Showroom
Xi’an Vanke Yan Ming Lake

Showroom for Arch-Age-Design (AAD)

The architectural form replicates the direction of the mountain and lake, and is rotated and dislocated on the second floor of the building to form an 18-meter-long viewing platform, which outlines a highly sculptural form with natural and flexible curves. The arc-shaped exterior wall is like a blank canvas, and with the technique of white space, nature becomes the creator of architectural picture scrolls. With the simple and elegant tones, the charm of light and shadow are intertwined, which together outline a simple and pure world.

Unique Properties

The external appearance of the architecture replicates the trend of the mountain and the lake. On 2F, an 18 meter long viewing platform is formed through a spiral structure. Natural and flexible curves outline a sculptural form. Curved outer wall looks just like a series of blank canvases and the art of leaving blank makes nature act as the creator of architectural design. Plain palette, together with light and shadows creates a simple and pure world.

Production Technology

The exterior facade features a combination of fiber cement boards with weather-resistant steel plates. Precisely customized arc and seamless surface have broken the restraint of minimal sculpture form. The cement-fiber board with a porous structure can save energy and materials with weather resistance can extend the architecture's lifespan, which benefit for the reduction of material waste and environmental pollution.

Design Challenge

A simple and neat architecture is supposed to calm people down while provoking thought. The project is presented in a minimalist form so that it has higher demands for architectural shape, materials, spatial layout, lighting, etc. In other words, the project team confronted challenges of techniques, materials, cost and others.

Project Duration

The project started in April 2019 and finished in March 2020 in Xi'an, China.

Operation Flow

Backed up by natural resources, the project blends community life with nature, and makes the transition space serve as public area open to the public, hence creating a new city landmark that provides a "shared and breathing space" integrating leisure, green and activity areas. The architects utilized blank spaces to make nature as the core, and selected materials that can not only save cost, but also achieve the sustainability, so as to draw people closer to nature.

Research

The minimalism of "Less Is More" is a very popular lifestyle and attitude toward life nowadays. Throw away redundant things and select necessary ones to live a better life. The urban aesthetics center besides Yanming Lake can improve the quality life of people in Yanta District. Neat lines, plain palette, together with light and shadows create a simple and pure world.

Inspiration

Reflecting on the initial intention, it is crucial to form a harmonious coexistence relationship among the mountain, the river, the lake and heaven. "Embrace the lake, Blend with nature" requires a real integration with the surroundings. In this way, the existence of the architecture will not break the precious balance in this area. These are the principles that the architects strictly follow when designing the project.
