The Vanke Emerald Park
Located close to Chongqing Central Park. Architectural design reinterprets traditional space essence in modern language. Generally, it follows the traditional space layout featuring axial symmetry, front hall and backyard, and multiple courtyards. Walls, columns, and eaves are used to create courtyards in different sizes and levels of openness.
The front hall is a two-story exhibition space that comes with three exhibition halls connecting each other and a cozy reception room. The main building faces public space of the city: large expanded metal mesh and glass are used to give an air of artistic mystery.
There is a veranda with overhanging eaves in the backyard to make a spiritual home with “the four glasses of water returning to the hall”. Semi-outdoor corridor offers possibilities of transportation, socializing and relaxation. In the center of the earth stands a huge bonsai of three pine trees. Large overhanging eaves depict a tranquil picture of pine trees and rocks for those meditating indoors.
The veranda becomes a boundless and natural extension from indoors to outdoors, from building to the landscape through the extended glass and large-sized grey space . The designer divides large overhanging eaves into the flat roof and pitched roof so as to deliver comfortable space experience. Internally, the suspended ceiling of flat roof is butted together with indoor space to weaken the bonds between indoor and outdoor spaces; externally, the suspended ceiling eave of a pitched roof is made slightly low to cover the landscape from indoors.
Lines make the building look tal and metal texture and transparent glass weave a delicate appearance. The flexibility of modern building is presented in a soft-hard and virtual-real manner.
Expanded metal lines of the outer contour are all custom products: columns, eaves, waistlines, bottom edges and door pockets. Custom-made expanded metal sections bring out a forceful yet simple design. Detailed design in joints shows designers’ close attention paid to user experience .
The main building is surrounded by waters on three sides. Lines in the inverted triangle are designed where the external wall bottom and water surface meet to support the main building and create an “overhanging” visual effect. Columns of outer frame are erected into water; the part above water is externally decorated with an aluminum expanded metal sheet while that beneath the water with stainless expanded metal sheet. As ripples vary, the stainless steel sheet reflects light onto the building.
