In the project, Shen junwei comes up with the concept “ Light & Shadow ” at the very beginning. However, this concept has never changed for almost 10 months during the project. The light made the simple space variousand the illusions of the 3-D space appear as well. That is to say, the light lets the space changeable and mysterious. The trees provide people space to live in. So, in the relationship between human and nature, the trees play an important role. The Chinese parasol trees, which are big and tall, always catch people’s attention. In China, the Chinese parasol trees are associated with the phoenix who is the queen of the bird, because the phoenix enjoys perching on the Chinese parasol trees. Hence, the Chinese parasol trees symbolize the noble place as well. Nowadays, people often say that when you plant a Chinese parasol tree, the phoenix will come surely. So, in ancient time, the reason for the rich to plant Chinese parasol tree is not only for its vitality, but also for its propitiousness.
设计构想 | Design concept
WOO TUNG BLOOSSOM takes the aesthetics of contemporary life as its core. It’s a collection of space which contains furniture, floriculture, coffee, casual dining, sado, salon, exhibition, aesthetic commodity and aesthetic life. It is expected to remold Chinese aesthetic dimension by taking up the missions of pursuers for high-end lifestyle, designers in advance, refactors of aesthetic life as well as planners of public culture space, and finally become a creative base which can gather the crowds, surge the thoughts, and make the life style competitive. It aims to create a place from inner desire for pursuers for delicate lifestyle. For one thing, in addition to home and office, it is the third space with knowledge, beauty-appreciation and lifestyle combined perfectly. For another, it is an everlasting progressive form and a multiple medium, expecting an endless supply of design and originality, designers and works, ideas and products to be inspired, published and focused due to this platform.

The whole interior space is arranged like trees, consisting of tree-trunk-like poles and roofs similar to branches and leaves. The light shadow diffuses naturally as it should do without clear distinction between internal and external. Indoor leads to the outdoor directly, just as yard is part of our home, naturally and bringing out the best in each other. The transparent glass curtain wall faces to the public areas directly, which can show the products in front of the passers-by. The linear design of the internal wall imitates the natural impression of tree mixing, with sunshine, life and vitality, youth and concept of modern style design mingled here. The design and high-end customization are successfully unified, sending out a kind of irresistible charm. Texture of Natural Material: wood, cement, diatom ooze, stone, iron etc.

Time-space Gate (Hallway and window)
Stepping on the stone steps, we can see the main entrance of WOO TUNG BLOOSSOM first. The transparent light, shining from the invaginated black stone cave and both sides of the door, is attracting visitors all over the world, just like a time-space gate taking you to another living space.

People and landscapes (Café bar, little theatre, tea art, garden café, and exhibition areas of life aesthetics commodities)
Under the shade, facing to the scene of “Where light and shade pursue their course”, you can feel the beauty of quiet about the ‘big faint in the city’. We have to acknowledge that it’s really a good place to hold marketing and to party. The little space is suitable for gathering crowds, without a feeling of uneasiness because of the blend of the outdoor scenery. It really looks like a private messuage, where we can not only have a rally for fun, but also sit alone to listen to the wind. Either movement or quiescence, it can be both scenery. Seeing from indoor along the promenade extending to the yard, and then to the wall, the distant view outside the wall is really like a beautiful painting. By the means of view borrowing, the designer borrows the distant landscapes and makes it a part of the interior landscapes. Through the hillside garden on the second floor, we can get to the third floor. And the wooden divisions on the second floor stretch up, leading people up naturally.

A square with light ( Salon, Exhibition, Information Station, Opening VIP Room, Teahouse——Peach Blossom Castle, Bamboo Room)
The square provides people a space for party and relaxing, also, it helps people get rid of noisy city.Like the square in Roman, people regarded it as a market, a public place for gathering, announcement and celebration. Stepping to 3F, there is a square with light which is shining across the interlaced branches. All you can see is the white color of the light, in which clean scene can help you to pure your soul. Today, WOO TUNG BLOOSSOM is being redefined——Culture exhibition and Information Station offer all customers a quietspace to take a rest. With a peaceful mind, the customers immerse themselves into the sea of information. Meanwhile, they can communicate with themselves and friends, even with the designer.
