L&A Design: High-quality community landscape does not mean high construction costs or numerous materials, but more of the ultimate pursuit of community functions and effective control of landscape costs. It also means finding a balance between high quality and low cost, so that the landscape design can be presented in the community in a more aesthetic, ecological and caring form.
Suzhou is known as “Paradise on Earth” and “City of Gardens”, while Cui Ting inherits the essence of gardening in Suzhou gardens with delicacy and artistic conception, and integrates classical gardens into the community landscape in a modern way. The project’s design exploration is carried out from the three aspects of ecology, function and aesthetics, completing the challenge of “creating a higher quality community landscape within controlled cost”.
01.巧妙的生态追求-生态宜居的社区景观 Clever ecological pursuit Ecological and livable community landscape
The cost of Cui Ting Landscape is about 400 yuan per square meter. In the early stage, the ratio of soft scene to hard scene was controlled at 4:6 to ensure the control of the cost. As a large-scale project of Jiangsu CIFI sponge system, in order to create a plant landscape with a sense of atmosphere and quality, the plant space structure is divided into three levels of rain gardens under the vision of natural, interesting and humanity. So that plants are integrated into the community landscape in a ingenious and ecological way, making full use of the green space between the houses in the residential area to form an ecological space.
一级雨水花园——阳光草坪 First level — Sunshine Lawn
Sunshine Lawn is 40 meters long from east to west and 15 meters wide from north to south. In order to reduce the maintenance cost of a large area of pure lawn, the organic combination of conventional lawn and concave green space is adopted, which not only meets the index requirements of the sponge system, but also enriches the landscape effect of plant groups on the lawn.

At the same time, multiple overflow outlets are set at the lowest part of the green space, which can quickly collect the accumulated water on the surrounding roads in rainy days, effectively saving the cost of the road drainage system.
▽ 溢水口设计 Overflow design
二级雨水花园——宅间绿地 Second level — Green spaces between buildings
In order to ensure good indoor lighting and the sight from the south balcony, the south side of the building adopts a natural concave treatment, using herbs, aquatic plants, and perennial flower border plants for plant group matching, combined with the gravel belt to form a rain garden space, which not only enhances the landscape effect of the garden between buildings, but also facilitates the drainage of the building and the collection of rainwater in the surrounding green space.

三级雨水花园——雨水收集 Third level — Rainwater collection
In the large green space on both sides of the road, there are many patch rain gardens lower than the road.
The setting of the level kerb connecting the hard pavement and the green space has been carefully considered and designed. On rainy days, the accumulated water on the road is naturally discharged into the rain garden along the height difference, saving the cost of designing a drainage system for the road. At the same time, the stagnant water in a large area of green space will also form a natural drainage system to effectively prevent waterlogging.
02.合适的功能追求-为生活提供多种的可能性 Proper functional pursuit Providing multiple possibilities for life
The diversity of functions can provide more activity space for community life, and can also better reflect the “humanity” feature of CIFI Jiangsu regional Group’s concept “natural, interesting and humanity”. As a rigid-demand estate, the limited cost has become a key limiting factor. Therefore, it is particularly important to arrange suitable and required functions.
Cui Ting takes the shared living room, children’s playground and sports field as the three core landscapes as the spatial layout, and sets up small functional venues combined with plants between buildings, such as the forest square, one-meter vegetable garden, and plant science popularization garden, which are all connected organically by a circular jogging track.
▽ 场地空间布局分析 Site Spatial Layout Analysis
The entrance of the community is a dual-functional space that integrates opposite scenery and guidance. The paving presented as a circular line inspired by a circular tree pond, blurs the directionality of the space, and forms a simple and natural opposite scenery with the addition of trees. The scenery and the returning guidance are skillfully integrated into one, enriching both space and the experience of returning home.
▽ 社区入口 Community entrance
A landscape wall is added at the entrance to subtly divide the space into two parts: the east side is the easy-to-pass, quiet and elegant reading corridor, and the west side is the pleasant and lively shared living room.
▽ 休闲廊架 Leisure gallery
The children’s field is surrounded by a circle of running tracks, which can not only effectively define the scope of the activity field, but also divide a special area for children to play scooters and ride bicycles.
On the basis of the standard badminton training ground, the half-court basketball court is divided by the colored patterns on the ground pavement,which can also be used as an outdoor expansion activity venue for children or adults.
▽ 综合运动场 Comprehensive sports ground
03.简洁的美学追求-兼顾品质与美学的归家仪式感 A concise aesthetic pursuit A sense of return ceremony of both quality and aesthetics
Limited cost can limit the choice of materials, but not the pursuit of quality. We hope that through design, ordinary spaces can become more functional and aesthetic, and ordinary materials can become more quality and aesthetic.
自然的美学 The aesthetic of nature
We hope to create a forest-themed community that is also in line with CIFI Jiangsu Regional group’s long-standing vision. Using forests to interpret nature and gardens is also to make forests a container for modern life, so that more interesting things can be done naturally in the woods.
On the axis road, the design selects two plant layers, arbor and ground cover, which saves the cost of the shrub layer, and also gives each tree more growth space, so that the axis road has more sense of ceremony and artistic conception.
On the way home, three layers of trees, hedges and ground cover are used, and the array of trees and carefully trimmed shrubs welcome every owner.
At the entrance of the unit, the modular layout standardized by CIFI Jiangsu Regional group is adopted, as well as two levels of shrubs and flower borders. The blank space on the LOGO wall provides sufficient space for the display of plants in the flower border. The selection of flower border plants are mainly foliage plants such as Farfugium japonicum, Dysosma chengii, Hosta undulata Bailey, Mahonia bealei, Bright crystal virginity, Sprinkle gold coral, etc., creating a natural and vibrant unit landscape.
轻盈的美学 The aesthetics of lightness
For the first time, Cui Ting has put the “CIFI All-Age Ring” children’s module into the large area. The organic combination of children’s play equipment, adult sports equipment and big trees fully demonstrates the “functional, economical and natural” characteristics of the all-age ring. The Ring reserves more playgrounds for children to play and run, so that children can explore the secrets in the woods in their own way and spend time happily in nature.
▽ 儿童乐园 Children’s Paradise
线条的美学 The aesthetics of lines
In order to ensure the experience of returning home, the design of the entrance is not the progressive space represented by the traditional gate, but instead uses the sentry box as the separation between pedestrians and vehicles, to maximize the sense of homecoming ceremony.
▽ 仪式感入口门廊 Ceremonial entrance porch
The two sides of the gate are inlaid with 10cm vertical coffee-colored aluminum panels, which echoes the tall trees, and also forms a strong contrast with the horizontal top line, fully demonstrating the powerful beauty brought by the lines. The pavement is made of terrazzo materials of dark and light colors, which not only saves high labor costs, but also better reflects the beauty of curved lines.
材料的美学 The aesthetics of materials
The loop track adopts dark gray permeable concrete with a particle size of 3-5 mm, which is more smooth and delicate than the commonly used ones. At the same time, the track is painted blue with low saturation, using 100 mm white hot melt line as the separation to subtly enhance the quality of the overall road.
▽ 休闲健身 Leisure fitness
Considering the management of rainwater, the design team paid great attention to the water permeability of the pavement in the material selection: the rain garden generally uses black mountain stone with a particle size of 5-8 cm, in order for better water permeability and daily maintenance by controlling the particle size of the material.
写在最后 The End
High quality and limited cost are not contradictory. Low cost can make the landscape return to its purest essence without losing details and taste. The landscape construction practice of CIFI The Era·Cui Ting in Suzhou has given us more thoughts on landscape design, we hope that such landscape practice can be explored deeper to quality community landscape design.
