Adjoining a lake, the house surrounded by the natural environment signifies an appeased lifestyle, of which the house owner’s childhood experience inspired the design plan that was based on the theme of a magnificent “life,” which reiterates the importance of an excellent house to sustain the quality of life. An exceptional architecture should be built on the basis of people and life, which is incubated by the architecture and space.
Portrayed as the gateway of Hongqiao Airport transportation hub, the project is deemed to generate synergy from public and commercial activities. East Tower and West Tower of this project are for office use. These towers are connected by a “sky exhibition hall”, with a rigid connection structure that currently attained the largest span and usable area in China.
As Party A settled down overseas, Does Design defined the building as a holiday villa. Unlike traditional holiday villas, it has an ancestral hall. The ancestral hall is not only for ancestor worship, but includes objects relating the past of the old house. In the future, used furniture and objects will be displayed in the room and it will be more like a family museum.After reconstruction, the building can meet needs of accommodation, family gathering and activity of children. Does Design hope it can carry memory, offer comfortable living experience and continue to grow.
We redesigned and reorganized the building and the spatial streamline. Through a combination between virtually and reality, a spatial transformation is carried out, which enables a free switch between “open” and “private” spaces, being one body from outdoor to indoor, facilitates the interaction between people and natural space, and meanwhile maintains a sense of privacy.
The most difficult part of the design work is to make a strong visual impact in a limited space, and meanwhile not exerting excessive pressure on the city and streets. Therefore, the designer put more contents on the second floor, and built it into a structure of cantilever. Thus, more spaces are released; a feeling of floating and a sense of art are created. While solving the space and function problem, the designer also ensures the inclusiveness and friendliness of the city and streets.
The original building is a 100-year-old Tianjin shipyard, respecting and paying tribute to the historical significance of the original building. The designer designed the project through the concept of a large ship driving on the sea, connecting the original showroom and the sales office which two separate buildings, through a corridor to form a complete building, and using the streamlined shape of the ship to design the building's outline, and with the design of the waterscape, the shape of thea large ship driving on the sea is formed.
