In March 2022, DAGA Architects received an invitation from Yonyou Network to renovate a gymnasium located in Yonyou Software Park, 68 Beiqing Road, Haidian District, Beijing, for the main purpose of sports and commercial sales in the park. Different from the traditional large-scale stadium construction, Yonyou Stadium shows a light and simple image. After the completion of the upgrade, the stadium will give full play to the service attributes of the supporting facilities in the park, mainly for the use of Yonyou and enterprise employees in the park, and provide venues for a variety of sports, including basketball, badminton, table tennis, and multi-function gym.
Yonyou Network is the world's leading enterprise cloud services and software provider. Dedicated to using ideas and technology to drive business and social progress. In the early stage of planning, we unified the visual hammer in the venue, taking Yonyou red and Yonyou grey in the Yonyou visual image specification as the main color of the space. The stadium, gym, and running track area were also enabled by the zoning of orange, blue, and green, and the multi-color walls with different color temperatures transitioned from one area to another, permeating each other and forming a harmonious connection.
The facade before the transformation is relatively single and old. Based on this, the size of the original door head is first expanded. The metal stretching net material extends from the door head to the interior. When the light tube shines through the metal net from top to bottom, the refraction makes the scattered fragmented components into a unique whole. We try to inspire curiosity and curiosity about the converted site: the same way a child always wants to know what's in a gift box.
After the transformation, the entrance of the new stadium is open to the public with an oblique incision shape, softening the stiff boundary between the original field and the outside. Color is the concept of spatial guidance and is also part of the decoration.
The north facade of the building is facing the large green space as an extension of the space movement form. The entrance is integrated with the green space, giving people a feeling of spaciousness and relaxation. The addition of an open leisure area at the north entrance attracts people to walk into and really use every space.
Under the premise of limited cost, we took sports-style interior signs as the highlight of space design, and specially designed the vi system of runway style, the guide system of metal tensile mesh, the ground runway, etc.
The internal functional areas are distributed around the wide "runway concept", which not only receives and gathers people but also connects the various functional Spaces inside the building. From the outside, the "runway" enters the interior, leading to the coffee area and gym on the first floor. Continue along the "runway" to the second floor to enter the badminton and basketball court; The "runway" continues to the table tennis area on the third floor.
As the self-use sports venue of Yonyou Industrial Park, we hope to not only provide rich sports options for employees but also become a place for young people to socialize after work.
The clear and simple plan allows visitors to quickly understand the building space. The venue contains a variety of sports types and supporting services. In the early stage of design, different experiences and possible problems needed by users in the set scene were taken into consideration from different angles. Specially customized ICONS and guides were selected to facilitate a more soothing series of the whole space, using colors to divide the scene and find order in colors. Look for the motion rule in the stitching and overlapping of materials.
The original skylight of the arch structure of the gymnasium is still retained, but in order to prevent the influence of uncontrollable natural light on sports, a transparent film is installed on the inside of the glass, which not only guarantees the natural lighting but also takes care of the needs of badminton.
The supporting spaces such as the gymnasium's bathroom locker room continue the strong contrast between red and gray, with a metal mesh custom bathroom partition and mirror box jumping in the space. The pendant lights of the bare roof are also installed on red brackets, adding a dynamic line to the dark gray bare roof.
At the beginning, we started from the runway and used its extended tension as the concept creation. When finished, it also carried the spiritual idea conveyed by the whole three-story space. We hoped that the color could awaken the spirit of the playground and conceive the possible scenes in the site, so as to use these building materials. Create space by envisioning how people meet, interact, and respond to the surrounding landscape. Let sports open up the possibilities of the future.
