“Thinking life exists in every corner of this city. We hope that through design, we can bring more urban corners worth thinking about.”
The project site is located at the exit of the subway station on the subway floor of IGC Tianhui Plaza in Guangzhou. It is a 60-square-meter “resting pavilion”. Because of the fast pace of the flow of people, we want to create a temporary and comfortable “leisure” experience. Different from the boring layout of ordinary commercial streets that completely separate the indoor private space from the outdoor public space with a closed curtain wall, the relatively vivid and open form makes this doughnut a place for people to communicate with each other, forming a “thickness” “The circulation interface.
The design uses an open attitude to talk to the natural environment and the city, blurs the absolute boundary between indoor and outdoor, and creates a 60-square-meter “resting pavilion”, hoping to provide people with a temporary rest in this busy and rushed circulation hub. , “City corners” slowing down.

The pure white circular structure echoes the original ceiling and ground shape of the mall. The enclosed circle forms a natural small patio. Small trees grow in the middle, blending into the environment of the mall and outdoor landscape elements, and the boundaries between indoor and outdoor are blurred.
Introducing the urban scenery into the space, the wonderful changes of light and shadow, and the people passing by in a hurry, have become an important part of the whole store scene.

In contrast to the horizontal and vertical design before the transformation, the transformation adopts a circulating circulation line, which makes visitors feel like they are in a “park”, which attracts people to explore. The pure white highlights the natural freshness of landscape plants. Sitting in the garden , Naturally realize the interaction between nature and people.

Through a lively dialogue with nature and the city, the design redefines the boundary between indoor and outdoor. The corridor and the patio blur the boundary between indoor and outdoor, where photosynthesis begins to take place, slowing down the rhythm of breathing, enjoying the aroma of coffee, and creating a corner of the city. This is the designer’s strong desire to explore the ideal city interface.

Coffee shops can be more than just a space for people to provide coffee. It is hoped that they represent a small tree in the urban public space, which slowly sprouts, grows naturally, and gradually spreads to the corners of the city, becoming a shelter for people.
