Beijing Jinyu Vanke Plaza Retail by LDPi (China Branch)

Home > Winners > #37643


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Beijing Jinyu Vanke Plaza

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Retail

INSPIRATION:
The idea behind the exterior lighting was to create a magic box, that would have a very different character by day and by night, when it would come alive with color-changing lighting. The box is surrounded by a ribbon made of squares dispersed onto the facade and the landscape. The interior lighting, created in cooperation with interior designer Benoy, is designed to give another dimension to the magic box, creating a dreamlike experience and a surprising view of stars through its organically-shaped skylight.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Beijing Jinyu Vanke Plaza is a shopping center that opened at the end of 2013 in the district of Changping. The 140,000 square meter shopping center includes a department store, supermarket, entertainment facilities, restaurants and other services. The facade is a magic box made of glass and curves with neutral color palette. With a long skylight stretching over the main, harvesting daylight was from the beginning of the design by the architect Woods Bagot.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
As this is a shopping center, its operation remains in the hand of the property management of the client.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The lighting design part of the project started on December 27, 2010 in the Changping District of Beijing, China and the project had a soft opening on November 27, 2013.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
In the glass box, low-voltage 5500K white LED strips were hidden under the arc-shaped pattern behind the glass curtain, allowing the indirect reflected lights to form a soft arc-shaped light ribbon. High-voltage RGB linear LED projectors were also hidden in the beams to enhance the texture of the facades while enabling color-change in the glass box. Linear 3000K LEDs highlight the random window-like pattern carved in the metal panel curtain wall. Also on the facade, high color rendering index LEDs highlight the content of the advertisement areas. LEDs not only allowed the skylight to be an icon of the interior, but also functional LED down lights lowered the interior energy consumption. The final Watts per square meter: 1.18 W/m2 (facade), 17.6 W/m2 (interior), 1.4 W/m2 (landscape).

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Experiments were an important factor in the realization of the facade lighting effect. Through the cooperation with Woods Bagot, several 1:1 mockups were necessary to determine what lighting effect would be most efficient (beam angles, wattage and color temperature), how and where exactly to properly install the lighting fixtures in the glass box behind the curtain wall.

CHALLENGE:
The idea behind the exterior lighting was to create a "magic box" that would have a very different character by day and by night, when it would come alive with color-changing lighting. The box is surrounded by a "ribbon" made of squares dispersed onto the facade and the landscape. The interior lighting, created in cooperation with interior designer Benoy, is designed to give another dimension to the magic box, creating a dreamlike experience and a surprising view of stars through its organically-shaped skylight. Lighting was considered at a very early stage of the architectural design. Preliminary hand sketches showed initial requirements made on the curtain wall and beam structures that were further refined when LDPi was later engaged in the project with final dimensions that allowed lighting fixtures to be installed adequately. In additions, various mock-ups were necessary to confirm the anchor points as well as the beam angles of the lighting fixtures installed on the facade. Beneath skylights, where daylight comes in, lights are flexibly turned on or off according to the time of the day. For most of the day, around 70% of the lights are used. From sunset until closing time (22:00), the remainder of the lights are turned on, then after business hours about 30% of the lights are left on for the center to be cleaned.
