On 23 May 2016, the world’s first Rose Museum officially opened to the public. This is the same day as the start of the 2016 World Federation of Rose Societies (WFRS) Convention. “The Rose Museum aims to create a new architecture for China, in which history and modernity, art and architecture blend,” explains NEXT architects China partner Jiang Xiaofei. For this unique building NEXT Architects China designed a solid museum volume covered by a silk-like skin of stainless steel with a papercut pattern of Chinese roses.
This art space takes the metaphysical blank space in abstract paintings by contemporary Chinese artists as its starting point. It uses natural light, simple black strokes and translucent materials to create a fuzzy, dream-like physical realm. The project is located within Beijing’s 798 Arts District, as a renovation of a former factory, originally build in the 1970’s during Mao Zedong’s Great Leap Forward.

Coco Chanel said, “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” Through a new understanding of fashion, the designers used the principle of “less is more” to interpret a different kind of fashion. The whole space is unified with concise, smooth and fluent lines running through the interior, bringing a refreshing and natural breath. The minimalist furniture reflects the wisdom of design and humanistic spirit everywhere. By thinking differently, the designers embedded a tea table into the sofa, and applied irregular cabinets which have graceful arcs. The storage design is another highlight, the cabinets of the living room, the bed of the study room and the TV wall of the bedroom and others are ingenious.

The idea of the design is to create a space about flavors that allows people to peacefully enjoy wonderful food from the bustling city. Inspired by In Praise of Shadows by Japanese writer Junichiro Tanizaki, the architect tries to explore the connection between taste and vision to create a space that is “melting dimly, dully back, deeper and deeper”.
Life is like a drama, during work-time, we’re trying our best to play various roles with different people and things in each scene, after returning home, what we want is to enjoy a stage that only belongs to ourselves.
Most of the houses nearby are decorated in a luxurious style, while after communicating with the owner, the designers made a new attempt through an advanced and restrained design technique. With the origin of texture as the design concept, they tried to convey the owner’s desire for an original state of life by different textures, and let him return to a comfortable and natural living environment.
The concept of Xifeng Bridge is the spread-open wings of a phoenix, which is an auspicious bird and a symbol of peace and harmony. The ancients believed that phoenix would fly over if the world is in peace and prosperity. The oracle of “Feng” is like the oracle of wind, meaning the omnipresent and spiritual power of wind.”Huang” is pronounced like the “Emperor” in Chinese, meaning the supreme power. Therefore, phoenix is also the symbol of Chinese imperial power, and is usually paired with dragon, which is a symbol of lucky and harmony.
