In to land and out to sea

Weihai Pavilion

  • Location Weihai, China
  • Status Built
  • Service Architecture
  • Sector Arts and culture
  • Area 600m²/6,450ft²
  • Client China Resources Land

This pavilion is a marketing suite for a major residential development in the coastal city of Weihai, on China’s Shandong Peninsula. Located on a nearby reclaimed island, it’s an information hub and event venue in one – an exhibition space to introduce the beauty of the development to potential occupants.

We took our cues from the local geography, where urban and coastal surroundings meet, and designed a crescent form that engages both environments. The building is divided into two spaces by a curved spine wall. The concave side of the curve casts its sights inland, reflecting the city behind it, while the outer convex side – with its bar, meeting spaces, cinema and wraparound external terrace – gazes out to sea. The sturdy bamboo cladding of the dividing wall is a neat contrast to the pavilion’s delicate flowing form.

This is a building with meeting at its heart – the momentary first encounter between the development and future residents, as well as the timeless meeting of land and sea.
