Design Practice Location:
This modern simple building with two floors is part of a culture-tourism project, composed of spa hotels, villas and a high-rise zone. Ji Cheng’s book The Craft of Gardens – The Classic Chinese Text on Garden Design includes rich aesthetic concepts and in many ways this building is very similar to the scenery described in that book, Half on shore, half set on the water, with all sides open, the building is transparent; to the east visitors can overlook the mountains while to the southwest there are winding river views. The floors are divided into different functional areas. The first floor is a club and includes a reading area, fitness area, parent-child area, catering and other leisure and entertainment zones. The main function of the second floor is commercial, including a negotiation area, signing area and office area for business.
