River Palace, overlooking south to the confluence of the four rivers. As it faces the vast hinterland of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, combining with its historical background, the key words “set sail” came to designer's mind; therefore, “yacht” is applied as the design language in the project architecture to illustrate the understanding of “urban characteristics” and “environmental characteristics”. It has become a new urban gathering spot and offered a natural emotional experience field to the Pearl River coast. With lines growing from the ground, undulating like waves and delineating several sets of pavilion-like private space, it is ideal for friends from a specific circle to have a drink here.Several decks are set up around the bar area to provide an emotional incubator for “strangers” to socialize. The majority of yacht design is related to water. To break the waves, the outlines of yacht are mostly streamlined – which is exactly the natural form of water; within the streamlined outline, decoration, furniture and even the form of the space itself are restricted and influenced by it, and once again respond to water-related reveries. The designer encloses the space with a U-shaped sofa, which also follows the yacht design. The open fireplace brings the warmth of the bonfire night talk into the indoor area, making the environment seemingly more cordial. Throughout the space, wood veneer and leather furniture alternately appear, following the common material syntax of yacht interiors. An independent and complete restroom is hidden among the beams of light, which is defined by colors: pink for female and blue for male.It seems to be infinitely distant due to mirror reflections, like ancient palaces that accidentally show up when people dive deep under the sea.
