“It is not just a library but a garden as well.” Have a private talk with a garden. Enjoying the slow pace of life in the garden is how the pace in the bathhouse used to be. Bathing in the atmosphere brings a totally different reading experience.
A Pilates space, use single wood material, but in expanding its characteristics, the design is unified but not monotonous, the purpose is to create a welcoming space, and gives users a friendly and safe feeling.
The project was an abandoned stone pit in a village in north China. Its original cliff is preserved without any treatment as background wall of the theater. It includes an open-air theater to provide community services for the villagers, such as public gatherings, cultural and leisure activities.
