Tianjin Vanke Jade Avenue Sales Office (Sales Center) by Lighting Design Partnership International (China Branch) Co., Ltd.
2018 - 2019, Platinum A' Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design Award Winner
By taking advantage of the natural reflection of the waterscape, the lighting virtually doubles the volume of the building with its main entrance as well as the various arches around the two wings of the building.
This sales center is located in the Qingxi district of Tianjin, China. The architect chose to combine: a contemporary glass curtain wall design with aluminum panels shaped into arches referring to those of the early nineteen hundreds within the Five Avenue of Southern downtown, formerly known as the British Concession. The skylight, equally splitting the building into two wings, transforms itself into two glass curtain wall entrances (the main one being on the Southwest and the secondary on the Northeast).
Design Challenges
The most challenging element for the facade was to ensure that lighting fixtures that were confirmed during the mockups were properly and actually commissioned to be used in the actual and final facade.
Production Technology
The facade lighting takes advantage of the waterscape to naturally mirror and virtually double the volume of the building. Three separate layers of LED lights illuminate each of the three distinct layers of arches that differ by depth, height and width. The skylight and main entrances are lit by the warm interior glow. Each area inside the building is treated distinctly based on its function with LED lights which ensure visitors are welcome in this space.
