Project Description

Chunyi’s Joy, Unveiled through a Sip
The reconstruction of history awakens the dialogue between ancient architecture and contemporary aesthetic space.
Chunyi is located at the boundary of ancient buildings in Yantai Mountain, Fuzhou, where Chinese and Western cultures blend together. Preserving the original structure of the Yantai Mountain residences, both the beams and the overall appearance maintain the intrinsic beauty of tiled walls and pillars. With the support of new materials, a sense of spatial "distinctiveness" is created.
With black lacquer windows, warm artistic lacquer, and minimalist stone, a strong contrast in materials and colors emerges between the ancient buildings, the streets of Yantai Mountain, evoking the prosperity, confidence, inclusiveness, and fervor found within the architectural historical charm of the past century.
When entering the courtyard to enjoy tea, the pillars of the courtyard are presented in their original form without embellishment, complementing the original blue bricks and restoring the beauty of the architectural structure. By employing the rhythm and abstraction of ancient architectural style, an atmosphere is created, and with the use of structural framing, cherry blossom trees are introduced into the courtyard, embodying the vibrant and expressive essence of a flourishing spring day.
After the new material is planned through the changeable shape and order, it instantly evokes the resonance of passion and logic. The minimalism of materials liberates the expression of color and form, and achieves a perfect balance between disorder and order, rationality and emotion.
The complexity and variability of history are confined within a framework, becoming a kind of "endorsement." People return from the lengthy complexity to the simplicity and predictability of the contemporary, while still maintaining joy and passion.
The arrangement of books and utensils breaks free from traditional constraints with a contemporary artistic approach, while also integrating with tradition. The space appeals to emotions through a lifelike display, and the original ancient architectural structure is guided by rationality, unraveling the complexity of history, engaging in a dialogue with nature, classicism, and life.
From architectural space to furniture composition, from overall layout to material details, the dialogue between old and new permeates the entire space. Different materials, textures, and scents converge and blend within the same domain, achieving a fusion that transcends time and space.
Old buildings, baptized by the passage of time, always possess fragments capable of awakening deep emotional resonance within people's hearts. As individuals traverse the architecture, their intuitive perception of space is derived from the structural framework and enclosing interfaces, as well as the arrangement of furniture.
Human beings leave various footprints in the spaces of their lives. As time passes, some footprints have long faded away, while others remain in ruins. Those that have been fully preserved are few and precious. Respecting the authenticity of history and the integrity of the architecture, designers have applied modern aesthetic design methods to renovate and transform this ancient building. By utilizing the geographical location and distinctive structure of the historic architecture, they present a fusion of Eastern aesthetics and modern design, portraying scenes that are truly vibrant and attractive only when rooted in both modern life and local traditions.
A good commercial space is for gathering with cultural and recreational activities, carrying the history and civilization of a specific region while also possessing youthful vitality. Chunyi is situated in the iconic historic district of Yantai Mountain, exploring beyond the organic integration of local culture and new forms of commerce.
