Hangzhou Art& Fashion Town, Phase II

The project location covers two plots, for which design and construction are undergoing simultaneously. On the west plot, there are eight high-rise residence buildings and two one-storey or multiple-storey supporting buildings together with basement. The total floor area is 110,698.12㎡. Exterior walls, built with face bricks combined with metal decorative elements, makes the fa?ade simple and grand. The supporting buildings also serve as south and north main entrances. Their faced is decorated with modern metal elements and glass curtain walls, which are eye-catching. On the east plot, there are 29 buildings including 26 mulitiple-storey commercial buildings, one high-rise commercial building and one high-rise comprehensive building. There are two storeys of underground garage, including some bicycle parking place. The total floor area is 241,463.14㎡.

 

Modern elements are applied to the architectural style. Design approach of contrast between the virtual and the real, together with vivid details, offers a sense of rhythm for the buildings. Detailed changes on vertical elements and the contrast between glass and stone materials make the building’s appearance look harmonious with abundant elements. Outer walls of the comprehensive building are mainly constructed with light grey dry hanging stone and glass curtain walls, which makes the wall have a tactile appeal. Architectural outline is simple and grand, with abundant details. Grey space like set-back, terrace, veranda and balcony are used to improve indoor ventilation and lighting, and create office and commercial space full of affinity and fashion. Supporting The supporting buildings also serve as south and north main entrances. Their faced is decorated with modern metal elements and glass curtain walls, which are eye-catching.

 

Through the whole life circle of the project, design work is completed with the concept of being rigorous, scientific, practical and innovative. Important factors like project features, design work in the late period and guidance for construction are taken into consideration. BIM models and related design methods are applied in the whole process.

 

As there are many single buildings with various shapes and complicated glass curtain walls, it is difficult to express ideas only with traditional 2D drawings. We creatively use BIM in the whole process together with drawings. This method greatly improves accuracy of design information and reduces mistakes, missing information, conflicts and absence of information. Besides, results of BIM can also be used for design information exchange with the curtain wall constructor, marketing, comprehensive improvement of pipes and lines and so on. In this way, integrity of information transfer is ensured. Meanwhile, combination of light-weight coordination platform and VR technology makes the design information flow fluently among project stake holders, and improves decision-making efficiency.
