Rendering Plans

The lobby area is designed to maximize the walking path, serving for people to exercise indoors in extreme weather. The asymmetrical pathway can add an enjoyable visual experience to space. Besides, applying natural colors, textures, and materials can arouse residents' biophilic nature. Colorful knitting working as separation walls decorates the rooms, which satisfy preview requirements interestingly.
