The original building is Tianjin Shipyard with history of one hundred years. It is the milestone in Chinese shipbuilding history and made great contribution to the navigation industry as industry leader of that time. For deep memory of history and respects to the original shipyard, we consider designing this project with the concept of navigator which means a large ship is sailing on the sea. In the original architecture, mock-up and sales office are in two separate buildings. The designer connects the two separate buildings together through a corridor and make them a complete one. We outline the profile of the ship with flow lines and attach the LED light strip based on the profile to present a large ship of modern times with future sense of science and technology. It is hard to achieve a complete effect if the architecture, landscape and interior design is done separately. So, we combine them together to get a whole design concept.
