When we look at objects or buildings that seems to be at peace within themselves, our perception becomes calm and dulled. The object we perceive has no message for us, they are simply there. Our perceptive faculties grow quiet, unprejudiced and unacquisitive, they reach beyond signs and symbols, they are open, empty. Our senses gradually become quiet, fair, no longer hungry, they transcend signs and symbols; they are open and empty.
Our senses gradually become quiet, fair, no longer hungry, they go beyond the signs and symbols; they open and deserted.

"The aesthetic pleasure of a space comes from the perceptive faculties, from formal aesthetics to spiritual aesthetics, and then to feel the comfort of the soul brought by beauty, followed by the ideal world represented by the beauty behind. It is like what Zumthor said, the feature of the openness and emptiness of a building or an object.” said the chief designer of the project.
"We need to reach to a balance between the expression and constraint of space, reserving the atmosphere of serenity and meanwhile taking things like the positioning and surroundings of the project into consideration. In the end, we hope that it will be a modern and stylish space with minimalism , but fused with the freshness of nature as well.

Kiefer said: "I want to connect various things in the world in different ways and establish new connections between different things." It is also where the paintings in the corridor should be, to establish connections between different things, to manifest the natural style in an abstract form, connecting the vibe of the space, and at the same time making people have a relaxing wander. VIP Room Design: The VIP room stands next to the window. The modern leather-sand chair and marble table top bring light luxury and comfort together in a natural and graceful way.
