"Letu " gene
Kite surfing, stand-up paddling, mountain climbing, road trip, hiking and camping, connects the deep love for outdoor sports, gives more imagination to daily life, makes the life multifaceted, this is the gene why Letu exists.
Spatial field is full of energy, wildness and creativity, becomes the fashion gathering place of young people; gathering, departure, return and harvest happen here.
"Letu Chaowan" is adjacent to Changle Nanshan Park, only half an hour's drive from the city, and at a close distance to nature. The space is transformed from a self-built building. How to convey the genes and imagination of "Letu Chaowan" in the space is the focus of this design.
The outer courtyard is 183 square meters, and the indoor area is 424 square meters, meeting the multi-functional needs of outdoor camps and indoor parties. The overall space is dominated by gray and black, and the main materials are metal and cement to create a simple field.
In the interaction with nature, the space takes a step back and makes people and nature the protagonists.
We respect the building itself and protect the original appearance of the site, just for injecting new life form into space. Under the condition that the appearance of the original building cannot be demolished, an "additional" element is input to protect the original building without damage. On the facade, straight lines and geometric shapes are used to express spiritual expectations.
The perforated grid metal plate looks as if the "kite" in the sky, a symbol of freedom and distance. It is also like a wrapped "pyramid tent", adducting and enclosing. These overlapping, interweaving and juxtaposed lines create a three-dimensional modeling style.
The overall space is dominated by gray and black, creates the introverted and calm breath; and the main materials are metal and cement, cast unique sense of coldness and seriousness just like heavy locomotive. Under this high-end texture, space atmosphere also hides the power of burst at any time just like engine roar, howls coming with a kind of wrapped-up hot air.
Camp area of the outer courtyard
In the spacious outer courtyard, the gravel ground is fully integrated with the overall style. The blackened camping table and chair look simple but fashionable; the silver metal RV bar increases the depth and progression of the visual center.
In full consideration of the practicability of the space, the small courtyard is planned to include barbecue areas, bonfire areas, leisure areas, etc., to meet the needs of different groups of people and different activities. Folding windows are used both inside and outside, and the heavy bamboo floor is laid directly from the outside to the inside, blurring the boundaries of the space. While walking, we can feel the natural elements.
While people walk into the courtyard, experience the field domain shrouded by metal tent, look toward the building through the jungle at a distance; metal built stereo and solid texture always catch people’s eyes immediately.
Along with progression of levels, people can see the use of straight lines and geometric lines layer by layer; achieve the sharp appearance modeling and science and technology feeling structure; present a sense of modern fashion and future.
This design mode also provides higher strength and more stable structural support for appearance modification. Between the geometric lines, the perforated grid metal plate looks as if the "kite" in the sky, a symbol of freedom and distance. It is also like a wrapped "pyramid tent", adducting and enclosing. On the boundary of nature, hope that "Letu Chaowan" gives people a sense of security with adducting and enclosing state.
The indoor layout is based on on-site conditions and scene conception.
In terms of material composition, a metal frame is used, and the surface is covered with birch boards. The staggered height difference incorporates all functional areas, and the focused visual center presents the ups and downs of the space, thereby affecting the state of behavior between people. Just like a theater, the small-scale enclosure forms a closer field for performers or sharers, as well as audiences or friends, and creates an interactive perspective.
People sit in this atmosphere, their relations are intimate and distant, have blurred and clear boundaries.

People gathering here can have a blast, and also have own boundaries in company of strangers. But as long as you want, only one small leap, liveliness blends in.

Small cluster space
Outside the liveliness, "Letu Chaowan" gives people a quiet place. Jump up the stairs to the second floor, there are cigar room, teahouse, restaurant and other independent spaces for meeting the different needs of the masses.
The design takes black dominant tone, but use of textured paint, wooden floors, leather and other materials, including the geometric line elements throughout the overall space, make the space quiet and rich in high-end texture.

This unique space temperament also inspires people to leave temporarily the urban daily routine, go to nature and outdoors wantonly, walk into the crowd. When you meet the eyes, you can cheers with them tacitly.
Another way of life
People's daily life in the city is often just one way, but when you go outdoors, nature can always give you a sense of relaxation and provide another possibility for your life.
"Letu Chaowan" between the city and nature, watches and accepts the people coming and going just like “base camp”, and allows you to enjoy nature in the city.
