Hong Kong S.A.R., China | 2021
The 632,900-square-metre project will be built on a site of 129,000-square-metres on the south side of Dongguan Railway Station, the first station of Dongguan Rail Transit Line 2. It is set to become a comprehensive transportation hub where the Guangzhou-Shenzhen railway, metro and highway meet, linking Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong. As Dongguan’s gateway to Guangzhou and Shenzhen, it aims to create a transit-oriented development (TOD) combining mobility infrastructure, daily amenities, retail, offices, residences and culture. The challenge of the project is to efficiently organise a set of complex three-dimensional traffic facilities with linkages to surrounding urban functions, achieving in a multifunctional space that is more than just a train station. Firstly, traffic is optimised with a dropoff ramp that follows the traditional counter-clockwise flow, saving existing road space without clashing with the first floor corridor and facilitating the community’s daily use. Secondly, diverse, landscaped retail facilities are allocated around two ends of the bus route, tying up with the metro station circulation to create a dynamic extension of the urban landscape that challenges the monotonous atmosphere of traditional station space. TOD design principles are incorporated to create an energetic three-dimensional transportation node, offering seamless transition between the transport and pedestrian networks. The slow mobility system is organically integrated with natural landscape to shape an engaging, multilayered living space.
