THE GREAT MOGUL
Located in Xiameilin, Futian District, Shenzhen, THE GREAT MOGUL is a project co-developedby two giants of China’s real estate industry-Wongtee and Shimao, who aim to create a new landmark in Shenzhen.
However, the existing effect of the project is not proper enough to match with the current positioning and target of development. In addition, the rigid zoning and disorderly streamlines are obvious weakness of the existing planning. Therefore, both the partners agree to “try something new”.
The existing planning focuses only on renovation of the entrance and atrium. For arenovation project, that’s nothing more than changing a coat. The site should be pumped into vigor of rebirth.
▼老城区现状图 Current View
Xiameilin was once an old town filled with dilapidated buildings and commercial facilities in chaos. The designers shake off the limitation of the site and seek for new vitality based on the city interface and with consideration of the surroundings.
▼项目独特区位 The Unique Geographic Advantages
Via a chrono-cross treasure hunting journey, THE GREAT MOGUL aims to breathe new life into the colorless old streetsand rejuvenate them with a new look.LUXURY BRANDS GET TOGETHER

The constructionshed at the original entrance is the first interface between the project andthe city. Currently, it has fallen into ruin with crude hoardings. Therefore,the first stop of the treasure hunting journey is to renovate the constructionshed at the entrance.
▼时光隧道现状图 Current View
Drawing on the experience of the pure façade used in the flagship stores of luxury brands, the designers make the entrance stand out of the surrounding chaos and create a time channel which helps to change the guests’ state of mind as they going forward.
The Time Channel becomes the new front façade of the vehicle entrance on one hand, and makes thechrono-cross treasure hunting journey more fantasy on the other.
When you drive into the entrance, the ever-changing light and façade create a treasure hunting experience of “a small hole seemingly glittering in front of the mountain” and then “find the view instantly clearing up after going tens of feet more”.
▼展示区功能节点 The Functional Spaces
The site area of THE GREAT MOGUL totals only 10,000 m², while the two high-risings occupy near 5,000 m². Therefore the landscape space is comparatively limited, and only 1,600 m² is left for landscape of internal showarea.
▼平面推导过程 Plane Derivation
Limited by the site conditions, the major entrance and the drop-off area of the original solution curl up at the corners, lacking necessary sense of domain and sufficient show area for marketing. The internal show space is small and enclosed. The streamline runs at one side, while the central area is empty, the recreation area seems stiff. In a word, it is not competent to the center piece of a show area.
▼平面方案对比 Comparation Of The Plan Solutions
Some cosmetic efforts were made previously for the space and the existing space was found going against the unfolding of the streamline and changing of mind. After several discussions between the owner and the designer, both parties decided to carryout a fundamental solution instead of some superficial improvements.

Two adjustments have been made for the major entrance area: first, the entrance of underground parking, the pedestrian entrance and the fire access are integrated into auniformed ritualistic porch, and the entrances parallel to the roads instead ofthe buildings.
Secondly, the streamline no long parallels to the outside roads, but is introduced vertically towards the entrance of coremarketing area.
托举星空缩影的精灵雕塑，为宝藏开启揭开神秘的一角，随着时光的变幻，顶部天光的变迁，每一次归家都是掀开奇幻之旅的面纱。The sculpture of fairies lifting the starry sky discloses a mysterious corner of the treasures. As timegoes by, the light and shade on the ceiling will change accordingly, the dwellers will unveil a dreamy journey everyday as they come home.
「星河澹澹 宝藏秘境」▼星光大道草图 Sketch Of The Star Avenue
星光大道的设计是皇庭项目设计中最为浓墨重彩的一笔，也是这场时空之旅中最有魔力的地方。原有场地，水景小气居于中心，廊架流线偏于一侧，广场空旷无亮点，星光大道的设立，重塑流线的同时，塑造了名奢旗舰店主题沉浸式迎宾氛围。Star Avenue is the most impressive design of THE GREAT MOGUL and a space full of magic inthe chrono-cross journey. Originally, the timid waterscape was located at thecenter area, the pergola streamline was set on one side, the square was emptyand lacked vitality. The Star Avenue concept not only reshapes the streamline,but also introduces the theme of luxury brand flagship stores and creates animmersive atmosphere to welcome the visitors. ▼星光大道现状图 Current View Of The Star Avenue
A splendid avenuegoes through the entire garden, the galaxy waterfalls on both sides make visitors feel like being in the brilliant Milky Way.
When night falls,the starry sky lights up and is reflected in the water, the sparkling dropping water echoes with the sky. When visitors step on the dreamy land of Star Avenue,it seems like they are walking through the splended galaxy.
The original elevating structure adopted rigid pavement throughout. Our designers setwave-shaped flower pool at the edge space beyond the reach of light and obscurethe hard borders with protruding-retracting gradually changing methods. While solving the problem of empty site and small-scaled waterscape, the transition aldesigns from galaxy water fall to stack-up greening also draw the pergola closerto the garden and create an integrated Starry Sky Garden.
On-site pool concreting on 5F roof, the pergola structure and wall grid construction, followed by the curtain wall façade structure construction, were completed previously. While the overall effect featured disorderly and rigid. The target of the regeneration is to upgrade the functions and quality based on the original structures.
在无法做大调整的情况下，设计师对保留与拆除做出了择选。研究对应架空层区域的功能特征，分别设置了：室外卡座区、按摩躺椅区、酒吧室外休闲、泳池泡池、儿童海洋球池等作为泳池区域功能升级，打造会所级酒吧泳池体验。Seeing thatlarge-scaled adjustment is unavailable, our designers made their decision aboutwhich part to be demolished and which part to be retained. As to function upgrade of the swimming pool area, the designers set outdoor seating area,massage couch area, bar and outdoor recreation area, swimming pool, bath poolsand marine ball pool for kids after studying the functions of the stilt floor. The upgraded facilities impress the users with club-level bar and swimming pool experience.
泳池空间与室内酒吧空间充分结合，成为未来会所KTV、酒吧的Party活动空间，打造豪宅Party活动样板，也树立了豪宅俱乐部式会所标杆，酒店花园出户即达，悠闲舒适触手可及，让每一位游者体验艺术酒店里的名奢生活品质。The perfect integration of swimming pool and indoor bar will be a new windvane for design of the Party space of clubs, KTVs and bars as well as the Partyspace of high-end residential spaces in the future. In addition, the projectsets the benchmark of mansion club with instantly available outdoor garden andleisure time. Every guest will be able to experience the luxurious life in anartistic hotel.
