What’s beautiful about architecture is that it’s a way of living. You’re always learning, everything you see, everything you live, everything adds up and ends up in whatever you do in architecture. One project brings you to the next and with every project you get more tools and you get more skills for the next, and I think that’s fascinating.
With architecture every time you do a project you learn new things, you meet new clients, new materials and new spatial things…everything brings you up to the next and I think that’s very encouraging.
Red, yellow and blue are the colors that win huge popularity for traditional royal favor. Instead of the more chosen red or yellow, designers deliberately set the spatial tone with blue, as its quiet elegance and deep sensibility perfectly convey the owner’s state of contentment, spiritually other than materially.
Widely used gray-level materials, such as exposed cement, gray-black veneer, together with colors of low-brightness and low chroma, are seen in the structural space, showing imperfect perfection and irregular order. Perfect or not, it completely depends on the standard in one's heart. So does the earthly troubles and the inmost peace!
— Design description —
The entrance is extended to the restaurant, where a large blue wall in the shape of Chinese character “ㄇ" forms uneven changes of shadeswith irregular layers of bumps in the lacquer surface. The partition wall is thickened symmetrically, which is not only the spatial division, but also the spiritual boundary, as if earthly life and pure land are separated by a line.

Technically speaking, the rationality of modernism is the main axis in the overall planning of space; while from the perspective of spiritual essence, it interprets "Zen" and "Wabi-Sabi" based on Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism; where simplicity of Song Dynasty aesthetics is integrated in the treatment of details.
Habitation, should not just be the designer's arena, but the expression of habitants' deep inside.
