Wenqu derives its name from the combination of two Chinese characters, ‘Wen’ and ‘Qu’. ‘Wen’ means the act of looking up and searching for answers, while ‘Qu’ refers to a channel where water converges. Wenqu’s philosophy revolves around maintaining an open cultural perspective and a desire for exploration. Their way of thinking emphasizes comprehending the core needs of a project from various dimensions. Wenqu’s basic approach is to sort out logical relationships in design with targeted solutions.

Practice Ideology

Since 2009, Wenqu has been practicing its unique open design concept in commercial, office, and residential space projects. While catering to the needs of different types of projects, the company continues to explore the design philosophy of mutual transformation between spiritual essence and physical environment. 

After years of intensive and professional work in the design field, Wenqu has become increasingly aware of the profound impact of local culture on the relationship between people and the environment. As a result, the firm has gradually extended the focus of design to the creation of Eastern cultural ambience in space. Starting from the perspective of respect for and continuation of local culture, the Wenqu team works to explore more possibilities for the integration of traditional culture and current lifestyle.
