The Italian word “Baita” refers to a place that allows climbers to have a break and regain their strength. This café located in Vanke Lake Songhua Resort is appropriately denominated as “Baita Italia” due to its remarkable place at the right beginning of the town center of the resort facing the mountain and the ski tracks, and its role in the cultural communication between Vanke and Italy.

This project is located in Shanghai, on East Nanjing road’s Century Square, the most famous and glamorous pedestrian street in the “heart” of the city center.
The essence of this street is its commercial status, which was historically developed as a link between East and West, connecting directly the port with the city, therefore used as the principal trading platform, becoming a cultural and social active axis.

This project is located in a sales center with classic style. When we live in the city for so long, it is easy for us to feel numb and ignore the beauty of natural scenery. The fast-paced information era also makes people ignore daily life. We are open to the possibilities of free and flowing space, regardless of architecture limitations. Stars, mountains, rivers, snowflakes, or sweet chocolate are our most cherishing childhood memories which remind us of the importance of living condition by abstract forms.
