Changchun German Experts Community Masterplan
TALENT INDUSTRY PARK
Changchun Automobile Economic & Technological Development Zone is not only a provincial, but a national development zone approved by the State Council.
In recent years, as the construction of the “Car-City” continued, municipal facilities and environment have been continuously improved.
Consequently, improving people’s livelihood in all aspects, in the Automobile Economic & Technological Development Zone, was the primary development goal during the planning phases, with strong references to the underlying vision of the development zone.
The Talent Industrial Park is located in the core area of the Automobile Economic & Technological Development Zone. The planned total land area is about 47 ha and the total construction area is about 940,000 square meters.
1,000 international expert apartments will be built in the area creating an international, high-level ecological community integrating residential areas of different densities, a five-star hotel, a customized business town, an international school, international clinics, and international supermarkets.
Parts of the Apartments and community services will serve foreign experts in China First Automobile Works Co., Ltd. (FAW).
ARCHITECTURE AND LANDSCAPE
Residential product whose target group are foreign experts transport not only a brand-new impression that is quite different from local residences, but also a condensed impression of international life.
The architectural facade design of the International Expert Apartments is based on solid and atmospheric natural stone material, with elegant stone-cutting features and metal inlays to outline the exquisite details; local wood panels are used to balance the stone and metal. Air conditioners are carefully integrated to minimize negative visual and acoustic impact.
An interconnected green space system is implemented, containing decentralized fitness- and communication-spaces for all ages. The residential area is car-free, underground parking entrances and rubbish waste collection are located at its perimeters.
The different leisure functions are centered in themed gardens and courtyards which are embedded in a continuous, barrier-free green system, connecting to the car park in its proximity.
Diverse plantings and climate trees, able to withstand the cold winter temperatures in the Changchun climate zone foster healthy and recreational life styles.
Young families from Germany will stay in China, invited by FAW Group, and should have the opportunity to life in a foreign environment for several years.
The interior design uses this as a story chain to explore the typical characteristics of modern German home environment and create a neat, cozy, humane and warm space.
“Simplicity, pragmatism, cleanliness, high quality…” are the key words characterizing some German peculiarities. As a result, the interior design team has set a modern and simple style tone for the indoor living space, pursuing richness and showing elegance in simplicity.
The design elements, colors, and raw materials have been simplified to a certain point, whereas the requirements for the texture of the materials are not compromised.
A living room that is convenient for sitting and reading, an open kitchen for daily communication needs of the family, a dining table where you can eat, work, and play… all these characteristics help that German families can continue their lifestyles, enjoy comfort in their new home in China, and relax.
