Composite and unified functional layout
The Tianli square is located in the south of the Tianyi International Car City. As a connection, the designer hopes to continue the business experience of Tianli square in phase I to the atmosphere of the automobile city in phase II.

The planning structure of the park adopts the concept of "one axis and two areas". "One axis" refers to the north and south axis of Tianli square, and "two areas" refers to commercial, auto exhibition & sales and auto parts decoration areas.

The architect arranged the new car exhibition and sales center on the third floor above the ground in the northeast corner of the site to create the city interface and landmark image of Lishui. At the same time, the second-hand car exhibition and sales center is placed on the underground floor and the first floor on the west side of the south side of the automobile city, which is connected with the sunken square.

Vehicle-related integrated supporting service functions, such as vehicle management office and vehicle detection center, are uniformly set in the east-central position of the site. Auto Parts & beauty services are arranged along the south side of the plot, forming a dynamic business street with the Central Plaza building.

The two-story podium on the west side of the north and the first underground floor serve as supporting commercial retail, which can fully use the city's commercial interface. The two towers bear the functions of hotel and office respectively. The highest level in the south is also for office use. The main entrance of the hotel is located in the South Commercial Street, and the office entrance is arranged along the west side of the plot.

The well connection of the interior and the central and sunken squares, created an double first-floor image.

This composite functional layout considering industry and urban supporting services is a natural result of combining the needs of developer, government and urban services.

Automobile culture throughout
Automobile is not only the theme of Tianyi International Car City but also the inspiration source of the image.

During the design of Tianyi International Car City, architects hope to incorporate the style of fashion, cool and industrial sense into the facade design of the building. Through a variety of architectural details, create a rich architectural image.

The whole project adopts a simple modern facade style. The design focuses on the volume sense of the building, which echoes with the automobile elements through the building bite and dynamic shape.

Streamlined lines and bite shape, as well as the irregular skin used in the building skirt, are the biggest characteristics of the automobile city architectural form.

The main building adopts the outer skin perforated plate to form a rhythmic and more integrated volume. At the same time, led and other material elements are added to make the business more dynamic and iconic.

The simple and dynamic form, the characteristic and atmospheric material application form the landmark building image of the Lishui portal.
