The project is located in Binjiang New Town, Yue Lu District, Changsha City, with the financial square to the south, Yihao Yuanyang to the north, and the Xiang River to the east. Adjacent to the Xiang River Scenic Belt, it enjoys a superior geographical location and is one of the most promising areas for development. The surrounding area is rich in natural resources, with convenient transportation and well-developed educational, medical, and commercial facilities.

"Who first saw the moon by the riverside, and when did the moon first shine upon mankind?" Let the river, the moon, and the people engage in a dialogue in the space and time environment. It expresses the spiritual significance of the relationship between individuals and architecture, architecture and the city, the city and history, and individuals and historical time and space.

In the project plan, the east-west public corridor is integrated to create the main entrance of the community on the east side. The exhibition area is strategically located in conjunction with the main entrance to create a luxurious homecoming experience. At the intersection of the planned public passage and the riverside road, the first floor is elevated to create a shared urban square. Transparent glass curtain walls on both sides embrace the flow of people, welcoming them with open arms.

The building itself is an exhibit,and the city, even the vast history, becomes its exhibition hall. After two months of exploratory attempts, we finally found a point of convergence. The "front face of a luxury car" serves as the perfect embodiment of classic elements such as water and light. It appeared in the designer's mind in a flash of inspiration, showcasing the project's high-end attributes and significance through a city-scale image.

In the new era,with a new mission, urban architecture not only fulfills its functional requirements but also carries or reshapes the memories of a place. Considering the site attributes of the riverside,we pay more attention to the role of architecture in the place and its role in the future. It showcases the current charm and envisions a "artwork" of a wonderful future living experience.
