We design the building as a piece of paper floating above the water ,only touching the ground in two points.

The building has a simple structure system :

A: 900mm high concrete base, which can protect the wood from the rain and water. 
B: wood bent structure with 3.6 meters distance.
C: two way folded roof with skylight.

Structure system

The wood columns take the vertical load, and a solid concrete core takes the horizontal load. The core is operated as a precise machine: carve the solid volume by the circulation, function and the view.

We also combine the different functions with the concrete baseaccording to the locations: can be a showcase, cabinet, coffee bar or even a sofa lounge.

In two corners where the roof goes to the ground there is double height space. We put Electric skylight above ,whichallows light into these spaces and also improve the ventilation.

The whole building is a wood pavilion with a clear logic, thus we treat the interior design in a simple way: expose the original concrete, wood, steel materials and the joint as much as possible. Only hide the lights and equipments.
