Take advantage of the characteristics of the terrain and the falling height between the top layer of the main body and the ground,to build a highly visual impact of the tin box dimension. To form strong contrast with the architecture framework, highlight the material application and dimensions of the building, changes of light and shadow, and also the rhythm of space level, as well as the scale change of the relationship between human and architecture.

The guest room area creates two open shared inner courtyards in the original enclosed space. A corridor is in the courtyard runs across it, form a shared space in an independent guest room area, some rooms have private courtyard and unique vertical lighting. The exterior of the main part of the guest room is added with a long corridor what appears to be bamboo building structure, create a vertical spatial scale, experience the wonderful scale change of time through the light and shadow of bamboo. Light and shadow are combined with atomizer, create a very zen philosophical humanistic feelings.
