Thanks YASDESIGN for authorizing the publication of the project on mooool, Text description provided by YASDESIGN.
YASDESIGN：Located in Zhengzhou City, the project is situated at the place where Huaxia Avenue and Wanghu Road meet. It borders Shuanghehu Central Park and the Lake CBD on the east and locates near to Shuanghehu Station along the Beijing-Hong Hong-Macao Expressway on the west, boasting rich resources around. The simple and elegant sales center is composed of three BOXes carved in different directions. Columns and corridors integrate the spaces horizontally and vertically. In addition, with distinctive landscape functions and smooth visit route, the whole demonstration area is designed to present a modern, artistic, elegant and tranquil community.
触类旁通 Comprehend by Analogy
“Hidden Excellences” is the 40th Chapter of “Dragon-Carving and the Literary Mind” written by Liu Xie. Here “Hidden” has its gist and connotation beyond the literal meaning, while “Excellences” refer to the outstanding sentences in a passage. The gist of the passage is about relationship between language and meaning from the angle of creation and the rules of artistic creation from the angle of rhetoric. The “hidden” meaning will enable people to comprehend by analogy and have a taste the beauty of the literature.
“GIN”: Gin, also called geneva, is one of the most famous alcoholic drinks in the world. As a special cultural form, alcohol is a fashionable and popular way for cultural communication between the East and the West.
From the very beginning, the designers were trying to improve the natural environment and explore the cultural characteristics of the exhibition area with the goal to create a unique and attractive community. Hence the designers have presented 7 “GIN”s —— far and “near”, visit “route”, “forbidden” wall, peace and “quietness”, water “mirror”, flower “slope” and play “hard”.
How to highlight the characteristics of the long and narrow site? How to add to the sense of mystery? How to express YOUWELL’s excellence with landscape design?
▼场地概况分析 Site overview
Architecture is a dynamic form with high potentials. The challenge lies in how to integrate landscape with architecture and landscape. The design allows them to dialogue with each other and keeps in harmony with the surroundings.
How to change the disadvantages into advantages in the 7 “GIN” Garden?
▼平面图 Master Plan
1 “GIN” —— Far and Near
Why is the route leading to the sales center 150m long but not 50m?
All the landscape elements are arranged along the only route which leads visitors to enjoy the cascade and pool, lined trees, sea of flowers, open lawn, terrace and small theatre, array of trees, children’s playground, etc. The route connects all the landscape nodes to form a “pearl necklace”. It is just like what is described in a poem, “time and time again, I searched for you in the crowd. Suddenly, I spun round and saw the very you standing amidst thin lights.”
The spaces are separated by several 5m high concrete walls which are skillfully constructed to present unique effect —— sometimes, it looks like the Great Wall, magnificent and majestic. Climbing up on the grass slope and enjoying a panoramic view of the garden, you will feel extremely relaxed and comfortable.
4“GIN” ——Peace and “Quietness”
The exhibition area is designed to be a peaceful and tranquil garden for the visitors. Driving into this development from the busy city and walking into the exhibition area along the pool, the visitors will calm down gradually and find their inner peace eventually. Of cause, in the children’s playground, there’s another image——children run and play happily everywhere, showing a sharp contrast with the front part. This is home and this is life.
Mirror water at the entrance is quiet and clear to welcome the visitors. Water flows down the concrete walls, forming a loud and magnificent cascade.
The flower slope begins from the lane along which there are many Mongolian oaks, leading visitors to a fairytale world. Formed against the concrete walls, the slope is a three-level terrace made of weathering steel. With Muhlennbergia capillaris, gold-leaf Miscanthus, photinia serrulata, Chamomile, Ligustrum sinense ‘Variegatum’, Teucrium Fruticans, etc., it creates a sea of flowers.
At last, outside the sales center is a large children’s playground where varied equipment and facilities allow children to exercise, climb, jump, race and jump the pit.
