Employment 

Freelancer, Wuxi, CN, interior architecture

Recently I accepted the butcher's case which located in an old Hutong. My client did really good business on the Internet so she would like to open a traditional but delicate store in an old place.
I provided several design concepts to her and chose the furniture as well and then decided together. After several meetings, now the butcher's is being renovated.

LYCS Architecture, Hangzhou, CN, Intern

Near 8 months I worked there and I met a lot of excellent people and participated in many interesting projects.
At the beginning of this internship, I was assigned to do construction drawings. I was so excited to do that because this was the area I had never touched. After two months I had drawn a lot of construction drawings for bathrooms, living rooms, gyms, parkings and also the door details. This job gave me a lot of real-world construction knowledge.Then I joined in another group which was designing the interior space of BAOYE Group co., ltd in Shanghai. I designed the whole second floor of A building. The whole second floor is an office space. I arranged the floor plan and designed the every room according to the big concept which they had proposed before.
This is very valuable work experience in my career.I really thank for them to pass on knowledge to me. Now I am a rich and strong designer.

Amber studio, Wuxi, CN, Interior designer

Amber Studio is a private architect helping friends to design their residential, commercial or office spaces. I am the main interior designer at Amber so I have to directly talk to my every client and update my design.
My first project in Amber is a customized GYM renovation which could be seen here(https://yajingzhigao.squarespace.com/work-avenue/#/gym-customizing/). Two young fitness instructors asked me to help them design their first GYM studio. They are pretty young as the same age as me so definitely they don’t have a lot of money to create the luxury style GYM. So I had to reduce big constructions in design and we also went to the second-hand store to find the old woods which could be reused. This was a valuable experience which I could work with my client, workers as well as building materials business. Now we finally finish this project and they run the gym well.
Amber is a small studio so every designer has to take in charge of every own case. I really appreciate I got the chance to work there because I grew up quickly and become more professional.
