Guangzhou based renowned lifestyle store brand TFD (The Fashion Door) is adding a restaurant to its business, Leaping Creative believes that the space should indicate the brand’s fashion sense and at the same time provide its customers with an unordinary dining experience.
Rather than following the popular trend of industrial or Nordic interior style in China, Leaping Creative is inspired by fashion designers and their love for black and white as well as their trick of using dots, lines and planes. We aim to create a minimalist, intriguing dining space.

The case is meant for restoring the prosperity of a local temple. During our design, we find that its landscape, centuries-old history and the passion of local people require a temple which is magnificent but remains noble to reshape the memory of the site. In order to design the temple, we referred to plenty of historic files and chose some of the most philosophical and aesthetical “Architecture examples of Tang Dynasty ” in which ,no matter the profound eave or the piles of brackets all show the magnificent of the construction and the beauty of style. Furthermore, the nature environment and the manmade garden, the variety of landscape, which enable the temple to melting into the life of local people and heritage the religions tradition and producing positive effect.

Meteor Cinema is a 2-storey cinema located in a shopping mall in Guangzhou. A meteor is an astronomical observation where a bright trail of light appears in the night sky when a meteoroid enters the Earth’s atmosphere. This beautiful scene only appears in the sky for a very brief moment, and then vanishes without leaving any trace behind.
The concept of meteor shower continues through the auditorium. In each of the auditorium, the designers have created a different portrayal of meteor shower, enabling the audience to have a new experience when they watch movie in different auditoriums, Image Courtesy © One Plus Partnership Limited & Jonathan Leijonhufvud
