"Architecture is really about well-being.
I think that people want to feel good in a space."
- Zaha Hadid
Inspired by the feature of ancient Chinese architecture, which has an exceptional emphasis of building arts and aesthetic implications, this project is presented in an artistic way that combines both traditional Chinese and contemporary cultures seamlessly by presenting their common features, including textures, layouts and aesthetic standards.
The blend of wooden and marble textures that is often used in both Chinese and modern style creates an elegant interior and keeps a consistent style in the whole building. Black, grey and white colours are mainly used with clean-lined designs to add a modern feeling as well as make the interiors look more formal. The elegance is presented in a calm and peaceful way, and not giving people a feeling of “showing off”. This feeling complies the unique pursuit of “ambience” in Chinese aesthetic concepts.
