Back to the Dreamy Capital: Interior design by Mind Design, property developed by Zhengzhou Vanke.
Aesthetics Originating from the Tang Dynasty
The Sales Office of Luoyang Vanke Chunhua Qiushi West Garden First is located in Luoyang, an ancient capital of China. Inspired by traditional oriental culture and the unique aesthetics of the Tang Dynasty, MIND Design combines modern design language to create a ceremonial future lifestyle.
It is the first program developed by Vanke in Luoyang, and also a new exploration jointly by Vanke and the local developer Chunhua Qiushi Real Estate as a city builder.
With a grand high-ceilinged lobby as the entrance, MIND Design incorporates Chinese elements such as tenon-and-mortise into the complex. The wide symmetry of Chinese architecture shocks visitors, and the wood-clad beams of metal structures support the magnificence of the complex. Unique oriental conceptions can be seen everywhere in the space, scattered shadows created by wooden columns and the light through window. With the minimalist-style but luxury wall coverings, the large space has tender tranquility.
Artistic Dialogue of Times and Spaces
From an ancient capital of thirteen dynasties to a modern industrial city, and then to today's industrial upgrading and new-type city, the cultural context of Luoyang has not been shaken, and what has changed is the people’s lifestyle. Guided by the design concept “firework civilization”, MIND Design has created a living scenario in which the past and modernity meet, tradition and new trend coexist. Meanwhile, the sales office has become a new business model.
Vanke joined hands with Yanjiyou Bookstore to create an aesthetic space that integrates social functions. It is the first bookstore as a part of a sales office in Luoyang, and it is also an attempt at a diversified sharing business model. As a transition between the external commercial district and the interior, the book bar adopts a young and fashionable visual style, more in line with the urban aesthetics, which is an innovation of this program.
The negotiation area adopts modern, simplified but luxurious design to create a tranquil environment for the whole. Details, including wooden ceilings, translucent rice paper and dark floors, are still oriental elements, perfectly presenting the unique charm of traditional Chinese cultures.
The combination of wide-area faux stone paint, dark ceilings and floors, together with well-placed green plants, reflects the artistic conceptions of western and the oriental aesthetics, which is not only the addition of two design techniques, but also the chemical reaction of two dimensions.
At the entrance of the staircase leading to the second floor, MIND Design created an indoor micro-landscape. The floor assorted with black matte stone and light stone, together with “Welcome Pine”, is a vivid presentation of Chinese ink painting. An open and bright hall is at the staircase. Large-area wood-clad walls and ceilings docked with white faux stone paint, thus to make the space clean and pure.
Different spaces have different forms and meanings, and for the Luoyang Program, the historical humanities of introspective experience and intuitive feelings in aesthetics and art are the core of the design.
