It was an atelier and a store. This project had start from think about that would not be able to art become more familiar or accessible things for everyday life. There was also a challenging aspect that wonder if it would be able to continue art explore without belonging to art galleries or museums.

The place was formed while listening to the voice of the town(customers and neighbors). It was nine years in the blink of an eye, and a great adventure to do in one place. 

About the logo: The behind eye looks back a past, the front eye looks to a future, the two eyes are staring at now. The logo represents "cherishing old knowledge, acquiring new" the Analects of Confucius.
