Project Name: Shanxi Yuncheng Center 
Location: Yuncheng, Shanxi, China
Site Area: 225 128 sqm (East Parcel: 6490 sqm; West Parcel: 44 423 sqm; Phase II: 174 215 sqm)
Client: Shanxi Haolin Real Estate Development Ltd.
The design orientation for this project is to create a regional complex close to the urban center. There are different functional spaces including residences, apartments, retail space, a shopping center, bars, restaurants and hotels. In phase II, the design of the commercial street is continued, in the meantime, functions such as residence, apartments and offices are added to form a planning layout where commercial space and apartments serve as an outer ring and residential buildings serve as the center.
Functional Partitioning
This project is divided into east and west parts. The east side of Phase I is occupied by apartment buildings whose basements serve as retail space or underground garages, while the west district provides functions such as offices, commercial space, a commercial street and residences, Phase II is also distributed in the west district with the functions of commerce, residence and apartments.
Spatial Organization
Phase I is divided into east and west parcels. In the eastern parcel, a modern U-shaped apartment building is  designed with a commercial function distributed at the bottom, together with a park located at the north, creating an eastern landmark. In the west parcel, the commercial street is distributed at the northeast corner, serving as a highlight to enhance the commercial value of the south and west sides. The curved office building built above the shopping center located on the south and the apartment building located on the east form the landmarks of Renmin Road. Phase II has the same spatial organization, and adds commerce, offices, and hotel and apartment functions on its outer ring. Both the core aims of Phase I and Phase II are to create a high-quality pure residential community, forming a spatial organization achieving the theory of dynamic and static combination.
Circulation Design
Peripheral circulation: based on analysis of motor vehicle orientation in the surrounding urban roads; garage entrances and internal ring circulation are reasonably arranged to reduce impact on other sites and enhance the efficiency of connectivity with urban roads.
Internal circulation: deals with the relationship between traffic, logistics and pedestrians, so as to achieve efficient motor circulation, safe pedestrian circulation and unobstructed logistics circulation. For motor circulation, the lane for fire-fighting should be designed, and parking problems for motor vehicles and non-motor vehicles should be managed. The pedestrian circulation in catering, high-quality commercial, leisure and residential spaces should be well-organized, achieving easily accessible and reasonable space partition.
