The base of the project is located on the south-facing street corner, on the north side of Central Park, the overall longitudinal shape, covering an area of about 23,000 square meters. The design of the streamlined flat configuration is inspired by the brand logo of Jinhuan. Through the disassembly and reset of the two-dimensional graphics, three functional rings, “Prologue Ring”, “Ecological Ring” and “Experience Ring”, are formed in a continuous and intersecting way to form a smooth and continuous tour route, so as to connect multiple functional modules. By stretching and rotating the space of the ring longitudinally, two roof trusses are formed.

The interior space is enclosed by a curved glass curtain wall, which increases the sense of suspension of the roof. It exudes its unique charm in the interplay of natural light and shadow.

The transparent and lightweight mass and the sight guidance of the C-shaped semi-enclosed roof truss allow the building to integrate with the surrounding environment. The whiteness of the building and the green of nature mingle with each other, taking a secluded place in the busy city, which is the northward spread of Central Park.

The roof truss adopts an open curtain wall system. On the two roofs, combined with the
structural skeleton, several curved openings are arranged to meet the floodlight design effect of indirect lighting. And through the three modulus roof opening sizes, to correspond to different flood lamps, to achieve a gradient effect while perfectly hiding the lamps.

The inner roof of the vertical seam is connected to the annular drainage to form a roof water diversion system, and organized stormwater drainage is achieved through storm drainage pipes located at the low points at both ends of the roof. The arrangement of the rainwater pipes combined with the overall column network plane is cleverly hidden in the column network system. Landscape architects use modern abstract techniques to outline the forms of land, forest and water around three functional rings, forming a landscape space with a sense of rhythm. The linear landscape paving serves as a guide to the tour path, creating a dynamic spatial experience.
