Xizi Hangguo Wisdom Industrial Park is located at Dingqiao of Hangzhou. It is an integrated wisdom park for high-tech startups, business offices, business meetings, and recreation and entertainment. The project is divided into three parts, namely, the main Hangguo section, the renovated old factory buildings, and the eastern section.
The main Hangguo section features clusters. While there are different types of courtyard spaces inside each cluster, the clusters are integrally connected. At the center of the section, there is a diamond-shaped conference center, which together with the round square on the south helps to integrate different functional clusters and becomes the center of vigor and vim. The three high-rise clusters use different facade textures to express different personalities. There are neat vertical lines, extensive horizontal lines, and flexible and playful casements to indicate different cluster attributes that are in tune with their respective functions. The multi-layer facades are made of warm-colored lining bricks and are separated into different parts in an orderly way. Warm-colored punched boards and distinct patterns are used for the conference center to signal it as an iconic landmark.
The old Hangguo factory is situated in the south of the land lot. It has been around for decades. The relocation of the factory gives the site an opportunity for a facelift. While keeping the main structure of the factory building unchanged, the architects redesign its inner functions by integrating a hypermarket, business facilities and a parking lot. In addition to that, the architects create special public spaces to highlight a unique business atmosphere. The large roof covers the commercial atrium, and the two major squares respectively on the south and on the north are connected. The commercial street inside the main Hangguo section is linked to the eastern section, forming an integral whole for business activities. The facade design of the old factory building highlights the retention of original factory elements and the addition of approachable and inviting features. Through the use of warm-colored punched aluminum boards, the integrity and completeness of the facades are ensured. In the meanwhile, the rhythmic changes of the facades and the impressive modification of the canopy help to create a good image of the whole complex and the entrance, thus ensuring that the project is a benchmark that can be showcased to the outside.
The eastern Hangguo section is the eastern entrance to Xizi Hangguo Wisdom Industrial Park. Its design features an open space to create an entrance square and an arched glass roof to guide traffic. The design of the image tower and the glass roof helps to strengthen the connection of the entrance square with the western commercial street. To underscore the business atmosphere at the entrance, its shape is designed to be flexible and playful and naturally connect with a curved canopy to form a continuous whole.
