Located in the thriving business district of Zhujiang New Town, Guangzhou, the building was built in the 1980s with a strong Lingnan culture and custom. The owner intended the space design to reflect the professionalism, artistry and elegant sentiment of the spot, shunning the worldly vulgar aesthetics. In this context, One Design has taken steps to eliminate unnecessary decorative features on the basis of local culture, rejecting the fussy, set and stylized furnishing techniques. It works hard to preserve the building’s original appearance as much as possible with pure white and the grey of plain cement as the base tone. With the addition of modern steel plate materials, stained glasses and abstract artworks, the area plays out the beauty of the conflict between the new and the old.
"Confronted with the uncertainties and opportunities in the future, we will continue to focus on the logic design and poetic building of spatial scenes, the rigor of commercial values as well as the diversity of life aesthetics. We will deepen our efforts to revisit the intertwined experiments of East, material, light and shadow, and continuously explore the boundaries of design, in effort to give back to commerce and life with the power of design."said the designers.
The Orient is an eternal subject that has endless potential to explore. It can be regarded as the original topic of Chinese designers as it’s deeply rooted in the cultural heritage and blood of the Chinese Nation. This is also one of the source of inspiration for One design, which combines international modernism and oriental appeal to create an alluring design that not only completes the space’s functional and structural integrity, but also develops a sound atmosphere and immersion experience needed to move people’s hearts .
