EDGING A&LA: The name “Cloud Hill” means “auspicious clouds enter the neighborhood”, and it is derived from the old name of the site, “Ruyi Li”, and the existing name of the adjacent alley, “Jixiang Li”, which together form the blessing of “good luck and happiness”. This hope for a better life is inherited and developed in the “Cloud Hill” garden at 575 Henan Middle Road. The design takes inspiration from the artistic interpretation of “sunshine illuminating mountain mist.” The undulating and artistic folded panels extend between the layered and rugged grass slopes, resembling the flowing and ethereal beauty of “Cloud Hill” depicted by a stroke of a brush. It blends naturally and gracefully, gently flowing in the bustling street corners of the city. Enter the “Cloud Hill” garden, where you will be taken through the historical clouds by the profound cultural heritage, the beautiful life meaning, and the vibrant ecological beauty, and experience the leisure time hidden in the city.
The base is located within the jurisdiction of Bund Street in Huangpu District, Shanghai, at the southwest intersection of Henan Middle Road and Beijing East Road. It is 16-27m wide from east to west and 66m long from north to south, with a total area of 1160 square meters. The original site of the base has a high degree of hardening, severe pavement fragmentation, excessive “white” space left in public spaces, and poor street style.

01 再现“日照山岚”的画意 Reproduction of the Artistic Meaning of “Sunshine Mountain and Haze”
The design extracts the symbols and shades of gray and pink from the imagery of the “Rizhao Mountains and Haze”, and unfolds the undulating artistic folding board between the lush grass slopes, transforming the “flat and single” hard ground into a “folded three-dimensional” green space, creating a landscape intention of “Cloud Hill”.

02 “吉祥如意”里弄故事演绎 “Auspicious Luck” Story Interpretation in Lane
1848年，英租界向河南中路以西扩大。 19世纪五、六十年代，外国的房产商在这片区域修筑了大量石库门建筑，开始了华洋杂居。 不同于公寓、花园洋房，石库门建筑以中国传统的围合式合院发展而来，改多进为单进，是市井生活的代表。
基地内的石库门建筑竣工于1876年，是上海最早一批元老级里弄。 苏州河一带居民生活受中国传统文化及乡土的影响深刻，为这两个石库门里弄取名为“如意里”和“吉祥里”，表达了居民对未来生活的美好期盼。 现“吉祥里”名称得到保留，原“如意里”所在地为现在的山北小区。
In 1848, the British concession expanded to the west of Henan Middle Road. In the 1850s and 1960s, foreign real estate developers built a large number of Shikumen buildings in this area and began to live in mixed Chinese and foreign communities. Unlike apartments and garden houses, Shikumen architecture has developed from the traditional Chinese enclosed courtyard style, changing from multiple entrances to single entrances, and is a representative of urban life.
The Shikumen building in the base was completed in 1876 and was one of the earliest veteran level alleys in Shanghai. The lives of residents in the Suzhou River area are deeply influenced by traditional Chinese culture and local conditions. These two Shikumen alleys are named “Ruyi Lane” and “Jixiang Lane”, expressing residents’ beautiful expectations for future life. The name ‘Jixiangli’ has been preserved, and the original location of ‘Ruyili’ is now the Shanbei community.
