White "blind box",
---the perception space to be opened
The visible phenomena of the objective world are meaningless in themselves, but the most important thing is feeling.
---- Kazimir Malevich
Introduction: non-visual minimalism
Perhaps we are living in an era surrounded by countless minimalist forms, but this does not mean that we have understood how to understand the full meaning of minimalism. If minimalism is really just a set of pure and powerful visual language constructed from geometric forms, then such minimalism is still barren in the conceptual realm and reduced to an elite game of vision and modeling.
In the process of tracing the current minimalist history, we tried to understand the logic behind Bauhaus, and peeped forward on the basis of Bauhaus, and found that Malevich left the inspiration for art history and even design history: the beginning It was Malevich's "Black Square" and then his "White on White".
Malevich declared that he had reduced everything to its limit. People no longer have to see or describe, they only need to feel to express themselves.
In this way, language is scarce and feeling is the whole value when their facing true minimalism.

Form: White square box to be opened
As a real estate center based on young people-Luzhou Tiantian Building Sales Center, the overall concept of the building started from the architectural design, and we tried to use minimalist forms and white cubes to build a space full of insight and perception. .
The cube is not only a single and pure geometric form, but also the original form of architecture after the awakening of modern rationality. As a volume of space, it has the bidirectional ability of perfect construction and being constructed. It can be understood as the smallest unit of space, or it can be subdivided by infinite cube space. In the square box, The symbolic spatial expression of this modern order is waiting to be exported.
The horizontal facade is constructed with hollow bricks, just like opening some small holes in the box, ingeniously introducing natural light, and bringing unexpected effects to the entire interior space.
The white cube, which is relatively closed in appearance, is its form, and the holes in the wall slightly penetrate inward or outward, tentatively.
The flowers are in full bloom all around, and the box is packed like a gift. In a more youthful way of expression, we call it a "blind box". "Blindness" is not blind blindness, but the hazy outline of reality deep in the subconscious, a state to be opened, representing multiple possibilities.
Narrative: constructing the LOFT "motif"
This is a real estate sales center with young people as the main target audience. How to stimulate their emotional resonance and creativity has become the value of this "blind box", which carries surprises and possibilities.
The interior of the space still continues the whiteness of the surface, which throughout the interior and exterior purely.
The entire square box is composed of four major components, the sky atrium, the negotiation area on the first floor and the water bar on the second floor which are divided into upper and lower floors, and the enclosed corridor from the first floor to the second floor. Undoubtedly, this is an enlarged version of the LOFT pattern, allowing young consumer groups to tacitly preserve the initial impression of the spatial pattern.
The internal structure is simple and fluent. All the languages are in the concise grasp, opening up a state of "emptiness" to every independent young individual, removing all modifications, just like language stripping off all rhetoric. But as a narrative syntax or spatial semantics, it is complete. This completeness comes from the consideration of the spatial scale, the full use of light, and the structural grasp of the sculptural details of the space.
Construction: perception breeds from "white"
In this uncomplicated white square box, the activation of perception comes precisely from the first silence of the space. The space is so clean, but this cleanness is not a sign of lack.
White is like a metaphor for deceive visually. Nothing reveals a special clue. The visual experience of the landscape age is denied here, but the ability to communicate and perceive is flowing out of our ears, nose and even skin. The sparse and dense light, the alternation of cold and heat, the temperature of the wood color, the fineness of the wall. The white space gives people a floating relationship in the gravitational perception, as well as the sound of far and near and the inner memory... activating the emotions and projections deep in the hearts of everyone present.
Yes, in this era, relying on the nourishment of the outside world to find self-repairing energy has become common sense. Home, or a stable and emotionally continuation space, has become our strongest sustenance.
Place: space preserves compressed time
This is a passive space. The passiveness of space is for the people in the midst to take the initiative from space. This is like an original code to be developed, waiting for further commands. As if the future is coming to us.
The rationality of the spatial volume and the relaxation of the spatial atmosphere constitute a certain experience tension, which inspires people and gives them peace.
Every area has some kind of secret information buried deep in the details when we wandering in the space.
The vertical skylight hole is the highlight moment of the dream, and the sublime appears here as a result; the void hall and the second floor form a staggered skip-floor, this is the desire to explore higher; while leaning the wall of the corners where you sit are dense with light and shadow, nestled with warmth, and the space preserves compressed time in thousands of small holes, caring for each other.
The closed corridor connecting the first floor and the second floor is dark. As the transformation, pause and suspension of space, it is a deeper experience in the relationship of space behavior. Because in addition to the sun, the stars in the dark night also nourish our dreams.
Thinking about the nature of life seems to have become the biggest anxiety of the younger generation about life. We always hope that in the process of separation of life, we can find the blurred but true light to pacify our restless hearts.
Sublimation: Finding the meaning of life
The space on the second floor standing in a relatively higher territory, which can be understood as the possession of the site, a sense of belonging to the sublimation of the space.The participants here are aroused to respond to the space, leaving aside symbols and forms, moving towards an unclassifiable esign unit: Simple design ·JSD
and unrepeatable essence, and consciously becoming part of the space, contributing their own atmosphere of the place.
For us, such an interior space is more like looking for empathetic perceivers. However,It is exactly their understanding and perception of space that they consume when they are transformed into consumers.
Perhaps, only removing the illusion of the "image" world that we can truly recover the "meaning of life" that is being lost.
It is not only clouds and rain that separate humankind from the stars;
It is never reality and destiny that hinder life and dreams.
As the "blind box" is opened and rebuilt, we are bound to find surprises. We are bound to appreciate life with our more subtle perceptions, and we are bound to reconfirm ourselves with the richer rewards of life.
