Shenzhen Vanke Star City | Zhubo Design | IRA Awards 2023

Zhubo Design: Winner of International Residential Architecture Awards 2023. The Vanke Star City project is located in Shajing Xinqiao Street, Baoan District, Shenzhen City. It is an urban renewal project developed by combining six plots. Two public building plots on the south side, three residential plots on the north side and one school plot constitute a complete community-level supporting system.

The plan puts forward a “compound community” – a planning strategy for the city and co-prosperity. A community is not an isolated island of the city, but an integral part of the city. We extend the vision of planning and design from the inside of the community to the outside of the community, not only focusing on the needs of the community, but also the needs of the city. The city, public space and community are combined in an orderly manner, and the community and the city are connected in series through the triple interface of “city, integration and exclusiveness”, so as to realize the sequence of transition from open urban space to private community space.

Residential plots focus on the feeling of close-to-human-scale space under high density. From the node design of public open space on urban streets to the spatial sequence of community entrances, lobby foyers, and home entrances, all reflect the spirit of meticulous and ingenious design. Residential products are examples of prefabricated projects in Shenzhen. The product design embodies the advanced concepts of building interior integration, construction standardization, and industrialized construction.
