Located in the centre of Shantou’s New East Coastal Area, the project enjoys expansive views of Xinjin River while taking in an endless view of the coastal water and sky.
The sales gallery’s facade design demonstrates delicate bespoke design – a picturesque envelope inspired by the elegant form of traditional Chinese folding fans, with extensive use of glass curtain walls to invite ample sunlight into the buildings, promoting visibility and spatial interaction between outdoors and indoors. The building mass is strategically subtracted to open up a wide, progressive archway, creating public space and guiding visitors towards this work of art. Through precise calculation and design of the truss system, the massive arched roof converges from height towards a single point that touches down on the waterscape.
