Text description provided by the architects.
Located in Xinwu District, Wuxi City, this comprehensive community project is surrounded by numbers of residential areas and green spaces.
A commercial community in a street corner of the city, the project presents as an L-shaped architecture combined with buildings of small-volume boxes to delimit the public space for residents.
The connection and permeation between the architectures and the plaza delivers a variety of wonderful views.
The ground floor and upper space are connected by using large steps and various platforms, creating a rich spatial experience as well as providing the neighborhood with convenient education, shopping, and entertainment services.
Drawing from the concept of “to travel among the lights and shadows”, this architecture is designed with vivid outward-looking facade by using various materials to enhance its commercial atmosphere.
For example, uniformly designed straight grilles are placed at two angles in the main façade which form a lively skin texture and bring light-shadow effects.
A printing glass elevator is placed in the center which plays a key role both in visual and traffic function..
