A BEAUTIFUL BEACH
The beaches of Pingtan Island are abbreviated as "Ao" which located in the middle of Pingtan Tannan Bay Scenic Area, there is a high-quality with great development potential beach called Tian Meiao. In recent years, the tourist market in Pingtan is prosperous, with crowds in major tourist attractions, Tian Meiao has become a holiday destination for tourists enjoy in stepping on sand and waves.
UNABLE TO BUILD / IN SITU MODIFICATION
Due to the increase in the number of tourists, Tianmeiao needs to build up a tourist Station with public service attributes. However, Pingtan Island has strict protection of natural resources, and it is impossible to add construction land within the ecological red line of the beach. Therefore, we preserved the abandoned abalone farm on Tianmeiao where was decided to be demolished, we trying to transform the idle fish farming space into a tourist service station, to provid convenient rest, communication, food & drinks for the tourists and local here.
CONTINUOUS FORM / FUNCTIONAL REMODELING
This abandoned abalone farm building was renovated after storage. The exterior design of the entire station continues the shape of the local stone house, retaining the original building base and reconstructing the traditional hard mountain roof. Interpret the dialogue between the past and the present, and let each stone left over show the charm of the stone house in a new form.
In addition to the basic service supporting functions such as public toilets and shower rooms, we hope to enhance the business form. A public corridor space is implanted in the site, and two existing buildings are connected in series to form an inner courtyard. Use the height difference of the current breeding pond in the courtyard to build a stage space of the service station. The building, the corridor and the inner courtyard are functionally distinguished from each other to form the three public spaces : exhibition space, leisure space and commercial reserved space.
CONFORMING TO THE NATURE / USE LOCAL MATERIALS
To cope with the special climate of Pingtan area, fishermen here has built distinctive stone houses with local granite and volcanic rock as the main building materials since ancient times. Those buildings was bulit without architects, which are permeated with the local residents' concept for respecting and conforming to nature, also those bulidings to reflecting the fishermen's survival wisdom . The retained stone walls are resistant to wind and corrosion, very strong. The new roof modeling, corridor and other metal components are made of aluminum, which improves the anti-corrosion and moisture-proof ability. It is a combination of traditional construction technology and modern construction technology.
IT IS NOT ONLY A SERVICE STATION
Tian mei ao service station is located between the beach and Huan dao Road. It also welcomes visitors from all over the world with an energy field of unique regional culture. Exhibitions and performances of intangible cultural heritage items such as "ciming opera, teng pai exercises, shell carvings, sea willow carvings" are held in the station, visitors can experience and watch dynamic performances while enjoying local intangible cultural heritage. By moving the intangible cultural heritage into the scenic spot, with the advantage of tourism platform, multi-directional promotion of Pingtan's characteristic traditional culture, forming a complementary and mutually reinforcing relationship between culture and tourism.
