“In gap of the sunshine from the continuous rain, looking down from the mountain pass, little forest seems to be sleeping under the steam, and the water vapor in the soil is scrambling to emit.” This is the most impressive sentence in Little Forest, and you can feel the breath of nature across the screen.
People who have lived in cities for a long time are trapped in a small space, and they have been far away from nature, but their inner yearning for the idyllic life grows quietly. On this basis, the living aesthetic space MOOLIS comes into being. It is like a window of urban people, from which people can glimpse the beauty of the natural world and the abundance that aesthetics brings to life.
Miss Mo often discusses with customers about clothing design, dressing, everything related to beauty. The combination of the first and second floors can also carry small clothing SHOW, revealing the diversity of space in details. Floor-to-ceiling windows on the east and north sides break the aesthetic boundary between inside and outside. Even if it changes in four seasons, the space can enjoy plenty of light. Similarly, the long table not only has the single option of dining. The venue also carries multiple functions such as birthday parties, salons, and handicrafts.

The owner is obsessed with different personalities and high-quality coffee. The spacious island meets her expanding coffee layout and interprets her understanding and preferences for coffee. In addition, the region emphasizes compound diversity. Relying on customized activities, it brings guests a sense of space experience, and realizes the exploration of quality of life and even aesthetics in the coffee.

Stepping through the box full of sense of ceremony, MOOLIS is like a shy girl, showing up slowly. The tropical plants on the side are full of vitality, and nature has thus entered the threshold without barriers, which is in sharp contrast with the stereotypes brought by modern buildings. A gleam of light pours out from above the green plants, and the clever trapezoid structure carries a compound-function stepped classroom. Here, people read, meditate, drink tea, train, watch movies, do handicrafts, etc. The staggering ladders add N possibilities to the space, blurring all orders.

The “box” on the second floor has been decomposed and reconstructed on the facade, making the space penetrate into each other and taking a new three-dimensional shape, which can enjoy the natural light and is in an independent and interactive relationship with the field below.

In fact, any corner can be said to be the epitome of MOOLIS, because they are not a bunch of rigid things, but a living organism. Whether it is a plant derived from nature, or a lot of elegant soft furnishings, or the preset and connection of each scene, they are constantly supplemented and perfected, thus becoming an increasingly perfect whole. On the one hand, it presents the master’s interpretation of life aesthetics; on the other hand, it helps people find the secret side of their inner heart.
In this space dominated by design and aesthetics, you can sit on the floor or read in a medieval chair, explore the depth of thought in the books, broaden the boundaries of life, being lazy and focused.

The office consulting room is hidden in a hazy glass box, which can maintain interaction with the external space on the premise of protecting the privacy of visitors. What connected to it is another secret place-the deliberately reserved balcony. A wide variety of green plants take root and grow here to compete with the beautiful scene.
The owner said, “If you can’t go to nature, just let nature walk into the room.” Starting from the lifestyle, MOOLIS carries spatial functions, conveys life aesthetics, and stores memories. It is like a “refuge” to soothe emotions and hides the best way for us to get along with this diverse and colorful city. As Rousseau said in Walden, “If an atmosphere is created and a way is described for us to examine and practice, this is the highest level of art.”
