The design activates the city’s cosmopolitan atmosphere, which represents the longing for home. Based on the theme of “garden tour”, five major scenes are created to present the real estate sales center and the show flat.
PART ONE: INSPIRATION GARDEN
Strolling in the inspiration garden,
where gentle sunshine and breeze relieve the tiredness,
people can enjoy a leisurely moment here away from the outside hustle and bustle.
Stepping into this urban “garden,”
one will regain the inspiration of vacation.
Living in the urban concrete jungle breeds the dream of having a garden. How wonderful would it be to have a garden in the city? Dappled sunlight falls, creating a free, cozy ambiance in the afternoon. People sit under tree shade, looking at the clear sky and moving clouds. All the leisurely scenes in the garden open up a journey of inspiration.
PART TWO: MOMENTS SQUARE
Here, people are brought to re-encounter nature, isolated from busy urban life.
It unveils a garden tour, introducing a fun, pleasing journey.
The interior is interpreted through landscaping thinking, fully releasing imagination and creativity.
The “garden” foyer is a subtle integration of simple textures and a natural ambiance. Transparent glass and rhythmic light and shadows produce an atmosphere that blurs spatial boundaries. Earth-texture finishes, mottled handmade terra-cotta bricks, property models presented in landscape adornments, and the carpet that simulates a grassland create an immersive garden touring experience.
One can feel the cozy, interactive vibe in the air. by strolling along the twisting path and walking up steps and strolling along the twisting way and walking up steps. The folding glass windows in the conversation area bring in sunshine and create grille-like light and shadow effects. Tasting a cup of fragrant coffee and sitting on the soft sofa, people would enjoy a pleasant afternoon here. The retro-style KARE bar stools and the dynamic ripples-like lighting above inject energy into the space.
PART THREE: DREAM STATION
The “train” leading to the desired home passes through the “dream station,”
where surprises await discovery.
The perception of variations, and the happiness of making handicrafts,
allow people to enjoy leisure and happiness here.
If possible, take the “train” on a trip to the “dream station,” where the station sign and light box recall memories about past days.The architectural space echoes the transit-oriented development attribute while also showing concrete quality life scenes. There seem to be infinite experiences, with flower arrangements and handicraft-making activities creating fun and interaction during the journey.
PART FOUR: CENTRAL PARK
Stroll in the central green field awash with vitality,
and release your personality into the free, happy paradise.
It portrays a desired boundless world,
guides the path back to life,
and stimulates diverse interactions.
Wandering in the accessible, interactive central plaza and passing through the unrestrained space, one will encounter children’s paradise, which records the happy, innocent smiling faces of kids playing here. Visitors are invited to sit on the stepped seats leisurely, to watch the subtle interaction between people and space. TOMO DESIGN tries to approach the space through visual imagery, to create resonance with the spiritual world.
PART FIVE: SHOW HOME
A warm home is conceived,
which provides an unexpected leisure space for relieving tiredness.
This favored leisure corner is a retreat from the outside hustle and bustle,
inviting people to slow down in the fast-paced city to enjoy life.
This home is a combination of passion, practicality, and intimacy, bringing a sense of belonging. The spatial layout for shared activities and the interactive bar counter-featured dining room add more fun to life. The boundary between the balcony and living room is blurry yet continuous, facilitating the creation of fun life scenes. As night falls, playing gentle rhythms on the piano creates warm, leisurely moments. Isolated from the outside world, the home offers truly pleasant multi-sensory experiences.
The design incorporates the city’s worldly atmosphere into the “garden tour” connecting with nature, to fully relax the mind with cozy, pleasing experiences, portray a happy life within reach, and bring the desired freedom, fun, and leisure to people.
Breeze, leisure, and garden tour.
The best moments are on the way.
Encountering beautiful scenery and good things happening, and enjoying leisurely time,
perhaps these are the true meaning of “garden tour”.
