. Tea is the tradition and essence of the old Xiamen culture. It is a ritual and life to boil water and brew tea for friends. It is not about the level of tea; drinking tea is a gesture of freeing and calming our mind. A glass tea pavilion surrounded by a lake is a prelude, just like the transparent container for the ritual on the tea table. The flowing stream of the river accentuates the quietness of the interior, which brings a sense of tranquility for people after they step in. The water flows across the long tea table at the center of the tea pavilion and runs through the glass curtain. When the tea is being brewed on the table, the sound of the water flows continually into the lake stretches all over the room. Although it is not the reappearance of Wang Xizhi’s description of drinking fine wine by the river, the running stream still brings refined pleasure as enjoyed by the ancient literati of China. Source of light, after passing a winding path. There is an opening on the floor next to the tea table, which is the ladder leading to the cave below the lake. Most of the legendary Arcadia discoveries begin with a hidden and unobtrusive entrance for outsiders who want to explore a peaceful and leisurely life in this place. Walking through this dim path, people can leave behind their stress and frustration, and calm their minds to find their essence in life. Then, with the guide of twilight at the end of the corridor, they can step into a different and open space hiding at the bottom of lake. With a sceneryof exceptional charm, the underground is surrounded by the circular atrium bringing light and water nourishing the tree in the bottom of the lake that stretches out to the sky. The scene resembles the simplest appearance of the heaven and the earth. The daylight makes the tree shadow wander indoor where people could leave behind their busy schedules and slow down. They could gather under the tree, enjoy the time together, observe the day and night and the four seasons. As they sip a cup of tea, they could feel themselves surpassing the order of the bustling city, and comfortable breath in the rhythm of life. Hiding in the lake, time makes things painted. When people look up, they could see the lake water over the roof. The reflection of water creates ever-changing shadows on the wall; the silent swaying beam seems like hiding under the lake. Quietly keeping the distance from the busy traffic on the ground, this space is free from the stress of daily life. In order to retain the detachment from the outside world, we chose warm, natural and simple materials, and maintained the pure texture and tactility. In the design process, we strived to avoid the form of excessive expression, and constructed an intuitive space with lines. Under simplicity,the users can perceive the natural light and shadow without interruption. The décor is like a long scroll on the wall, just as contemporary ink painting that is abstract and only outlines the text. There is no frustration in this space; the cooper plate that ages over time reflects the changes of people in the flow of time. The hand-made pottery that connects the veins of the soil, the fragrance of the wood, and the undulations of the rattan weaved tightly, all narrate the memories and stories of people with subtle details. They are like the microscopic expression of emotions, and the embellishment on the tea tables, and the preludes of cultures activities in the future. Heart of the city, nourishing trees is also cultivating the temperament. Whether it is a sales office or a community activity center in the future, we have removed excessively specific functional frameworks, and hope to create a space for dialogues so the individuals who are alienated by urbanization can find a place to gather around the tree and talk about their daily lives and build personal relationships with others. “He invited the fisherman to the house and entertained the fisherman with wine and delicious food. Others in the village heard of him, and all came to inquire him about the outside news.” In the Peach Garden, people are simple and honest, and live a harmonious atmosphere. We hope this scene will reappear here, which will become a precious life connotation in the community. No matter how bustling the outside world is and how the city is changed, find the entrance to the Arcadia and dive to the bottom of the lake, and you will always find tranquility from an unusual perspective.
A love song of Kangding pushes the town to the world, and the whole world came to the city. When a large number of people reside here, it is doomed that cultural blending will produce new fermentation here. Under the traction of the great era, the impact of foreign business is like a wave, and the market is covered step by step from the first line to the N line. Increasing the need for food, clothing, and shelter is often the first step to thinking and behavior change. In fact, starting from “HIYA CAFE”, it seems that we began to understand why he insisted on creating a local commercial brand; this is not just a successful business model, but more of a cultural guardian of the homeland. “Highland barley”, a kind of highland crops, and PINE is a deeper expression on this basis — evergreen tree. As a comprehensive business combining Tibetan/western food, coffee, baking and craft wine, I think this is also a kind of expectation and sustenance for cultural inheritance. If HIYA CAFE is about nomadic yearning, PINE must be the return of farming civilization. The relationship between life and land has always been inseparable. One side of the land and water, this side, is the wind, the fire, the soil, the wood, this is the worship of nature by people in Tibet, not related to religion, but the original belief of life. Therefore, starting from the brand, we refined the elements of wind and fire and soil and wood and integrated them with the unique totem culture of the Tibetan, forming the cultural logic keynote of the whole brand vision. The original building goes up and down like this small town. Whether it is sunken or elevated, it creates a basic level and progressive relationship of space, and forms the unique perception characteristics of each region. We let the brand logic naturally be derived from the entire spatial layout, representing the outdoor area of the land, front area with fireplace as the core, and the mezzanine space carrying the “Wind Horse post office” and the back area representing the wood system. If the construction of the space is the skeleton, then the use of the material is the skin; the carbonized black wood, the clay of the Tibetan land, the wall of the cloth, the grille of the cast iron, and the moderate skylight opening form a unique The feeling of space; the construction of space and the material divide the relationship between light and dark, with the change of time and season, the formation of different light and shadow effects;all of these seem to take people away from the real society, which is hard to distinguish between the real and the virtual. Ifit is a pilgrimage place, it all seems to have reached our impressions; but as a place of consumption, it seems too cold and rational; so we use the color system extracted from VI as much as possible. The Tibetan Lama Red is matched with the medium gray, under the mapping of the whole lighting system, the whole space will become more vivid, thus more temperature. Like a sudden rise in the mountains when heavy snow, in the glow of nature and fireworks, I listened to the wind and snow, feeling the leaves are silent, and one side of the world, boiled tea and warm wine, do not ask the world. How to explore the relationship between region and architecture, architecture and people? We always believe that the architectural space is the result of humanity’s exploration after the emergence of thinking in the region; and a firm idealist is to create one by one for you to see, fortunately, PINE is like this, we are also. 2019 is the fourth year of PINE’s existence in kangding and the first year of reconstruction after self-denial. We believe this is the dream of a watchman who keeps on going and never stops.

BOUNDLESS TEA HOUSE
Unbounded Xixi Tea House is located at the Hangzhou Xixi National Wetland Park. Xixi covers an area of 11.5km2, and here the water is around, and mountains are at four sides, also there are famous parks and old temples, besides there are many reeds and sand bars. All above make the park set city wetlands, rural wetlands and culture wetlands in one. Before reformed, the tea house is light-proof, close and old. Designers, Shen Mo and Tao Jianpu communicated with the owner and analyzed the tea house, hoping to break the tradition also keep the tradition, to make culture and the building together prosperous, as the client hoped-one place using scenery to explain guests. Designers keep traditional bearing wood, to do subtraction to the designing, to adopt big French windows, to expose bones of the building. A big glass box in the entrance means a intangible limit, not only integrating surrounding scenery with indoor space, but also increase lighting and permeability. Walking in the building gives out a interlacing sense between the true and the false, meaning “all behaviors tend to be bubbles.” A long the rock way into the space, you will find the end is a mini natural scenery echoing with outdoor scenery. When the sunshine goes into the space through glass, with swings of the light and the shadow, all things tend to be alive. Mottled tree shadows, quiet figures of Buddha are flexible and beautiful. At this time, time is extended without limits, like a walk meditation with quiet and abundant mind. The public reception area has its inspiration from a delicate white gift box. Outside the surrounding storage cabinets is tea display and sale space, inside is the tea storage space. Designers have planned the grids into “Wu” in complex font, highlighting the unbounded brand culture in the space. Another side of the front hall is set a mountain and water scenery, with an old chair, one candle lamp, a branch from surrounding trees above, so when the light is on, there will be winding shadows on the white wall. Xixi’s beautiful scenery can be extended in this indoor space, which reflects the unbounded idea. In order to make the facade free, white walls, glass faces, traditional wood pillars have some distances from each other, like communication in spirit, producing distance beauty. Scenery tea spaces in both sides of the yard is from the original storage spaces. The original spaces are gotten through, and an external expansion has been made, so putting a chair can see outdoor scenery at any time.

Tea space here is surrounded by bamboos, also integrated with some modern elements, so the old time and the now will have unbounded communication. Sitting at random will make you enjoy talking and tasting tea in a bamboo forest. In space design, pictures have been tried to keep blank, to use natural plants as decorations. All is from nature, making the space more pure and harmonious. A restaurant design idea is to put the “glass box” into the bamboo forest scenery, to make nature combined with the space. So tradition and modern things can be alive together, reflecting building and nature can be alive together.
FENGXIAN DISTRICT RESOURCES PLANNING EXHIBITION HALL
”The Original and Future of Architecture.” Fengxian Urban Museum, located on the east of “Jinhai Lake” in Fengxian District, was designed by the famous Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto, integrating the natural advantages formed from “Jinhai Lake’s” rich green water system with the poetic conception “a lot of pearls that are falling onto the dish together” in traditional Chinese culture. Fengxian Urban Museum, which consists of Fengxian Resources Planning Exhibition Hall and Museum, records the development of Fengxian District, and it is an open exhibition space with unique charm and affinity. “Design with Lights” The exhibition hall exhibits the architectural features and the artistic conception “various pearls that are falling onto the dish together” as the exhibits are scattered in the three-floor exhibition museum just like pearls. Also, light and urban scenery are introduced into the exhibition layout, with natural lights coming from the intervals on the façade into the hall to contrast finely with the exhibits, thus reflecting the original intention of the urban planning – to create harmonious coexistence between human beings and nature. ”Combine High-tech with Art” Different perspectives bring different viewing enjoyment. The exhibition hall combines the public, art, exhibition, leisure and other multipurpose spaces. Besides, the construction of the composite space allows the interior and exterior of the building to correspond with each other, adding new vitality to the space. Within the museum, artistic techniques and scientific means are used to demonstrate the beauty of urban planning. The dynamic “Flowers in Fengxian” PTFE ball linkage device shows that Fengxian is as beautiful as flowers throughout a year; and the “Data Flow Waterfall” truly records the development of the new city over the last decade. Of course, this museum also shows how planning and architectural art comes into being, and audiences cannot only communicate with masters through the “wall of design masters” but also enjoy the works of masters and the beauty of architecture and urban planning through the LED stereo sandbox. ”Extend to the Sea, Named after Sages” Travel through Time and Space to Enjoy the Millennium Collision between Modern Civilization and History in the Museum. Legends are introduced, and the layout fully reflects Fengxian’s local culture and planning history while “Fengxian elements” are introduced to make the exhibition unique.

ENSEMBLE OF LIGHTS AND SHADOWS
When we mention Xiamen, people often have the impression of an ideal life: a plain and exquisite elegant style, as well as the unique agility and vitality of a coastal city. Starting from the temperament of the city, this recreational space, which was transformed from the old site with a height of 4.25meters and a base area of only 45 square meters, interprets a simple and full attitude towards life in the way of architectural expression and ensemble of lights and shadows, and has a dialogue about the unique and beautiful city aesthetics. In order to solve the problem of connection between leisure area and restaurant on the second floor and make the best use of the site, the designer introduced the traditional cultural motif of hanging-feet building into it, and constructed a double space which was independent and connected with each other. The huge glass windows on both sides of the doorway greet the baptism of sunshine heartily, and the space becomes the stage of light, which sprinkles brightly and transparently, and reflects the light and shadows, playing interesting dynamic rhythm and carving delicate atmosphere with long lasting charm. The partition space supported by three black circular steel pipes is guided by stairs with thin black steel plates on both sides. It creates a lightweight sense of volume and adds a sense of enclosure, which makes the space scale more appropriately. Between the dining elevator and the hanging-feet building, the light wooden card seat backplane is ingeniously designed. At the junction of the seat and the light wooden backplane, the black steel backplane and the warm light belt are added. The whole and rhythmic visual system is coherent, and the ergonomic design is combined to provide a warm and comfortable leisure experience with meticulous and subtle zones. Black steel leather seats, round and delicate glass chandeliers, the abstract Go device which implies the change of light and shadow at the corner of stairs; the deliberately retained stairs running through the old black sand marble wall at the second floor, gives the place a quiet and flexible atmosphere with a concise sense of line and appropriate proportion. With the changing lights and shadows and the different shapes of the window design of the hanging-feet building, when you lean against the fence to overlook, the chic interest arises spontaneously. Under the interweaving of light and shadow, reality and illusion also become blurred, so the viewer seemingly encounters his own innermost being happily.
Jinan Bocuishan Sales Center
This Equilibrium is the great root from which grow all the human actings in the world, and this Harmony is the universal path which they all should pursue. Let the states of equilibrium and harmony exist in perfection, and a happy order will prevail throughout heaven and earth, and all things will be nourished and flourish.” This quote from the Book of Rites reflects Confucius’ view on the doctrine of the Mean. It represents the ideal state of harmonious interplay between yin and yang, between toughness and softness, and between humanity and nature. In their design of the Jinan Bocuishan sales center, Yi Chen and Muchen Zhang try to integrate culture and art into the space using pure and natural techniques of expression for harmony with nature based on the ancient idea of “rites”. They’ve created an ordered, graceful and Zen-style space imbued with Chinese culture as it echoes the history of ancient Shandong, the poetic charm and architectural style of Han Dynasty, and the essence of Eastern culture. They strive to interpret the Eastern style with their creation and build a spiritual home where the heart can be cleansed and return to a poetic state. This has given rise to an artistic space design rooted in Eastern culture for personal reflection. The dynamic and layout of the space follows the laws of nature, serving as an answer to the traditional Chinese aesthetics of harmony between man and nature. In the traditional shape of the Chinese character “回”, the pathways are symmetrically set across the central axis, as the main and supporting pathways, solemn and tranquil in a seamless pattern, enclose the overall space. The axisymmetric design and the pillar array standing on either side add to the vertical rhythm and horizontal smoothness of the space. The suspended timber frame and the grilles that reach the floor, which are inspired by the freestanding gate tower in Han Dynasty, are strategically arranged to act as partition walls for the functional areas. As light and shadow are intertwined across the space, the pillar array, serving as the focal point of the spatial dynamics, combines both ancient and modern aesthetics and demonstrates the unique eastern ideas of respect and ceremony. Daylighting is maximized in the space. Interlaced into an ethereal pattern, rays of light breathe life into the space just as the subtle interplay of water and ink animates a traditional Chinese painting. The natural transition from the interior to the outdoor water garden perfectly blends the two together, giving rise to an impressive Zen vibe that lightens up the solemn Eastern style. From point to line to façade of the space, either concrete or abstract, exudes an exquisite eastern aesthetic characterized by simplicity, serenity and impermanence. Contemporary visual language is applied in pursuit of Chinese spiritual traditions and continue “image in meaning” in the design. Each visual element is a unique spiritual and poetic expression, which responds to our ever-present longing for aesthetic satisfaction and desire for sentimental resonance. The exquisite combination between spatial perception and natural spirituality, between traditional sentiment and contemporary aesthetics, serves as an attempt at inheritance and sublimation. Drawing on the essential traditional artistic conception of Eastern culture, it develops and advocates a high-quality Eastern lifestyle and a harmonious modern design. Bearing in mind the functional requirements, the designers transform the physical space into a spiritual and sentimental retreat, which allow visitors to savor the unique poetic and artistic meaning in simplicity and tranquility. They transcend the boundaries between tradition and modernity, between dream and reality, to unite aesthetics with life. They provide people living a busy life in the hustle and bustle of modern cities with a spiritual home, where they may embrace nature and their true selves in an artistic and well-balanced space.
