Wuhan Urban Construction GuangCai International City, located in the Binjiang International Business District of Hankou, the “Lujiazui” (the glitzy financial district in Shanghai, China) of Wuhan, is designed to be a high-class, premium and luxurious living space and an ideal place to gather “High-Net-Worth Individuals”. The Sales Center needs to be transformed into commercial space later, so the design focuses on creating a relaxing atmosphere like in an art gallery with the marketing elements diminished as much as possible. It is designed with the concept of “Yuan”, which, in Chinese, means the origin of everything. The giant grids extend layer by layer into the indoor space, becoming an integral part of all the buildings. The landscape is also delicately designed to blur the boundaries between internal and external space. In this way, with the building, the space and the nature combined in a perfect manner, a brand-new site, that much values people and experience, comes into being.
As for layout, we make full use of the super-high empty area of the Sales Center by using super-large glass curtain wall, which offer a panoramic view of the natural scenery outside. When the light shines into the space, the countless changes of light and shades guide the visitors into a magnificent world but with subtle sentiments. The structure of giant grids seems complex, but is simply shown thorough the flowing outlines, various layers, and the powerful visual effects that come along. There are also sculptures in different forms, all representing “Yuan” - the origin. As art and technology are integrated in a flexible and dynamic way, the space is always full of vitality.
