Lacime Architects designs contemporary leisure centre

Feb 11, 2019

Around a series of classical Chinese gardens to create serene outdoor circulation areas, Lacime Architects has reportedly worked on the layout of Shimao Longyin Leisure Centre in China. The studio is designed in a contemporary format with Suzhou's traditional architecture. The landscaping is representing the region's rich heritage of classical Chinese garden design. Combine with inner space and landscape, the centre has three main courtyards arranged with large entrance gates that open onto a paved outdoor space with a circular pond at the centre. Its halls feature sweeping roofs of varying heights and proportions. These roofs are covered with tiles. While the majority of the facades are simply clad in white stone or metal panels, the elevations surrounding a central pool are fully glazed to ensure the internal spaces receive adequate daylight.
