NAN covers a sales center in wenzhou with a geometrical aluminum pattern

located next to the s1 railway technology city station, at the intersection of wenzhou avenue and yongle road, wenzhou, tod international new city sales office is an experimental architecture piece designed by NAN architects. the site is divided into north and south two parts, by the commercial street leading to the railway. aiming to create an organic connection between people and city through porosity, the project adopts the traditional simple box structure.



the large box is divided into three flat boxes and then stacked and staggered to form open terraces, which resolves the heaviness of the large-scale volume. the vertical atrium enhances the permeability of the building, allowing sunlight and air to penetrate inside, making people surrounded by nature. made of gold-brown aluminum plate, the unique façade pattern features the identity of this building — its rhythmic texture created by the change in the width of hexagons not only ensures the integrity of the building but also well fulfills the ventilation and lighting requirement.

on the left side of the sales office, there is a coffee bar for customer leisure. the model exhibition area is located in the atrium of the hall and connected to the second floor. visitors can reach the vip room and offices through stairs or elevators. the terraces provide open spaces for outdoor activities. the third floor space is used as youth activity centers and medical offices, as well as outdoor platforms.
