Gross Built Area 5000m2
Enshi Grand Canyon is a 4A scenic area under the administration of Hubei Tourism Group. In recent years, the number of tourists has been increasing rapidly. In order to increase the capacity of the scenic area and optimize the traffic pattern of the scenic area, we were invited to design the visitor center of its Daughter Lake.
The new visitor center is connected to the ground cable car on the left, which can quickly reach the geosuture and canyon scenic spot. And the air cable car on the right, which can take visitors to the Daughter Lake Ski Resort 6km away.
There is often a contradiction between the external scale and the number of internal floors in the tourist distribution center. As a building in the natural landscape, it will not have a significant visual image in terms of volume if it is built on one floor. And it will occupy too much space due to the horizontal expansion of the building. If the two floors are simple, the facade may be messy and trivial. Our idea is to create a large box with a slight oriental architectural image, combining hardness and softness, and varying height, to form an overall visual image on the outside and a vertical division on the inside. The ground floor is completely opened, forming a tourist reception hall of more than 2000 m2. On the second floor, there are corridors and internal offices, all of which are suspended in the air by the steel structure. This not only enriches the space, but also solves management problems of the internal and external partition.
