landpoint：This is a colorful art gallery, which contains special artistic works that are drawn by sunlight. Through the interaction between sunlight and stained glass, the architects bring sunshine and rainbow to this gray city.
– Design Idea-
Idea of Landscape • City • Artistic Life
Entrusted by Sino Ocean Real Estate Company, we came to the city of Shi Jiazhuang in October, 2017. The first impression the city left us was monotonous. Although it is an orderly city but it lacks beauty and vitality.
This project is included in the company’s real estate demonstration zones. But we hope that this landscape construction is not only created for the purpose of sale, but also for a magnificent and colorful urban life through artistic means. We intend to create a “Museum of Art and Life in the City” – in which not only the romantic scenery and pure and touching art sculptures are included, but also a lawn for holding art salon activities. We advocate an elitist lifestyle filled with artistic atmosphere.
Theme • Sunshine
The name of the project is “Sheng Ting”, which means “sunshine in the afternoon”. This is what inspires us to put forward the design concept of the project – “Through artistic means, it brings color and artistry to the grey and dull city”.
“Explain sunshine through art”
By enhancing the saturation of the environment, we give visitors a rich experience of colors.
The clear weather is colorful and highly saturated. However, Shi Jiazhuang is a city with more cloudy days than sunny days. But we can improve the purity of color of the environment through glass refraction and stainless steel mirror that reflects the sunlight of sky and trees. Even in cloudy days, it still gives people a touch of rich and bright colors of the surrounding environment. In this project, we have mainly used two special means.
Through colorful glass to reflect sunlight. A lot of colorful glass is used in the building, including the gate, corridor and the sample rooms. The sunlight is reflected by the glass and then projected into the courtyard to show different colors. Through this, it creates many attractions such as chromatic gates, the gallery of light, colorful living rooms and so on. The glasses of different colors complement with each other to enhance the saturation of the entire park, and the unique transparency of the glass also gives its projection a rich and gorgeous visual effect.
Blue pool. The material of the bottom of the pool is chosen from blue diamonds embedded with crystal. The crystal in the material can shine without sunlight. And when the weather is clear and the sun is shining, the water will become blue and the waves will sparkle under the sunlight.
Use light and shadow to display the change of times and seasons:From the spring equinox to the winter solstice, from sunrise to sunset, the projection varies with the intensity and angle of the light. As time goes by, the walls and the grounds in the park are projected with “colorful paintings of the light”. Visitors will have different visual experiences in different weather and seasons.
The form of “circle” is extracted to create a series of sculptures based on the sun.
△城市地标——日晕之环 City landmark – the ring of solar halo
△水天交融——内庭水池中央球体雕塑 Mixing water and sky – the round-shaped sculpture in the center of the courtyard pool.
△大门雕塑——日晕曲线 Gate sculpture -the curve of solar halo

The creation of city: Sundial Plaza
An annular art sculpture is created as the spiritual landmark of the city. The shallow pool around the square provides a playground for children. The ring is endowed with the dual meaning of “sun” and “ring”, which implies that the city is linked to the sunshine.
The outer street of the demonstration areas will be a permanent commercial street in the future. We have preserved the existing roadside trees and based on the architectural texture, we also built a square that serves urban residents. The solar halo sculpture in the Central Plaza is a landmark in the region. The elliptical mirror pool lifts the circular spray sculpture that is 7.9 meters high. The twelve time clocks on the pool is built on the basis of the ancient sundial. At every clock, the fountain will sprinkle water.
Landmark Sculpture: A solar halo–A huge circular mirror sculpture replaces the usually appeared spiritual sculpture as a street landmark. This sculpture reflects the light of the sky just like a huge ring. Shining brilliantly, the circle symbolizes the sun and the pool symbolizes the sundial. There are 12 time clocks in the pool, which imitates the ancient sundial plate. The implied meaning of the sculpture is: “to associate sunshine with life”. By adding a spray system to the ring, the water drifts with the wind and forms a rainbow under the sunlight, creating a romantic and artistic atmosphere.
The entrance of art gallery
Through the interpenetration of simple geometric shapes, a gate with a taste of art is created. When visitors look through the colorful door to the garden, A deconstructive painting is presented in front of them. The landscape of the garden was deconstructed by the lines and blocks on the leaf of the door.
The Gate of Color – An abstract painting is presented to the visitors as they look through the colored door in the garden.
The Hall of Illusion
The first scene after entrance, is a colorful corridor with water fall extending into the water pool. Through skylights, the sunlight forms shadow under the trees. The light and shade of stained glass are projected onto the ground and side walls. Even if in a static scene, it would also present an ever-changing scenery.
The blue mirror pool • The vestibule of the clubhouse
The building of the sales office is in the middle of a blue mirror pool. The bottom of the pool is built from blue diamond cobblestones. Even in cloudy days, the water is blue and shining, which improves the overall color saturation of the landscape.
A compartment floats on the surface of the pool. There is a table leading the water into the compartment area. This area is spacious, giving visitors a place to relax.
The Gallery of Light
The corridor that leads from the sales offices to the model rooms, is a distinctive art gallery. The paintings that hang on the walls, are the light and shades formed by sunlight through stained glass. As time goes by, the pictures also change infinitely.
Colorful Warm Hall
There is a colorful semi-outdoor living room in front of the sample rooms. In the afternoon, the sunshine penetrates through the colorful glasses, forming a rainbow for every household.
We would continue introducing the concept of colorful warm hall to the building. The colorful hall is a living room outside residents’ own houses. With air conditioning, it intends to meet the needs of exchanges between neighbors in the winter.
After visiting the sample rooms, visitors walk along the gravel footpath to the colorful flower garden. And then through the quiet bamboo path, they reach an open sunny lawn. The sunny lawn is connected to the gallery of light, through which they can return to the sales office. This return journey is a stroll full of green. The beauty of nature brings visitors relaxation. The open space in the garden provides a place for future exhibitions of interesting and interactive art installations, as well as a living space for recreational activities.
This is our proposal for artistic installations in the garden at the beginning of the design- the trichromatic curved glass device.
Through the lawn, visitors can return to the sales office.
