Various views, full of twists and turns

Appreciations towards epos architecture for providing the following description:


The Garden Island of Hi-coffice was reconstructed from Chengdu Garden Hotel. After thoroughly exploiting the past and present of the garden in the hotel, the design aims to retain its original characteristics without disrupting the traces of its evolution over years by applying strategies of modification rather than demolishment.

基于业主有限的预算及其不允许改动场地的要求,我们决定采用“最低介入”的方式。 仅以“回廊”为基本元素。回廊借用场地原有路径,重建并延长过去的临时连廊,新建回廊避开了庭院中的所有的水石花树。将原酒店大堂改为茶室,回廊起点与终点均是茶室,最终构建出“疏密得益,曲折尽致,眼前有景”的庭院景观。


Considering the client’s limited budget and the demand to retain the site conditions, the “minimum intervention” approach is adopted to develop the design. The veranda, the basic design element, follows the original path in the garden, and the central hotel lobby is transformed into a tea house. The former canopies are replaced and extended into a closed loop with the tea house as the starting and also the ending point of the path. The veranda runs away from the stone and plants in the garden, and creates a delicate landscape of “proper dense, various views, full of twists and turns”.

The veranda is constructed of light steel structure. Thin columns, back beams, and the ground are coated with dark gray fluorocarbon paint. The same color conceals the material properties and produces a cruise path beyond material perception. The veranda runs away from the water, stone and plants in the courtyard, and creates a garden landscape of “proper dense, various views, full of twists and turns”. Considering the various landscape of rockery and planting along the path, the veranda is enlarged in some spots to form restable nodes, which provides “in-motion viewing” and “in-position viewing” in the courtyard, and also turns an ornamental courtyard into a place where people can share, communicate and even love.

Garden Island Courtyard, in a form of “contemporary garden”, is the public service area for the joint office. The original design intent is not to design a garden, but to create an environment overlapping daily life and poetic scenes, which is exactly in line with the spirit of Chinese traditional gardens. Therefore, it is logical to achieve the similar space atmosphere in this space.
