This project is located in Changyang, Fangshan District, a suburb of Beijing. Many of the local residents are young people who work in downtown. Compared to the inner city, suburban areas such as this lack a variety of amenities. As the interface between the residential quarter and its surroundings, this community building is key in ameliorating the area.

Generally, strip-type is the common form of ground commercial building, but it lacks of flexibility. Our design intends to make a cluster of low-rise buildings with different heights, which forms terraces, creating a leisure and recreational atmosphere.

The project has been turned into a chance to improve the area surrounding this suburban residential quarter. And as a model of clustered community building, the design could also be duplicated and further developed.
