Tangma Village is located in Bieqiao Town, northwest of Liyang City, which is an idyllic village in the planning and layout. The village is located in the north of the village near the fourth largest reservoir in Liyang-Tangma Reservoir. It is located in the one-hour commuter circle of Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui, and has obvious location advantages.
The site of the project was originally Tangma Primary School, but now it has been changed to Tangma Village Committee, which is close to the main road of the village. at the same time, as a growing village portal space, it plays an extremely important role in the overall image of the village. how to create a community center that can not only meet the needs of the local people but also serve as the business card of the village is a challenge for the design.
We hope to create a group of buildings that blend with the buildings of the 1970s and 1980s in the local village and have a certain sense of strangeness at the same time. By retaining some of the buildings in the original site and adding a group of new buildings to combine the new and the old to form an organic whole.
The casual and unexpected way of construction in rural architecture gives us a lot of inspiration, and the straightforward aesthetics it brings is what we hope to reflect in this group of buildings. For example, in the western facade, we treat the originally insipid architectural facade into a whole with changes in height, distance, emptiness and reality, while the internal space and function also unfold with the change of the facade.
The project is located in the Yangtze River Delta region, where the traditional Chinese literati garden is born, and the thinking of the garden is naturally integrated into the conception of the project.
We hope that this project will respond to the traditional pastoral life style with contemporary architectural language, and the newly added functions will be integrated through the logic of the garden, making the overall spatial relationship more pleasant, at the same time, it also responds to the spiritual needs of people to fall in love with the landscape and reside in the countryside. On the basis of the placement function, we lengthen the streamline, line of sight and time of the tour through the turning point and progress of the space, and the setting of a large number of corridors and gray space, which also makes the relationship between architecture and architecture, architecture and courtyard become ambiguous.
There is beautiful natural scenery around Tangma Village. Most of the houses in the village are small houses with two-story sloping roofs built after the founding of the people's Republic of China. The form is simple, the facade is mostly white, and is decorated with a small amount of mosaics and tiles. The village also retains many traditional dwellings in good condition, with beautiful shapes and staggered roofs. This form is universal in the local area, we hope to take this as the prototype, combine the garden elements with the roof form of the local village, and reconstruct the rural public space with contemporary methods.
As a key transformation village in the pilot project of rural revitalization, to be able to land a public building of such a mass, it is often necessary to maximize its effectiveness and have compound functions at the same time. These functions should not only meet the display and publicity function of the "Rural Revitalization College", but also be a part of the daily production and life of the villagers. At the same time, as an exhibition point of the Rural Revitalization College, it needs to meet the functions of daily preaching, teaching, literary and artistic activities, so we use the existing buildings and the newly added mass to create an auditorium-like space, in order to meet the needs of exhibitions and meetings, we also designed a separate space to form an encirclement with the courtyard.
In order to meet the daily life of the people in the village, it also carries the functions of red and white wedding, canteen for the elderly, village committee office, agricultural products sales and so on. Different functional spaces are connected in the way of gardens to form a whole. People walk and turn in different functional spaces and experience different kinds of rural aesthetics. Explore the specific spatial order of landscape architecture in the countryside, integrate the internal needs of architecture with the external environment, and become the common carrier of both, so as to create a place for rural community activities that is compatible with social publicity and nature, and has both cohesion and openness.
