Entry Description

Situated in a rural village, this community center melds traditional sloping roofs with innovative layouts, achieving a harmonious blend of the familiar and the new. Its leaf-like floor plan imparts a sense of weightlessness, gracefully mirroring the water's edge. Each structure's central eaves gently guide focus towards the horizon while the terminations in each room offer sweeping views of the nearby lake and mountains. The massing adapts to the natural elevation shift, mirroring adjacent terraced tea fields. Upon entry, visitors embark on a journey culminating in a tranquil waterside trail.
