The project is a property sales center located in Beihai, Guangxi, China. As one of the starting points of the Maritime Silk Road, Beihai has been witnessing the fusion and collision between Oriental and Western cultures, which add a sense of mystery to ancient roads. The design takes inspiration from local environment and cultural context, and at the same time extracts unique elements of mountain and sea, thereby creating a poetic space that resonates with users.

The design abstracts flowing ripples on the sea, and incorporates the form of sea water into the space via the rich changes of light and shadows. Visitors are encouraged to capture the moments where water surface ripples and to think about changes in life.
