The project is located in Liming Road, Guandu District, Kunming City, Yunnan Province. Before the renovation, the site was Olive Tree Hot Spring Hotel, which has been abandoned for a long time and surrounding public space for community activities is scarce. Therefore, it becomes particularly precious to build a public activity space in such a typical community. The owner hopes to provide a place for daily basketball entertainment and education and training for the surrounding residents and children. The practice of the design aims to make full use of this vacant space, so as to improve the quality of life of the community residents.
The overall design idea is to show the street and industrial elements, mainly using concrete, metal plate, gradual acrylic, plywood, soft package and other materials, so that the interior space presents a sense of atmosphere of different shades. In order to make the space more identifiable, the bright pink and light strips called "gendered" are introduced to mark and emphasize the key areas of the site. The contrasting colors also give the space a special sense of geometry and power.
The suspended ceiling structure of the abandoned site is built on an integrated reinforced concrete floor slab, with prefabricated reinforced concrete columns forming vertical support structures. The trusses on the roof are uniformly black-sprayed, with a span of 6 meters. Soundproof wall panels of different gray levels are used to fill the space between the columns. The columns are also connected with the suspended ceiling by a soft pink package of sound absorption and anti-collision.
The design uses linear visual elements to connect the three interfaces of the ceiling, the ground and the wall. Within these rectangular areas, there are sports stands, social benches and seating devices for the athletes to rest. The striking "pink matrix" connects the pitch to the environment, visually extending the depth of the space and providing a continuous view.
