Utopia represents the most beautiful society in human ideology.
“Utopia” originated from the book “Utopia” written by Thomas Moore, and can include the beautiful visions of religions or the world such as heaven, Eden, and Xanadu. Human beings have never stopped pursuing perfection and freedom.
The Eight Immortals cross the sea here, and the misty fairyland has come to dream.
Penglai is located in the northeast of Shandong Province and the north of Yantai City, bordering the Yellow Sea and the Bohai Sea to the north. It is a fascinating land full of myths and legends for thousands of years. It is a modern coastal city that has risen rapidly in northern China. Its unique charm attracts many guests from home and abroad. Penglai has always been associated with the fairyland. Whether it is Qin Shihuang’s prayer for longevity, or the eight immortals crossing the sea, or even Penglai’s fairyland, all of them conform to all imaginations of fantasy, which can be said to be an oriental “utopia”.
The site is located on the north side of Penglai, surrounded by mountains and seas, with convenient transportation. Small hidden in the wild, big hidden in the city, accompanied by the city and forest, wild and graceful. LONGFOR created the “Yanlan” series of peerless works. It chose an out-of-print mountain and sea resort, overlooking the mountains and the sea, and overlooking Penglai, presenting the ultimate beauty of the paradise on earth, striving to become a generation story of Penglai’s high-quality human settlements.
Hippodamus’ Utopia not only outlines roads and houses, he believes that when considering the shape of the city, one can also consider social life. The project is based on Penglai’s unique charm, capturing Penglai’s ancient aura and post-modern romance and freedom, and giving the space a majestic and atmospheric intuitive feeling. The design team extracted the elements of the building block, the beauty of the symmetrical world, the distinctive classical arch, and the beauty of order. Strolling in the space is like wandering under the arched corridor of a city street, feeling the constant breeze.
The arcades described by Baudelaire appeared in front of him: “The gas lights are on. The lamplighters pass through the passages of the Arch Street crowded with buildings and the nocturnal crowds, lighting up the dark and obscure street lights. The glass top, Passages on the marble floor, luxurious merchandise displays, casinos, glass windows…the faces of the crowd appear ghostly. They are anxious, at a loss, and similar to each other, so crowded that there is no gap in dreams.”
The top surface of the lobby is extracted from the elements of the Italian vault, using modern techniques, and the expression technique of the golden stainless steel grille, showing the Italian form of modern art. The wall uses coral stone to blend with the seaside natural environment, and the background wall stone metal partition borrows the “Mondrian” composition combined with the luminous marble of the reception desk and the special metal “bundling”, bringing artistic luxury to the modern space Atmosphere. The opposite art installation sculpture table uses the abstract form of shells. The crystal bubbles in the air are like waves in the water, layered on top of each other, romantic and free.
The top surface of the sandpan area is still an extraction of the Italian vault. Use volume extraction and orderly arrangement to give the sand table area a sense of momentum. The layers of vaults on the top surface render the atmosphere of the ceiling through the use of light strips on both sides. The coral stone on the wall uses grooves, concave-convex advances and retreats, and metal lines to reflect the details in the overall sense, highlighting the momentum of the sunken sand table and the regionality of the mountain. The chandelier is concise and full of power.
The original ceiling is a structural beam, now it is improved to an arched design, which covers the rigidity and depression of the original structure, and to a certain extent makes the space play an extended visual effect.
The bottom of the sunken bar is like pearls, and the light band at the bottom is modern and luxurious. The arched arrangement of the top surface array highlights the modern and classic Italian style, and the large metal top surfaces on both sides are refined. The combination of luxury and natural simplicity in the space, the collision of modernity and classicism has become a highlight in the space.
A pearl is a hard, glistening object produced within the soft tissue.
The combination of the grille on the top surface of the bathroom and the linear lamp simulates the feeling of sky light, giving people a relaxed and natural feeling. The arc top above the sink echoes the vault of the foyer. The texture of metal is matched with the overall marble countertop of Lauren King, emphasizing the sense of luxury. The large mirror in the background extends the space.
With the rhyme of Penglai, create a home of abundance, with a blend of cultural heritage, nourish the contemporary human settlement life that mirrors the landscape and the humanities. Every time LONGFOR takes root in a piece of land, it will definitely explore the local history and humanities in depth. The entry into Penglai for the millennium this time is to trace the history of the fairyland with heart, and once again give a new opportunity to the flourishing development of the city.
