The porch originates from China. It is a unique term for the cultivation of Chinese Taoism. It was first derived from the Tao Te Ching: it is both mysterious and mysterious, and the door of many wonderful things. Although the porch is small in size, it is used frequently, which is the only way in and out of the house. The porch is the place that gives people the first impression and the “face” that reflects the host’s cultural temperament.
At the junction of indoor and outdoor, a porch is a buffer place, a concrete and microcosm, a prelude to music, a preface to prose, and a channel for wind, sunshine, and warmth. Using the stone porch, the sensory experience brought by guests entering the door is unmatched by other materials.
The concept of porch originates from China. In the past, the “shadow wall” (or photo wall) seen by Chinese houses is the predecessor of a porch in the modern home. Chinese traditional culture attaches importance to etiquette, pays attention to being implicit and introverted, and has a “Tibetan” spirit. Reflected in the residential culture, “shadow wall” is a vivid portrayal, which not only makes outsiders unable to directly see the activities of people in the house but also forms a transitional space in front of the door through the shadow wall, which not only guides the direction for visitors but also gives the host a sense of domain.
In the modern home, the porch is the first scenery to open the door. All the highlights in the room are hidden behind the porch. Before walking out of the porch, all short-term imagination may become a reality. At the junction of indoor and outdoor, a porch is a buffer place, a concrete and microcosm, a prelude to music, a preface to prose, and a channel for wind, sunshine, and warmth.
