The Xitang East Area is the eastward extension of Xitang Old Town. It includes 100,000 square meters of private retail, hotel, visitor center and cultural facilities which are being thoroughly developed. The hope is that when this area is completed, it will become a new entrance to the northeast of the old city. The Xitang East Area itself is divided into two phases, Building One is located at the low tide southwest of the utada site, and on the other side of the river is the retail block phase.

The strict urban planning requirements of the Xitang Old Town area are aimed at new buildings in scenic areas. This requirement not only regulates the building height limit, this requirement also regulates the slope of the roof, the use of small blue-black tiles, black-white and gray tones, and wood colors which are prerequisites for the design. From this, the question arises regarding what kind of program is suitable to be planned in the riverbank core area in the east area? As well as what kind of form should be used to meet the functional requirements and define landmarks and urban landscape requirements.

The Scenic Architecture Office translates programming and style regulation into space and image design commitments. The Chinese gable roof supported by white gable walls is a traditional type of housing form in the southern Yangtze River Delta, and the single roof can be replicated continuously to cover a larger area. The space in the frame is used to mount the MEP equipment, and a continuous corrugated indoor space forms under the frame. The freely distributed Y-shaped columns ensure an open and flowing space for the market, allowing for a shareable and flexible space for multiple functions.

Art galleries are on the market, and if we continue to use the language of gables and residential units, we will easily achieve harmony in style, but then it will be difficult to provide the necessary landmark identity and large interior space. The connection with tradition is no longer limited to figurative forms, but takes inspiration from woodworking to pursue a more complete icon.
