The site is located in Manjuelong a place with a typical misty and rainy artistic conception from Jiangnan, specialized in dealings with oriental-style furniture products. We found the fulcrum of the design from "rain on roof tiles" a small daily event with strong Jiangnan charm and applied it to the entire space. Extracting the remaining tiles of the original building as the design element of the facade, the building seems to be given a new layer of skin.
