Nanjing, a fast-growing city, with the continuous advancement of urbanization, people are not only limited to looking back at the past, but also focus more on the current life. How to use limited space, to improve the quality of life of residents while balancing the relationship between business and the community?It became a new topic in the eyes of Laurent designers.
Today's Nanjing has rich historical relics,at the same time, the refinement and modernization in urban development also run through the past and the present.
The site is located in Jiangning district, Nanjing.adjacent to the Dongshan urban life section and the Baijiahu comprehensive development section. Jiulong Lake Comprehensive Development Sector belongs to the core area with high development value. The site is located in Jiangning District and has good accessibility. The traffic mainly enters from Shuanglong Road to Zhushan Road and Tianyin Avenue. The subway can pass through the Tianyin Avenue Station on Line 1 and arrives near the site. The main conflicts that need to be solved in the design are to create a space of good use value and exquisiteness in the noisy and busy areas.
项目概念 PROJECT CONCEPT
In the early stage of design, designers have different opinions on choosing open space or closed space. Space should not only meet the commercial requirements of the sales area but also to meet the needs of residents living close to the park. In the end, the designers combine these two forms. From the overall perspective, the spatial distribution of indoor and outdoor presents a visual occlusion relationship, and functionally conforms to the needs of different groups of people.
In the design, a question was raised: “How to break the public’s inertia thinking about community quality with new planning and design concepts?” We navigated a more ecological, more comfortable and free life scene, creating a unique Soft-Life for each experiencer.Social: High-end commercial complex and community center,Oxygen (aerobic): pocket park with green allee and a separated garbage disposal facility,Freedom (free): leisure walkway and high-speed subway expressway,Technology (Wisdom): Convenient human service function.
空间探索 SPACE EXPLORATION
In the first direction exploration, we envisioned to design the site into a fully open space, combining the green space outside the property line and taking the geometric grassy hills as a visual shaping element. The grassy hills mainly serve the surrounding residents and the pedestrians, showing customers the future operation of the commercial district.
The second direction based on strong marketing purpose is to plan the site into a fully enclosed environment, which isolates inside and outside, forming a traditional closed sales space to mainly serving potential customers who visit and purchase houses.
With the improvement of the quality of life in the community, the project relies on the green ecological landscape atmosphere and enhances the neighborhood interaction of the residential area. At the beginning of the design, the inclusive architecture was built to build a C+ infinitely intelligent community based on people’s thinking. In terms of function, it also takes into account marketing needs and enhances the corporation’s image and social effects.

主入口空间 MAIN ENTRANCE SPACE
The design takes the garden as the screen and the forest as the boundary to emphasize the sense of ritual, interaction and sense of place. The leaf-shaped logo combining with the waterscape emphasizes the brand image in the entrance space. Metal lines and strips in the mirror waterscape also enrich the night scene.

儿童活动空间 CHILDREN’S ACTIVITY SPACE
延续景观整体空间模块，进一步延伸了C＋无限社区的设计理念，选取色彩较温润的方正铺装组合。以“森语 · 飞鸟乐园”为儿童区主题，还根据儿童不同年龄段设计不同的游玩设施，将场地和功能完美结合。
We continue the overall spatial module of the landscape, further, extend the design concept of the C+ Infinite Community, and selects a grid pavement combination with a warmer color. With the theme of “Children and Birds Paradise” in children’s playgrounds, we also design different play facilities according to different ages of children to combine the site characters and functions.

洽谈空间 NEGOTIATION SPACE
There are different communication and negotiation spaces in indoor and outdoor spaces. The varied small-scale space combination is integrated into rich functional activities. The design of progressive public communication spaces makes communication and sharing become a keynote in daily life.
In the selection of plants, the bright leaf shrubs match the flowering herbs to create a quiet and relaxing area for visitors, smelling the flowers, feeling a natural comfort, and experiencing the sun and rain. Although the flowering time of the plants is different from the originally estimated opening time, the final effect is not much different.
Many old urban areas in the city lack services such as outdoor public seats, planting beds and night lighting The city lacks open space for people to gather and communicate. Therefore, we have added a lot of seats and walls in the design, combined with the planting beds to form a variety of forms of combination and enclosed spaces.

In the design and selection of the lightings, the design team works with the manufacturers closely to choose materials and styles. How to achieve the desired effect in the design drawings? After many times of overturning and scrutiny, the lightings were finally selected and used in the real scene.
