Activity and Service Centre of a Continuing Care Retirement Community - GN (Shanghai) Architecture Design Office Co. Limited is an entry in the Future Project - Mixed Use category at the 2019 World Architecture News Awards.

A dynamic Hub would be built to provide spaces for sports, cultural activities, catering and shopping, etc. GN provides an innovative concept and expects for more openness, diversities and adaptabilities, which would most likely illuminate other projects in the industry of health care.

1. Openness - Dynamic Hub encourages senior citizens to communicate and share time with each other. Moreover, more ambitions are about to achieved when hub is shared as the center of the larger area, which stimulates the vigor of the suburb living.

2. Poetic Coenosium - The main concept consists of three significant points: 22 separately arranged independent boxes, Naturally formed context- low rise with high density, and Flexible space and informal social interaction among the residences.

3. Connectivity - The efficient transportation connections crossing through the different functional boxes make the circulation more like lingering in a” Chinese classical garden”. “Sport Loop” connects all sports facilities, “Hobby Loop” links all spaces for cultural activities and interests. And “Garden Loop” connects the gardens on the ground floor.

4. Adaptability - More adaptabilities are expected from the “Dynamic Hub”, which makes the spatial function more flexible. Therefore, “Neutral Spaces” are particularly needed on the ground floor, including studios and functional glass boxes.

The World Architecture News Awards showcase the best international design in both current and future projects. Entries for the 2019 Awards are now open - for further information and to submit your entry please click here.
