叠术建筑：如果不复刻一线城市楼盘形态与欧式外立面风格，广阔的中国腹地能否找到自己对城市生活的新定义？叠术建筑用 80后住宅项目Y-Loft City回答了这个问题。
在山西长治市的老工业区，Y-Loft City再次整合了公共空间与住宅空间，去除围墙与大门，让三座塔楼公寓成为视线汇聚的白色地标。高度落差与旋转处理打破了单调的水平、垂直重复。明亮的白色轻质立面明快连续地跨过间隔空间，以纹理与周边社区形成强烈又和谐的对比。雕塑手法令阳台跳出乏味的整齐排列，仅用暗色水平阴影就完成了整体质感的表达。这种低成本但个性鲜明的现代设计风格，替代了整齐划一、随处可见的“标准欧陆风格社区”，协助业主用合理预算造出更有吸引力的生活场所，成为长治新CBD区域的关键节点。Y-Loft City为Y世代青年客户展现了本地现代社区生活的新可能，以高出周边60%的定价成功发售。
Superimpose Architecture: Can the vast hinterland of China find its own new definition of urban life if it no longer has the form of first-tier cities and the style of European facades? Y-Loft City, a post-80s residential project, answers this question.
In the old industrial area of Changzhi City, Shanxi Province, Y-Loft City reintegrates public and residential Spaces, removing walls and gates, making the three tower apartments become white landmarks with converging views. The height drop and rotation treatment break the monotonous horizontal and vertical repetition. The light, bright white facades flow brightly and continuously across the space between, creating a strong and harmonious contrast between the textures and the surrounding community. Sculpture technique makes the balcony jump out of the tedious orderly arrangement, only with dark horizontal shadow to complete the expression of the overall texture.
This low-cost but distinctive modern design style replaces the uniform and ubiquitous “standard European style community” and helps the owners to create more attractive living places with a reasonable budget, becoming a key node in the new CBD area of Changzhi. Y-Loft City presents the new possibilities of local modern community life to young Gen Y customers. It was successfully launched at a price 60% higher than that of the surrounding area.
Y-Loft City：旧城，新生活｜Y-Loft City: Old City, New Life
How would you imagine a modern community life beyond Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen? Instead of churning out copies of ubiquitous “European” apartment blocks, can a new definition of architecture emerge outside first-tier cities?
在山西省长治市，这个曾有过繁荣重工业历史的小城，叠术建筑用 80后住宅项目Y-Loft City做了次大胆尝试。
In Changzhi City, Shanxi Province, a small City with a history of prosperous heavy industry, Zhaishu Architecture has made a bold attempt with Y-Loft City, a post-80s residential project.
▼用 80后住宅项目进行大胆尝试 With the post-80 residential projects for a bold attempt
The fifty thousand square meters mixed-use development is located in a new CBD district of Changzhi, In the past, people here shared a common sense of modernization and industrial culture.a fourth tier industrial city in Shanxi Province which is facing rapid urbanisation and has around three million inhabitants.
▼Y-Loft City，打造长治市新CBD的城市新地标 Y-Loft City, a new landmark of Changzhi City’s new CBD
Superimpose convinced client and government to deviate from the standard approach in order to stand out and differ from classicistic European-style drab residential developments that are dominating the new-built residential skyline in China’s hinterland. Most importantly the design challenge was to target and appeal to a young generation.
▼打造既根植本土文化又汇聚社区的新展现项目 Create a new display project that is rooted in local culture and brings together the community
Y-Loft City所在的空间，如果与数十年前轴承厂时代的空间时空重叠，将会呈现出一种意外的共同特征：多种城市和社区功能，在同一个有机体内组合。轴承厂所属的厂房、住宅区、医院、学校曾经连为一体。Y-Loft City区域也与基于旧厂区建造的博览中心、文创园建筑等公共空间遥遥呼应。
Superimpose responses to this challenge are skillfully combined at the macro and micro spatial levels.
Superimpose responsed to this challenge in both macro and micro scale with simple tools in order to improve usability, liveability, general appearance, and connectivity with the other sites within the masterplan:The workshop, residential area, hospital and school that the bearing factory belongs to were once connected as one.The plan layout intentionally opens up to the surrounding sites with schools, a hotel, cultural hubs and hospital;
在更小的尺度上，Y-Loft City再次重新组合了公共空间与住宅空间。与周边那些早期建成的住宅社区相比，最直接的差别是“围墙+大门”的消失。开放的公共空间包含斜向交错的通道与地面、下沉面双重活动区域。5万平方米的建筑面积通透呈现，让Y-Loft City不仅是周边区域处处视线可及的白色地标，也成为人们随时可到达的行动中心点。
On a smaller scale, Y-Loft City recombines public and residential Spaces once again. The most immediate difference is the disappearance of the “wall + gate” compared to the earlier built housing communities around it. The open public space consists of oblique staggered passageways and dual activity areas on the ground and sunken surface. With a construction area of 50,000 square meters, Y-Loft City is not only a white landmark that can be seen everywhere in the surrounding area, but also a central point of action that people can reach at any time.
Superimpose Refuse to use neat and uniform copying. The three apartment buildings have different heights and orientations, but they echo each other and become the three construction fulcrum of the whole space. The two atmospheres of community and independent living coexist in the region formed by the fulcrum. This spatial structure guides the way people view the building from inside and outside
▼三座高低朝向各异又彼此呼应的公寓成为视线汇聚的白色地标 Three apartments with different orientations and corresponding to each other become white landmarks with convergent views
The residential towers have been rotated, shaped and positioned to increase uninterrupted views out from each single living space while simultaneously orientating each apartment to maximized sunlight exposure; Keeping the construction budget low was key to achieving an inexpensive and affordable development for the Y-generation.
▼布局、高差打破单调水平，形成鲜明而不失和谐的对比效果 Difference of layout, height breaks drab level, form bright and do not break harmonious contrast effect
Light and bright materials have been used to contrast with the dull surrounding developments; A loft-concept has been applied in order to achieve more living space per square meter and a variety of unique balconies have been added to each residential unit in order to provide identity to the tower and valuable outdoor space to each inhabitant and unlike other nearby developments.
▼凹凸结构设计强调阳台所通往的个体居住想象 The concave and convex structure emphasizes the individual living imagination that the balcony leads to
Unlike the majority of developments with balconies, this developer has agreed with providing strict rules on how inhabitants should remain to use their balconies as outdoor space.Instead Superimpose opted for a simple yet refined material palette of white facades with contrasting dark aluminium window frames and panels, together with slightly reflective glass. The balconies have been cladded with white perforated aluminium.
▼开放阳台能最大限度扩展光照的同时塑造均质生活体验 Open balconies maximize light while creating a homogeneous living experience
业主期望用合理的预算造出真正的现代设计风格。叠术在Y-Loft City项目中使用简单而独特的强对比方法，替代掉泛滥的繁复装饰结构，降低了外立面所占用的造价成本。对于Y世代青年用户而言，这是更具有吸引力的生活场所，又不会由于堆砌装饰而让价格高不可攀。因此，Y-Loft City以高出周边社区60%的定价成功发售。
Superimpose designed three white sculptural residential loft apartment towers for the so-called Y-generation, focused on quality of life and breaking with the conventional residential development typology. Within months, all apartments were sold for 160% of the surrounding residential market value. The towers are situated on top of a non-gated and community orientated retail village and integrated as part of the Changzhi CBD masterplan, also designed by Superimpose.
▼简单独特立面设计更具吸引力的现代风格住所 Simple and unique facade design for a more attractive modern style residence
Y-Loft city is not only meant as an answer to this particular design challenge, but also aims to question how to develop residential areas in rapidly growing third and fourth tier cities in China. Can new residential projects be more attractive and take inspiration from the quality of life and community, rather than only focussing on profit making models. What else can architects do for the evolution of the residential community? How should designers and clients collaborate and cherish existing cultural resources to create a new social life, new integrated communities and a new normal in the Chinese hinterland. This is a challenge Superimpose will continue to explore in the future.
