Text description provided by the architects. High-quality Texture and Sculptured Space
In silence, the slight flow of space can be perceived: the facade is without the order, five-colored floor rises and falls with a little noise, and the ceiling is ripped through the direct curve. The vividness of leisure is demonstrated in the colors and materials of natural minerals, reaching relaxing breaths and coordination. Through the gray lights, more tiny pores can be seen. They are now far and quiet, breathing deeply and joyfully.

The cut of building mass and a style of geometric sculpture make the body feel a confortable and peaceful design in the living area with a low-Chroma color, gray. It makes us feel the heaviness of building mass lighter.

Inspiration
Located in Songjiang, Shanghai, DISHAN Space is a brand of collective space aimed to provide all sorts of recreational experience, where people meet to nibble snacks, sip fruit tea, play games and have fun . Considering the site is close to Songjiang Court built from Yuan dynasty, we hope to integrate the modern style into the traditional. After careful analysis, we decide to use the basic shapes that constitute nature, that is, rectangle, circle and triangle, to present an all-compassing DISHAN space.

Text description provided by the architects. Traditional school planning in modern Chinese cities usually provides students and children with an adult-scale campus environment at an excessively early stage. Such environment gives no help to them in coping with high educational and social pressure. Facing these phenomenon, it is the architects’ responsibility to subversively break these conventions in school planning and offer children with space of their own scale
