Room With A Mountain View In Downtown Of Shanghai – Design You Trust

Room With A Mountain View In Downtown Of Shanghai

A residential building in Shanghai’s Changning District has a distinctly different view in the concrete jungle. Those looking out the window will have the view of a 50-meter high mountain!

The artificial mountain was completed in 2003. Its design was based on Feng Shui, a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing people with their surrounding environment. The design aimed to “moderate the ferocious location of the building”.

Upon seeing photos of the artificial landscape, some netizens argued that Feng Shui is pseudoscience, and that all the rooms will get is poor lighting.
