L&A Design: The present sales center will later be transformed into the kindergarten of the community. The biggest challenge to realize the transfomation lies in how to balance the sales atmosphere and the function of a kindergarten. Beijing Luojia has specially made up a story about an alien “Haohaiyo”, which is integrated into the design of architecture, landscape and interior spaces. Contextual design skills are employed to describe Haohaiyo’s experiences on the earth. It aims to create a theme-park-style kindergarten.
At the end of the year 2018, Beijing Luojia and L&A Design (Beijing soft furnishing team) were commissioned by China Overseas Building (COB) to design for the sales center of Wangjing Mansion. As a low-density and people-oriented development, it is well equipped with a kindergarden and an elder care center. The project, which is used as the sales center now, will later be changed into the kindergarten of the community. How to balance the purchase experience and the community functions is the key challenge for the designers.
▼“陨石村”运用场景化的设计手法，完整再现了外星人“好海幼”来到地球的故事 Contextual design skills of the “Aerolite Village” are employed to tell the alien Haohaiyo’s experience on the earth.
In the universe stars and planets of all sizes are all composed of aerolites which symbolize human’s exploration to the outer space and the visions of the future. Aerolites will inspire children’s imagination. So the story of the “Aerolite Village” thus begins.
Contextual design skills are employed to tell the alien Haohaiyo’s experience on the earth, creating a children’s wonderland in the style of a Theme Park. Instead of only focusing on landscape, the designers have integrated interior, soft furnishings, outdoor landscape, equipment and facilities, sculptures and IP together, to create a sales center which will provide sci-tech experiences for children.
We hope to make sure the site is open and free like a vast universe. At the same time, we need some volumes to satisfy the children. Therefore, in the center of the garden we designed an embraced teaching space where you can play on the grass slope, walk along the starry milky way and listen to the teacher to explain the mystery of nature.

What’s more, the spaceship is the secret base for children, where they can climb, crawl, slide or pass through a tunnel. The Luojia team has created varied facilities for children to enjoy themselves to the most.
▼可攀、爬、滑、钻的飞船游乐基地 The spaceship is the secret base for children, where they can climb, crawl, slide or pass through a tunnel.
There two floors in the spaceship. Children can climb up to the second floor by the spiral net and then slide down along the tunnel. It will not only ensure their safety but also encourage the children to explore and have a great adventure. All the facilities are combined with sound, light or electrical technologies. With the mist sprays and waterwave lights along the starry road, it looks as if the spaceship is lauching. This scene is also perfect for taking photos.

The “aerolite” building is separated into five spaces: the reception center, the building model area, the negotiation area, the children’s playground and the atrium. Every space features different function and story, presenting the scenes during Haohaiyo’s time travel.

▼敞开式空间设计，将园区景观与自然光线引入室内，呈现明媚温暖的空间感受 Open space design introduces landscapes and natural light into the sales center, making the space bright and warm.
The aerolite village is full of mysterious symbols, which are gifts left by the alien. The designers have also selected some elements from the IP story and created a unique sinage system within the village. The entrance and the signs are designed in modern simple style, while the signs on the ground are surprises to interest the children.

The linear furred ceiling, the aerolite huts of different sizes and the spiral reading space will allow all the children to enoy themselves in the environment.

The artrium of the aerolite building is relatviely narrow. When we were communicating with the developer, You Rui, the design director of COB believed that we need more vertical elements to strench the space. Therefore, a big slide rising through the sky trees was created to meet different requirements.
▼大滑梯从三层直下，横跨整个中庭 The big slide runs down from the third floor and stretch across the atrium.
The walls, the slide and the sky tree are painted in pink to extend the interior space visually. The yellow balls piled in the pool and the colorful sheets on the ceiling sway with the sunlight, integrating the story of the aerolite village into reality. The big slide runs down from the third floor and stretch across the atrium. Cylinder slide connects with U-waving slide and then extends to the sea of balls, enriching the space experience.
▼大量的粉色在墙面、滑梯、天空树的艺术装置上，扩充了室内的体积感 The walls, the slide and the sky tree are painted in pink to extend the interior space visually.
▼球池里堆积的黄色，吊顶吊装炫彩的装饰片随着阳光摇曳 The yellow balls piled in the pool and the colorful sheets on the ceiling sway with the sunlight.
The negotiation space on the third floor is the base for aerolite villagers to explore the space. With a fantastic glass ceiling, it allows children to observe the starry sky with the prepared telescopes.
To realize the project full of imagination, it depends largely on constrution and on-site coordination. The complexity of construction needs efficient communication and mutual understanding as well as close collaboration. The aerolite village has also developed a series of derivatives. The completion of a good project depends on the cooperation and support of all partners. We are especially thankful to You Rui, Jiang Xuan, Wang Yan, Yu Xiaosen, Hei Zhiyuan, Wang Jinhui and Du Wenbiao from the design department of China Overseas Building (Beijing), who provided trust and support that greatly assisted the presentation of the project!
