MOD-DESIGN have recently completed their latest project in Jiangmen City, China – Shimao-Jiangmen Bihai Yinhu Experience Center. Take a look at the complete story after the jump.
Full of merit,yet poetically,man dwells on this earth.—— Heidegger
From the architects: The last of Silver Lake Bay’s scarce resources, the land ends here and the sea begins there. It may get lost on the map, but it’s a wonderland, quiet and sacred, mysterious and peaceful.
The Secret Place of the Hidden City – City Hall
The end of the sky, the top of the deep sea, the blue sea and the silver lake, a heart of “Utopia” stands quietly between the sky and the sea.
Hegel once said that “existence is reason”, diluted corner, determines its identity and nature, its divine nature, towering ethereal space, leaving people endless imagination.
Back in the early 19th century, the mathematician Gauss expounded the Gaussian Cartesian coordinate system, and the main trim language of the sales office was modeled on Gaussian coordinate lines, adjusted, with sharp points replaced by gentle curved corners, repeated, arranged, and the beauty of mathematics incorporated into the design.
It is not so much a sales office, but rather a “place” for people and buildings and even the environment to produce emotions, a strong sense of sequence of spatial language, is the space to tell people, perhaps a story, an ancient dialogue …
In the infinite sequence and symmetry, the giant curtain stands in the middle of the place, “the white practice drapes the sky, the sound shakes the valley”, which is the design’s perception of the place, the awe of nature….
Steeply, glancing back, blue silence, extreme purity but not wild, Klein blue incorporates without explanation or words, evoking the mind’s dependence on space.
Space, sequence, repetition, extension, symmetry, is a reverence for the sacred, a reflection on space, a dialogue with place.
The walls are warm and soft milk white, as if to add a softness to this solemn and holy church-like temple, so graceful and so holy and noble. The stone has more than a power, power and beauty intertwined, evoke the desire for sacred space, evoke the emotional resonance between people and things.
“Light” is a natural gift, but also the design of the desire, is an important factor in human perception of space, a piece of semi-permeable acrylic with a line of light illuminated, infinite repetition, infinite continuity, outlining the immeasurable spatial scale, is hidden and also publicity. A dewdrop-shaped lighting, perhaps the space and people talk about falling touching tears, right?
Space soft furnishings with a sincere to life, to nature, with nature as the beginning, using 3D printing technology to restore natural things, vivid and ethereal.
“How do you remember me, with a smile or very silent” may be the memory this space wants to leave for a person, in the midst of the virtual reality, between firmness and softness, structured interlacing of light and shadow, forgetting the time with reverence wandering in the temple….
A dreamy, relaxing retreat – The Spa Center
“Light is the carrier that connects nature and space. The spa uses semi-permeable glass as the wall, bringing light and shadow into the room through the architecture, creating a dream experience between inside and outside, between the real and the unreal.
One step at a time, the sphere floating in the air, combined with the strong sense of sequence grille ceiling, becomes the visual focal point.
Through the forest, the water is glazed- Still Water Court
The restaurant also adopts the structure of interlocking arches in the air, forming an overlapping spatial order, incorporating an exotic resort style to create a sense of refuge, deep and shallow light and shadow to enhance the atmosphere of wild extravagance.
A slanting sun, a lamp, a halo of lost light, reveals the peace of the holiday, enjoy the ease of stopping….
The use of wood veneer and colorful elements makes the restaurant feel as if it has never left the bustling city center even though it is located in the mountains and wilderness, with a sense of interweaving the times and nature.
Light years away, the stars are shining – Starry Night Cinema
Walking into the theater, a slow starry sky is projected on the ceiling, with a hint of mystery and languor, softening the coldness of the space. When the film is projected, the connection between the starry sky and the screen enhances the flow of space, making it more layered.
Using the “spirit of place” in architectural phenomenology to interpret the design, people take up a poetic dwelling with a longing for poetry and faraway places, creating a sacred and dreamy art palace.
