The club is positioned on the banks of the historic Grand Canal, which is the world's oldest and longest man-made canal. It stands on the east line of Tiananmen Square in Tongzhou, east of Beijing. Follow the traditional way of old Beijing courtyard, the club space is designed into courtyard also. But courtyards today is different from the traditional ones: the density of contemporary urban does not allow buildings lying horizontally. So the courtyard spaces should be developed vertically. Finally the club is divided into 12 courtyards which stack with each other and stay as a ring in which there is a centre courtyard. The stack of these courtyards forms a few spaces of different quality, this kind of changes can be seemed as the change of the traditional corridor. When people stay here, they can not only enjoy the nice service, but also touch the nature everywhere.
We give 4 kinds of facades to the 12 courtyards. Concrete blocks, Red cedar panels, Aluminum panels, Glass wall. All the materials are designed by the idea of WEAVE. So people can feel better beside the material.
