This case is located in the north of the central urban area of Yangzhou, on the axis of the Slender West Lake tourism landscape. The whole Yangzhou is like a big garden. The city is in the garden, and the garden is in the city. In this small city, there are scenes everywhere. Yangzhou is a charming city with a slower pace of life.
The project is surrounded by a 30-square-kilometer super cultural tourism market for OCT. It includes planning formats such as Dream City, Weiyang Living Room, Health Valley, Happy Water World, Car Manor, Beautiful Countryside and High-end Living Community. and other product types. Party A of Yangzhou Vanke proposed a topic to our design team: how to realize the happy lifestyle of the large cultural tourism in the demonstration area in a limited area, and to form an open commercial life block with the completed south side community. image?
Demonstration area problem solving strategies:
1. How to highlight the market image of the project? The project demonstration area adopts an enclosed and semi-open strategy display, borrowing the municipal roads of the built land, packaging the built commercial street, creating a real colife commercial and living facilities, and creating a super-long open urban interface to the outside world. The cultural and tourism section has been completed, and it can be seen directly from the urban area to the sales office driving direction, which is more beneficial to the overall display.
2. How can the demonstration area display so many product experiences in a 6,000-square-meter venue? The demonstration area is displayed in different scenes. The design combines urban space, commercial blocks (colife), high-rises (Huandi), bungalows (Huanting), and villas and courtyards (Huanyuan) products in series according to the display flow. Slender West Lake The road and OCT Cultural Tourism, residential facades, and municipal roads are the interface of the project's urban display area. The road corner design creates an urban-scale interactive corner square, which stimulates the vitality of the area. The L-shaped corridor space corresponds to the space scene of Huanyuan (a foreign-style house product), the Yunduo children’s activity site corresponds to the future functional activity scene of Huandi (a high-rise product), and the model house’s patio and water courtyard corresponds to the Huanting (a villa). The space scene of Lifang Heyuan), the entire display streamline is connected with the future life scene.
Draw inspiration from the local nature of Yangzhou，Valleys, streams, running water, and forests are integrated into the scene intentionally，Landscape design advances gradually in spatial organization，Encounter, filming, entering, interesting forest, listening to the spring, finally wandering Lin Ying Zhuoshui，Complete scenes of Moriju life scenes and enjoy the new life in the future.
VIYANG MUSIC AND DANCE
Met for the first time，Splash Interactive Ring Sculpture，The historical miniature of the city, which symbolizes the dance of water, stands on the corner of the street against the background of light and shadow，Shining，Undulating spring。Bringing a sound of childlike joy with music.
The dreamlike art installations bring imagination to the future life of Yangzhou North Gate Area. One side of the sculpture adopts an open layout space form, providing a corner square for urban communication, rest and interaction. Residents can experience more novel activities, and it has also become an iconic urban art installation on Slender West Lake Road.
After parking，Walk slowly along the corridor，Corner encounter，Under the eaves of the corridor, the water becomes a forest，Projecting the bustling street scene，Dazzling lights，Busy traffic.After parking,
The model house is separated from the parking lot by a wall. We need to solve two problems:
1. The balcony of the model house is close to the fence, and the problem of lighting needs to be solved. From the interior, the line of sight cannot see the parking lot.
2. According to the conventional display ideas, the model house cannot be seen directly when entering the parking lot. The model house itself is made of real stone paint and the facade display effect is not good. The elevation of the model house is 1.2 meters higher than that of the parking lot. The retaining wall is covered with 2.4 meters of U-shaped glass, and the height of 3.6 meters just forms a shelter for the model house.
On the one hand, it blocks the noise of the parking lot, and on the other hand, it solves the lighting problem in the model room. In the design process, we have carried out many rounds of deliberation on the selection of materials, and finally chose U-shaped glass with light transmission characteristics, which not only solved the noise of the parking lot and the unfavorable sight of the model room, but also solved the lighting of the indoor balcony of the model room. question. The texture of the frosted surface of the U-shaped glass is very similar to the rice paper in the south of the Yangtze River. Combined with the hazy light and shadow, it is poetic, which is especially suitable for the tonality of the project.
Between the parking lot and the pedestrian entrance, the designer cleverly uses an L-shaped corridor to divide the front and rear spaces. The front court is a semi-open transitional space, which is the main flow line from the parking lot to the sales office. The setting of the corridor is on the one hand to shield the visitors from the wind and rain, and on the other hand, it is the "borrowing scene" of the line of sight. This borrowed scene is mainly to borrow the living atmosphere of commercial facilities. The L-shaped corridor is an open sight of the commercial block to the outside, and the corridor and the commercial street look at each other, which can better highlight the image of the market and the interface of the city. The interior of the corridor is equipped with functions of the enclosed large area, showing the future life scene of the large area.
Turn around the corridor，Clever entry into the forest portal，in the sun，A splendid forest shadows against the gate tower，Quietly waiting for guests to come.
The design hopes that the demonstration area can reflect a certain sense of urbanism and fireworks. Opposite the demonstration area is the newly built first-phase residential and commercial, and the commercial has not yet been operated. Vanke has packaged the commercial street as a whole to create a colife block. During the opening period of the demonstration area, it can show visitors the convenient living facilities in the future; the designers of the front yard of the demonstration area use the parking lot fence, corridor and super-long city display interface to show the cultural tourism. The momentum of the market. The façade material echoes the color and texture of the façade of the existing residential and commercial streets. The combination of light-colored imitation stone and dark black titanium metal lines is simple yet luxurious. The walls and the ever-changing tree shadows create a picture Light and shadow art.
TRANQUIL WATER SHADOW
Enjoy the sun slantingly，The mottled shadows of the forest and the water are in harmony with each other，Get a peaceful place in the forest.
The residential area should be a space full of life and fireworks that is closely related to the occupants’ future life, rather than a cookie-cutter, cold display prop and show. The design must eventually return to the origin of life.
Our design hopes to stand in the perspective of the city and use the culture of Yangzhou as the context to awaken the vitality of the new area of the city. Yangzhou Vanke Overseas Chinese Town Qiaochengli acts as an important medium linking Slender West Lake Road and the OCT cultural and tourism sector, turning the block into a life roaming into the park. Path, establish accessibility with urban streets and communities, create a landscape with temperature and green ecology, and create a happy lifestyle in a cultural and tourism city. Creating an "open, ecological, and diverse" blending community will bring new opportunities for the future development of Yangzhou North Gateway.
