Facade Reconstruction of the Primary School Affiliated to NPU

Located in Xixian new area, this project is about 5km away from the downtown of Xianyang - south of Fengchan Road, west of Shanglin Road, east of Basai Sunshine Community, west of Xi'an town residential project, south of reserved railway land, and north of existing farmland. The land area of the project is about 30431 square meters. The original building includes a teaching building and a residential building. The total building area is about 23900 square meters, with a height of about 18 meters. PMA was invited to carry out the facade reconstruction design for the main façade of the existing building, improving the effectiveness of the original façade.


After a thorough analysis of the site conditions and the building functions, PMA divided the façade into four types of space according to the differences of the internal services of the original building, including the indoor teaching function space, office function space, traffic function space, and auxiliary function space. After analyzing the four spaces from the aspects of usage, lighting, and ventilation, we came up with four corresponding facade reconstruction strategies, using a complete reconstruction system built by means of scale, grid spacing, and grid density change. By the same time improving the visual effect of the facade, the strategy achieved a high degree of unity of the internal functions of the building and the design language of the façade.


After reconstruction, the façade of the building now adopts the silver-white aluminum plate, silver-white aluminum grid with light gray paint, and black window frame, forming the effect of modernism.
