The scenery is beauty; nature is grandeur. Abandon screams and self-expression, and embrace silence and tranquillity… “Retreat” is a design attitude. Sitting next to the third largest urban public park in the world, Chongqing Vanke Forest Park Sales Gallery is a retreat between the city and nature. The project is a magical house hidden in nature, a wood cabin among fir trees. At its initial opening, it is the sales gallery of the residential project, but it will be turned into a kindergarten for the community in the future. In terms of design, the building needs to satisfy both the initial commercial sales function and the later educational function, as well as to portray the overall design concept of Chongqing Vanke Forest Park. Returning to nature is an important part of the modern city lifestyle, and it is a key concept for the project. Hence, a gigantic “mirror” is mounted on the building’s elevation to reflect the 5,000 sqm fir tree wood, and a wood cabin is cut out at the base of the mirror.
