This concept for the sales centre of the Harbin Wanghe City was based around Ice. Harbin is world famous for its freezing winters and ice sculpture festivals.
However, even with its winter festivals, the city is an otherwise cold and grey place to live.
With this design I wanted to compliment the building using it’s own lines of force whilst also working with the textures that will be created during the winter months. By using sharp lines, hidden heated elements and bright colours I really wanted to bring this small area to life in an otherwise drab and unimaginative environment.
The client themselves loved this idea, but opted for our more conventional second concept seen here.
