The Shanju Market is a single-storey public building located at the foot of Kunzhang Mountain. In the early stage, it served as the exhibition center of the project of Half-soup Spring Town in Overseas Chinese Town, Chaohu, Anhui Province; Later, as customers move in, it will be transformed into a public market in the community. The design concept of "embracing the spring, approaching to the forest and hiding in the mountains" runs through the whole process. Hot spring, the unique natural resources of Chaohu Lake, is the source of vitality for the entire town. In the open front of the building, the designer who uses traditional techniques in the Japanese garden, compares white sands to hot springs, making sands intersect with vegetation in a way of curves to convey a gentle charm. Meanwhile, the simplicity of white gives us a pure and comfortable feeling. Such a beautiful place is also suitable for outdoor art exhibitions, cultural exchange activities, and theme parties.
