As a renowned decoration and construction enterprise in domestic, Yasha Group chose to build its new headquarters in Zhijiang National Tourist Holiday Resort in Xihu District of Hangzhou, and expects its building character to resonate with its enterprise image.
The site has a length-width ratio of nearly 2:1 (east-west direction as the length). Based on a comprehensive analysis of surrounding environment, enterprise management model and client expectations, the architect wishes to not only meet the management requirements of enclosed headquarters but also create a rich and free courtyard office space.
To satisfy the demand for function-based partitioning, the headquarters building is divided into four 12-story main office buildings, with commerce and exhibition halls arranged in the two bottom layers. The partially partitioned design not only enhances street-front interfaces, but also connects the public spaces in the park, thus creating a multi-layer complex space with transparent sightline and controllable management.
To address the problem of the long and narrow shape of the site, the architect chose to shift the lobbies in the east, south and north towards the courtyard, so that the long side of the site is reasonably segmented and a landscape corridor connecting north-south office functions is added. In this way, a courtyard created by opposite north and south exhibition halls divides the entire park space into east area and west area, making the space far more intriguing. Combined with the landscape corridor and sunken courtyard, the internal courtyard is also partitioned into a series of spaces of variable dimensions.
The design of architectural details also reflects Yasha’s pursuit of after craftsmanship and technologies as a construction enterprise. With its concise style, elegant proportion, quality material and ingenious component, the architecture itself is perfectly integrated with the client’s brand image.
