The proposal provided two horizontal buildings instead of two vertical ones which broke the client’s original conception. Giving a bridge to connecting the area above the third floor, we successfully provided the client an open commercial street horizontally in the middle zone.
The two buildings are of different functions. The north building with PTFE double layer façade is the Trade Center, while the south building is a hotel serving the trade center. The façades shield the north side of the building from the north wind, while making the hotel in the south quiet and comfortable.
At night ,the people busy working inside and movements will be clearly defined by the light, which would provide a dynamic action together with the bustling crowds on the street.
