Recently, "Geyuan", the architecture and interior design of the Hangzhou GeTui headquarter designed by LYCS Architecture, has been unveiled. The concave and convex curtain wall shimmers in the sunlight with golden light. At the same time, the large-span cantilever structure exudes a sense of rough power, and the confrontation between lightness and heaviness brings a precious moments of construction.
Merit Interactive Co.,Ltd. (GeTui) (stock code: 300766) is a professional data intelligence service provider, provide rich data intelligent products, services and solutions for customers in various industries such as Internet operation, user growth, brand marketing, financial risk control and government departments.
The project is located in Hangzhou Unicorn Industrial Park, with a building area of about 87,000 square meters, including R&D, independent office, open office, conference, exhibition hall, leisure and entertainment and other functional configuration with flexibility and diversity. After the completion of the project, it can accommodate about 4-5,000 people to work and live.
Throughout the cooperation process, the co-creation between the owner's team and the design team continues. The design team is deeply impressed by the flexible and changeable collaboration modes and colorful lifestyles of Internet companies, how to design a office headquarters that combines spatial flexibility and headquarters landmark?
LYCS Architecture put forward the design concept of "giant whale out of the water": three towers stand on the east, northwest and southwest sides of the site, forming a packaged overall layout; the podium connects the three relatively independent building blocks to form the large indoor continuous space provides office space for teamwork of various scales; the roof of the podium provides continuous and rich variable space for social entertainment, ecological sports and other lifestyles.
The architectural form strives to be simple, and the towers are slightly changed on the plane to visually reduce the sense of oppression of the building volume; each tower echoes from the left to the right, which enhances the connection between the building units and enriches the changes in the skyline of the building.
The partial uplift at the bottom of the tower above the podium provides a variety of outdoor activities and landscape space, and at the same time adds multiple depths of field to the space, creating a dynamic sense of about to break through the waves in the visual effect, like a whale at sea It is breaking the waves and jumping out of the sea, echoing and carrying the corporate culture of "Whale".
The large steps and three-dimensional grass slope provide a great imagination space for public activities. The structure has begun to take shape, and the owner team has begun to trial-produce electric curtain wall scheme——the hidden projection screen to prepare for the 2022 World Cup.
The building façade abandons the horizontal composition and implements the diagonal elements to the end. The curtain wall is composed of light gray metal aluminum plate, "ge" pattern ventilator and trapezoidal double-layer low-e hollow glass. Trapezoidal transparent floor-to-ceiling windows and rectangular plates are arranged in sequence and dislocated together, which is concise, lively and well-proportioned.
The design scheme of the façade comes from a pleasant co-creation between the owner and the designer, Getui is originated from the entrepreneurial team of college students. From a small team to a scale of over a thousand people, the open mind and anytime, anywhere discussion culture has been inherited. The owner hopes that there are many places for small meetings in the office space. The designer proposed to leave a walkway around the façade, and at the same time combine the discussion board with the façade, so that discussions can be held anytime and anywhere in the sun.
The "plaid shirt" style formed by the whiteboard and glass is Orderly but a little stiff, and the origami game played at will in the discussion gives the curtain wall agility from the oblique order of another dimension, which has been unanimously recognized by everyone.
In the process of deepening the curtain wall, the curtain wall consultant proposed that the 45° sharp-angle glass in the design plan is easy to be damaged, which is technically unreasonable. So the design team, the owner and the curtain wall consultant started a geometry problem together.
The implementation rotates the 45° acute-angle glass that is easy to be damaged in the conceptual scheme, and rotates it by 25°, and the glass from triangular into a trapezoid, which not only avoids the sharp angle, but also retains the original protruding oblique creases on the glass surface. A diagonal inward concave crease is added to the aluminum plate, which makes the folding effect better and pure three-dimensional.
The ventilator adopts a hidden design with a built-in open fan.The pattern of the perforated aluminum plate outside the opening fan adopts the "Ge" character element designed by Fang Yi, the founder of GeTui, which fully reflects the characteristics of corporate culture in details.
The subtle angle between the trapezoidal floor-to-ceiling windows enriches the reflection effect of the building facade on light, forming a unique oblique texture effect. On the basis of satisfying indoor sunlight and ventilation, under the light, it presents a sense of life like the scale of a whale.
Construction is progressing smoothly and the building is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
