form the designer : The project is located at Ningbo, the city in the corner of Fenghua River. The section where is the project located has the theme park, the largest music fountain square in Asia, national gallery of arts, theme hotel, and other commercial projects. The project we did include sales center and three mock-up rooms.
As the landscape wasn’t well protected during construction, we persuaded owner to remodel the south part of the site. Aiming to build a landscape park open to public. The theme park is considered as extended space of city as well as sales center. The building and street could be well connected by the landscape park. Moreover, the landscape park reflects the core sprite of this area, which is building a happy ocean experience.
Firstly, we divided this area into three parts: public landscape on south; three mock-up rooms on north; sales center in the middle which is also considered as the “core”.
House selling is not only about marketing database, but also providing a lifestyle to customer. Healthy environment and quality services are factors that motivate people to own properties as pollution becomes one of the greatest social issues today. Our concept is to present the surrounding environment into sales center. The solutions are:
1. Build landscape to enclose sales center.
2. Build pool around the sales center. “Aqua” is a significant element of Ningbo Happy Coast as well as the project. Both landscape and interior are reflected by water. Also, architecture and environment are well fused by water.
3. Add slabs and columns to build interior space. Transparent glasses with the height of 4.5m enable people to view landscape inside. We also build terrace to meet the requirement of outdoor recreation.
4. Attach metal surface to glasses. Light and shadow is changing constantly by the movement of ray of light.
5. Plug two parts into the building. Poncho comes from sales center and it extends to louver wall outside which providing a respectable entrance to the building. The terrace in the air comes from second floor and it extends to outside as well. The three-dimensional structure provides a leisure space for VIP and Signing Room.
