专访丨SAOTA 金斯威大厦

1.请您先简单介绍一下Kingsway Tower的概念?

Could you first introduce the design concept of Kingsway Tower?

它的设计灵感来自Lagos湖上传统船只的方帆。立面表皮的设计灵感来自棕榈叶,它是一种仿生学的形式,可以遮盖玻璃并减少外墙的热量负荷。通过结合这两个元素,我们创建一个属于Lagos的建筑。

The form was inspired by the square sails of the boats on the lagoon. The façade skin, which shades the glass and reduces the heat load on the façade, was inspired by palm fronds, it’s a form of biomimicry. By combing these two elements we were able to create a building that belongs to Lagos.

 

2. 可以简述客户想要的关键元素是什么?

What was the key element of the client brief?

该建筑物位于Lagos一个显眼的街角,因此客户希望这座建筑有明确的辨识度和存在感。除此之外,该建筑的功能性也非常重要,如停车场和配套服务设施。

The building is on an important corner site in Lagos so the client wanted a building that had a strong identity and presence. It was also very important that the building is very functional so a lot of work was put into getting things like the parking and servicing right.

 

3.你最喜欢这个项目的哪部分?

What’s your favourite thing about this project?

外立面是我们最喜欢的元素。

The façade is our favourite element.

 

 

4.您能介绍一下这个办公大楼的功能分区吗?

Could you introduce the functional partition of this office block?

该建筑物地下室是停车场,道路层设有零售裙楼,及额外的停车厂。在此之上是办公大楼。由于市政为Lagos可提供资源有限,因此,除了能够显著降低对空调的需求以及能够提供充足自然照明的能源利用方案以外,一切供水、净水、备用发电和污水处理等服务都由建筑独立完成。

The building has a level of parking in the basement, a retail level at street level and then two additional levels of parking. Above this is the office tower.  Lagos has problems with the provision of reliable municipal servers so the buildings also has its own generators and water and sewerage plants.

 

5.您是如何考虑建筑与周边环境关系的?

Have you considered the theory of humanized design in public area planning?

我们清楚懂得大厦要与周边环境紧密连接,从而呈现出街道和人行道之间高度开放的视觉联系。

Yes, we were very conscious of designing the building in such a way that it related to the street level. This resulted in a visually open ground level.

 

6. 竖项和横项人流动线规划的关键要素是什么?

What was the key element of planning perpendicular pedestrian flow and horizontal pedestrian flow?

从街道上可以很清楚地看到大堂,因此可以轻松的找到通往大楼的入口。在建筑里,可以通过电梯到达目的地。

The lobby is very visible from the street so there is a very clear approach to the building. Vertically the building is serviced by a lift core.

 

7.我们注意到铝板是建造该建筑的主要材料,该材料在项目设计中发挥出了什么作用?

We note that aluminium screens are the hero material used in this building, but what role did aluminium play in the design development for this project?

建筑外立面由穿孔的3mm折叠铝板组成。根据多方面研究对比,我们发现这是一种非常有用的幕墙材料。它本质很坚固,可折叠,易于清洁并且为结构增加了脆性。

The screen is made up of folded 3mm aluminium sheets that have been perforated. We found that is a very useful façade material in a number of ways. It is inherently strong because it is folded, it is easy to clean and it adds a crispness to the construction.

 

8.这个项目中最具挑战性的方面是什么?

What was the most challenging aspect of bringing this project to life?

对于Lagos来说,最复杂的问题肯定是采购,因为需要进口许多材料和系统。

For Lagos the most complex issue is definitely procurement, as many materials and systems needed to be imported.
