Zen is a realm of life and also an experience which can equip you for the whole life.
Zen is a mundane meditation, which emphasizes you to master inner peace. “Void” (in Buddhism) reaches the highest realm. Our hearts should not be attached to anything. Since the new realm appears, mind and matter have combined emotion and object into one.

Located in Jing’an, Shanghai on a tree lined street, Tribeca is a New York style gastro pub. The interior has a lightness and a freshness, which is a departure from the surrounding dark and industrial bars and restaurants.
Linehouse wanted to create a strong distinction between the existing and the new; a white datum was inserted into the space which operates as a shelf for display at high level and wraps the bar with a perimeter of shadowless bulbs suspended below. This new insertion contrasts to the existing concrete shell, which was left in its raw state.

According to an ambitious plan, the Jinshan Modern Agricultural Park, located on the southwestern outskirts of Shanghai, is being transformed into a suburban park with composite functions. Enhancement of the public space in the core area of the park is the pilot project for initiating this transformation. In the conception of design, the veranda, an essential element in traditional Chinese gardening, has been selected as the theme of the design. In the park, a veranda extending in the east–west direction links up several isolated agricultural tourism projects on the north side of the freeway. This veranda will be expanded farther westward and will pass through the eastern landscape mound to be integrated with other tourism projects towards the south via a pedestrian bridge. The landscape mound on the south side of the veranda will isolate the park from the noise and sight of the freeway, and the freeway-facing side of the park, together with the veranda, will form an extended earthscape, thereby ensuring high identifiability along the freeway line.

The project name takes the same name of a HK movie, which is about chasing dream. For the owner, this name stands for youth, vitality, mutual-aid and dream.
The owner has a strong desire for communication, so he requests that the design style of the whole office space should be communication-encouraging, funny and informal, and he hopes the boundary between working and living within this space to be weakened. Thus, the designer takes container as the design concept, through using industrial elements such as cement, handmade decorative tile, white cement brick and black iron creates an office space full of fun. A wall painting with a big smile warms everybody’s heart and tells everyone to smile to life.

This is a factory renovation project. Rebuilt into an office in its latest renovation, the old factory experienced several times of renovation after its construction in 1970s. Unlike other factories with large space, the factory doesn’t have a big space span while the height is normal showing no special features. However, a 100 square meters backyard is quite impressive. Based on the owner’s requirement, designers need to reconstruct it into a Zen Chamber.
