WISTO：In this project, the inspiration of spatial design stems from traditional Chinese courtyard, while the landscape design celebrating the beauty of oriental aesthetics, especially drawing upon the aesthetic ideas of the Song Dynasty, including architectural style, calligraphic culture, and craftsmanship. By integrating such ideas with modern construction materials and techniques, a poetic, modest place is built, where is full of fine details, natural vitality, and elegant ambience, beyond the limited space of the site.
Take the traditional style of residence gate in song dynasty, remain the essences of traditional form. Taking its majestic momentum, adopting the technique of ” Chinese soul and western skill” and combining with modern architectural expressions, the ” shape” of the door head is highlighted by dark ecological wood on both sides of the building, and the charm of the door head of the ancient building is outlined through color difference comparison. The design of the grille is integrated with the calligraphy culture of ” thin gold body” prevailing in song dynasty to increase its charm . The 12 – meter – long and 6 – meter – wide waterscape in front of the door and the wide falling water surface formed by black stainless steel have lengthened the depth of field of the picture and widened the space of the front court.
The inspiration for Chinese wall came from the ” ruihe figure” of Song dynasty.
The main scene of the mirror courtyard is inspired by the famous painting ” ruihe figure” of Song dynasty . The meaning of it is “opening the door to congratulate others”. The picture of ” ruihe figure” is simple, and the composition of the screen wall is the essence of it, striving to be extremely simple. The screen wall adopts stainless steel seal cutting technology, and the craftsman carries out manual engraving on the stainless steel metal surface. The mirror surface running water is adjusted again and again to ensure that the screen wall is in the slowly flowing water, the design of pattern is also elegant.
After walking through the swaying tree courtyard, the central water courtyard unfolds like a silent landscape painting in front of our eyes, with the open mirror water and the architecture reflecting each other. There is a green island floating on the water surface, and the ink petals at the bottom of the pond bloom leisurely.
In the water court, on the green island, a sculpture was placed to echo the project name. In addition, planting a selection of Jacaranda mimosifolia shows the sense of vitality. The composition of ink petals at the bottom of the pond has been tested repeatedly by using stone mosaic as material，and through digital typesetting after countless attempts to achieve the quietly elegant color of ink.
