Baihuan Community Square Renovation
The project locates at the centre of Baihuan Community, Chaoyang District, Beijing. The community has been realised for ten years, and all of the public facilities need to be renewed. After carefully investigating the public requirement from the resident, we bring a certain design proposal which better improves public space quality by fewer intervention and construction.
The west part is a rectangle square, it is used for public event and people gathering. We retained the original floor pavement, adding a circular pattern pixelated two hot-melt coating consisting of two square pattern as a division of the activities in the region. The pixel block grow vertically at the edge in order to form flower beds and sitting benches. The resident living in high-rise building around is also able to see the circular pattern from their window.
East part is circular plaza, the status quo is a semi-enclosed tertiary level. By strengthening our sense of enclosure to define the theme of the Circus Space Square: half-moon yellow walls to strengthen the sense of heart circular plaza, originally shorter steps wooden seats were added to the convenience of residents to sit down rest, increasing the mushroom chairs and bright colors to bring vitality to the plaza.
