The “way” of architecture
“Pick chrysanthemums next to the fence on the east, in the distance the Zhongnan Mountains traverse”, this is the pastoral feeling of every Chinese, the home where the poet lamented;
“Illustrious prestige, ten thousand countries pay tribute”, the dazzling imperial palace was the home where the Emperor looked down upon the world with haughtiness;

Different humanistic and cultural feelings intersect in different artistic conceptions of space, but they compose the same melody – “home”.
“I raise my chalice to invite the shining moon, the moon casts me a shadow and we have a triad”; the conception of vastness and magnanimity is missed if one is in a boisterous place with heavy traffic.

Home is where my I feel safe and at ease –
We believe that a good residential space can elevate and transform the conception of life, satisfy functions and demands of multiple activities carried out by all family members, and further add brilliance to joy and inspiration to frustration, as well as offer guidance and serenity to a family member who feels lost. “This is not a small matter”, because of such believe, building structure and materials are just external appearance, thus the rich spatial conception constructed is the focus that resonates with users of residential buildings.
