City and art are no longer a relationship of black or white when development of the city brings more demands to life.

ZSD is responsible for the overall project and the landscape design of the Pavilion of Life Art.
The design is expected to inject a new sense of life into the old blocks nearby. A review of the quality of life will awaken the spirit of the sleeping place in this area and open up a new state of mind for the hurried modern urban life.
片区尘世的面貌 The earthly look of the area
The project is located at the intersection of Zhoushan East Road and Dongjiao Road, Gongshu District, Hangzhou, Zhejiang province. This spot has a profound historical context. Gongshu has been the place of business and trade contacts and prosperous land for people's livelihood since ancient times. It was the "Beiguan night market" and "silver lake villa in ten miles" in the former dynasties.
The historic blocks of Qiaoxi and Gongchen Bridge, where "Hangzhou Dajia" is located now are shouldering the development mission of Hangzhou facing the future city.
The surrounding D32 Fashion Block, Grand Canal Place, Canal Culture Light and other commercial bodies, as well as the appearance of future industrial planning such as Qiaodong Intelligent city one by one, making this place become the location center radiating this region.
The street the current project belonged to is the famous "snack food street" in Hangzhou, where the flow of students is quite large, but the road can only one bus to pass through, and both sides are farmers' houses. The area was once considered a urban village which is worthy of the name, where people lowered their heads to see telegraph poles and look up at intersecting electric wires.

Before starting to design the plan, compared with the conventional formal design, we hope that this design is to create an integral state that is suitable for the current urban history, living environment, natural art consciousness and mutual understanding.
Architecture here should not be a shackle to urban development, but should be based on and moistening the blocks nearby to bring endless energy like a deep spring.
Hangzhou is a city of both history and modernity. The city is like a tug-of-war of an appearing and vanishing new star, and lonely lamp of the old area. The lifestyle which re-examines art and the state of mind will open up the light and shadow of future of urban life.
开启宁静的当下Open the tranquil present
A most peaceful building in the messy and noisy environment often leaves a deep impression on people and sigh with emotion. As looking for the most simple and pure state of mind belonged to us in the miscellaneous life, which is also a "new" realm in a deeper sense.
The minimalist design approach can interpret our attitude towards life in the current city in the most direct visual way.
Having no enclosed wall outside, the entire interface is open and becomes part of the public interface of the city. From the beginning, the landscape design has established the role of connecting the architecture with the city and the street, aiming to create a stage that breaks the daily life and shows the future quality and artistic style of the project and the region.
The shape of the architecture is square and dignified, presenting a visual sense of infinite horizontal extension. The overturning eaves made in accordance with the golden ratio form the geometric entrance space of the frustum. The landscape forms the diffusion parallax of art drawing with the wide platform and stairs to increase the visual space of the original main door and also make the whole building simple but not too flat.
The landscape design and architectural design use creamy white stone in unification to give the simple but elegant sense of humanity in the preciseness of geometry.
The landscape deliberately creates a difference in elevation between the interior and exterior, and uses the extended suspended steps to make the approach of visitors are not limited to one route, which solves the problem that the welcome road does not have too much vertical area to buffer the introduction.
The vertical abstract sculpture standing erect in the mirror pool on the right side is designed to attract attention beyond the scale of human body and form a moment of gazing at each other with streets and pedestrians.
The design translates the art of life into the humanistic expression of space, and the architecture full of feelings builds up the scenery of the city. Experience, thinking and so on needless to say, but it will slowly bring to people the city's energy and emotional appeal through time. Taking this as the source point, the site consciousness of the region will live out the vitality with more thickness.
品质的真实触摸The true touch of quality
If the concept of luxurious house is only defined by the word luxury, then it can merely be regarded as a symbol of simple wealth accumulation, while the word taste is always considered to a word of more sublime pattern of wealth.
The deep thought of taste, the essence derived from thinking, is the interpretation of the details of life.
True materials can express a sense of richness which needs to be experienced by multiple senses, while details of precision work make this kind of perception more direct and pure.
Material used by the landscape is very refined, when the scene wall keeps using the construction stone material, and the ground chooses more durable stone material with the same color scheme to be laid with the specification of 1200x600 in unification. Minimalism means details and craftsmanship having more requirements and all landscape materials correspond to the building's modulus when walls, floors and water features are all the same, which makes the overall simplicity full of mathematical and detailed fun.
The occurrence of beauty depends on the senses and we hope that people who pass by can get close to the touch of the wall and experience by sitting on the stone bench, so as to have a real touch and connection to art, and the beauty of art is no longer an empty concept.
自然之美的流动The flow of natural beauty
The space integrated with nature must be gentle as people rely on nature to survive well and we constantly contact, exchange and interact with nature, so the landscape design this time must be open and flowing when the design not only integrates with the external architectural space, but also interacts with the interior space.
Located on the ground floor of "Hangzhou Dajia", the landscape of the underground courtyard runs from north to south, mapping the sky, water, white sand, dark stone and tree in the nature to the sky, water, earth, mountain and wood in the nature, which shows the miniature of the whole nature.
Considering the relationship between places on the ground floor and the flow of people, the sunken landscape is designed as a horizontal rectangular space, which is set between the swimming pool area and the negotiation area, which plays a role of space separation for the interior.
The roofless courtyard is connected to the sky and the design sets the four walls as glass curtain walls, a leave indicates the autumn and the frost indicates the winter when the daylight enters into the room. The indoor is also able to experience the four seasons cycle of natural replacement.
The interior is also able to experience the four seasons cycle of natural replacement.
In a quiet landscape, the flowing of waterfall designed has many times of technical independent schemes and simulation experiments in the early stage to choose the best water level, water amount, water flow speed, wind speed, in order to achieve the soft water falling, like the natural musician accompany for the indoor negotiations space, and also gathers vigor for sales function in the three dimensional space.
If the process of commercialization is the inevitable path of urban development, then it is the responsibility to seek the balance between commerce and non-commerce. For ZSD, design should not only be measured by exchange value, but also have a broader and longer reference system integrating with the world.
In the current real estate industry, the demonstration area is usually demolished or transformed after the sales ends. After the completion of the recent demonstration function, "Hangzhou Dajia Pavilion of Life Art" is also expected to be restored into a street shop that can be separated for sale. When we designed it, we had the expectation that someone would recognize the design interest or just match the need to purchase it in a package and retain the temporary place.
It is said that there are often college girls nearby take pictures in front of the life pavilion, although unexpected, it is an interesting result.
