Sustainable Ecological Park
At the beginning of the project development, it was a place where soil was piled up in the region, and the ecological environment was relatively poor. According to the needs of conventional park construction, it needs to be comprehensively leveled to be built. Based on the consideration of leisure complex, and to make the best use of the situation, the designer transferred the soil piles into mountains, build the pits into lakes, and take advantage of the surrounded meandering roads to realize the construction according to local conditions, presents a pleasant leisure landscape environment, and reduces the cost of leveling and restoration.

It is quite difficult to maintain the green plants in northern China as the winter is very cold. So at the beginning of the design, the designer borrowed the traditional Chinese abstract freehand brushwork to create the artistic conception of the space in a minimalist way, using different waterscape to create elegant landscape. At the same time, through the scattered buildings, the way of borrowing scenery with the scenery windows, and different gray spaces, the designer successfully presents the aesthetic feeling of different scenes, so as to meet the aesthetic feeling of the northern garden for the human landscape.

The project uses a large number of steel plate building materials to show the sense of lightness and elegance, while the white umbrella style roof can collect rainwater and store it in the filter tank as the supply of ground landscape water, so as to realize the recycling and ecological use of waterscape. The glass curtain wall shows the transparent and open state of the project while the double-layer energy-saving system is adopted to realize the two-way system of internal circulation and external circulation. The greenhouse effect is formed between the double-layer glass, in summer, the superheated air in the greenhouse is discharged from the outside, while in winter, the solar heat energy is introduced into the room, saving a lot of energy for winter and summer.

Model of Healing Office
The traditional centralized industrial park is characterized by intensive factory building space, the tense and monotonous working environment of workers can easily lead to mental stress and diseases, as well as different social group problems. Weihai Zhongguancun leisure complex, based on the proposal of Shenzhen planning for the value orientation change of phase II project, introduces the purpose and functional requirements of humanistic care for employees, and presents a leisure complex center with low building density to create a place for employees to relieve their mental pressure, so as to let the daily mechanized assembly line backlog of emotions to be relieved through the space.

The project is completely open to the outside world in the form of a park to convey the brand image of the enterprise focusing on humanity and social responsibility. At the same time, it has led to the change of the whole area planning. As the demonstration project of the local industrial development zone, it guides the relevant departments to approve the design scheme of the surrounding parks, as well as limits the entry of some manufacturing pollution enterprises, so as to enhance the image of the whole industrial development zone.
