The Concept

We have learned that Shenzhen is the “test ground” for China’s economic reform and opening up, and is also the first city to establish a relatively perfect socialist market economic system. Shenzhen has created a miracle in the history of industrialization, urbanization and modernization in the world. It is a wonderful epitome of China’s brilliant achievements in reform and opening up in the past 30 years.

Therefore, we conclude that “modern” is the most representative of the overall image of Shenzhen. At the same time, it is also the result of the efforts and pursuits of young people living in Shenzhen.

From then on, the design inspiration of modernism was refined and applied to the space design of this project. We use the metal fusion castings and Fiber Glasses, rich in industrial texture and lines, focusing on pragmatism and stylized concise design, local fusion into the whole, so as to achieve an unconscious, artificial aesthetic feeling. It satisfies both physiological and psychological requirements.

At the same time, through modernism, we have extended Cubism, which has a far-reaching impact. Cubist artists pursue the form of analysis and reassembly to form separate pictures. The staggered overlapping of various angles of objects results in many vertical and parallel line angles. The background and the theme of the pictures interact, highlighting the central theme to be expressed.

We use two kinds of design principles as our main design methods and apply them to the design of space, including hard and soft.


According to the shape of the square the extracted elements are applied to the the soft decoration of the space in order to give a feeling of order but at the same time simplicuty.


According to the shape of the ellipse, the extracted push round elements are applied to the decoration of the space in order to increase spatial richness.


Very common but always an expression of order and unicity, the lines will give a feeling of business space but at the same time confidential and unique space.

Rounded Shape

From the famous landamrk of Shenzhen was born the typical rounded shape of a special pattern which will be the master piece of all the interior design of the space.

Soft and Art Approach

The phenomena of different reflections created in a space enlighted by the sunlight entering through a window is the result of the perfect scanning of the time.
