The villa of Mrs Panxia is close to the CCC gallery. The task was once again the design of façade at the beginning that later developed into a design of the whole house while keeping the original ground plan shape. The businesswoman, who lives with her husband and two children, had her own ideas about the function and furnishing o the house. Both these Beijing buildings use traditional materials, grey clay fired brick the same manner as the masterpiece of Czech baroque, familiar to me. Both buildings carry formal and structural references to traditional Chinese architecture.
Construction of buildings in lands far away is quite common now, and it enriches my spirit. Asia proved to be a continent, where I really could live. My frequent visits to China, which were necessary for success in these and other upcoming projects, resulted in a number of excellent social occasions, meetings, and a few great friendships.
