We were born in the nature but lost in the city. Under the designer's ingenious planning, this project creates a large ship carrying nature in the gloomy concrete jungle. A large number of organic materials are blended in the natural stone to make the open and bright space lively. The facade of the building is inlaid with rows of upright pipes, like a solemn pipe organ in the cathedral, welcoming all the guests and playing the natural flow of its own. When the night falls, soft light pours out from the building, illuminating the field, and for the lost travelers in the city, illuminating a path leading them back to nature.

Entering the building, oncoming is an open hall: large-area windows open, making the old pine oblique outside the window the most elegant landscape in the building. The high ceiling space is equipped with upright pipes that reflect each other on the outer wall of the building, which can be used as lighting to add a different atmosphere to the space, and the concise appearance sets off the elegance of the pine trees. In contrast, there is a theme wall made of natural stone. The original, uncut stones are scattered in an orderly manner, so that the roughness appropriately shows the vitality of nature. The designer borrowed the sunlight under the stone wall to make visitors think about the most primitive and natural cave life of mankind, and how full of vitality it is.

Climbing up the stairs, the wooden staircase is matched with dark iron parts, using vertical switching to transfer the scenery from the ancient and natural to the simple modern city. The stone and furnishings, which are based on the cold tone, are matched with each other, but they are not cold due to the large amount of natural light and ingenious lighting. Continuing the openness of the first floor, the designer uses glass to maintain the penetration of the space while creating an intimate atmosphere, allowing the guests in it to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. After polishing the stone and wood that add a sense of hierarchy to the space, a meticulous performance was staged in the space on the second floor. The prosperity has faded, and the refined simplicity has left elegant footprints here. The white space that is not excessively decorated allows the other protagonists in the space-light and shadow to play, leaving a beautiful melody.

Refining the beauty of nature into its purest form is simply the definition of Elegance. This case turns the complexity into simplicity and uses nature as a pen to compose a harmonious movement of the relationship between man and nature, allowing urban visitors to imagine the beauty of nature. Through the setting of lighting and light, it lights up a heart-warming lamp for the exhausted travelers.
