LANDAU：Xuanwu Ying is a journey where we are always looking for answers about ourselves, clues about time and memory, and a warm residence. The project is located in Xuanwu District, Nanjing, 3 kilometers away from Xuanwu Lake and Purple Mountain. It is one of the areas with the deepest urban plot and the origin of urban development. Nanjing people are full of emotions for the old Xuanwu’s mountains, rivers, bricks and tiles, even the plants and trees.
霓虹灯火，映照万家 Neon lights, reflecting on the thousand’s families
The front court of Ying Garden is the main interface facing the city, and it is the demarcation point of “Quiet when you enter, and prosperity when you exit.” It is necessary to consider the needs of future vehicle circulation and to reserve openings for shops to integrate with the surrounding environment and subsequent clubhouse buildings.
The 63-meter-span door head is designed with a combination of pearl blue stone and laminated glass on the overall facade, and the dark aluminum plate on the top is consistent with the building. The material ratio and light and shadow are extremely elegant. In the evening, the glass curtain wall and lights outline charming lines, low-key and refined, with extravagance and restraint.
The project is located in the old city, with a messy environment along the street, and a shallow water inlet. The translucent glass material creates a clean facade along the street in contrast with the old city, and at the same time combines the municipal interface to create neon lights; walking into the gallery itself can isolate the noise along the street and enjoy the water courtyard.
The strip-shaped stone has linear guidance and sequence beauty, and the gurgling water scene with springs is full of fun, and the two interact to form a delicate frontcourt space. It not only enriches the space experience during the exhibition, but also facilitates the transformation of the large area in the future.
寂夜寻光，豁然开朗 Seeking light in the silent night, suddenly enlightened
Through the gate, what is greeted is the abstract installation art from the texture of the Ming city wall Time Reflection. The installation blurs the boundary between the corridor and the water courtyard space, and strengthens the sense of extension of the space. Looking at the atrium here, it is looming, presenting a hazy beauty. The space is surrounded by long and narrow passages, and the light and shadow show different changes over time. When looking for the light to advance, when it reaches the end, it suddenly becomes bright.

Out of the corridor is the core water court. Taken from the inspiration of the five continents in Xuanwu Lake, the micro-lane water environment echoes the flowers and plants on the shore. The still water and blue waves are not only an artistic form, but also an emotional link between people and the city. Seeing the works of Weizhi, the view of Xuanwu Lake is reduced to this. Sitting quietly in front of the window, the vision and mood are suddenly broadened.
Because space is limited, the most important thing is how to experience nature to the maximum. It is the essence of residence that integrates life into nature. Using water to maximize the visual tension, the whole courtyard planted 10 tallow trees in a graceful and colorful manner. The water, trees, and shadows complemented each other, forming an orderly space of background, foreground, and reflection. Create a picture scroll mood of “Landscape City Forest”.

绿意盎然，自然家园 Full of greenery, natural home
The backyard natural garden is dominated by the micro-topography heap slope combined with the enchanting tree-shaped Chinese tallow tree, the art furniture shuttles under the green trees, and the ground is scattered with gravel. The plain wall is the base, chasing light and shadow. The wall is like a container of light, recording time. The changes are gentle and full of natural power, creating a natural picture scroll for the entire browsing experience.
In the hustle and bustle of urban life, it is rare to find a quiet artistic residence. Come back here after all day long, watching the light and shadow changing, the still water is in such a silence, listening to the wind blowing the shadow of the trees, feeling the contrast between the movement and the quiet, and get rid of this mortal life, even the time passing by here becomes soft and quiet.
