Yi She Mountain Inn in Beijing, China by DL Atelier

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Article source: DL Atelier 

Henry David Thoreau said, “City life is millions of people being lonesome together.” Like all the mega-cities, it’s getting increasingly easier in Beijing to feel the loneliness in a vast crowd. People are mentally polarized between the obsession of exquisite urban chaos.

60 km away from Beijing lies Ming Dynasty Tombs, surrounding it are the serrated mountains and loosely aggregated villages where tourists can find our inn. Our client wanted to reshape it into a retreat for exhausted people and an emotional place to restore the personal connections between friends, families or even strangers.

Yuhua • Phase IV ShowFlat in Henan Province, China by FAN Life

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

Article source: FAN Life

Being elegant and dignified is not only a matter for a small number of elites, it is the common responsibility and mission of the general public. To better record the life of elites, the designer avoids the single decoration style of piling up complex colors. Instead, concise expression which matches the gentle, modest and self-disciplined temperament of urban elites is adopted.

BEI Function Space in Beijing, China by neri & hu

Monday, November 27th, 2017

Article source: neri & hu

Neri&Hu rehauls Opposite House’s BEI restaurant into “BEI Space” a multipurpose function room serving the increasing demand for meeting and event spaces in Beijing. While the typical function room in a hotel tends to be situated in dark enclosures with no natural light, the given site actually has an existing skylight. To fully utilize this asset, the design challenge becomes how to bring in as much light as possible to the space and how to subdue any sense of being underground. The resulting design concept, first, creates a landscape zone that is bathed in light, and second, inserts within it a luminous glass box.

Bamboo Forest on the Roof in Beijing, China by V studio

Friday, November 24th, 2017

Article source: V studio

The location of this project is very special — on the roof of a huge shopping mall. Our client wants to build a small building here for recreation and receiving friends. This shopping mall is located in the CBD of the city. Due to its huge size, there are various forms of business in it, including shopping, catering and entertainment, while its consumers are from all classes of the society. It is extremely prosperous and busy here, and it is full of attraction and fun. Our design is inspired by this unique field condition — to create a place which is totally different from the noisy surroundings. The effect we aim to achieve is that, when visitors pass the noisy busy streets and arrive at the roof, they get into a pure space, which is in great contrast with the surrounding spaces.
