Located in a historical relic preservation area, the building has a history of 150 years. LIGHTHOUSE was originally used as a Sassoon House, and now it has been transformed into a tea house.The studio integrates the oriental aesthetics into the Western-style architectural form, reactivating the place, connecting people and things in the community, and giving birth to a new cultural place spirit.The new design language of horizontal and vertical overlapping redefined the original square geometric order and injects fluidity into stability.
