Suzhou, China – X+Living designed the swimming club, which uses playful, abstract design to target parents and children.
The Loong Swim Club, which also has branches in Beijing and Shanghai, has opened a wonderland-inspired leisure club in the city of Suzhou. Experimenting with proportion and eye-catching candy colours, architecture design firm X+Living is designed to appeal to parents and children alike.
Alongside a swimming pool, the space includes educational classrooms, a reading room, infant and adult bathing areas that feature a large flower chandelier, and a dining area with an ‘eggshell castle’ for children to play in.
The blurring lines between fantasy and reality, and adulthood and childhood are inspiring creatives such as X+Living to create spaces referencing Playscapes in order to truly enchant visitors.
