Shanghai Sheshang Golf Club is well known as the only place in Asia that can hold the World Golf Championships. Since Golf is a sports event and social activity originated in the West, how do we create a space that also integrates Chinese characteristics for socializing by means of literature?
Comfort and art.The comfort of Chinese style is beyond national boundary. It could be dull with only traditional elements and signs: For many people, the traditional stuff is not comfortable and not consistent with modern ergonomics. Instead, if we can present traditional living in a enjoyable way, people will be more willaing to accept and use it, no matter which country they come from.
The art of Chinese style also has no limitation in geographic location. Such elements as Chinese painting, tea preparation, Xiangqi, Chinese calligraphy, traditional couch and ancient tree root…combine to create a reading environment that is distinct from the western-style libraries. Like the ancient scholars, people can enjoy reading in a relaxed manner, while drinking tea, playing Xiangqi or appreciating the paintings, which is the essence of the Chinese traditional socializing with friends.
With comfort and art, a sanctuary amid the bustling golf course in Sheshan is created for the elites from different countries to gather and rest, and a new state of mind will occur naturally.
