The Courier Station is located in the Wenjiang District, adjacent to the greenway, where the natural landscape and Linpan attract lots of tourists. Being part of the rural revitalization project, the courier station aims to provide a resting place for tourists, as well as a public social area for the local residents. The design abstracts the form of a traditional Sichuan veranda and reinterprets it with contemporary aesthetics. It is defined as an iconic building and a multi-functional communal space to explore flexibility and diversification of architectural space combination.
MUDA-Architects sets the scales and dimensions on the site according to the design brief. The core area is then moved to one side of the block so that the double-height semi-enclosed space could be generated with the inspiration of a traditional Sichuan veranda. It meets the interior light demands, highlights local characteristics, and deals with the context of the site effectively.
