The space design plan of the inn lobby is connected to the garden. The space design adopts the artistic conception of courtyard in the courtyard and hall in the hall, and integrates the traditional "ritual order" design technique, so that guests staying in the corner castle can gain a sense of dignity and ceremony from the "ritual order".

In ancient times, abacus was used for calculations and cash registers, and the movements and movements in the inn were filled with the power of heaven and earth. Observe the tallness of the mountains, the agility of the water, and the universe of "calculation".

The peak of the straight mountain also represents the characteristics of the "corner" of the courtyard of the corner castle. From the mountain to the corner, the different levels of the corner gradually evolve into the shape of water. Rhythm makes the space move between light and shadow, and the steps follow the scenery. The continuation and transformation from the lobby to the "corner" of the reception room bring rich feelings to the space.

The space is extracted from the color of "green lotus" and the charm of lotus is blended into it. Guest room space design.
The second floor is named after the Zhai in the traditional academy with the technique of "Zhai Zhong Jing Zhong Jing". The ancients said: "Books have their own golden rooms, and books have their own beauty like jade." The space design draws design inspiration from "jade". Taking "Purple Jade" as the design element, the jade artist said: "Jade is in the mountains and the vegetation is moist, and the abyss produces pearls but the cliffs are not withered." The space is integrated into the guest room space by extracting the color of purple jade and the landscaping of the island to incorporate the original shape of jade into the guest room space. design.
The third floor is named after the pavilion with "Jingzhongjing, Jingzhongjing". The pavilion is the place where utensils are stored.

The space is integrated into the guest room space design through the morphological elements and charm of the stone. .
