OSO Studio Limited | Zhuhai INTL red wine trade centre
The project site is located at free trade zone of Zhuhai city, Guangdong province, across the sea to Macau and Hengqin island. Red wine trade centre combines a trade market, a hotel and offices; it’s the start point of the process which redeveloping existing Zhuhai manufacturing industry free trade zone to a free trade zone for commodities in future. On the site of bonded area of Zhuhai, we created a landmark building that cannot be copied. The building presents an unique calling card for the further bonded area and city.
The attraction of the building derived from the balance of static versus dynamics in visualization while design is to develop the manner that can reassemble two kinds of visual element into the formal dynamic balance that can achieve the integral uniformity. We re-interpret the relationship between the themes of red wine and the building, create an elegant building that can be reading differently when moving from any place surrounding it.
Looking from north, fluid surface wrapped rigid structure, shows a harmonic co-existence of hardness and softness; and conveys a unification of strength and grace. The podium and tower are separated but connected; a grand canopy that formed by upper fluid volume of tower covers entries of office and market in the north. Looking from south, podium and tower are integrative, horizon and vertical movement are transited seamlessly, shows elegance which imitates fluidity of liquid. Horizon movement form of podium reflects planar urban energies — cars’ movement, crowds, water, landscape, and other, then goes up, rises accelerate, and converges into the rigid tower smoothly.
