It is stronger than any adjective you can think of. It is a sense of complete harmony, which can be felt without knowing, without conditions, without judgment, and without choice.

When the architectural structure extends the life of light and shadow in vision, we are also trying to influence visitors through these changes in form, or to convey a philosophical concept through this space. But for the fast-paced modern society, it becomes difficult to settle down to experience such simple things. The strong emotional impact of space on users, and the Internet era, which is constantly commercialized, has gradually contributed to an incompatible tone.

If you walk along the interior of the space or go up the steps to the left or right, between the corridors, you will be deeply plunged into a meditation-like state, and a world of concepts can be seen everywhere within the gray wall.

This project received strong support from Party A, and the consensus on aesthetics and design concepts also laid the foundation for the smooth implementation of our design. We collectively believe that design power is an attempt to inject continuous vitality into the soul of architecture, and frequent “demolition” and “construction” to attract the flow of people will not make a building or brand concept last long. Rather than being intriguing, long-term stability is more meaningful. Compared with the blind accumulation of materials, the effect of a single material through the structure is more in line with our concept. It is a kind of hypocrisy that peels off the surface, and the ideal intimacy of honesty and honesty realizes the relationship between the building and the user. Dialogue naturally.

The “spiritual hall” in this concept relies on the concrete construction method to produce a more temporally traced spatial texture, and this incompleteness and a sense of skeletal framework envelop the respect and frankness of sincere emotions. Because in any kind of expression, the real thing is always the most moving. At the same time, what it reveals is not limited to the sense of ritual and dignity that the structured light and shadow give people. The intricate changes in movement and the processing of light also give this “incomplete” beauty another meaning, like the companionship of emotions. And guidelines.

When the building is independent of the natural environment, it will inevitably be created with a more humane vitality. The texture of light and architecture resembles endless life, and also seems to hide square inches of heaven and earth. The space flickers light and shadow, roughly as simple as simple, metaphors love, music, poetry, dreams, these inner things that can only be experienced by feeling. They are magnified by different emotions in a state of unawareness. Just like a certain day, the visiting couple remembered everything that happened here as eternity.
