设计灵感 Inspiration


“Red leaves with stamens, beautify the city above wind” is the most authentic portrayal of Shenzhen Bougainvillea blooming. Meanwhile, the Bougainvillea also contains the connotation of youthful passion, tenacity and bravery. Therefore, the bougainvillea, the most symbolic representative of Shenzhen, has also become the source of inspiration for this project. The shape of its petals has been extracted, evolved, repeated and finally formed the plan layout, under the concept of “Longhua Blossom”.

设计解读 Explanation


We adopted the shape of bougainvillea petals as the basic elements of the design, and set up a three-layer landscape sequence of petal-shaped planters, platforms, and waterscapes from outside to flow into the building entrance. The petal shapes form a flexible boundary, expanding the width the depth of the space.  At the same time, the petal-shaped planters are like green stepping stones connecting the urban greens to the southeast, and Guanlan Reiver to the northwest.


▼精神堡垒 The entrance signage



The entrance signage is set at the entrance of the vehicular traffic near the sales gallery. The planters at the entrance of the gallery is equipped with leaf sculptures and project LOGO to reinforce the theme.

Dreamy starry lights and streamlined water features direct the flow of people into the sales gallery. The sculptures are just like bougainvillea petals falling into the water, accompanied by the sound of flowing water, creating a tranquil Atmosphere.

小结 Conclusion


Shouchuang Longhua Centre is a small and neat project. Because the landscape area is so limited and the programs are complicated, it brought to us a lot of re-thinking about the urban environment. In the context of ever-shrinking urban spaces, how to create interesting and popular small is a topic that we need to explore in future practices.
