Founded in 2008, JINGU PHOENIX SPACE PLANNING ORGANIZATION (JG PHOENIX for short) is a design agency dedicated to a wide spectrum of upscale spaces. We continuously work to create spaces in line with Oriental humanism, and hope to let people perceive Western logical thinking as well as the Oriental sentiment of conforming to nature in the spaces we designed. In addition, we emphasize the harmony among architecture, environment and human, and strive to touch people’s heart and enable the dialogue between mankind and nature via the utilization of simple materials and “intangible” expressions. The design agency’s name is given profound meaning. The words “JIN” and “GU” respectively refer to “today” and “past” in Chinese. Today and past together constitute the time line that runs through history. “Today” wouldn’t come into being if there were no extension of ancient matters, while if there were no such noun of “today”, we couldn’t look back to the past things. “Phoenix” represents the spirit of the east, which is the cultural identification that inherits China’s 5,000 years of history. Representative works include restaurants like Highland Star Chef Restaurant, Sui Han San You, Han Shang Lou and Piao Yan; showrooms like Fusion • Danilo Paint Showroom and A Private Fish Maw Museum; residences like Gong Sheng, A Place Where Dreams Begin, In Between and others.
