Matrix Design has designed Golden Aurora in Guangzhou, China.

This project aims to attract young people to return to the community by creating more logical and sticky products, embedding the theme of "all-age community and ultimate sports".

By addressing the needs of community life for all age groups and continuously activating the vitality of the community, Golden Aurora has built a warm overhead community space, and guided community members to build new neighbourhood relationships through sports and health.

Upgrading community living places and creating new places for future communities is not only closely related to community residents, but also the focus of developers and operators, and naturally, it has become a new area for design units to think about and try out, promoting demand and product iteration together.

The design follows the approximately 9m-high elevated floor in the building body and reshapes the space by using the podium to fully open up the double-story space, structuring the linkage between the two floors – continuously blending, extending and opening up more available public space.

This project has been longlisted in the leisure and wellness interiors category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
