The OCT Shenzhen Clubhouse
“OCT Shenzhen Clubhouse will not only mark the first presence of Richard Meier‘s Work in China but will also exemplify an exceptionally high quality building project around the region.” This is the mission set in the very beginning of the project at Sherman Kung & Associates Architects Ltd and has guided the project team through all challenges met during construction.
Well aware of the difference in construction standard in China and the U.S.， the first challenge of the project team is to cultivate an anticipation over the quality of the building by extensive briefing and meeting with the construction management team and the contractors. Interestingly， “grid and alignment” becomes one of the hot topics in virtually all project conservations to ensure the joints and lines meet (which is a very fundamental design requirement in Meier’s works). What makes the Clubhouse so much more special and difficult is that the pattern is in radial form and on tilted walls.
The tilted walls also posed a challenge in finding out the correct geometry of the exterior panels that fits the seemingly regular design grid. Cladded in high quality and tailor-made large seamless Corian panels， these feature walls are unprecedented both in Meier‘s works and in China’s building construction.
Like many other projects in Shenzhen of the same period， the Clubhouse faced a very tight construction schedule to meet with the opening of the Universiade 2011 Shenzhen. The construction arrangement was packed to such an extent that the interior fitting out already commenced even when the building envelope works was only 50% done. This required extensive site management and coordination to achieve the high accuracy of materials setting out and alignment that is essential to the architecture.
Besides the uniqueness in its architectural form and in the exploration of new materials， the success of OCT Clubhouse Shenzhen is a collaborative effort of the owner， the consultant teams and the construction teams. This experience is undoubtedly essential to promoting high quality construction in China.
