By incorporating traditional cultural narratives, the emotional recollections of citizens, and distinctive industrial symbols into the new building interior design. Furthermore, the spatial arrangement effectively divides the area into three distinct thematic sections and five function areas dedicated to the preservation of memory and personal experiences through the strategic utilization of layout and moving line.

Every original piece of furniture, lamps, and decorations is accompanied by a wide range of materials and exceptional craftsmanship.
