Residential and Business area - Dalian (China)

Paster plan project (Beijing)

DescriptionGalleryDetails


The urban area of 621 558 sqm, subject of this urban planning proposal, is located on the territory of a dismissed factory and a run down reseidential quarter. The location is peripherically to the city center of Dalian, but central to the harbour and New Town.

The design is structured in tree sectors:
1)    a residential area along the northern boundary,
2)    the central spine of public functions
3)    the residential area along the southern boundary.

In all residential areas prevails the amount of landscape design, distinguishing public from private green. Pedestrian paths guarantee a circulation throughout all areas binding them together and integrating the central area of public buildings. The public space there assumes more urban characteristics of paved spaces, narrow pedestrian streets among the high rise buildings as well as squares different in shape and size – some of them with dramatic outlooks into the neighbouring residential quarters with its lush green.

An important focus has been put on the quality of urban spaces throughout the whole area of intervention rather than big design gestures. The spaces have been tried to design from the point of eyesight of the user. Example main street: On the south side of the street the public buildings stuck densely together, which finds relieve on the north side where buildings are set back in a green belt. Behind a first line of smaller and detached buildings which contain service functions and a kindergarten, two layers of buildings follow (buildings E first and behind them buildings AA and C) which gradually increase in height. The shape of the buildings E (18 floors) has been bent in order to enhance the visuality of the space in-between.
