River flows eastward and leaves fall in profusion. The scene of “four hundred eight temples built in the Southern Dynasties bathing in misty rain” (Southern Spring by Du Mu in Tang Dynasty) has long been buried in oblivion in history, but people in Jinling still take delight in talking about the legend on “cloud light”, associating it with the gift of nature Yuhau Stone.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Cultural inheritance is another highlight of this design. After thinking seriously about the enterprise culture of Zendai group, the designer incorporates simple ideas in modern times into abstract Chinese elements, creating the uniqueness of space using fashionable ways. For instance, “deep well” modelling is adopted in the upward side of sand table. Simplified upright modeling is painted with vermeil emulsion paint, which is inspired by the Chinese character “回, implying concepts such as “home” and “reincarnation” and embodying the essence of Chinese culture.

The first and second floor of the building are a misplaced space, and there is transparent glass all round. We want to blend the indoor and outdoor landscape together, so we extend the outdoor terrace pavement to indoor area.
We ingeniously apply a sensemaking way in Chinese literature, metaphorically express the image that the house selling club wants the buyers to return home. Returning is a pictograph, and its meaning is returning home and coming back, and it is also a meaning of recycling. We use the multi-layered combination and overlap of air-conditioning outlet, light belt, light membrane and red coating on the ceiling right above the model sand table to perfectly complete the abstract manifestation of the word returning.
