The project is located in the Houhu Art Park in Changsha City, Hunan Province. Before the renovation, it was a three-story residential house. The main structure was brick-concrete structure. The empty bucket masonry method of lime mortar was used. There was no ring beam structure column, and the structural stability was quite weak. But the park management unit prohibits the demolition and reconstruction, and can only carry out reconstruction on the basis of the original houses. Therefore, the owner hopes to transform the building into a design office with rich facade features.

" matryoshka " of New and Old Structures
The first difficulty the owner faced was how to add a two-story office volume to this relatively weak brick-concrete structure. In order not to affect the original structure, we added a three- and four-story load-bearing structure across the original one and two-story brick-concrete structure to form a structural reinforcement scheme similar to a "matryoshka". This new structure nests the old one. The load-bearing method of the structure ensures the safety and stability of the new and old structures, and also provides the greatest design freedom for reshaping the facade of the building.

A big yellow staircase
Another prominent problem facing the owners is that as a commercial building surrounded by dense houses, only one corner of the building can be glimpsed from the nearby square, and the rest of the facade is blocked, making it difficult for customers to discover and identify. In order to break through this siege, we moved the main staircase of the building from the inside to the corner of the outside of the building, opening to the square, and establishing a simple and clear visual focus through the striking yellow.
In the functional planning of the owner, the first floor of the building is home decoration display and coffee bar, the second floor is the craft model display and negotiation room, the third floor is the design office, the fourth floor is the meeting room and partner office, and the fourth floor is a free With the gradual progress of customer communication, we have planned the staircase and the main experience nodes of each floor in a streamlined series. A large yellow staircase runs between the old and new facades of the building, passing inside and out. A unique spatial experience is formed, and interactions between people, seeing and being seen from different angles are also created.

Surrounded by greenery, natural symbiosis
While the building is surrounded by dense houses, it is also surrounded by several big trees. The close relationship between trees and the building has become an important consideration from the very beginning of the design. We hope that at different heights, trees can have a positive connection with the interior and exterior spaces of the building: employees can discuss and enjoy coffee in the space under the tree; on the leisure platform on the second floor, they can touch the surface of the tree trunk and feel the texture of the bark ; The office area on the third floor is located close to the tree. During lunch and tea break, you can observe the small trembling of the leaves in the breeze through the long windows, so that you can feel the relaxation of the greenery and the breeze. Relieve the fatigue of design work. Every morning, the gentle sunlight will pass through the leaves and throw the mottled shade into the room. The posture of the tree is swayed by the breeze, forming a silent performance of light and shadow on the facade of the building.

In the Internet celebrity cities in the Internet celebrity era, every commercial building is expected to become an Internet celebrity, and at the same time, it is often engulfed by the requirements of irrational visual effects. How to establish the uniqueness of the exterior visual without losing the rational core of architectural analysis and problem solving; how to enable the building to be more than just a visual spectacle on social media, and to return more to the real space experience at the same time. Creating a delicate and comfortable space environment for visiting customers and employees is a simple discussion and thinking that we hope to make in this case.
