Located on the west bank of xianghu lake, the project was like a floating "square box" which connected by the sculpture with the park entrance. Clear and restrained design language and extremely simple materials create a quiet and powerful architectural environment.
There is rhythm in the music and poetry, and the space also has its unique texture, which continuously creates sense of beauty. LSD uses the simple black, white and gray as the main tone in the interior, and such strong hierarchical rhythm create the beauty with different levels.
The reception hall on the first floor is an extension of the relationship between the water court and the building. The transparent glass is derived from the building material, the overall color reflect each and show the different levels through texture. The designer intends to create a "transparent box" that is completely integrated into the environment during the day and has no boundary with the water court, while the second floor as the main body floats on the water and the night is like a warm light on the water bank.
The hall on the second floor connects the exterior annular ramp of the video and audio room and the interior. and also follows the extension and interaction between the large space indoor and the natural landscape outdoor. The designer always tried to extend the space by shadow, color and material, which are relied on each other as well has own characters.
