中國建築營設計工作室(Archstudio)《水岸佛堂》座落於河北唐山,為前來禮佛的香客提供了一個參佛、靜思、冥想的寧靜場所。
Beijing-based practice Archstudio has designed the minimalist ‘Waterside Buddhist Shrine’ in the northern Chinese province of Hebei, to be an immersive experience close to nature for visitors to the site.

佛堂位於林間河畔,並與周圍的景觀交融,隱於樹影水流之中,靜謐平和。空間中五個連續卻又功能各異的空間有序地依照兩條軸線分佈;一條軸線順著河流的方向延伸,大面積的開窗將河景引入室內,並保持著室內的通透與流暢;另一條軸線則是南北向。五個空間分別對應不同的功能:入口大廳、禮佛室、茶屋、起居室,以及一間衛浴空間,共同建構出一個完整細心的生活體驗,設計師說到:「這是一個有能量的地方,在這裡人的認知能與周邊的樹、水,以及佛共存。」
The project is situated between forest and river, and aims to create a peaceful space in harmony with the surrounding landscape. “Five separated and continuous spaces are created within the building by two axes, among which one is north-south facing, and another one goes along the river,” explains the firm. The five divisions represent five calm spaces with different functions: an entrance, the Buddhist meditation room, a tea room, a living room, and a bathroom, which form a mindful experience altogether. “It is a place with power of perception where trees, water, Buddha, and humans can coexist,” the firm continues.

空間的框架由木材與玻璃定義而成,在景觀中和諧的劃分出室內外的界線。室內空間則以單色調維持了簡約的洗鍊感。佛龕的獨特設計與室內莊嚴神聖的氛圍將此處打造為一處靜思、禪修的絕佳去處。
The venue is defined by a material palette of wood and glass, with a tonal color palette and pared-back interior. The shrine’s unique design and peaceful internal rooms provide a wonderful space for and meditation.
