Liu Painting Studio is a minimal artist studio located in Xi’an, China, designed by Atelier Mozh.

The space was renovated from what was originally an interior with low ceilings. The ceiling comprises of a circle at the center, meant to encourage collaboration and gathering. A curtain circulates around this center to allow for intimate gallery showings or used as a meeting space. The client wanted a space that would feel familiar, especially of those traveling from the West.

"Our work ranges from small scales such as furniture and tea house design, to hotels with over 4,000 m2. When we crossover different scales, we make sure that ‘the character of the whole image of architecture’, and ‘the rich experience that it generates’ coexist. In many cases, those are disconnected. For instance, the exterior photos are very beautiful, but when you go inside, it's a poor experience. We are trying every possible way to overcome the situation. For example, in our park gate and two bridges project in the Jinshan district of Shanghai, the entire building was designed to be knitted with a Corten steel mesh structure; allowing the powerful and delicate existence of the construction to be experienced. 'The former is the attitude of the building toward the surroundings; the latter is the consideration for the people who experience the space'. We want to create an architecture that has an appropriate relationship between the whole and its different parts." — Atelier Mozh
