Humans have created cities, but they have always yearned for nature.
Nature, people, cities, space, materials, each of these "objects" has its own growth logic from birth to death. While between mountains and seas, outside the city, I tried to extract a certain state of the timelines of these "objects" and recombined them to create a crowded scene between nature and the city.
The white old factory building in the Dapeng Id town international art district just became the spatial carrier of this scene. Through reconstruction, I transformed it into a motorcycle community that carries the spirit of riders shuttling between the city and nature.
The original building was a two-story old factory building, which was located on a higher platform at the entrance of ID Town district. There was an open long strip square in front of the factory building. This area was surrounded by mountains, with fresh air, abundant vegetation and mottled stone ground, where you could feel the chirping of insects and birds and the comfortable sea breeze. In this excellent environment, I tried to make nature and urban industry penetrate each other to create a penetrating space between the two, in order to experience the process of synchronous growth of nature and city and motorcycles became the carrier that shuttles between them.
After reconstruction: light and shadow, sound, people, motorcycles, and other objects are constantly changing not only on the entrance square but also inside the building, and thease dynamic changes will decline layer by layer after passing through the boundary of the building, so as to reflect the scene changes of movement and stillness, light and darkness, interior and exterior.
For the functional requirements of different sizes, a rectangular box has been built into the boundary of the existing building. Inside the box is used as the main display area and activity space of the Ronin motorcycle community, while outside the box, it creates dynamic spaces of different sizes between the box boundary and architecture boundary, and these dynamic spaces of different sizes correspond to different functions, such as reception, product display, storage, maintenance, logistics, rest, office, etc.
The box has holes of different sizes in different directions, which can meet the space permeability while making it possible for the common use of interior and exterior space of the box according to the change of functions. Under these basic logics, a multi-façade system is formed in the space.
The concrete steps in the reception area of the entrance run through the interior and exterior, through the glass, forming a kind of interpenetration between nature and urban industry, and the Enclosed and scattered steps also make the entrance space more vitality.
The huge daylighting windows on the outer facade and the staggered openings on the inner facade form a varieties corridor through the interpenetration of natural lights. The corridor runs through the entire space, which provides more interesting space possibilities.
The box itself and the original architecture boundary of the building define spatial forms of different sizes, such as a more open reception area to a gradually narrowing product area, and at the same time make different area with a different façade.
The secondary entrance opens for motorcycles. Motorcycles can enter the maintenance and display areas through this larger opening, while people can rest in the coffee area next to it. Through the huge windows on the facade, they can feel the natural landscape while waiting and watching the motorcycle dismantling and modifying, which also provides a way of dialogue between people, nature, and the city.
The second floor is an independent office, and the oblique opening on the inner facade shows the location of the staircase.
Plants and animals in nature will change with time and climate. I hope that the materials used for this project will also be the same, retain the texture and state of the materials themselves, and make them change with time.
For example, the mottled texture of cast-in-place concrete, the blue texture and cold touch of the steel plate after high-temperature hot rolling, the carbonized surface of the wood after being burned by fire, and the oxidized spots of brass and iron sheets. These undecorated materials are combined one by one. I hope that these materials produced in human industrial civilization can talk to nature through the changes of time.
The original states of materials are presented as undecorated decorations through the structural design and different combinations.
