Home > Winners > #63372


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Xixi Center

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Office and Business Building

INSPIRATION:
The site is located on the north side to Xixi National Wetland Park with superior landscape resources. However, due to the expansion of urbanization, the region has been rapidly developing under the push of the local government. A high density city center with modern high-rise office buildings and luxury residences is being gradually formed beside the nature park. The project is a 246,000 square meters building complex of offices, business and some supporting facilities in this area.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
With the aim of landmark and openness, four L-shaped slab buildings with large openings are used to encircling the site due to the landscape cross. The internal volume is modeled on the traditional wetland settlement pattern. It ensures the maximum utilization of landscape resources and strengthens the sense of place as an understated elegance park. Simple and reasonable structures present a non-conventional visual impression, making the buildings a group of futuristic city sculptures.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
We set up different design strategies on the external and internal interface. The huge volumes of the external interface make the building a visual focus of the region. Large openings invite everyone to come in and share a good public space. The internal volume is modeled on the traditional wetland settlement pattern. By analyzing the spatial characteristics of Xixi Wetland, architects extract the typical wetland space form, combine with the traditional Chinese courtyard space, try to express the essence of wetland architecture space with modern architectural techniques.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in October 2012 and the construction finished in December 2016 in Hangzhou,China.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
For economic considerations, architects have decided to simplify the complex surface morphology and use the conventional construction strategy to realize the unconventional visual impression. The three-dimensional irregular form and structure is realized by dividing the block by the two-dimensional horizontal lines of sun-shading louvers. Large-span vierendeel steel truss is used for the large opening. Descending the bottom plate of the revolving door to realize the frame free design. The core tube is set on one side, providing more possibilities for the plan. Revit was used to ensure the building quality.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Site area: 74301 m2 Built area: 246046 m2 Ground area: 148602 m2

TAGS:
Landmark, Openness, Accessibility, Irregular, Modular, Office & Business, Mixed-use

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Compared with small scale projects, large volume project design needs a more prudent design strategy. Architects take the responsibility of building the high quality urban space, dig into the potential value of the business logic, break away from formulaic style and priori establishment, seek a delicate balance between modernity and localization, and gradually solve the severe problem.

CHALLENGE:
Respect for the original wetland landscape, the project aims at integrating the project into the natural environment of the site. How to design a high quality urban space, redefine the image of a landmark building, while maintaining cultural tradition of the Xixi wetland spirits, becomes the major challenge of this project.
