We challenge three issues.
1.Fusion of the Chongqing culture and Japanese culture.
2.Floor plan, fusion of the characteristics from Chongqing city.
3.Fusion of the Feng shui culture.
We found a lot in common of Chongqing culture and Japanese culture. For example a folding fan, embroidery, a garden lantern, Classic screen Pattern, Traditional wooden structure…
We decided to reflect them in the design detail. Fan-shaped ceiling louver, the ancient wooden structure modern representation. Many of the partition is using the classic pattern, and silhouette representation. Large glass portion facing the outside,inspiration from lanterns.
Chongqing City is a natural rich a lot. The Yangtze River and Jialing River, is confluence points. There are many peaks and valleys, the height difference is special. River’s flow is reflected of the operation line plan. And Mountain View is reflected of the elevation plan. Then, zoning plan in collaboration with the feng shui master. We cover the mental thing of people in China.
