Date：2018-2021 Size：875sqm State: Completed Client: Chengde Aranya A big roof covers fifteen brick pavilions to form a grand brick pavilion, standing at the peak entrance corner for a boutique community. Small in size, but warm and high, like a lighthouse, it guides the residences back home after a long drive from Beijing and a sinuous ascending into the mountain. Between these solid pavilions encounters landscape, mountain view and light you have already been familiar with are now cut and reconnected, redefining the whole landscape and experience. All pavilions enclose spaces for everyday use, yet also achieve a state of eternity. The high and thick steel grid roof creates a sense of openness for the space underneath, where all social events take place.
