The site is located at unit D 1/F of the industrial building. The unit included with an opened-air flat roof which is suitable for designing as a outdoor patio-like place. The light shines all the way from the sky to the patio, and natural light can also be reflected into the inner space.
Family Get together - A family get together for a dinner Chinese has a deep-rooted concept of family reunion. Thus, every year they gather together through various ceremonies or festivals, and they eat together. Whether it is a happy event (happy=RED) or a funeral (sad=WHITE), it is a meal, while eating, drinking at the same time, to enhance each other's feelings. All people would meet, talk and eaten together. This place plan to commemorate the departed one is just like a custom-made private banquet for each family. A gathering, a dinner, it would be in memory of the departed one and healing the living person through eating the foods. Let all people have good feelings and go on.
Ancestral Hall Ancestral Hall-used to worship the ancestral shrine and also used to hold family marriages, funerals, birthdays, weddings, etc. From ancient times to the present, the places where Chinese people meet together would have arranged in ancestral halls for the sacrifice, festivals, and gathering together to eat a meal, it is custom and the meaning of reunion Therefore, I design a place like Chinese Ancestral Hallâ€™s environment to let people get together to talk, to eat and stay at outdoor under the sunlight.
Floor Plan The overall layout of the interior is designed with two floors which area L1 and L2. In L1 walk from entrance to the walkway and the Hall, and the L2 is the bow area and family room for dining. Relatives go up L2 through the curve stairs one by one, which has a meaning of farewell to their departed.

a brass column is designed at that center pool point toward the Sky. It can be imagined as an antenna connected to the Heaven. Furthermore, above the atrium, a sundial feature is designed to show the gathering time by the light projection, the showdown of pin is expressing the moment of cherishing togetherness.
In the time of family gathering, the time is short, but it is really too worth to have it. You will find that the reunion of the original life is one [minus], every time when you meet a time, you should realize that you lose a time to see again. All cherish the time to be together, can we turn the relationship into one [addition], it seems paradoxical but it is true.
