Project Overview

The Architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's design philosophy of "less is more" has set off a trend of minimalism, which is mainly to refine details and pursue perfection, thus jointly constituting the core connotation of this concept today. It is simple and no-nonsense, almost natural in line with the times, so the purity of space can be reflected in the structural reconstruction, which is the initial impression brought by the Shizhi Home Exhibition Hall to people.
Located in a furniture production base with various brands, the exhibition hall must keep a sense of harmony and leave enough impressed memory points in both the interior and exterior. Starting from "simplicity", the designers create a calm foundation for the space through the ingenious combination of structure, colors and lines, making it match the brand style while also building a free space between home art and daily life for appreciating beauty and having a rest.

Project Brief

The splicing and interweaving of the main blocks at the entrance creates the overall spatial structure. The natural texture of the stone materials integrates with the straight and concise lines, compositing a neat and harmonious duet. The simple and no-nonsense spatial style emerged as required, and the non vulgar sense of coldness and layering are firmly reflected in the light and shadow of the stone patterns. The designer hid the originally intricate ceiling beams and columns by using architectural and spatial techniques, making the space smooth and comfortable between tension and relaxation.
Adhering to the design concept of "seeking simplicity in complexity, and exploring nature in the craftsmanship", the designer pursues the clarity and purity of the space. The entire exhibition hall adopts a non main lighting design and natural lighting in a large area, integrating nature into the space in addition to save energy. The interweaving of multiple lights and shadows creates a warm and comfortable atmosphere, granting every field the change effect of "different scenery in one day".
Inspired by the rhythm of wind and water flowing in nature, the designer pursues the harmony, nature, and comfort of indoor space like wind and water, using the continuation of the block structure to create the harmony and uniformity of the flowing space in the rapid changes of the structure.

Project Innovation/Need

Learning from the design techniques of Oriental gardens, the designer creates a partly hidden and partly visible effect for the scenery through opening windows on the facade, echoing the scenery and expending the space. Therefore, the comfortable coexistence of the environment, space, and people is ultimately realized, making the spaces with high and low lighting and darkness the best display platform for home products, and vividly interpreting the open and inclusive style.
The design inspiration for the exhibition hall comes from the tranquility of pure colors in the large area of the Salt Lake. Therefore, low saturation colors from the main blocks are used in the overall project to create a pure and minimalist spatial style.
The wooden flooring is used in the exhibition hall of the living room to create a warm and peaceful environment. The entire space abandons complex forms and decorations, and makes the home fun more intense through the creation of diverse living scenes. While fitting the usage environment, it can also highlight the characteristics of the product itself, providing the best viewing experience for visitors.

Design Challenge

The circular hall deep in the exhibition building has a hollow and elevated design, which fully releases the sense of oppression in the space and injects interaction into the two independent spaces. The hollow semi circular partition creates a clever boundary for the space, building up a harmonious and transparent space, which can not only better showcase personalized furniture, but also add flowing sense to the space.


The designer insists on using artificial marble, which is not only a convenient production gathering area with artificial marble near the project, but also can effectively reduce logistics costs, and minimize the additional carbon emissions and energy consumption caused by mining natural stone materials.
The main color tone of plain white not only complements the designer's design inspiration, but in indoor lighting design, light colored spaces can fully utilize the diffuse reflection and refraction of natural and artificial light sources, minimizing the use of indoor lighting as much as possible, achieving the dual effect of saving energy and reducing carbon emissions.
Considering the huge cost and energy consumption of cultivating natural green plants indoors, the trunks used for artificial landscapes are abandoned trees from flower and tree bases, and the filling material at the bottom of the landscape is made of ceramic production waste: ceramic particles, which turn waste into treasure. As designers, we adhere to the principles of energy conservation, emission reduction, and recycling, contribute to the sustainable development.
