GM Landscape Design: Taihe Qingyun town located in the “Fuzhou garden” Yongtai County, Geling Town, with abundant ecological resources and distant cultural accumulation. Taihe Group integrates resources, plans ahead, and is committed to creating a super cultural and tourist project that integrates leisure, recuperation, residence and commerce, making Geling’s unique landscape resources and residential value perfectly integrated.
Following the way of nature, natural resources, natural meaning
About 60, 000 square of the project land across Dazhangxi, we through a new combing line, to solve the traffic inconvenience caused by land and water alternation. For the 40m height difference between the north and south of the site, we choose to hide the landscape between the mountains and rivers, maximize the use and protection of the site’s original ancient trees and land texture, and integrate the natural resources such as mountains, forests, rocks, springs and other natural resources into the design.
Design pays attention to local materials, to achieve food, housing, line rely on Geling own ecological circulation system. And through “hearing”, “touch”, “smell”, “vision”, “feeling” all round mobilize the visitor’s nerve, make the person and the landscape each other blend symbiosis.
Inheriting the historical context of Geling, reproducing the Song Dynasty literati elegant
Landscape design is based on the current situation of land and the study of landscape context, fusion of Zen Buddhism, central Fujian, streets and alleys, No. 1, tea and other local culture, reproduction of the Song Dynasty literati’s quiet and elegant life and poetic dwelling.

桃园初现 Initial appearance
The interweaving and occlusal of the space is the precise expression of the designer’s emotion on the site. We divide the whole design into three plates, respectively spread to the south bank according to the “secret land boat”-“Green Forest quietness seek”-“Water Music Zen House” in turn.
The north entrance square is simple atmosphere, we mirror the landscape of Geling through the grille view wall, match the plain scenery stone and the plant, through the view distant mountain, the cloud fog, lets the visitor come to can feel the Qingyun small town like the poem like the artistic conception.
The road leading to the wharf is interspersed with the children’s play area and the view wooden trestle. The design pays attention to the interactive experience between people and the landscape, and devotes to building a “beautiful” and “fun” resort town.
秘境行舟 Secret land boat
Designers move the north wharf upstream, turn the disadvantage into good, transform “boat” into the interaction experience between man and nature, and infrequently deduce the “static, beautiful” landscape into a “dynamic, participatory” good case.
Under the fog, the mountains and lakes surrounded the cottage, and the boat passed through the Green Island and the Reed, giving off a warm and leisurely breath. Nature’s gentle brush strokes, dizzy tone, more like ink painting as poetic hazy.
绿林寻幽 Green Forest quietness seek
After getting off the boat all the way green verdant, site original bamboo forest, green plum forest is retained. Riparian and mountain rocks are built into retaining walls, abandoned fishing boats with mango grass, and the fishing culture of Geling’s heyday. Design from landscape to environment, try to respect the context of the site, through the establishment of different elements of connection and coordination to achieve the diversity of the landscape.
▼“会呼吸”的漂浮观景台 “Breathing” floating platform
Poetic and construction of the relationship in the design has a long history. The design is inspired by Mosby Loop to create a tension and ritualistic aerial platform. About 10 meters high observation platform series Panshan Road and sales center “floating” above the dense forest. Through the dense forest at the sight of lakes and mountains, people and nature blend, landscape panoramic view.
A mirror waterscape with a diameter of about 22 meters is cut inside the viewing platform. By repeatedly examining the proportion, width and spatial relationship, we finally use perforated aluminum plate and light to reproduce a picture of “thousands of miles mountain picture” in the water feature facade.
水乐禅居 Water music Zen residence
The selling center refines the landmark elements of the Song Dynasty architecture, the relationship between the scale and the color, and reproduces the charm of the ancient city of the Southern Song Dynasty. On this basis, the landscape continues the architectural style, using hydrophilic platform, small bridge, landscape and plants to reconstruct space, so the interaction between architecture and landscape is also achieved, showing a simple and elegant interest between landscape and landscape.
On the east side of the sales center are the shopping streets and academies with the style of the Song Dynasty. They are designed to use spring and hot spring resources to draw mountain springs according to the topography to digest the 10-meter site height difference, and the gurgling stream eventually flows into the mirror water in front of the sales center. Combined with static, deductive noise quiet, impetuous sink, luxury simple, modern elegant.

A line in the academy, a touch of shadow, are like Song ci, elegant and introverted, seems to recall the ancients’ thoughts on freedom, and at the same time, it is a kind of examination and reflection on the busy life of the city. The carefully designed water features are integrated with the famous Sanshan culture and the poetry of the Superior Yuan Dynasty, so that the Academy is not only a cold commercial space, but also the heritage of Geling Culture.

As Kant put it, “a direct interest in natural beauty is always a sign of kindness.” The design of Guangmu “listens to” the voice of the land, uses the extremely simple technique, molds the landscape Zen residence and the Taoyuan secret environment, and brings this kind of landscape between the story and the hot pillow of the life into the visitor’s life.
