The construction land only covers an area of 3,000 square meters, and the street-facing facade is only 50 meters wide. The architect proposes the concepts of “section” and “window”, and cuts apart the building with abstract sections. Then, the space inside the building and the activities of its users have become a part of the external image of the building, vividly and faithfully presenting the image of the “dream life” of young people through different sizes of sectioned “windows” and developing a unique facade image.

The facade of the building is covered with nearly 800 square meters of silver-white brushed aluminum plates and about 300 square meters of ultra-clear glass curtain wall, allowing the building to present a neutral texture and echo the sky and the environment. More importantly, it will turn over the task of demonstrating the colors and expressions of the building to the users of the indoor, landscapes, and interior and exterior spaces.

Inside the building, the interior design imbeds contents with different characteristics into the spaces of different sizes in the building.

Outside the building, the landscape design introduces diverse colored patterns and highly interactive landscape facilities, attracting the residents of nearby communities to get involved jollily.
