The Gaiety Sales Center by TWAD Architecture

Home > Winners > #131259


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Gaiety

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Sales Center

INSPIRATION:
The project takes the profound cultural context of Foshan as the carrier, and absorbs the Taoist philosophy of returning to simplicity and nature. It adopts minimalist design languages, and creates simple folding lines and a large number of outdoor scenes to highlight the elegance of landscape. The minimalist building exterior and the exquisite cave-like interior space are full of visual variations and details. The main building accentuates visual and spatial experiences with an open gesture.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
1. Water surface and building create interplay of solid and void, reflection and natural vibe. 2. Building is integrated on three sides, with south-facing shade and west-east air flow. 3. Roof is folded. Northwest corner drops to form double-sloping roof and soften interior space. Northeast corner rises to create an iconic hall entrance. 4. Blocks are divided to create a courtyard outside and symmetric view and separate two functions. 5. Building and landscape are fused. Fluid space widens the view.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
According to the design requirements of the main building with an area of 500sqm, the project adopted a single block, and combined the design elements with minimalism and 3D overlapping design techniques, so as to cut, bend and stretch the main building and endow it with more functions and artistic value. The project perfectly shows the design concept of a great architectural work with a simplistic form.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Started in 12 April, 2019; Completed in 19 April, 2020; Location: Beibeijiao Town, Shunde District, Foshan, Guangdong Province, China

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
1. The stones adopt 4 modulus widths, and are spliced in an irregular manner, which are unified and aligned with the glass with 2m modulus. 2. The roof marble is beveled, and the roof and the wall are integrated.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
1. Stone curtain wall seamed by glue has 7 standard sizes. North facade made of non-standard stone has 2 sizes. Roof formed by non-standard stone and dry-hanging honeycomb stone has 3 sizes. 2. North-south facades are made of glass curtain wall. East-west facades are created by metal-framed glass curtain wall. Upper part of west side uses metal louver for shading. 3. Beam and column are made of reinforced concrete with 3 sizes. 4. Steel structure covers 16# steel channel and steel pipes of 2 sizes.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Tang Xiaolei was appointed to lead the team. The team revised different schemes, compared master plans, polished product and checked facade effect. In the implementation stage, detailed re-modeling of structure and curtain wall diagram was conducted, with model guiding on-site construction. The team traveled two places many times, set samples on site, worked with the construction staff, and went to Nanhai Museum for main facade stone selection. Completed building finally realizes design concept.

CHALLENGE:
1. Due to the folded top form, the widths of the metal skirting at the top and the glue seam on the south facade were respectively changed to 11mm and 4mm, so as to ensure that there is no dislocation in the connection of metal rods on the top of the south facade and guarantee the accuracy of architectural details. 2. Lighting effect is added inside the 150mm drain at the top.
