Situated in an old residential building built in the 1990s, the gallery is dominated by a simplistic white tone. By exploring the connection and structural relations between different spaces, the designers created a series of interweaving functional areas. The layout breaks the "flatness" of scenes, and dissolves the residential atmosphere of the original space. The landscape view blends the space with the outdoor yard and scenery. The carved-out "frames" on facades match with glass partitions, helping introduce nature into interior and create an art space infused with openness and humanism.
