In Sichuan Province, there are two cities famous for their wine, one is Yibin called capital of wine, the other is Luzhou known as city of wine, which, as an important traffic artery of Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou Province, is the intersection of the Yangtze River and the Tuojiang River with numerous commercial ports. Winemaking is of great significance for Luzhou people, who connect themselves with wine inextricably generation after generation, thus making the city immersed in sweet fragrance of wine. Located in the intersection of Shulu Avenue and Longma Avenue in Longmatan District, Luzhou City, the hotel enjoys convenient transportation and is close to the international conference center, commercial office building and shopping center, making itself an ideal place for business and leisure travelers. ADD accepted a commission and was in charge of the interior design of ADD accepted a commission and was in charge of the interior design of Aoxin Holiday Hotel in June 2018, which is inspired by the wine hiding cave in Luzhou, a place that evokes a strong desire to explore. With this project we try to find the existing connection with all the nature of the substance in a deeper level such as texture and emotion. Also we try to understand the temperament of the project through the combination of various elements, not only through our vision, but also through all of the senses.
In "Endless Talk," Brownshaw wrote, "What you desire to use the name of philosophy to imply - is essentially a perception of the unknown, or more generally a relationship with the unknown."
ADDDESIGN accepted a commission and was in charge of the interior design of Aoxin Holiday Hotel in June 2018, which is inspired by the wine hiding cave in Luzhou, a place that evokes a strong desire to explore.
The mysterious natural cave arouses curiosity. The stones penetrate both inner and outer space, and the cracking gap, extended from the canyon, is like a gully on the rock wall, which creates a novel experience of walking from the cave to the canyon. At the end of the known and the unknown, it is the perception that lies in the middle.
The inner wall of the cave is in the shape of multi-dimensional curved surface that gradually shrinks from bottom to top. In the process of mosaic paving, mosaic regular stitching is squeezed caused by the shrinkage of the curved surface area. The designer increased the number of segments horizontally with the method of retaining deformation joint to shape the multi-dimensional surface and set the starting point for each segment separately, forming a dynamic order in which the law and freedom coexist.
The lobby is a reconstruction of natural cave amongst which places a series of unconnected hollow stones. The unknown and unpredictable space inside the stones is released by excavating the holes, thus forming a relatively private and semi-invisible surroundings, which creates a continuous experience of opening and enclosing through the interior of the stone and the gap between the stone.
The stones of the same mine are processed differently to form such three kinds of surface textures as drawing texture, 30% matte and 60% matte. Due to the difference of light reflection of different interfaces, the shades of the same façade are different, enriching spatial expression without undermining overall purity.
In the light environment full of metaphorical meaning of Convent of La Tourette and La Chapelle de Ronchamp, the architect Le Corbusier aims to give modern people tranquility and peace they need most: some purified, ethereal atmosphere is created when the sun shots in, whose effect evokes an expressive trait that pours out in dark environment.
The sense of security brought by the enclosed space stimulates the desire for communication, among which the dynamic connection between emotion and space is perceived. The wine is performed as a clue to create a medium to convey beauty, emotion and consciousness by Luzhou's wine culture. The medium is equivalent to the art itself.
The screens limited by the "fuzzy interface" divide the spatial functions, involving in as a light volume to establish a connection between people, environment, architecture and atmosphere. The appropriate "ablation" hides the rest area a little, restraining the relationship between openness and introversion.
The interface between space and space is blurred, making it separated and infiltrated, and the interface disappears in the process of generation, bringing a literary sensation. The design disintegrates and fuses the interior and exterior of the space, allowing space and time to be continuously and peacefully viewed.
After the tone of the atmosphere is determined, the basic outline of the space is gradually clarified: the atmosphere created by the hotel is not spring of brightness, but another kind of hazy, mystery and massive beauty.
It is a physical process of development from design to implement, revealing the visual texture and symbolic context of the space one by one.
Based on the multi-dimensional thinking in the real world, hard and soft, delicate and rough, cold and warm, freedom and order, the design trys to seek unity in contradiction, consensus in conflict and describe the balance between substance and consciousness with the use of material texture and construction process.
The hotel recreates nature by natural stone and establishes a basic interface for the whole space, whose novel environment will generate experience in the form of memory recombination while evoking memory, thus making the relationship between people and space, space and space independent and interinfiltrated. These visual connections extend the concept of cave and local urban texture to the interior of the hotel, forming a unique cultural carrier in Luzhou.
The hotel is more restrained in the use of material, each kind of which points to a unique spatial relationship and corresponding emotion. The connection and blending of different material shapes the space and at the same time is influenced by space, thus leaving some hint of spiritual significance.
