The design concept of Jing Si Books Cafe is based on Venerable Master Cheng Yen’s aspiration, accentuating on simplicity, oriental and creativity as the focal concept. Simplicity implies diligence and frugality, that is the ethical spirit of Jing Si. Making good use of the existing furniture, adding with a touch of designing and creativity, to make the old-fashioned furniture looks completely new, not only to exert the concept of cherishing the durability of material things, but most of all to polish it with an even higher added-value.
