Hua Yuan Residential ensconced in the West Lake Scenic Spot is a renovation project integrating residence and club.
The project site is backed by a green tea garden and facing a puddle of clear water, however, the existing building Huafeng Hotel on the site has some obvious design defects - scattered massing, disorderly layout, rigid appearance and disorganized internal spatial streamline, resulting in a separation of outdoor landscape and internal space. In face of these complex problems, the design divides renovation into three major issues, namely resetting functions and streamlines, sorting out spaces and courtyards, and reshaping architectural styles. Through continuous and detailed communication with the client, the functional layout of the architecture was gradually defined, so that the design can not only provide a feasible streamline for future service but also strike a balance between current conditions and economic cost. Combined with the comprehensive settings of all kinds of electro-mechanical equipment and related pipelines, the design aims to seek the optimal combination for function replacement on the basis of these limits.
The design of external space draws inspiration from traditional Chinese-style garden space, and uses enclosure and gallery to mark out a continuum of courtyard: Each building is designed with landscape that consists of front garden, backyard and private courtyard, and connected with covered corridors. The open spaces on the north and south ends of the site are organized into two concentrated gardens as well.Walking into Hua Yuan Residential, guests can enjoy picturesque sceneries at every step from the main entrance to each entry door. The gray space perfectly integrates internal and external sceneries and embeds the building in the garden.
The appearance design of the building adopts a new Chinese style with creamy white stones, wood-like metal frames, metal roofs and other modern materials to heighten an elegant architectural atmosphere.
