Marine sports base, Marine navigation sports school, Shen Zhen

Beijing Institute of Architectural Design has shared with us one of their designs – the Marine sports base, Marine navigation sports school Shen Zhen project. It is located at the area of Judiaosha in the Longgang district of Shenzhen, China and it is comprised of two parts. Plot A is the Marine Sports Base while Plot E is the Marine Navigation Sports School. Each of these parts have their own subsections that process the requirements for each building.

The total construction area of the whole project is only 27180m2, but the function is numerous and the ground level of the site is highly variable. For this, we put forward the design principle of “minimum the effect to the environment”. Through the site analysis, we divided buildings into many small parts combined with functional partition, and arranged the buildings along the harbour and mountain, and ensure the buildings all can have a good view of the landscape and good ventilated condition and  good day lighting. At the same time, the water design of water tank and the floating pier are used to minimize the impact of the natural environment in the basin. Artificial architectural forms integrate into the site environment in a natural way, forming a rhythmic building ecological community.

Weaken the influence of architecture

“Weaken the influence of architecture”, lower the artificial position in architectural forms and abandon the pure-form language. Meanwhile, weaken the peculiarity of single building to unify the scattered architectural monomer by simple logic and gather parts into a whole; protrude community relations of buildings, so that the architectural monomer is hidden in the overall environment.

Make a scientific arrangement

“Make a scientific arrangement”, on the basis of in-depth site analysis and in terms of the technological requirements, orderly configurate building group in the nature. According to local conditions, the architectural monomer is fully fit the surrounding terrain and the environment, thus naturally showing the well-proportioned architectural image which is distinct both vertically and horizontally. Finally, in combining with the size and functional features of the constructions, cleverly arrange each single building so that the entire architectural group organically and perfectly blends into the background of mountains, sea and sky silhouette.

Four Innovations and Four Saving Measures

“Four Innovations and Four Saving Measures”- the response of sustainable development

“Energy conservation and sustainable development” is the strategic planning for the development of “environment-friendly and resource-conserving society” and the promotion and application of “Four Innovations and Four Saving Measures” construction technology is also the positive response of sustainable development. After careful planning, the project effectively uses some new technologies, new materials and energy-saving measures.

1.Four innovations

Since in hydraulic aspect we use the first self-designed large-volume reinforced concrete pontoon (thin-walled high-performance concrete floating body) technology in China, compared to ordinary steel floating dock, the dock has advantages of strong ability of resisting wind and waves, good stability, non pollution and low cost, and also eliminating blocks from sight by integrating dock basin into the shore area; in geotechnical aspect we use bent pile anti-slide technology (the front and back row of bent pile are connected by connecting plate to improve the overall stiffness and skid resistance) and slab-pile wall technology (the built-in part uses a round pile and the free end a square one, transforming pile type up and down through contacting beam to improve the speed and safety).

2.Four Saving Measures

As to equipment, we use solar collection and air source heat pump combined heating measures; In electricity, we use digital dimming and high and low voltage power loop monitoring technology to have good performance in energy-saving, electricity-saving aspects. The project also extensively uses environment friendly building materials, such as permeable bricks, eco plastic wood, aluminum honeycomb panels to achieve the purpose of material-saving and energy consumption reduction.
