Appreciation towards Describing Architecture Studio for providing the following description:


Zhushan, located in the hinterland of Qinba Mountain Area in Northwest Hubei Province, has a steep terrain. Surrounded by the river, its county seat is dense due to less flat land. With the cultural center and government offices moving to the other side of the river, on a rare strip of flat land, a new complex is born, undertaking the outward movement of urban life and echoing the old city. Nanshan wufutang foreign language school, as an important part of attracting Zhushan people to travel back, is located in this complex.

The site area of Nanshan wufutang foreign language school is about 21460 square meters. It needs to accommodate 45 classes of primary school, junior high school and senior high school, with a total floor area of 20000 square meters. It is surrounded by roads and other commercial and residential buildings. Due to the requirements of spacing ,specification and sunshine, and the functional zoning of small, middle and high schools, the building is destined to be carried out in a tense layout.

The first floor of the building is basically in the state of full paving, and six groups of functional blocks, on the premise of meeting the specifications and use, have just been stuck in their position by the spacing requirements. Canteen, covered court, lecture hall are set in the middle of the teaching building, only in the teaching building between the gables, leaving a 15 meter wide corridor. We hope to create a unique connection on the main channel of the North-South entrance and the main connecting space of each functional block.

Primary school, junior high school and senior high school teaching buildings do not need to connect each floor; The shared laboratory building needs to be more closely connected with them. Therefore, we set up curved corridors of different positions and floors according to the demand. On the North-South Corridor, formed a high and low scattered space experience. The flowing horizontal lines surround the main building and form the main external image of the school. Each layer of the curved corridor changes, resulting in a unique sense of scattered, and also makes the viewer have a unique perspective and viewfinder on the surrounding environment. The interior walls of the classroom are painted in dark gray to produce a visual retreat, lively contact with white paint to form a visual highlight, and each layer of gradual change of color under the roof is intended to create some temperature and relaxation in the tense campus life.

The height difference between the north and the south of the site is 6 meters, which forms a double first floor activity space, and the south entrance connects with various overhead activity rooms; The north entrance is connected with the courtyard space on the ground, and the two-tier space is connected by various hollowed out courtyards and stairs, which makes the ground activity site interesting and extended in both horizontal and vertical directions.
