ZSD:In the dense south of the Yangtze River, half of the landscape, half of the city, Hangzhou has always had an existence that cannot be ignored. Behind its unique regional symbols and strong cultural characteristics, there are parts that metabolize inwards, and parts that grow freely outwards. Change in the past, and seek new things in the present. The avant-garde concept combines the evolutionary consciousness of modernity to open experimental design practice with active exploration.


▽置于绿意中的办公区 The office area in the greenery



Cloud Land, one step away from Xixi Wetland, aims to explore the new trend of urban future office. This time, Zhuo Shi is also responsible for the landscape design and the overall interior decoration, trying to introduce nature into the indoor environment and create a “landscape penetration” that is indistinguishable from inside and outside.


▽内外景致相互渗透 The interior and exterior scenery penetrate each other

As a model of commercial office products, Cloud Land practiced the three criteria for evaluating gardens in Tong Yu’s “Jiangnan Garden Chronicle”, namely, “appropriate density, complete twists and turns, and scenery in front of you”. Although the visible proportions, techniques, materials, and craftsmanship are all modern, the wild and vigor, hidden in nature, and hazy artistic conception are completely the spiritual connotation of oriental aesthetics.


▽现代利落的商业办公界面 Modern and simple commercial office space



Street Frontage



The actual landscape area of the demonstration area opened in the early stage is a T-shaped terrain, which is located in the northwest corner of Building No. 2. The boundary line of the first floor of the building is about 18m away from the municipal sidewalk, and the height difference between indoor and outdoor of the site is 1.12m. How to combine the current situation of the site and use the cramped depth to coordinate the visual processing of the street-facing interface is the primary problem to be solved by Cloud Land.


▽通过设计营造进深 Create a rich depth space through design.



Relying on the location close to Xixi Wetland Park and the consideration of the locality of the project, Zhuoshi Design proposed the concept of “Natural Living Room•Urban Valley”, integrating adaptive ecological, humanistic, social, artistic and other elements to make the urban texture and Establish connections with natural habitats, and create a comprehensive open sharing place that integrates ecological office, art life, and commerce.




In Mies van der Rohe’s architectural theory, space is fluid, and by natural inference, vision, feeling, and situation are also fluid. This indescribable and inexhaustible sense of “flow” coincides with the vivid artistic conception of the East. Therefore, the existing site was placed with two low walls, and the dislocation layout was connected by a tortuous path, so that the short distance of 18m appeared to have a circuitous rhythm, and the scenery was different when walking, constructing a fluid and musical landscape space.




Wild Nature



On the side of the municipal sidewalk, two Nata oak trees form an array to block the noisy sound and chaotic sight in the block. Combined with the guidance of the wall, a certain orderly sequence is formed, emphasizing the location of the main entrance, and at the same time welcoming visitors up the stairs. . The Nata oak tree is a deciduous tree, which is in line with the four seasons of Hangzhou. The tower-shaped canopies stretch each other, forming a clustered top surface, giving shade to the ceremony passage, and mottled tree shadow to the ground and walls.




Different from the artificial geometric pruning of urban gardens, Cloud Land presents another wild and natural ecology. Ground cover plants, swaying in the wind, scattered high and low, grow freely. Any site has a special “individual memory” for plants. From resistance, acceptance, and then familiarity, a “way of getting along” that adapts to each other is developed. This is also the process of plant evolution and evolution.





“Searching for Poems and Quotations” has always been popular among scholars and scholars. In the casual details of the project, Zhuo Shi quoted Kang Youwei’s poems chanting the magnificent scenery of Xixi Wetland, which were inscribed on the steps. There is a certain physical distance between the first sentence and the last sentence. Visitors are also curious about the journey of “searching for poetry” during their journey, giving Cloud Land a romantic and poetic atmosphere with the cultural attributes of the venue.

“The reed flowers are white in the Manchuria, and the flowers fly to swallow the clouds and dreams. … Don’t talk about the past and travel to the sky, and take a slanted shot of the evening waves and return to the paddle.”

之间 / 灰空间,疏朗得当
Between/Grey Space, Sparse And Clear



When it comes to the interior scene, the left and right landscape mirrors and the water surface are connected to each other, forming the image of a 5m wide “bridge”, from the outdoors to the indoors. The waterscape becomes the softened interface between the landscape and the building, and the reflection in the water can better integrate the building and the landscape, and dissolve the hard boundaries of different interfaces. In the second landscape wall, the image of “the boat that is not tied” is transformed into a sculptural water outlet made of stone. The trickling water injects agile vitality into the quiet natural landscape.




In an architectural context, “between” is used to describe a middle ground, usually composed of two contrasting spatial elements, such as interior and exterior, public and private, or material and immaterial themselves. This kind of “grey space” is reflected in the proposal for the inward retreat of the curtain wall of Building 2 in the early stage of the plan. The “depressed” space can reduce the emotional alienation caused by the clear separation of inside and outside, and at the same time make the architecture, landscape and interior produce a trinity of effective linkage.




Between Building 1 and Building 2, as a public outdoor space, the landscape tries to explore more possibilities. Along the ground paving, a rest area where you can sit down is undulating, just like a sitting area growing out of the ground. The platform and plants are combined, and the “sparse and appropriate” three-dimensional space makes the site more integrated and organic, encourages visitors to actively participate actively, and realizes the interesting interaction between the landscape and people.




拾忆庭 / 无用空间,室内景观化
Reminiscence Court / Useless Space, Interior landscaping


The indoor atrium is thematically designed, and the concept of “indoor landscape” is proposed. It is suggested that the outdoor landscape should be extended to the interior to form a unity of indoor and outdoor elements. As a result, a kind of “useless space” that is completely different from the conventional is created. The tables and chairs for negotiation function are discarded and replaced by a coherent inner courtyard landscaping, which is named “Reminiscence Court”.





Shuttle through the stone forest, or stand still, or sit for a while, so that you can stay for a while, pick up fragments of memories here, and feel the beautiful moments in life. At the same time, “Reminiscence Court” is composed of 5 groups of trees with high and low branches and 6 unique stones. The two add up to “Shi Yi”, which also coincidentally echoes the theme. The “simple” lying stones and standing stones are the theme leads of the “natural living room”, from the selection of materials to the processing of different texture surfaces, as well as the final installation and angle placement on site, all of which reflect the pursuit of “extreme spirit”.




The so-called “useless space” is not “useless”, but an attempt to “vacant” in stages, trying to rebuild an inclusive mechanism for communication, sharing and interaction. The highly reflective “water” on the ground of “Reminiscence Court” made of stone flows into the interior from the outside, and the “invisible water” is inspired by the Liuliguangyuan in Kyoto. The high-gloss lacquer surface draws the outdoors naturally into the interior, which truly reflects the changes of the four seasons outdoors, and forms an ingenious visual connection between the interior and the exterior.



诗酒花茶 / 眼前有景,自然生活
Poetry And Flower Tea / There Is A Scene In Front Of You, Natural Life


Oriental gardens pay attention to “smartness and borrowing”. Looking out of the window, the entrance landscape is clearly visible. The splendid German irises are blooming strongly, and the flowing water is gurgling. You can also enjoy the moving gesture of the flowing water jumping into the scenic pond. The outdoor 1.5m high low wall properly blocks the projected line of sight and ensures the privacy of the interior. The soft furnishings meet the spatial functions of different themes, such as poetry, wine, flower tea, etc., but when you are here, the “view in front of you” naturally creates a “gully” in your heart, which enables guests to experience the leisurely natural life immersively.




The design of Cloud Land aims at the complete presentation of the integration of indoor and outdoor, with twists and turns, changing the scenery with each step, showing a dynamic scene, while the “Reminiscence Court” is hidden in the indoor atrium in a static way. Between movement and stillness, walking and standing, seeing and being seen, blurred boundaries and clear outlines form interrelated objects that transform each other, forming a “permeable landscape” with a unique situational visual structure.




In the design concept of Cloud Land, the “permeable landscape” is not only a simple flow of inner and outer space, sight lines, and charm, but also includes the possibility of people, plants, buildings, and cities participating in nature. The isolated relationship is transformed into site respect, organic coordination, and artificial concessions, so as to achieve a sustainable ecological model of sharing, symbiosis and coexistence and a practical way of ideal construction.
