This sales center locates near the famous water town Zhujiajiao of Qingpu District in Shanghai, about 50 minutes’s way from the downtown by car. In such a quiet and natural environment with frondent trees around, TEAM_BLDG takes the connection between interior and outdoor spaces as the original intention of design. Due to some restrictions on the time schedule and budget, TEAM_BLDG try to create a new kind relationship among the indoor space, out-door space and landscape in the simplest way. They chose a special kind of aluminum grille frame with different height as the architectural expression of “cloud”, meanwhile this special frame makes a unconventional division on these several layers of space on the facade, which just meets the intention of this project. For example,they expand the use of grille not only on the facade but also the groud part, on the one hand, the ground part surrounded by grille becomes the courtyard; on the other hand, the 1st floor’s vitreous facade become completely transparent, makes indoor and outdoor’s segment more ambiguous.

格栅——云外 SCREEN – Outside the Cloud


Design details:
Since the main entrance of the residential area and the sales center is connected by a circuitous bridge, every visitor has to walk through about 200 meters way to reach the sales center. In order to provide this journey more interesting visual experience, TEAM_BLDG also use parametric software to design the grille. They rotate each aluminum strip with different angles to get the view changed with visual point. In the process of visitors gradually approaching the building, the surface of the building also has a virtual and actual change subtly and interestingly, bring visitors step moving scene with the feeling of veiled in mist.

水院——云里 WATER COURTYARD – Inside the Cloud


After entering the courtyard, there is a 5 square meters’ small stage which is inspired by the local traditional custom called ‘village opera on water stage’. Normally this traditional opera stage is surrounded by water, and audience sits in the boat facing the stage. Then in TEAM_BLDG’s design, the stage is surrounded by 2 steps of waterscape and seats inbetween, it aims to bring visitors be personally on the scene of enjoying the performance on water.

As a sales center, client hopes to arrange more rest and communicating space except the basic commercial use space. In order to meet this demand, TEAM_BLDG put a super giant bookshelf as a layer connects partial space between 1st and 2nd floor. This multi-functional bookshelf plays an quite important role in the whole interior space that it is not only as a wall to separate business and leisure area, but also the staircases from 1st to 2nd floor as well as 2nd to 3rd floor together with the bar part are both part of this bookshelf, moreover, the connecting part between bookshelf and floor ‘grows’ out many seats for visitors to take a rest.

During the way from 2nd floor 3rd floor, visitors will go through a narrow and isolated space then suddenly entering a open bright gallery. In addition, the continued use of wood and cement starting from the 1st floor separate this gallery space into two parts, which also makes a rather clear division for the function use.
