In the trend of global IOT industry growth, logistical facilities and warehouses have become a new building typology and thus new architecture solutions must be established. Ally Logistics expected this project to establish a new standard of construction with maximum capacity and minimum construction cost, while setting a new benchmark of futuristic design.
Due to the limited site area, unlike the traditional horizontal warehousing, the three-stories ware-house is vertically stacked and connected by two 120m long ramps to form a high-efficiency logistics center. The building volumes are designed to be inclined at 60 degrees, to not only naturally form a canopy cover over the cargo loading area, but also convey the sense of speed of the adjacent high speed trains. Such design articulation also greatly reduces the visual impact of the huge volumes. The façade’s dynamic rhythm reflects the internal logistics flow and is also in harmony with the natural ponds in the environment.
The precast concrete panels exterior wall not only meets the requirements of safety, fire prevention and increased heat insulation green building performance, but also the twill appearance makes the overall building appearance respond to the human scale and increase the visual dynamic richness. The diagonal barcode symbol of the façade enhances the image of rapid transportation and informatisation in the logistics industry.
