花西子杭州西湖隐园店｜Florasis Yin Yuan, The Lake Xizi Store, Hangzhou
The upper and lower courtyards are hidden in the city.
Feel free to put on different style of makeup.
In ancient China, most of the people who built gardens wanted to live in seclusion more elegantly. Here, “reclusion” is a very positive, unrestrained, free, and elegant attitude toward life. “Reclusion” has been an important part of Chinese culture since ancient times, it is the spiritual pursuit of literati and refined scholars, and it is an oriental romance full of artistic atmosphere.
The biggest feature of the entire space is the integration of Chinese hermit culture into the modern beauty space design. Chinese garden landscaping techniques are here to show modern charm. This urban garden hidden by the West Lake is divided into two floors, the upper courtyard and the lower courtyard. The lower part is a lively retail area, and the upper part is a quiet art space. Rather than saying that Yin Yuan is a shop, it is better to say that it is a fashion and beauty art gallery. During the tour, the dizzying artistic elements are left blank in the large area, and it is more leisurely to visit the exhibition.
“Reclusion” does not mean avoiding the world negatively, but not showing off, showing ingenuity and ingenuity. The white “flower shadow wall” on the facade of the Yin Yuan seems to have borrowed the vast expanse of lake light from the West Lake. The magnificent scenery echoes with the West Lake. The other side is the “moon waiting window”. The ancients waited for the moon instead of admiring it, because waiting is a romantic thing, enjoying the process of waiting, and the happiness of delayed gratification is doubly precious today. The landscaping techniques of Chinese gardens pay attention to concealment, first hiding and then revealing, and first suppressing and then raising. The flower screen wall uses the method of garden barriers to hide the most beautiful scenery behind the wall, waiting for visitors to explore by themselves.
A large area of the indoor floor is made of white marble, and the whole body is white. White marble began to be used as a palace building material in the Han Dynasty. The brand uses “jade” to build gardens. In addition to paying tribute to traditional Chinese gardens, it also uses the warm and moist characteristics of jade to endow the entire space with greater inclusiveness and will not turn people away. Outside, the square inch shows the mood of restraint, peace, openness and acceptance. If people take a closer look, they will find that there are some natural lines between the white jade, and the unique color difference echoes the natural view of nature. It does not undergo too much artificial carving and modification, and gives the greatest respect to the oriental charm and architectural heritage of white marble itself.
Different from the vitality of the lower court, the upper court is more quiet and more elegant. The winding path zigzags up, which reproduces the elegance of ancient people’s winding path to explore the seclusion. Looking left from the winding path, people can also find the “lake” hidden in the garden. The West Lake water is led into the garden by the projected light, and it shines on the four walls, where the virtual and the real intersect. Although the winding path is a ladder, it is quiet because of the noise, as if opening the door to explore oneself from the outside to the inside. Along the winding path to the secluded place, the long corridor is “Jiguangjian”, which is also a hidden high-definition art gallery. Jiguang, taken from the phoenix feather, implies the treasures in the world; the stream means the mountain is surrounded by water, and the entire promenade is the water flow hidden between the two mountains. Mountains carry the weight of culture, and water carries the long flow of culture, implying the thickness and inheritance of oriental culture.
In the Yin Yuan, there is the “Zhiyin Pavilion”. As a Chinese garden building, the pavilion is originally used for rest, enjoying the shade or viewing the scenery, but in the stories of setting up pavilions to bid farewell, later generations have placed cherished and reluctant emotions on them. The cash register is called Zhiyin Pavilion in Yin Yuan, which means that the high mountain meets the flowing water. This pavilion shows sincerity. Whenever people separate, they can meet each other eventually. The life of a hermit is comfort and blankness, a natural life between vertical and horizontal mountains and rivers, and a search for contentment and purity in the bustling world.
