Among the lush greenery, a white house disappeared on the side of Xincheng Road. In sharp contrast with the building groups facing each other, No. 5 Forest, it is quiet in the urban nature.
At the entrance, in the organic sequence, trees are standing, and a lot of “planting” is used to create, trying a “natural restoration” method to return it to a more simple state, forming a landscape that can connect with nature interior space.
From the outside to the inside, through the forest, the simple and white building blocks, mottled shadows of trees, project the traces of time, and the joyful rhythm of life, they are shadowy, they are ups and downs.
Different from traditional commerce, in the definition of No. 5 Forest, we began to try to explore new space use functions, or cafes, or Show venues, or podiums, theaters, exhibitions… the same spatial form points to different Functional attributes.
In a rectangular white box, the circle is placed, breaking the single geometric form, liberating the familiar walking path, and creating a rich flow of movement, without constraints, free in and out.
The steps are cascading for easy walking and sitting.The literary image of “Evening talk around the fire stove” is presented vaguely and clearly through the concept of typology.
The bar area is the center of the main axis of the space. A circle of concentric circles extends outwards, and three narrow boxes are interspersed. Several windows are opened to the confined space. People come and go, shuttle between them, and cut out business. In time, various characters move in a hurry or walk slowly.And the light from the patio, when appropriate, pouring down, contains a certain spirituality unique to the field, which exists in you and me, even if it is a moment of thought.
From the big to the small, through a small box, picking up the level, the design of the scene, the green plant space enclosed by the glass, not only meets the needs of daily lighting, but also allows the eyes to be stretched. The powerful way like the rain forest shows the exuberance and loveliness of life. At the same time, it fits the virtual to show the real, and in the tortuous path, the scenery is created with the same effect.
