SHUISHI:The project is located in Yunnan province. It is only natural that we should create something commensurate with it in this beautiful city. Excavating Yunnan culture and creating projects with Yunnan characteristics are also the persistent and pursuit of the owners.



Taking ” a signet residence” as a prototype, the architecture takes its appearance determines the state of the project, while the landscape expands from ” patio” to the outer courtyard, protecting the architectural appearance and breaking its sense of occlusion. The architecture and landscape will open up the site and form the basic layout of a house and two courtyards.

The interior of the project site is about 2m higher than the municipal roads, and the public green belts of the community are located on the south and east sides. Inspired by the colorful terraced fields in Yunnan, the design uses the flower sea terraced fields to resolve the height difference, forming the first urban interface of the project site, enclosing but without obstacles, and drawing the boundary of the site with pastoral memory.




Cornices and wooden structures, reconstructing traditional elements in modern ways, have become the biggest feature of the gates. The umbrella frame on the right side is half open, supporting the cornice, and the mountain-shaped folded part is pushed to the left.




Using the dynamic form of cornices, skillfully build the conversion space of entrances and exits, and naturally incorporate the entrances of the west parking lot. This piece of land, like a tile curtain, follows the cornice and combines with the waterscape to form a unique landscape space experience.




When you pick up several steps, you enter the first large open space, that is, the first courtyard. Tile is not only a strong cultural attribute, but also a cheap and easily available building material, thus becoming the main design material.




Design in a pure way, make full use of tile to build.




Stacked ink tiles were lined with thin water, and red fish swarmed through Shui Yunjian in groups of three or two. The construction of artistic conception has become the biggest design highlight of the front yard.




Waterscape is the fluctuation, while good landscape is within sight and needs to be responded. As a transition between waterscape and architecture, pavilion is also a three-dimensional response of landscape in space.




Stone bridge, micro arch, a natural arc leads the line of sight to another place. Pure geometry, modern metal lines, this is the opposite of tile temperament. The design is clever to make the pavilion’s volume empty, simplify its form, and add a modern flavor to the light and shadow.




Walking on the surface of the water, meeting a branch, and then entering the building area. During this journey, architecture and landscape are in a tacit balance.

The building block changes, with white walls and black tiles, the eaves extending smoothly, the landscape taking water as cloth, and showing the different customs of the building in an appropriate posture. The water glistened and billowed, sneaking through the clouds.





This is an inner chamber of about 18×26, which is evolved from the courtyard of ” a signet residence”. However, the scale is adjusted and enlarged appropriately according to the building and the courtyard in the front court, which is about one-fourth of the building and one-third of the courtyard in the front court.
Chambers continue the design method of the outer court, with tile, stone, sand, stone, water and landscape trees as the main design elements to show the relationship between architecture, sky and clouds in a more restrained way.




The main scene in inner chambers is a large stone placed on the surface of the water beside and combined with the falling water. A pine tree is planted next to it. The stone across waterscape connects north and south, and the measured scale ensures at least 1 meter at the widest point, avoiding finely-divided forms.
