The design concept of the project focuses on an high-efficiency use of land. Both the commerce and the apartment adopt a centralized structure, giving way to a sight gallery for the residences on the northwest side to see the park and minimizing the interference to the residences.

NEW URBAN LANDMARK (3IN1 TOWER)
The concept of “3in1” tower has been creatively designed for the apartment, which has already become the Bao’an’s new landmark by emphasizing the simple and complete interfaces along the city road and harmonizing with the Lingzhi Park.

A CONTINUUM WITH DISCONTINUITIES-THE VOID
“the continuum and the STONE ”
In order to show respect to the park, the building shape is inspired by the stones in the park. The abstract stones are in perfect harmony with LingZhi park both continuum (dynamic lines) with discontinuities (void). The simple and lofty volume, the organic flow of transverse lines together with the precise detail, highlights the image of the building. Additionally, the building’s height and the large cantilever that has strong visual impact creates the new landmark in the area.
DIVERSIFIED SPACE COMBINATION
There are three atria within the commercial area in varied styles to create a vibrant internal space. The combination of straight lines and curves in the shop design forms an abundant interface, which provides a relaxing and pleasant shopping environment and helps to guide the people flows between different space, organically connecting all the atria.

MULTIPLE FUNCTION COMPOUND
The commercial area consists of four floors above ground (five floors including a partial one) and two below. The reasonable mixture of business types fully demonstrates the diversified culture of shopping, catering, recreation and leisure in the shopping mall, leading to a reasonable distribution of people flows on each floor. Meanwhile, the irregular layout of some business types further embodies the distinctive features of the mall.

MULTIDIMENSIONAL AGGREGATION OF MOVING LINES
With the three atria as the nodes, the commercial moving lines are organized in such a way as to fully consider the subways, buses, people flows on the road, as well as the flow guidance in the northern residential area and in the southern park. As a result, a commercial space of tridimensional, comprehensive and diversified style was created, with multiple layers, flow lines, and entrances together with the surrounding sites.

DEMONSTRATION OF DETAILS
KRION Solid Surface
The organically flowing transverse lines on the building facade are made up of KRION Solid Surface, which contains natural minerals and high-resistance resins, making it possible to create any type of complex designs. Its malleability and the fact it is easy to shape make it possible to design any curved sections. In addition, the material does not have any pores; it is anti-bacterial, hard-wearing, highly resistant, durable, easy to repair, low maintenance and easy to clean.
