Matrix Design has designed Crown Land in Chengdu, China.
This project was based on the particularity of the site, where the design team started from the perspective of a cultural library.
Combined with the different functions of the library, art exhibition hall, and community life experience hall, Crown Land is realised through the integration and multi-purpose of the building. The space takes the Greco-Roman architectural form as the frame of reference.
Through the cutting and combination of symmetry, axis, proportion and other methods in the space, it forms a sense of order rich in classical style, creates a sense of ritual of college style, and maintains the unity from the inside to the outside.
The extensive use of arched structures reveals a fully-open gallery on one side. When visitors walk into it and pass through the arched spaces of different spans, their spatial perception is rich and quietly changing to create a highly-recognisable space.
