CAA Architects, led by Liu Haowei, released the urban design and architectural design of West Mountain Innovation Valley, also called Beijing Collaborative Innovation Park. This project is one of the Three-Hundred Key Projects of 2021 in Beijing. At present, the north block of Phase I, the largest building group in the whole project, has officially started construction.
The project is located at Sujiatuo Town of Haidian District, surrounded by the West Mountain and the Fragrant Hill of Beijing, with unique natural environment advantages. At the same time, it is the core area of China (Beijing) Pilot Free Trade Zone Sci-Tech Innovation Area and the new fulcrum of international iteration in ZhongGuanCun Industrial Development Zone.
"In Beijing, at the foot of West Mountain, facing such an area endowed with rich natural resources, we combine the architectural forms of mountains, courtyards and settlements with the rolling West Mountain to create an open, green and innovative future city integrating with nature and technology, which is called West Mountain Innovation Valley." - Liu Haowei
CAA architects participated in the international competition for this project’s urban planning and schematic design at the end of 2019. After several rounds of fierce comparison, with the design concept of a Freedom Ring crossing all blocks to form a Shanshui Innovation Valley, CAA stood out from the first-class international candidates, got the project finally and became the architectural designer of the project providing follow-up related professional services.
Nowadays, China has the resources and market depth required by a world-class sci-tech innovation center, and is reconstructing the political, economic, and technological territory of the world. ZhongGuanCun, Haidian District, as a key sci-tech innovation core area of Beijing, the capital of China, has established a leading position in the national and even global science and technology industry, and can be called the Silicon Valley of China. Beijing Collaborative Innovation Park, as an overflow of ZhongGuanCun industrial core and a key project of sci-tech innovation and leading-edge industries in the north of Haidian District, will deeply implement the strategic requirements of Two-New and Two-High in Haidian District with unique regional advantages, explore a new urban form of industry-city integration, and build a new highland of technology, talents and innovative economic demonstration.
CAA design combines the excellent ecological endowment of West Mountain and the cultural resources of Sujiatuo area, takes innovation, green and openness as the design strategy, fully considers the local and cultural characteristics of Beijing Collaborative Innovation Park, as well as the future development trend of the region, and builds it for scientific research and experiment, sci-tech information services as the core. It is an innovative intelligent park integrating unicorn headquarters, national engineering laboratories, sci-tech information center, life and health center, sci-tech innovation offices, leisure business, and other industrial functions.
The total area of the project is about 12 hectares, and the total construction area is about 288,000 square meters with FAR less than 1.8 and the greening rate as high as 30%. According to the natural and regional characteristics of the plot, it is mainly divided into three blocks: West, North and East, which are provided to Unicorn enterprises, growing enterprises and start-up enterprises with various scales of planning and design. The aboveground building area is about 186,000 square meters and the underground building area is about 102,000 square meters. The 1F and the B1 floors are planned for commercial supporting, shared offices, public services, and other functions, the 2F floor and above are offices for various enterprises of different scales, and the B2 floor is equipped with garages.
Known as the Head of Taihang Mountain in ancient times, the West Mountain is an important natural ecological barrier in Beijing as the Right Arm of the Divine Capital. At the same time, it has Three Mountains and Five Gardens with religious culture or as royal gardens, which is a noble place with excellent ecological environment, long history, rich cultural resources as well as favorable FengShui, timing and location. The West Mountain gives the project its most important geographical characteristic, while its location at the important special node of ecological conservation and urbanization also provides new possibilities for planning and architectural design. Taking this as a clue, CAA abandoned the high-density and rigid urban forest form and pursued the mutual integration and symbiosis of city, nature and humanity.
CAA integrates traditional Chinese courtyards with natural landscapes. The architectural form follows nature and outlines a curve like mountains and peaks. The design method of landscape and architectural language complements each other and organically connects with the surrounding urban landscape to shape a green 3D garden.
The overall environment of Beijing Collaborative Innovation Park is undulating, reflecting the West Mountain. Natural and cultural elements are collected, and the architectural form is flexibly superposed with the courtyard-style enclosed space. Liu Haowei put forward the design concept of West Mountain, North Courtyard and East Creak, which not only endowed the three blocks with unique architectural form and rich rhythm, but also integrated into one, creating a Natural Landscape scroll of mountains and rivers, courtyards, settlements, and fields.
"The idea of traditional Chinese courtyard is attached to the shape of landscape objects, so that people can walk among it and feel a super concrete realistic picture of Clouds and Waters Flowing among Mountains". - Liu Haowei
People gradually enter from the city and change in the freely flowing and high-low spaces with a Shanshui Ring. It's like walking in a picture scroll, wishing to climb high and look far, boating and sailing, and practicing science and technology, nature and humanities.
In the west block, the design concept of Shanshui is combined with the spatial form of enclosed courtyards. The architectural group focuses on the grand mountain and water together. The three main building towers are like mountains, with air gallery bridges, gardens and pedestrian ramps like flowing water interspersed between them. It will be the headquarters of unicorns in the future; The white podium surrounding the three towers will function as a relatively free and flexible shared office spaces, like a cloud hovering over the mountain.
At the same time, West Mountain block is located at the intersection of important urban roads, with the temperament of portal block. As an important entrance node of the project, it is designed to form the first urban facade entering the whole park. The inhaling spatial relationship guides people and vehicles into the enclosed and open park. Combined with the public green space, the large-scale natural landscape space that the building gives way has become the City Living Room Square. The three turn back slow steps in it turn the rooftop landscape of the podium into an open sky garden in the whole area, like the stream flowing down the mountain, which is full of interest.
The architectural planning of the north block organically combines the large public green space adjacent to the west, and integrates the traditional Chinese courtyard layout and residential aesthetics into the field of modern science and technology, with the solemn Chinese image of Courtyard, constituting the Oriental romantic image of futurism. The innovative space system of gable tower and courtyard podium is more adaptable and can be upgraded according to the needs of different stages in the growth process of enterprises.
The intensive small high-rise tower appropriately eases the density above, so as to meet the better viewing experience of users in the tower. The rich natural landscape on the ground extends to the underground floor through a more open space on the first floor, obtains the same day-lighting, and produces a public square experience that is both enclosed and flexible. Through the three-dimensional pedestrian system such as air bridge, the ground environment can be opened to the city and the internal pedestrian circulation can be connected.
Considering the scale relationship with the surrounding buildings, single small-scale towers form the building Settlement on the north and south sides. The murmuring Creek from west to East flows through the inner courtyard to the urban Garden outside the Park. At the same time, the water like central courtyard landscape and the scattered buildings form a spatial relationship between mountains, rivers and valleys, emphasizing the meaning of rivers and valleys.
The design retains a lot of flexibility for small, medium and start-up enterprises with single office in the plot. The systematic modular size can flexibly meet various needs of space transformation in the initial stage of enterprises. The office space can be divided and closed, maximizing the use efficiency and operation vitality.
The single building of the project is properly twisted to form a retreat platform, which greatly reduces the wind load with the organic form of overlapping, and also creates a full view of the landscape. The landscape design extends the natural view into the air. The roof garden of the podium and the open hovering runway provide a rich public platform for outdoor social and fitness activities, and become a new place for citizens to clock in. The transparent and open space layout on B1 and 1F floors connecting inside and outside provide small squares, gardens, courtyards and other public community spaces for surrounding residents to make a positive contribution to the urban environment.
CAA takes the Chinese humanistic landscape painting, Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountain, as the inspiration for the design of the building facade, and provides different design details of the exterior facades for the three blocks in the West, North and East. Through the use of digital and green energy-saving technology, compared with different brushwork stroking in landscape painting, the natural image of mountain, water and cloud integration are constituted the so-called Between Water and Cloud. The different details of the facade create a sense of lightness and transparency of each building, and give a maximum indoor comfort and lighting. At the same time, the buildings of different forms penetrate each other visually, forming an overall landscape picture.
The targeted green rate of the project is up to 30%. Through the introduction of natural landscape, a more green and low-carbon environment is created to achieve sustainable development. Meanwhile, the Shanshui Ring builds a slow traffic corridor running through the whole Park, connecting the green landscape of various blocks, extending to form a larger green health network. Moreover, the use of high-performance glass curtain wall, external shading louver facade components and other technical means help to achieve the highest level of Green Building in Chinese 3-Star Standard.
West Mountain Innovation Valley has triggered CAA team led by Liu Haowei's leap thinking on spatial scale and dimension, breaking the only normal replication way of traditional industrial parks and buildings, putting the integration of Futurism and Oriental Humanistic Spirit into practice, actively creating social value and influence, and combining the development trend of city, nature, humanities and scientific and technological innovation to build a three-dimensional city garden and realize the future urban vision of multi-dimensional superposition of nature and science and technology.
