Hallucinate Design Office have recently completed Midwest Inland Port Financial Town for Maike Metals Group

Located in the Xi'an International Trade and Logistics Park, the Financial Town is a modern trading and logistics platform that offers integrated transportation, warehousing, freight forwarding and information services.

The interiors are designed in an open and tranquil style to showcase the importance of the project as the first platform in Midwest China to fill the gap of continuous transactions of the actuals and highlight its endorsement of modern trading. The completed design features a luminous roof and large-gridded digital walls that blur the boundaries between reality and imagination, modern technology.

Interior lighting is gentle and is achieved by adopting an outdoor illumination plan, casting the light through the three black metal pillars of different heights to the ceiling of the lobby and forming a diffuse reflection through the geodesic dome. The interior walls are covered with grids formed by tailor-made extruded aluminium sections of special dimensions melded with LED P60 electronic display units and sealed with a translucent resin coating to soften the brightness of the information display on the grids.

In the lecture hall, the ceiling is in the shape of folded paper to reduce sound reflections and avoid excessive light onto the presentation screen. The seats are arranged in a tilted and asymmetrical way to echo the irregular shapes of the ceiling and enable a convenient entry and exit for the users.
