• Escape City Life – Enter a Parent/Child World of Imagination

    28 February 2023

    The aim of this project is to enable a new generation of parents and kids to pull away from the busy city life and enter an imaginative parent child world The concept of this composite family space is “Valley of Dreams” which includes integrated functions of play, learning, dining and socializing.

    Situated in an independent building in Shenzhen Nanshan Park, the characteristics of the double height volume was fully expressed with newly built mezzanine levels to create vertical extension and spatial excitement for kid’s self exploration The whole environment was totally made of curves to break the rigidity of the building periphery boundary and seamlessly connect all activity zones situated at the 3 different levels To follow the curvilinear tectonics, an abstract landscape of valley’s seasonal changes was mimicked in provoking kid’s imaginations The overall design language is a strategic manipulation of symbolic colors shapes, scales and tactility to fulfill functional and emotional requirements of a play scape and gave memorable experience for kids and parents.
