River One Residential by Shanghai PTArchitects

Home > Winners > #116059


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
River One

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential

INSPIRATION:
Chongqing is also known as the 'Mountain City' due to the large range of elevation within the city. The architect thus adapts his designs to the local terrain and carefully considers the orientation and height of every building so that each apartment has an unobstructed view of the landscape. The resulting height differences of the entrances are smoothed over by the elevators and stairs within the landscape design. The waterfall in the central courtyard and various other landscape elements are used to solve the inherent height difference of the area, and further create a natural playground for children and adults.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The project is located in the Liangjiang New Area of Chongqing, between the Jiangling River and Zhaomu Mountain Park in an area of developed traffic. Such high quality landscape resources provide an excellent living environment. The project consists of two areas of residential land and one of commercial land, totaling in 220,000 square meters. The first residential phase has been developed and consists of nine apartments with 223 households in a construction area of 60,000 square meters.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The architect recreates Gele Mountain’s shapes in the Sales Center of the project, making them one with their surrounding landscape while introducing a certain elegancy to them. The building echoes the terrain of the landscape and takes on an undulating surface made of metal and glass, making the experience simultaneously real and virtual and eliminating all elements of confinement upon entering. The perforated metal plates on the surface become spots of starlight at night, introducing a dreamlike state. The various textures of metal are combined to create a unique visual effect. When working with the various angles and shapes of the aluminum plates, the architect numbered each plate and positioned them accordingly with the help of 3D programming.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in October 2017 and finished in August 2019 in Chongqin, China

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Taking into consideration the surrounding high-end real estate, the architect includes the essential furnishings of a luxury apartment. The façade of the apartments is divided into thirds and adopts a point-line-plane-solid motif to emphasize the building’s architectural and sculptural qualities. The ground floor employs a muted palette of stone materials and is juxtaposed to the building’s dense and compact horizontal elements.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The modular sections of the building are outlined by silver-gray aluminum plates and fitted with glass, combining modernity with luxury. Wood-grained aluminum panels separate the windows from the balconies and introduce an element of warmth to the color scheme. These two contrasting elements of metal and wood give expression to both reason and nature. Optimizing the horizontality of the aluminum plates, the upper and lower frames are cut into cornices, not only improving indoor lighting but also enriching the surface of the building.

TAGS:
residential, sculptural qualities, enclosed layout, high quality landscape resources

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Each apartment features a large, horizontally orientated hall that optimizes ventilation and lighting. The suites are characterized by multiple designs and layouts to accommodate various family lifestyles, covering the needs of all age ranges.

CHALLENGE:
The overall plan employs an enclosed layout that allows for two different waterfront experiences. The first row of buildings faces the Jialing River and sits 26 meters above it, maximizing the view of the exterior natural landscape while also allowing for a view of the garden complex from the ground floor. The second row of buildings centers around the waterscape within the complex and becomes one with the fluid and interior space. The enclosed complex measures 190 meters from north to south and 45 meters from east to west and includes a 800 square meter water feature, creating a system of rivers and waterscapes that establishes a calm and serene living environment.
