Huakai Residence, a fusion of traditional Chinese garden and modern landscape


Housing  /  Future

This 92,000sqm community residence presents healthy living for all ages. It is part of the new 85-acre (Phase 1) town development of Quzhou Chunfeng Jiangshan Town. The residential site is 10 minutes’ drive to the north of Jianglang Mountain, where it exhibits Danxia landform and was inscribed onto the World Heritage List as part of China Danxia. The architectural form must revolve with government policy. For example, The Window Tax in 1798, was a significant architectural force to France, causing many to be designed with false windows. Nowadays in China, with the new planning policy of banning villa development, the vertical townhouse became the trend. By stepping out, picking out, and staggering, the design team strives to bring each household a private terrace space. The units on the first and second floors have 110-130 sqm area, those units have a large walk-in closet and bathrooms. On the third and fourth floor, the units have 85-95 sqm area, with one less bedroom and a staggered terrace area. On the fifth floor, is the penthouse, with a 130 sqm area, plus a 57sqm outdoor space. In addition, to protect the owners’ privacy, all the terraces have an additional 600mm-long extended hanging board. Therefore, each building is not a traditional rectangle box, but has various sizes of green balconies in all floors to create a vivid atmosphere to the residence. In the final CD phase, there turned out to be a total 25 different unit plans. For architectural style, to follow the overall town planning, the building façade kept some language from traditional Chinese style and refined it to be modern and clean. The building style innovation is also a big challenge for construction. Our designer produced a thorough construction brochure emphasizing each unit layout, material used in building elevation and color-coded details, to make the communication with the contractor more accurate and efficient. For the landscape element, the ceremonial arrival lobby has a reflection water feature in the center, the residential courtyard style is a fusion of traditional Chinese garden and modern landscape, infinity pool and other high-end amenities are under construction. There’s a covered corridor linked to all buildings which ensure pedestrian safety under any kind of weather. The design is aimed to create the welcoming feeling of "returning to the peace of nature", simple but elegant.
