Appreciation towards S.E.E.D haus (mail: seedhaus2016@gmail.com) for providing the following description:

项目旨在重新诠释《路易斯·I. 康-光与空间-light and space》一书中“没有自然的光线,房间不足以称之为房间”这句名言,顾名思义,光线照亮了空间,而空间内部的情绪则是由光线的强弱来控制的,因此,光线赋予了空间意义。

This project is designed to reinterpret the meaning of the sentence, “A room (or an architectural space) is not a room without natural light” in 『Louis I. Kahn — Light and Space』. Namely, the light lights up a space and the internal mood is created by the intensity of light. Therefore, the light provides a meaning to the place.

Holistic harmonization

S.E.E.D haus的建筑师们认为脱离了自然环境的建筑设计是没有意义的,本项目的设计从建筑与自然和谐共存的角度出发,旨在在最大程度上利用自然之美展示出空间中的感性情绪,让人们通过光线感知到时间与周围环境的变化。这个过程将赋予空间独特的性格,人们对空间的感知也将在光线的变化下重塑,进而获得丰富且有趣的空间体验。

This project will be meaningless in the design perspectives without the help of the surrounding nature as its reason for being was not in the architectural design. Rather, it started from the consideration of a harmony or coexistence between building and nature. We wanted to create the spatial sensibility by utilizing the beauty of nature as much as possible, and hoped that people could feel the changing time and environment through the light. This process would make this architectural space unique and people could experience the pleasure of space that would be destined to be reborn all the time.

As for the building materials, we started from the consideration of shadows of light. The light creates shadows, exists by them, and we can sense it through the difference. With regard to the entire mass, we intended to maximize the effect of light and shadow with the louver to feel the changes of light, and it would also allow us to connect the surrounding nature visually at the same time. That is the flexibility of louver as a medium connecting the building to the nature.

We applied zinc roofs that were painted manually one by one to have slightly different looks, rather than being monolithic, and to create a harmony with the nature when they were combined together.

项目的初衷是为了前来参观Maiim Vision Village的游客们提供一个聚会休闲的场所,例如在建筑的一层用餐、饮茶等。此外,建筑还与周边的休闲绿地相连,因此,人们不仅可以在室内休憩也可以在室外进行娱乐活动。

This building was designed for the visitors of Maiim Vision Village. For instance, visitors can eat food and drink tea on the first floor. It is also connected to the nearby playground so that many people can use both the inside and outside of the building.

The second floor is for lecture and concert and it is designed in a way that performers (or lecturers) would not encounter with visitors. As it has many external spaces, however, they can feel the nature to the fullest. Also, the outer space of the building serves as a middle zone where the nature meets the structure.
