DOMANI:Sanxi Village, located in the southeast of the East District Street, Zhongshan City, began in the Qing Dynasty. It is located in the valley of the northern foothills of Wugui Mountain, surrounded by mountains and rivers. It is one of the traditional villages with relatively complete original ecology in the main city of Zhongshan. There is a poem: “In the middle of the mountains surrounded, the situation is winding a bend. Looking at the Qingxi six or seven miles, the smoke villages are arranged two or three horizontally. There are forests to block the enemy from the north, and 800 acres of fertile fields in the front.”




Times China presented another masterpiece in 2020: Times·Dreamland. The community is located at east of Sanxi Village, with area of about 40,000 square meters, and construction area of about 96,000 square meters. The high-end residential ecosphere is built with an ultra-low FAR(Floor area ratio) of 2.0. The center of the project has an open area of 2,700 square meters high end club. For this project, Times China once again worked with the top design agency DOMANI Architectural Concepts. (integration of landscape architecture and indoor products).



想象的乡土 Imaginary homeland 



If you want to openly point out the creative type of this project, the designer is more inclined to try to interpret the retrieval and abstraction of contemporary country representations through an integrated project.

“Local is an intangible concept, it is montage of memory. This representation arises from a series of interweaving relationships: the mechanism of history and geography, the relationship between production and reproduction, the operation and practice of the government, the medium and form of the interaction of people; etc. We call a kind of diversity or phase in general as local, and we define a kind of unstable things.” Yu Lin said.In this sense, the local countryside is an imagined community.


空间认同 Spatial identity


In the process of urbanization in China today, most people or families are middle class. The modern constructions of modern cities intend crush people’s memory with time and space in an unprecedented capacity and intensity, so identity is becoming a major and significant meaning. People are increasingly not wanted to be defined by what they are doing but constructing their own meaning according to what they are or what they believe in. The same with spatial identity. People neither subject to space, nor place themselves above space. People’s intuition is to try to be a part of the chaos in the space and to find their own sense of existence from the chaos.



特群空间 Special group space



Today, most people still live in an environment that increasingly expansive and fixed, and the new architecture has always tried to reorganize the fragments of life rituals and space functions into an organically system that is not rigid and stagnant, with a rather soft touch, it updates on a daily bases, with subtle minor changes instead of rough subversion.

When we extend our living space outwards, should we emphasize the private or the public part? We must know that most of the middle and high-income families who live in groups have become accustomed to some torn spatial connection. This starts with the scale of a hundred feet square. The modernized residence is annihilated in macro-city. On the other hand, Chinese people at a larger level are accustomed to finding subjective cognition of their own meaning in imaginary memory. So, there is a complex possibility engraved between public space and private space—special group space, which comes from differences. Designers make this a product outcome by gaining market resonance. At the same time, this also brings discussion of the possibility of two product strategies for the broad real estate market: first, project logic is typed, design and construction are integrated, and functions are diversified. 2. Accurate proof and stratification of user types: capture more accurate related users and be compatible with a wide range of audiences.




The wrap-around trail with a walking time of about 3-5 minutes runs through the public path of the park and the path of the clubhouse, the path demonstrate an rather emotional movement so that users have a dynamic experience of the main building in a certain time and space. The spatial horizontal composition along the north-south side to the long side enables the building’s surface to receive the golden sunshine time to the greatest extent. At this time, light and shadow become a kind of real-time scene superimposed on the artificial architectural like a layer of random chaos.





All the glory of the world is nothing but a patch of uncleanness. —— Edmund Spencer

The consideration and selection of materials comes from the local symbols, which is an obvious connection. But the more internal reason comes from the breathing and evolving characteristics of a permanent building. The designer spent nearly a year collaborating with suppliers to develop ceramic strip materials that fully restore the sense of soil. In addition to maintaining the high weather resistance and humid permeability of the fired ceramics, its mottled color difference needs to be fully changed with air, ultraviolet rays and rain after long-term use. It is basically applied to two installation technologies with different cost models, trough dry hanging and perforated metal keel combined with semi-masonry.






The main furniture for public spaces come from the custom-made product “Multipod” series of A&V. The arc edge design reduces the risk of collision in the public space with crowd. The Multipod leg structure meets the different lengths and heights of public space use. The tabletop is a 5mm thick solid aluminum plate, and the fine texture scratches that will be during long-term use are part of the design. Of course, for most users who are concerned about the loss of natural materials, the choice of this material does require explanation.

The gym equipment comes from Italy’s top fitness equipment brand-Technogym.




People who fled to the former Soviet Union to seek “freedom” in New York created a huge swimming pool, but the way they moved forward was to swim backwards in this floating pool. ——Koolhaas wrote a joke about the swimming pool.



 Circulation line efficiency


An overly effective connection makes the result of the connection the first priority and the process and purpose of the connection are ignored, just as the essence of the real garden is hidden in an inefficient periscope, which seems to be visible but must have a certain distance from it. The designer’s finishing touch point-the private kitchen “Jian” is hidden at the bottom of the pool. It is hidden and private. If it is not cost-constrained, people will be able to watch the scene form bottom of the pool.



十八人环形中餐台来自桉和韦森的高定线产品“The moon”,铜质台面将在适当的照明环境下如月色溢辉于室内。餐椅同样来自桉和韦森高定线产品,它是一款基于材料学形成溶胶硬性驳接的PVC透明板式座椅,匹配有令人意外的贴身舒适的人体工学角度设计。中轴吊灯选配自建筑师Peter Zumthor为意大利顶线灯具品牌Viabizzuno的创作,它拥有无与伦比的空间凝聚力。

The 18-person ring-shaped Chinese dining table is from A&V custom made product “The moon”, and the copper countertop will shine in the room like the moon under proper lighting. The dining chair also comes from A&V. It is a PVC transparent panel seat with a sol rigid connection based on material science, matching with an unexpectedly comfortable ergonomic angle design. The central chandelier is from Viabizzuno designed by architect Peter Zumthor. It has significant spatial cohesion.



第五面上悄然存在的SKY CLUB,在夏季入夜时分开放或供住户私定使用。

The SKY CLUB, which quietly exists on the fifth angle is open at night in summer or for resident use by reservation.




There is no temple like Delfa in this city. However, it is still a metaphor about ‘I’, silent or ignited at the same time of physical and psychological.
