The Tourists Service Center is located at the north foot of Songyan mountain in Huangyan district, Taizhou city, adjacent to the Huangqian line, at the southern end of orange garden. The local citrus museum is just across the river. The project aims to help the local tourism organization present a brand new tourism experience with a combination of visitor reception and citrus culture exhibition through the renovation and expansion of an old factory.

The newly added building area of the Tourists Service Center is about 600 square meters. The base allowed to be used is cramped and the construction conditions are harsh. Meanwhile the property owner wants to control the cost and the newly built part should be combined with the original building and the wooden frame of an old building should be retained. Moreover, the very short design cycle and construction time of the project itself are two biggest explicit challenges faced by the project from the very beginning.

In original double slope wooden frame and retention of the two old houses, the slope roof is one of the basic elements, so the original roof form should be kept on design. How to use the old and new roof space relation was conscious performance throughout the project. The design repeatedly stressed that the traditional and modern express the characteristics of the elements in the process. In terms of space, the newly added reception hall, catering service hall and leisure tea room are connected with each other through a courtyard space with great perspective and guidance. Although each space has different functions, it forms a subtle transition between public and private, noisy and quiet in the connection with the courtyard.

The whole project uses wood as the main material as much as possible, and expands the expression and characteristics of the building by combining modern materials such as steel and glass. In the entrance space, steel and wood materials are combined to extend the boundary of the original space. The open corridor space on the east side constitutes the facade of the whole building towards the entrance square. Scattered roofs and vertical rotating wooden louvers are not only the needs of form change but also an active adaptation to the site conditions.

The design attempts to use the combination of modern materials and original traditional materials to form a space atmosphere that can combine the local characteristics of orange culture with rustic and happy harvest, so that visitors can feel its traditional and modern rural temperament.
