NEXT WHAT'S NEW & OF NOTE

THE CO-LIVING ROOM

Above and right: Unlike the
private nature of the xiaoqu,
the Youkong Living Room
brings residents together to
connect and interact.

Over the last two decades, a ubiquitous
phenomenon has steadily remade residential
life in China-the xiaoqu. While these closed
residential microdistricts, which often feature
identical imposing high-rises surrounded by
large security walls, have become the dominant
form of urban housing, the designs often lack any
semblance of communal space.
This is a problem Chinese design firm Wutopia
Lab is attempting to solve through its Youkong
Living Room. Designed for Vanke Midwest
in Chengdu's Fifth Community Go Mall, the
Youkong Living Room is meant to act as a buffer
between private residences and the city beyond,
where residents can connect, relax, and build a
sense of community so often lacking in the xiaoqu.
The living room is divided into three separate
areas-one for services like package delivery, one
for reading and socializing, and one specifically for women and children. Looking for intimacy, the design
team at Wutopia stressed a semi-open aesthetic that allows some visual connection among spaces without
imposing on the privacy of users in the space.
The team also bucked convention by creating a cozy atmosphere with aluminum and glass accents
throughout. With any luck, the room will draw many out into the open.
