Location: DSH-H1-1-12 Parcel, Lingang New Town, Pudong District, Shanghai Design: 2014.01 - 2016.12 Completion: In Construction Building area: 11000 ㎡
Site area: 29100 ㎡
The base of Dishui Lake Terminal 1 is located in the green are on the northwest side of the lake. Its northern side is the planned commercial building block, and the subway entrance and exit are about 100 meters away. Therefore, besides becoming an important transportation facility in the future, the terminal and its surrounding green space were also aimed to become a very important waterfront public node for the surrounding area.
Considering various site design conditions and architectural functional requirements, the design views the architectural and landscape topography as a whole, yet maintains an independent design concept in terms of structure. Thus, the wharf and the surrounding areas will turn into a green, tree-lined, and pleasant public green space. Also, the wharf supporting buildings will become part of the lakeside in the way of the landscape. It is possible to make effects matching the lake scenery and to form a space that can accommodate activities and be easy to stay.
The building is linearly laid out along the lake in the base, with a mesh structure that maximizes the space under a porous green roof. Since the project locates in the coastal area, the design adopts the reinforced concrete structure to withstand erosion from the sea breeze. Therefore, the entire building will be laid out in a short span of about 6 meters but provide a wide-angle view for visitors. In addition to minimizing the interference of the component size on the line of sight through the bracing and brackets, the ceiling lighting wells and the roof greening tree pool are also taken into consideration. Therefore, a kind of indoor and outdoor space communication is constructed, and the viewing effect can be integrated into the horizontal direction.
