The street of 1000 red jars

The Former French Concession has long put its stamp on this part of Shanghai, and it’s obviously an honour for a French architect to design an urban space here in tune with its urbanism, its plane trees, narrow streets and inhabited landscapes. Between Ma Dang and Dan Shui streets, it was tempting to create a shortcut that would be an urban and commercial passageway, a sequence evoking vanished surroundings that have been completely reimagined and are new and modern; a high, narrow street that’s covered and protected… The buildings need to know where they reside so as to create a desire for unique and unpredictable walks. Being open, our project fits into the quarter’s geometry. The exterior, in a greyish-beige colour, offers glimpses through the two entrances on Ma Dang and Dan Shui streets, of a surprising array of lights, colours and vegetation. A shopping street on two levels, sequenced by overhead walkways and small bridges, is submerged between two flowery walls made up of rows of earthernware jars planted with different species, both green and coloured. The complementarity between the shops facing each other, the activities of the offices and the restaurants up under the roofs, creates a familiar and naturally animated street, setting pleasing walks as a target and offering an inviting new itinerary between Ma Dang and Dan Shui streets. Shadowplays produced by the adjustible slats of the blinds, in front of windows bordered by huge flowerpots, play on the mystery of presences and activities thereby protected, while inventing a landscape of vegetal friezes in the colours of the season and of the different flowers. The walls of the passageway will be painted in variations of brown, amber, orange and multiple reds. I’ve imagined all these loving details to enrich Shanghai, on the Huai Hai side, with this unique new open-and-covered street: ‘the street of 1000 red jars’.

一座景观的建筑

 

淮海路项目是城市的一部分,不论从体量感还是对通透性的运用上,都是对石库门建筑的当代诠释,是融汇东西方建筑风格的上海里弄精神的延续。在法租界核心、也是上海的中心建造当代办公体,意味着需要设计一个充分体现当地精神的场所、一个既符合邻里需求又满足未来使用者期望的建筑。

场所精神应是人性化的街道尺度,人们在这里能感受到上海独特的、充满活力的脉搏。草木和鲜花在每个可能的角落里生长。淮海路项目由两栋建筑组成,一条全新的街道贯穿其间。如瀑布般层层迭迭、半开半合的屋顶为街道提供遮护、抵挡烈日和风雨,也给法租界的传统坡屋顶建筑注入现代活力。街道远离喧嚣,以店铺、公共空间、咖啡馆和餐厅为在此居住、办公的人提供日常服务。

在建筑的纵向和横向上,花草、灌木、绿植无处不在,将整座建筑笼罩在一片绿色中,构成水平和垂直的花园。两个植被繁茂的屋顶花园向天空开敞。这些既是提供聚会的公共空间,也为周边居民创造出新的散步沉思的场所。淮海路项目是一座绿色社区,是上海市区中心的一片绿肺。

方案模糊了住宅和办公之间的差别,它不是一个脱离当地环境、没有文化根基的办公场所,而是一个自然融入现有居住环境的设计。它是一座满足使用者需求、融入上海独特城市历史的景观建筑。
