Thanks EADG for authorizing the publication of the project on mooool, Text description provided by EADG.
EADG：The project is located in the core area of the Jiangbei mouth in Chongqing, surrounded by a pile of old buildings. How to break through this environment and how to prevent visitors from being disturbed by the old buildings when entering the art reception center are the difficulties in this design. The designer broke through the restrictions from original site in the urban core area, subverted the conventional sales office landscape, and outlined the ritual sequence of coexistence between nature and craftsmanship. The art reception center organizes the landscape rhythm to transforms the space and experiences a meditation journey in the light and shadow crisscross. Based on warm colors, the case combines the history with the romantic atmosphere of the modern city to create a landscape with fashion, artistry and decoration.
The inspiration of the entrance design comes from the stage curtain, which has a dramatic effect. The space situation with narrative plot showed up with the curtain opening. The entrance square is composed of a curtain and municipal roads, combined with the surrounding buildings. A sense of hierarchy and trees with different heights to create a rich visual landscape effect. The whole entrance square is like a ” immersive experience theater”. The modern culture in Chongqing is coming soon.
Through the dialogue between building materials and urban context, the elevation and elaborate shapes remind us of forests, mountains, valleys, rivers, clouds, fog, rain, snow and frost in the nature when facing the space here. The experience of synaesthesia brought about by design can really be presented to us with the change of time.
Dusk comes gradually, the air is full of grayish blue tones, the sky and horizon are slowly rendered rosy and the first star is lit up at night, and through the long curtain corridor, the home will be found in the poetry.
As Aldo Rossi said in his “Urban Architecture”: “memory is the soul of the city”. It is no doubt that to believe such a memory experience can make people remember Chongqing.
Because of the subsidence of the terrain in the space, the difference of elevation at the spatial level is very common in Chongqing, people can only reach the sales department through the ascending space. It is also because of the difference that the landscape experience has more richness and the design has correspondingly increased the difficulty.
The ground pavement with the deep color, which makes buildings presented the floating feeling under the difference between elevation and viewing angle. The front yard and the building are not in the same perspective. Architecture is in an active way to display itself, it has become an extension of the landscape of the courtyard front yard.
The design of the case seeks the eternal sense of order in modern language. The order of the array on the landscape corridor and the lighting arrangement are full of classical spirit. It is a heroic, elitist and epic design language.
Passage patio adopts the extremely modern sense of design vocabulary, this design method also responds to Baudelaire’s comment on modernity: ” Modernity is transition, brevity and chance, it is half of art, and the other half is eternal and unchanging … because almost all of our originality comes from the mark on our feelings from time … taking eternity from the transition. ”
The sales department courtyard
The final moving line is the courtyard that is in front of the sales department, the design adopts a very scenic scene. Exquisite lamps with ritual sense arrayed on both sides of the walkway, deliberately depressed modeling trees, and buildings with sculpture sense and classical meaning. All the spatial components are arranged for the upcoming events. It is an understanding of the “moment of convergence” in order to give visitors an emotional ” beat” when they come.
The calm water reflects the beautiful reflection of the building, the grill is delicately, the light is dim and the breath is attractive. It is packed and the entrance is becoming more and more attractive.

Outdoor negotiation area
Imagine sitting on a seat with sculpture sense at the edge of the water one night, listening to the gurgling sound of the water and the chirping of insects. There is a star in the west that can be seen in a slightly bright sky, the purple sky can vaguely perceive countless twinkling stars while in the east.
In this way, you can imagine the expansion of the vast universe. Thinking about the warm body of the beloved cat sleeping at you, rolled up a page of books in hand. At the moment of coffee, the breeze brushed the skin and seemed to feel the words of vegetation at that moment. In the boundless grandeur, we have experienced the comfort of living in a natural environment.

The visual changes of walking in the site are very violent and turbulent, with scenes changing step by step, from far to near, from passing to blocking. A large areas of water here and the independent modeling trees there, clear like plain here, deep like hole there.
It is a completely immersive theater experience, tracing back to the modern times and encountering a romantic scene in parallel space. A passage leads us into the romantic moment and meets in front of the magnificent building. We may meet more romance and gentleness.
