The layout of the building is based on traditional Chinese courtyard design, combined with the sense of order in Chinese architecture and various landscaping techniques in Chinese landscape to create a quiet and comfortable interior courtyard space. The change of the height of the wall has a good connection with the exterior facade of the building, it also integrated with the surrounding natural environment. When people pass through the main entrance space, the architectural space become clear suddenly, as if on the water side.
