One Taste Holistic Health Club

One Taste Holistic Health Club Crox International

One Taste Holistic Health Club, located in this piece of heaven on earth between Hangzhou city’s Chenghuang Temple and the West Lake, is China’s first club that focuses on the healing of our minds. Caring for the society’s wellbeing, One Taste wishes for the development of our spiritual enlightenment, where they have pioneered an open forum for reunification, as we journey back to our own hearts. This is where avant-garde architect Tsung-Jen Lin, has incorporated western holism with eastern serenity to create a plane of Zen for our spiritual awakening.
Here lies a scene to escape to, a scene of the West Lake overlooked by the Chenghuang Temple, up on the mountains, where silent hazes and whispering mists rendezvous, a place to calmly attune your rhythm to the hymn of nature. Amidst this ethereal intertwining of wind and water, Lin has composed an air of fluidity within One Taste, focusing on the form of the lake water by using ripples as the main design concept.
“We often experience nature’s beauty from afar? generally from our comfort zones. A subtle separation can create the safety we need, and from a place of peace, we can then enjoy and ponder the wonders and beauties of nature.
