The shape of the ancient history of vinegar and jars, cans and other containers gives designer the initial design inspiration. Crack is a kind of expression of vitality, like cracked soil, plant leaf, the surface of the ancient Chinese porcelain. We also use this texture in the details of the building to express the fusion of the building and the ground.

The granular yellow firebricks display the color and texture of millet vividly. We believe this building can bring new vitality for the enterprise and local residents.

In the interior design of the building, the design concept of the utensils is also reflected everywhere. The "urn" recessed at the entrance forms a natural rain shed, which also forms a "visual focus" on the facade. Subsequently, the semi-spherical hall brings people into the wonderful space experience.

Light shines through the dome into the interior, and the resulting shadow presents in the shapes of vinegar urn. As the time change, the resulting shadow varies in different shapes of vinegar urn, reflecting the exquisite design idea.
