Located in Yangang Industrial Park of Zhu Village, Zengcheng District, Guangzhou, China, the project boasts convenient transport, adjacent to Guangzhou-Shantou Road, back against Pearl River and facing Shiling Ridge.

The biggest challenge of the project is the noise and disorder of the transit expressway which greatly interfere with the quality of the space. The two towers that have been under construction also post pressures on the project in terms of volume and constraints on its construction process.

Therefore, we adopted a range of sight and hearing management strategies to let people experience in a specially constructed "place".
▲ 手稿 Sketches
According to the characteristics of the site, four solid walls and the dedicated angle of the sloping roof are adopted to block the interference of external noise, and limit people’s sight to a specific zone while creating a new place in the site. The new walls and existing buildings also divide the site into four courtyards: the front yard, two indoor courtyards, and the back yard. The two courtyards can effectively attract people’s sight and attentions, so as to achieve the goal of sight management.
