The brand-new space renovated by the studio of Mr. Jin is absolutely an extraordinary combination of small space, broad view and extreme simplicity.

The artful connection between zones and the mix-and-match, alternation and arrangement of blocks make the whole space look flexible and varied.

Before renovation, it was a rectangular space of 12m×6m, with a storey height of 6m. Thanks to Jin’s “one into five” layering design, it has been changed into a space of 160 m²  with much higher use ratio.

As a black steel staircase wriggle upward, five storeys appear in front of us. The “sky well” connects the spaces up and down, on the left and on the right just like a staircase.

It also forms a transparent space.

On the first floor, there is an open exhibition hall, a sunken meeting room, rest rooms and a blank door leading into a storage room right under the staircase.

The sunken meeting room is 40cm lower than the floor surface, leaving enough height for each storey.
