Play of Lights, Xixi Artist Clubhouse by AZL in Hangzhou (China)

Laid out like tree branches in the Xixi National Wetland Park in Hangzhou – in Zhejiang province, eastern China –, the Xixi Artist Clubhouse was designed as a small village community by Zhang Lei, of the Nanjing-based office AZL Architects. Comprising five similar buildings, each with a floor area of 800 square meters, the entire complex follows a modular pattern. Each building offers living accommodations and studios for artists and designers in a central volume six meters tall, two-story and concrete-structured, with two branched arms protruding from it, single-level and steel-framed; all in accordance with a Y-shaped modular floor plan. The translucent white polycarbonate panels of the enclosures create an interior of diffused light, and at night a play of lights seeming to float in the horizon.
