The design aimed to preserve and reform the old factory and build an innovative, sustainable employment base, build garden-like work and life style. The original architectural style is Bauhaus; the overall structure is still in its integrity and its facade lines, and proportions are still harmonious and unified with its unique aesthetic feelings. With the design idea of replacement and filling, we moderately open some of the huge closed factories and add new buildings as public art spaces, step by step adding and reforming from the inside to out. We have no intention to define clear boundary but try to build a dynamic, interactive, flexible framework, in order to make its own constantly adapt to new needs of the city.

The cell structure is injected into the Landscape and architectural design to build an ecological and recreational business park image.
Follow the concept of the green leaf cells, the architectural design evolves the cells into a three-dimensional effect through extruding, pressing and inclining. The five cells facing to the central waterscape plaza are set as five different functional areas, organically connecting the central plaza as a whole. Based on the Theory of the Five Elements in China, the five functional areas are given the different cultural connotation: the conference center represents the “metal”, the coffee shop/tea club represents the “wood”, the dining room represents “water”, the branding operation center represents the “fire”, the exhibition hall represents the “earth”. The single buildings with the unique interior space, green roof and yards, surrounding the central plaza, provide a business communication platform of leisure and activity.

The main landscape was made by the eastern static landscape experience area, the earth art experience area, the sports center building and the dynamic scene, at the same time, combining by jogging, cycling, roller skating to make the slow motion space, creating the rich experience waterfront space.

In order to show the nature and principle of water plant to filtrate and purify the water, designers create a unique art Sculpture of “water dominoes”, a concise and modern water landscape, from waterscape to handrails, not only echoing the buildings of the site, but also expressing the characteristics of water.
