This is a hat.
This is a boa constrictor swallowing an elephant.

Through softness, everything has more possibilities.
Is it possible to integrate modelling, walls, furniture and display in one plan for the space? The idea that these elements can be interchangeable is the starting point for this design.
TIMING SPA covers 121 square meters. It is mandatory to include a reception and examination area, four single rooms and two double SPA rooms, a disinfected pantry, a toilet/ dressing room, and offices.
First, we divide the space to realise the most appropriate functional blocks, drawing on the walls of public and private space to blur the inner and outer boundaries. We make pushes and pulls, deformations, extrusions, recesses, arcs and links according to different streamlined functional scenes, resulting in flowing walls that can also be used for display, storage and seats. In terms of colour, soft blue-green and delicate cream white intertwine to create a pure atmosphere. We also use the strength of light and shadow to match the changes in colour, both inside and outside. In order to highlight the visually rough texture and the tactile softness and smoothness, art paint is used to strengthen the contrast in human experience.
A connection is made between human, space, function and spirit after a number of attempts to seek out the soft boundary. Customers will experience improvements in their skin status, and the moment they enter the space, all the details of the space point to that end. They will, in the limited time here, experience the flow, contradiction, transitions, and tranquillity of the place.
It’s designed to make people feel casualness in the intentional arrangements, to integrate chaos and order, to seek softness in concrete shapes and to care for the pure and lovely in time.
