According to the designer, design is an art, but not just an art. Design itself is rooted in life, but higher than life. And it should always reflect the material and technological level of its time, as well as be part of the change and development of social ideology.
Design is, in GU Hao’s opinion, both a way for us to talk to nature and to learn from nature. So that we can establish an emotional connection between human and nature in the living room there are metope partition which is similar to organism in form and condole top that extends like cell. They symbolically trace the origin of life.

The design style in the overall space is very concise. The use of large area white in the space make the experience, emotion, thinking and memory of life being part of the space itself in order to make it a real place to live.

Nature is a great designer and designers endue space with the ultimate experience of the details of nature. The kitchen is green, showing us the beauty of mountains, rivers, forests, oceans and diverse species as well as the whole meticulous and exquisite ecosystem.

Well-designed lighting accentuates the space. And the light makes all elements in the space eventually be in harmony with each other.
In addition, the collocation of different materials increases the interest of the space, shapes a rich visual sense and eventually creates unusual experience. At this moment, the real needs of the residents become the soil for the inspiration of designers where it takes root and sprouts.

Life space must return simple. This will be a stage where colorful life take place. Designer play a roll of painter who use time as the pigment and paint in the white three-dimensional space. It is the imagination of life and love of nature what space can give us.
Artworks are distributed in every corner of the space. Both Eucalyptus vase and contemporary well-known artworks become a clever stroke which figures the space temperament.

Deep purple is the mass-tone of bedroom which together with black, white and grey creates a quiet bedroom atmosphere. Bedroom become the place in the home where people can rest quietly. The overall design seems to be at will but it is actually full of designer’s exquisite ideas.
Art is subjective and creative production created by human beings. Everything seems to be abstracted from natural plants. Flowing forms and winding lines which are full of inner vitality embody the endless creative process.
