Huafa City Hub Wuhan (Sales Center) by Rita Chow
2016 - 2017, Golden A' Interior Space and Exhibition Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The character of water lies in moving and motionlessness. Therefore, how to embody it and absorb it into space naturally have become the key to our design. As a result, we turn both real interior and exterior waterscapes, rooftops, walls and screens and even lightings, artworks, murals and ornaments, etc. into vivid carriers of water. And these objectified images of water can unexpectedly evoke the visitors' inner response to beautiful moments.
Creativity
Intending to design a building style connected with Wuhan, we conducted a deep research of the local culture. Sparkling ripples in the East Lake after rain inspired the designers and led us to the answer—water. Wuhan is a city linked by rivers, lakes and pools. Water has not only witnessed its development and prosperity, but also nurtured its history and humanity for thousands of years. So we aim to create a natural space with water as the theme.
Design Challenges
Wuhan is an important inland port city at the Yangtze River located in central China. Its influence covers the whole central China and extends to the southwest. This project is located in Wuhan’s new CBD, and the entire project includes commercial plaza, hotel, office building, luxury residential and apartment. How to reflect the uniqueness and influence of the city in the sales center, and introduce the whole project as far as possible to the guests while conveying the uniqueness of the project, reflecting the quality of the project is the problem which should be solved by the designer.
