茗芗涧(Ming Xiang Jian) / Meditation Space

茗芗涧(Ming Xiang Jian)
茗芗涧(Ming Xiang Jian)

Ming Xiang Jian is a regimen chamber for meditation. Ming as tea house, Xiang as fragrant room, Jian as spa space. The concept of this facility is for users to rest in a relaxing environment, reducing the stress level of the people and eventually improve their overall mental and physical health conditions.

The design is combined with the Taoist concept of “no start no end” and the construction concept of “nature and humanity” view of nature and the environment from western Sichuan, using natural conditions and artificial means to make the harmony of nature, architecture and people.
