An Urban Forest Garden
Sentimental water meanders to Nanbo Bay which is adjacent to China Yinchuan Cultural Park, backed by wetland. Thousands of acres of lake city form a bay of beautiful scenery. The river surrounds the buildings with half-moon-shaped, likes the jade belt around the waist. The “Crowned river” Fengshui layout makes this architecture with good eyesight.
Abundant water resources and virescence have shown the project theme of "Nature, Science, and Humanities". Sunson Design makes the advantage of ecological conditions of living follows the water, which has let the visitors experience the ecological urbanization life and cultural heritage in advance and felt being accompanied by the mountains and lakes, where you will only want to enjoy the architecture.
Long staying in the buildings, return to nature
The "Hall of time" is located at the entrance of the building, generating the first impression of the project which is natural, warm, mysterious, and full of the ritual sense that entering this hall will step into an "isolated" natural park.
The divergent wooden dome simulates the sunlight, underneath which there’s a circular water view device marked with “Life should be spent on enjoying good things”, which showed life should be good and don’t waste time. Enjoy the lights, flowers, scenery, and settle down.
The reception hall is a small ecological miniature of "city rainforest" that the picturesque disorder bamboo forests, banyan trees, plantains, and other fresh green plants, and the low shrubs, wooden negotiation tables, and chairs has formed a longitudinally extending "indoor rainforest", which realized the organic combination of indoor, landscape and virescence design.
Looking up to the top, the cut pine and cypress trees are suspended, which reminds visitors to be in awe and return to nature, also to nourish the spiritual kingdom by sunlight, springs, and trees in a busy life. The corridor continues the natural ecological style, using logs, green plants, and undulating trees to enrich the spatial levels, the covering glass dome to draw light into the room and illuminate the atrium, which emphasizes the landscape of the transition from the outside to the inside.
Step out of the "rain forest" and walk into the sand table display area, where the small natural ecological landscape and stone walls highlight the key points of the space.
There are no very gorgeous lighting and other installations. Take the soft film ceiling above the sand table to focus the light, and the immortal moss to be the decorative carpet below, which has echoed the natural theme. It's like rowing a small boat. When you look up, there’s full of sunshine; when you bow, there’s full of reeds. It’s like walking slowly on the bank of a river, having a Utopian holiday, or watching the sunset in the desert.
