This project is located in Luoyang, one of China's ancient capital cities, also renowned as being ‘the city of peonies’. The elegant blooming petals remind us of various artistic performances. The arc-shaped elements throughout the interior are an abstract way of resembling the petals of the peony in full bloom - these combined with the organ pipes in various heights create the elongated organic decorative shapes throughout the space.


 


At the main entrance of the theater, you can see the arc-shaped metal installations that are turned outwards, spreading out along the theater in various heights. We carefully planned the overlap portions and space between the arcs, so as to make the interior more open.


 


The full-height arc-shaped metal plates are fixed between the floor slabs on the 2nd and 3rd floors. They can be served as a decorative part in the space, and also as a partition between the 2nd and 3rd floors. The widths between each plate are carefully calculated for safety (kids won’t fall from it) and space for air-con louvres.


 


Matt white is the main colour for this project. We chose this colour because the glass curtain walls on the front can transmit natural light very well.
