The multi awards winner, XIAN GUO BA FACTORY RENOVATION project finally opened to the public at this historical city. Given the location and site nature, the design approach was taken in broader view to reborn this forgotten area. After embracing new and old, and the city connectivities, the master planning brought in new axis to transfer the hidden memories to the new and vibrant city nodes. With young and energetic new economy trade mix positioning, this No-Boundary-Space presented the unique immersive experience in Xian. The architecture respected the old buildings, and implanted in the new elements to be the leading focal points in the area. For this particular case, we believe the better design is to transform the past to a new life seamlessly and tracelessly.

NEWS’ roles are masterplanning and architecture design.
