Reading While Be In Touch With Heaven and Earth

Reading Under Lake By Waterfrom Design | Eclectic Trends

Based in Tapei (Taiwan), architecture firm Waterfrom Design spans the fields of residential, commercial, and public space design. The idea of the project below is built on presenting a tranquil, harmonious, and undisturbed dwelling place in a buzzing world.

The concept of the project Reading Under The Lake is outlined with this statement:

In the past, an old tree always acted as the core of the gathering among the villagers, who exchanged daily information and built relationships. It is a habit and a collective memory to gather under the old tree. Tea is the tradition and essence of the old Xiamen culture. It is a ritual and life to boil water and brew tea for friends. A glass tea pavilion surrounded by a lake is a prelude, just like the transparent container for the ritual on the tea table.”

The sales office building located in Xiamen (China) offers a thoughtful space for its community with an underground is surrounded by the circular atrium bringing light and water nourishing the tree in the bottom of the lake that stretches out to the sky. The scene resembles the simplest appearance of the heaven and the earth. The architecture firm hops to have created a space for dialogues so the individuals who are alienated by urbanization can find a place to gather around the tree and talk about their daily lives and build personal relationships with others while sipping a cup of tea and comfortably breath in the rhythm of life.
