“Great truths are always simple.”—This is more than a design philosophy but the nature of quality life. We transform the design from addition to subtraction by adopting the method of using clean, soft lines for ultimate visual experience. Community center on 2nd floor is a hyperspace with the fluent lines running like a wave. With expansive space, it provides the possibilities for reading, relaxation, communication and different activities. Balancing charm and liveability, it was essential to realize better connection between people by our design.
