Zhenlong Mansion by YLH Design

The distinct design of Zhenlong Mansion is inspired by the leadership of the Imperial Academy in Beijing, which was considered the highest institution in ancient China. The sprawling mansion’s design serves the purpose of a modern sales office, bridging the gap between a rich culture and an enterprising forward-thinking approach. The main use of red recalls the importance of red in Chinese history and culture, and the construction also seems to recall ancient building techniques, with the use of interlocking wooden channels to make pillars and beams. The layout imitates the ancient Chinese Academy, and the materials are mostly wood and eco-friendly materials. The space includes a lobby, hallway, negotiation area, and sand table area (shown above with the hovering doves as a sign of peace and prosperity)

Zhongshuge Bookstore by X+Living

While opening a book may feel like stepping into a new world for some book lovers, setting foot in Chengdu’s new Zhongshuge Bookstore should feel like floating in a galaxy! With thousands of books lining the walls of the bookstore and mirrored ceilings that create hypnotic reflections, Zhongshuge Bookstore feels like it was designed by MC Escher! The bookstore, however, is designed by Shanghai-based architecture firm X+Living, who envisioned the space as a sanctuary for books. Massive shelves cover the entire wall from floor to ceiling, however, they are not completely covered with books. To create the illusion of being filled with publications, the architectural firm used printed film with books on the upper shelves, leaving the lower shelves to hold books. “The store already has a collection of over 80,000 books, so there’s no wasted space,” says Xiang Li of X+Living.

Eco Smart City Sales Center by Yipai Decoration Co., Ltd.

The general layout of the Ecological Smart City Sales Center project is inspired by the models of ancient large mansions, imitating the three-courtyard system to divide and differentiate the visions and functions of the spatial dimensions. The central hall, shown in the image above, features a lobby and sand table area lit by self-illuminating “thermostatic lamps”. Ceiling lights run throughout the central hall, following the pattern of Changde’s Chuanzi River. Each individual lamp is shaped like a peach blossom, and together they look like a large branch covered in peach blossoms, honoring the “Peach Blossom Spring” theme.

Qingcheng Creek Village by Nine Dimension Design

Created with an idyllic aesthetic that hopes to resemble “a fictional land of peace”, Qingcheng Creek Village is a sprawling family home that takes people away from the loud noises of the city and the monotonous routine of everyday life. Tourists enter the village through a fascinating barrier at the entrance and observe and enjoy disparate beautiful scenery amidst the landscape as if they are in a “fairyland”. The attractive semi-open architectural layout helps people connect with the outdoors while indoors, and the organic and wooden architectural style visually relaxes visitors by providing a flowing architectural style that feels comfortable, non-linear and not rigid. The project covers a total of 2000 square meters.

Ice Cave Office by Omid Amini and Fatemeh Salehi Amiri

With its unconventional Ross Lovegrovean interior, the Tehran-based ice cave office abandons the idea that architecture should have straight lines. Instead, interiors take on a more curvilinear, ice-carved design, with pillars and seats that look like stalactites and stalagmites emerging from the white floor and ceiling. To add a splash of color and vibrancy to the interior, the walls are lined with plants and vines which are fed by sunlight through an open skylight at the top. The Ice Cave was originally designed to serve as a sales office and retail space, with the intention of gradually transforming it into an event hall and exhibition space.

Puer Community Sales Center by Qingtao Ji

A characteristic part of the Puer Community sales building is its massive rooftop installation located in the center of the building. Set in the middle of a tea estate, the building aims to celebrate the tea leaves found around the property with a large leaf-like roof structure above its central atrium. The large installation resembles a kind of tea strainer, with a tea leaf in the very center, with the characteristic veins of any leaf. The designer wanted to take advantage of the central canopy and sunlight to create a unique spatial appeal. The device is carefully designed to reflect different light patterns depending on the position of the sun. Sometimes they merge into one giant leaf, and sometimes they break up into millions of tiny leaves. These different effects of light and shade make the space lively and attractive.

Hype Tribe Comic Book Office by DB and B Pte Ltd

This unique space with its mixed decor style is inspired by Becton Dickinson’s own consolidation business practices (“BD”). Strong visual and immersive design fuels different experiences in this space. From the inspiration of an Alfresco cafe that provides a cozy ambient environment with the lingering aroma of freshly brewed coffee to the dynamism created by the suspended acoustic panels that mimic a robust flow or current. The interplay of wood and green elements reinforces the architect’s natural inclinations and inspirations.

Wandering in the Woods Kindergarten by L and M Design Lab

While the title of the kindergarten highlights a more wood-inspired approach, the architecture takes on a more fairytale design with the dominant use of white, with wood accents and patches of green on the floor. This approach, according to the designer, was taken to maximize the amount of natural light in the space, creating a healthier light space for children. The design ensures that all classrooms receive natural light from both sides. Columns become trees and beams become bridges to form abundant spatial effects. Continuous stairs and slides spiral up around the “trees,” connecting and activating the spaces. Treehouses provide children with private spaces to read and do other school activities.
