Zhengzhou Senior’s Living Community Project is a design competition for 3,000 new Independent Living Units, Residential Aged Care Facilities, a Clubhouse, and Hospital. The project site is located in the new district of Zhengzhou, China and is located 22km from the district’s CBD.
Our design draws inspiration from the rivers, valleys and mountains of Hunan that surround Zhengzhou and have been the centre of this province’s rich culture for many centuries.
At the centre of the design, the plaza and the river provides terracing which will act as a theatrical space for social gatherings and Yu Opera outdoor performances during spring and autumn, encouraging interaction and involvement with residents and the community.
Individual entrances for the Hospital and Residential Aged Care Buildings provide some differentiation from the clubhouse and ILU Buildings, however these entry points are still ideally located to provide legibility of access and address for each of these facilities.
- The recently completed Sales Centre is pivotal to the sites success
The Gateway Entry to the site is located at the mid-point of the central road. The main arrival point provides a vista between the club house buildings and across the central plaza and “river”. The club house buildings address and overlook the central plaza, providing activation and taking advantage of the views across a highly landscaped and engaging centre point.
