Led by architecture firm X+Living, the Hospitality Design of the Hangzhou Star Avenue Mall drew inspiration from the abstraction of scene modes, which focused on the coordinated integration of colours and composition rather than style interpretation. Design Contract brings to you all the top highlights os the cutting edge family park at Hangzhou.
Following the success of the first Neobio Family Park in Shanghai, architecture firm X+Living now completed its successor at Hangzhou Star Avenue Mall and since the family park is located at the riverside, designers drew inspirations from natural views in the composition of the hospitality design.
Based on the original layout of the shopping mall, Hangzhou Neobio Family Park, a multivenue wonderland in a mall atrium, and Spaces on Wheels, was divided into four major functional areas, each with multiple accessory spaces.
When we look into this mesmerizing hospitality design project we can understand why these concepts have vital lessons about the purpose, layout, proportion, tonality and function of the hotel and restaurant spaces of tomorrow.
Xiang Li, chief designer of architecture firm X+LIVING making the division of the major functional areas according to with age groups, interests and behaviours of kids, while at the same time combining functions for entertainment, education and rest during parent-child activities.
The hospitality design main focus was to maintain a reasonable circulation in the space and make a comprehensive family park that integrates entertainment and education activities. The functional areas have diverse purposes, therefore, each area required an individual solution of the architecture firm.
The major areas include a library, private event spaces, a bakery classroom (where families can bake together), a Sims City for children to explore, and a miniature house Amusement Area.
Comprehensive area for rest, dining and entertainment. The mushroom-cap-like elements in Family Park’s eating area dominate the three-story space, giving them built-in gravitas. The atrium of the shopping mall is full of contrasts in textures, bold shapes and carefully considered light and shadow that gives an adult drama to an innocent palette.
In the library, the main hospitality design inspirations were the relationship between rainbow and clouds, making an abstracted composition so that structures designed in this area can serve as bookshelves and at the same time allow kids to enjoy climbing and going through holes.
Besides all that it’s very necessary to highlight the furniture and lamps that the architecture firm used in the space. All the furniture and lamps were specially designed and processed for the project, which ensured all the structures and colours were perfectly matched.
With gorgeous finishes, head-turning focal points and fantastic narratives from virtually every chronological or cultural reference point imaginable the newly launched Neobio Family Park in Hangzhou is not only a combination of functions and aesthetics but more importantly an experimental hospitality design that explores the layout of shopping malls in the future.
