When light shines on the object, there will be two sides: bright and dark side, which is the origin of the modelling. People need space, light and order just like they need bread and a place to sleep.
——Le Corbusier （France）
Kenya Hara once put forward the concept of sensory objects, which means giving objects some characteristics from the perspective of sense and manifest their existence.
The five senses of man are sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. Through the color and material, the space interface emphasizes modeling style impression of the point, line, surface. We focus on every part of the design and strive to highlight excellence through paying close attention on details. In addition, there is a crucial element of expressiveness which is worth repeating during design. It has no entity but it is everywhere, and the live form of existence infuses the space with life. It is light, natural light.
▲原始建筑外观 Original building appearance
▲原始建筑室内 Original interior building
The project site was originally a small commodity market in Suzhou Dehe, which was designed with columnar frame structure and adequate ventilation can be provided around the main body of the building. The inclination of triangular roof satisfies the open interior space, but the problem of insufficient daylighting was caused by the shelter of the roof from the sun.
Guided by the incidence angle of the natural light, the tilted angle of the Lobby and the Entrance allows sunlight to project into the room completely. With it as the interior main axis, its building process with other spaces break through the formula of vertical and horizontal planning, advocating flexible change.

Because of the existence of light, there is visual perception. Without light, we would live in darkness and solitude, and all colors would lose their meaning. Reflecting or refracting on the surface of the material, light is projected into the eye ultimately. The color of the interface is presented and the texture effect of the material is emphasized and highlighted. People will get warm tactile experience when the heat of natural light stimulates the sensory nerves of the skin.
Light regards the interior space as a box to receive the light from nature and make it stay in the space for a long time. With the imaginary existence of box. Thought of interface enclosure building is abandoned and the physical wall is cut down to introduce the light into the room. Under the concept of cube, we can examine the three-dimensional existence of light from the perspective of space, stimulates the deep meaning of color and material texture.
The boundary between interior and exterior is blurred. The open design emphasizes the penetration of interior and exterior spaces.

[几何界面] Geometry interface
Adhere to internal restraint, use general, concise lines to serve as a foil to details full of tension. The hard line and plane structure explained the sense of beauty because of the order arrangement.
▲建筑立面细节 Building facade details
Take the variation of natural light in different periods into consideration, and weigh the scale and proportion. We build contrast effects of dynamic light and shadow, shape the structure and deduce subtle details of texture.

[室内主轴 Indoor main shift]
The space utilization and the open sight are considered through planning of the upper and lower floors. The skylight at the top of the stairs compensates for natural lighting and adds to the permeability of the space.

[色彩印象 color impression]
White is a color that makes all colors escape from it. The meaning it contains is diverse and infinite. Because of its tolerance, white highlights other colors. The orange color represents brightness and vigor. The green of the plant represents the life. Under the basic tone of white, orange and green color are interspersed to harmonize a special artistic atmosphere.

[材质肌理material and texture]
Driven by the opportunity of light, the design pursues the material and inspires the vitality of space. By using cement mortar, stone, metal, glass, the surface of the material is shaped into the changing texture by light, which expresses randomly the creative idea and the artistic feeling is strong
▲室内细节 Interior details
Light³ focuses on the process of mutual generation between design and nature, reflecting the philosophy and spiritual pursuit of life. Wandering in the white space by introducing the light. Because of the interaction between material texture and interface form, a unique effect forms. Taking space as the base and skylight as the guidance, it is syncretic but orderly and has profound meaning.
