Beijing Metro Line 14 Lize Shangwuqu Station is the first station to open as part of the “five-line interchange station” in the Lize Business District. As an important interchange, the station is adjacent to the regional landmarks of Lize SOHO and Lize Paradise Walk to the south and will also connect to the future Daxing Airport Lize City Terminal in the north.
The project allows natural light to be introduced into the station hall through two skylights, changing the experience of dull and closed underground space and realising an “overground transformation of underground space”. The use of cumbersome decorations is abandoned and plain cement is utilised as a means of highlighting the structural beauty of the columns. The design of the ceiling primarily involves the use of aluminium panels with ambient GRG dome lights and LED stripes arranged in lines. In addition, the circular chandeliers that are above the core areas create a visual illusion of floating from a distance. The grouping of the lights create a feeling of depth and the combination of elements together makes the station hall uniform in colour, harmonious in language and rich in texture.
