Inspired from the four universal nurturing elements into our design plan, say sun, air, plants and water, the designer incorporates the image of gerridae into formulating the facade of the architecture that is consistently coordinated with local environment as the city located among the surrounding landscape. Concerning the connection between human beings and nature, the designer conceptually consolidates the four basic elements from nature into the design plan, which are flowing air, abundant sunlight, greenery plants and landscape. Motivated by the biological feature of Gerridae with four stretching legs, the designer advocates four distinct architectural areas attaching to the main building. The structural invention embodying the modern and tradition factors delicately presents the exposed concretes on the facade of the building. Located at the southern of the main building, the pool not only properly reduces the surrounding temperature, but also comforts the stressful mindsets. The windows decorated on both the northern and southern area sustain indoor air circulation. Furthermore, the emergency escapes furnished from the ground to the third floor ingeniously isolate the office from the highway noise. The walls adorned with painted glass artistically display the medieval church atmosphere.
