FISH :The project is located in the western suburbs of Shanghai. The original space shape of the courtyard with an area of about 650 square meters was extremely irregular. Therefore, the primary task of the design is to reshape the space by sorting out circulations and guiding the sight from the plan layout. We hope to create a visual, storytelling, and poetic space. Building a garden with an artistic mind, entering the garden with the “heart of forests and springs”, we make the garden a small land that can get close and return to nature.
The main garden is divided into three phases. The spatial sequence starts from the blue tidal sea with visual access to the mountains at the entrance. Then, the fog and wave lead to a refreshing space with the spring water leaping. Approaching the end of the courtyard, space seems to end there but suddenly shows a remote vision of the mountain. The overall layout of the mountains and rivers is a combination of both dynamic and static status.

碧海潮生 The Blue Tidal Sea
Opening the doors and windows of the living room, a rising rock wall indicates the idea of visual accessibility to mountains at the entrance. The cloud pavement and the lawn are intertwined and infiltrated into the ground like a vast water surface. The wind blows the clouds and stirs up the waves, constantly slams the island.

Looking out of the room through the window, the clouds rush into the tide, like a banner painting of the poetry describing, “Waves are roaring with mountains standing”. The firmness of the stone in the courtyard and the softness of the intentional water are fused in the same scene, giving people a rich sense of experience and imagination.
烟波致爽 Fog and Wave
Walking on the surging “stone wave” paving and walk inward, visitors will reach the “fish watching pond” in the center of the courtyard. This is a group of traditional Japanese gardens with a water feature called “Longmen Waterfall”. The group of stones going down creates an advanced and retreated relationship between vision and space. The leaping waterfall and the surrounding plant clusters form the characteristics of a dynamic loop, which contrasts with the power of stone.

Above the water pond, the wooden structure of the tea pavilion plays a role in supporting the integration of the space. On the one hand, it provides a stopping point for watching the waterfall and listening the sound of the water. On the other hand, it directs the sight to the depth of the trail.
孤山远影 Remote Vision of the Mountain
Walking to the deepest part of the courtyard, and strolling on the winding mountain trails, visitors will feel like having a mountain trip to a more private space for meditation and imagination.
The mountains are looming in the frame of the foreground plants and the background plants. The ground and the sidewall of the rock and stone adopt a unified design method. Also, the gravel simulated dry brook also adopts the same color system to achieve a seamless effect. From the selection of materials to the construction, the edges and textures of the natural stone have remained, and the natural mood of the mountains is stacked to achieve the multi-perspectives of the mountain.
细节展示 Detail presentation
The treatment of the gaps between the stones is the most important finishing touch here. Each gap must be carefully considered to mimic the trend, width, depth of natural stone gaps. The wide gap is embedded with turf and vines, and the embellishment of plants injects breath into the rocks, which also provides the artificial gable stone wall wildness and vitality of the mountains.
