2019 WIN Awards: Joy City · Parkside · Herstory Art Zone - RoarcRenew is an entry in the Cultural venues category at the 2019 World Interiors News Awards.
The assignment for RoarcRenew was to design a shared living-room under a 10-m high ceiling inside a shopping mall.
The theme of the mall was for a hostess experience space. Now it’s a complex functioning space, an amusement park and a living-room for the shopping mall and a stage for parent-child performance. The edge of the original floor has been “softened” and the edge facade forms a welcoming curve. It provides a place for seeing the "butterfly" space. The new elliptical staircase connecting the vertical traffic of 4th and 5th floors provides an important channel and a main visual image for the whole field. The membrane structure of curvature of the skeleton is the pictographic definition of the term female. The sage Chuangzi is day-dreaming, bewitched by butterflies, which in this context are women. The membrane structure is rendered by different color levels of lighting and confirms the mystery and "illusion of women". In terms of function, the landing steel structure of curve effectively replaces the wall partition due to different functions, and the soft space language is liberated by "lighting" and “curves". The membrane functions as a good thermal insulation and is the regulator of the indoor microclimate. RoarcRenew spent six months studying the necessity of putting the membrane structure indoor, construction, building order, joint connection, lighting coordination, structural load, etc and the soft "skin feeling" derived from the membrane’s materials form a special media carrier.
