Located underneath the old neighborhood next to Sincere city in Nanping, Chongqing, Fa Xi Studio（FXD） is a combination of a new office, a coffee shop and a multi-functional exhibition space, intervening and transforming the original space to give use as a functional space. The original space was the headquarters of a dry cleaners, with a few steps of height difference in the ground and a flower bed next to it, so the vegetation area was made outside using this height difference, preserving the principle of not destroying the original community model and intervening in the space. In the pursuit of the essence of space while balancing the relationship between practicality and beauty, a new spatial story is given and rejoicing occurs.
