T.R.O.P: terrains +open space & Weimar Group: Shaoxing is located in the south of the Yangtze River, known as Jiangnan, where one can get lost in the crossing alleys, bridges, canal network, and idyllic scenes appreciating itssimplicity and leisure.
Before starting landscape concept design, the first task of our team is to understand the uniqueness of Shaoxing, including the urban and geographical context, as well as its historical background. As designers, our love of Shaoxing is deep-seated in itsrelationship between building and canals, as well as the link between Shaoxinger and their town landscape. We love its architectural design. Every bridge, road, pavilion, and alley encourage people to interact with the river. Besides, we also love the local planting palette in Shaoxing and hope to integrate it into this project. Specifically, we love the way how ancient design can be integrated with the environment. We hope to create a fantastic waterfront project.

我们可以从水乡绍兴学到什么呢？What can we learn from the ancient watertown of Shaoxing?
When you catch our project, it feels like discovering an extraordinary architecture piece set on a supremely beautiful land island surrounded by rivers. To create a picturesque landscape, we must carefully consider three types of relationship – the relationship between architecture and site, people and landscape, as well as architecture and hydrology. These three relationships guide landscape design through the design process in the entire residential area of An Villa. Presenting a relationship between architecture and hydrology, the landscape of An Villa offers visitors a cultural excursion, besides serving as a sales gallery and clubhouse.
▽整体鸟瞰 Overall bird’s eye view
The character of the ancient house roof and water network endorses the main idea very much. The design team had got inspired in many ways by researching the watertown of Shaoxing. One is from architecture. The heritage roofs use the imbrex and tegula, overlapping roof tiles, to keep out rain and drain it efficiently. Drawing inspiration from this architectural technique, we create a water feature at the arrival court to facilitate the departure and arrival procedures. Moreover, the delicate roof structure not only captures the essence of the ancient roof but also highlights the dwelling history of Shaoxing. By creating a rain-like effect, this artistic installation becomes the pride and pleasure of Shaoxing architecture andcultural heritage.

Another inspiration is from the environment of Shaoxing. As we pay attention to the relationship between roof and water runoff, we see the way the roofs protect us from the rain and then lead the rain to the gutter and how they manage the rainwater in the oldtown. Now in the current city of Shaoxing, we have a lot of rain every year and sometimes we have floods. In this project, we try to have better rainwatermanagement. We don’t want to push all the rainwater that we got to become the burden of the city. If possible, we try to be 100% and keep the water within our island, or we treat it nicely before we release it to the island. It’s not the use of water; it’s more like rainwater management that we try to create in our landscape. That’s the landscape principle of the An Villa.

Children, who grow up in Jiangnan, can never forget the scene of rain hitting the eave. Every end of summer follows a rainy season. After dripping from eaves for a few days, the summer fades away swiftly. “Rain beating the eaves” carries the memory of the season for generations who live in Jiangnan.
However, the memory of Jiangnan should go further than just living in the childhood memories of every Jiangnanese. When rain hits the eaves, it is time to recurrence the space –recalling memories, recycling buildings, and reusing materials.
记忆循环-屋顶空间嫁接 Recalling Memories – Spatial collageof the roof
Grafting the roof of Shaoxing into the sunken courtyard is reuse of time. Both time and space are units of measurement. There are volume, light, shadow, and color in space; There is sound, taste, and touch in time. Memory can be retained and recycled. When the site is remodeled, the important “genetic memory” of”roof” is naturally grafted in.
居住循环-老建筑与新建筑缝合 Recycling Buildings- stitch old buildings onto new ones
The process of urbanization has pushed down most bungalows to build high-rises. This traditional southern residence with dark grey tiles and white walls can no longer keep up with the needs of the times in terms of internal use, but its roof space can be reused to form a new way of space use.The originally bird’s-eye view roof can be transformed into interesting gardens for people to climb and rest, so that urban people can once again experience the fun of going to the house and uncovering tiles. Stitching modern reinforcedcement with traditional roof and making “tradition” as the external extension of modern interior is an important step for people to return to nature.

材料循环-瓦片再利用，火山岩的使用，粗糙材料与精致材料的对比 Recycling Material- tiles and stones contrast
In terms of the tiles, although it is made from clay and is lack solid property, it can be stacked up in layers to become a huge roof. This low-key construction method just corresponds to the character and living form of southerners.

For bricks, bricks are stacked layer by layer, which is an old-fashioned construction method, staticand stable, and cannot be moved. But it is also easier to retain traces of time. However, in the actual construction process, it is found that the brick stake a long time to form traces of years. Therefore, the newly fired grey bricks lack some precipitation, so they are replaced with volcanic rock, which not only retains the collage texture of the bricks but also increases the richness of texture due to the different pore sizes on the volcanic rock surface.
▽火山岩石砖演绎老式的砖块，营造丰富的质感 Volcanic rock bricks interpret old-fashioned bricks and create a rich texture
For metal, a small amount of metal is added to increase the artistic conflict of texture contrast. This is also a metaphor for “new” and “old”. The tiles are roughand close, just like the environment in Jiangsu and Zhejiang when they lived as children; The steel plate is exquisite and cold, specifies the path and the location of the tree pit, and is serious and disciplined, just like the information civilization in modern society.

植物造景的“单元砖”” Brick module ” of Plant Landscaping
Like bricks, planting is also a medium to compose spaces. In planting design, designers want to utilizethe local plants to recall the sense of familiarity from people’s memory and tocreate a refreshing modern place. Each plant is a brick. Based on the local planting palette and climate of Shaoxing, TROP collaborated with Weimar, theconstruction drawing team, select several local plants as the landscape “brick module” to compose spaces, compliment architectures, as well as complete the overall experience.
The planting methods of the clubhous eand the front area are mainly ecological natural planting combined with exquisite spherical shrubs with a sense of sculpture, and then the space issupported by tall trees with a sense of spatial volume and graceful shape to make it rich, exquisite, ecological and colorful. The design hopes to create a Zen village south of the Yangtze River. The plants focus on the interesting natural village feeling of the south of the Yangtze River with exquisite, private, and luxurious original ecological ancient towns.
▽植物设计 Plant design
雨滴花园的自然主义种植 Naturalistic planting of raindrop Garden
Conceptualization of LDI Weimar landscape innovation Design.Although the rain is invisible, it falls with traces. The plant design team obtains space design inspiration from the misty rain and water drop condensation bead form in the south of the Yangtze River. Taking the natural planting method as the core, the round tortoiseshell Holly ball is selected as the performance of the whole raindrop condensation bead, combined with better upright plant varieties, such as flower leaf jade cicada, marijuana, Eupatorium Adenophora, milkweed, and some green filling plants, such as rosemary, Rhododendron, foxtail asparagus, blue snowflake, kidney fern, etc.
In terms of plant color, there is a green gradient transition with low saturation. There are no gorgeous flowering plant varieties here. The plant space is integrated within the green tile eaves of the building as a whole, which is exactly what we intended. In terms of planting methods, the flowering plants in the same period are controlled between 3-4 species, in order to achieve the seasonal beauty of the plant landscape incoherence and integrity. Drop of rain, the cycle of four seasons, the flora feels a thousand dreams, and the artistic impression is infinite”.

水景深化落地难点 Difficulties in deepening the landing of waterscape
结构优化前瞻性 Forward-looking structural optimization
Support the enclosure of external civil retaining wall; Plate beam combination of internal inclined structure; So as to form a bottom overhead structure with external reality and internal emptiness. This space can not only be used as a recycled water storage bin for an inclined roof water feature, but also realize the economic optimization of steel concrete consumption, and provide for underwater pipeline laying equipment transportation during construction; Provide accessible working space for daily maintenance.
▽施工过程 Construction process
多渠道补水Multi-channel water replenishment
Continuing the architectural design Language. The main waterscape is composed of two parts, the inclined surface, and the recessed wall. A water make-up ditch is added under each converted ridge tile to ensure the continuity of internal and external falling water surface, hidden beautifully.
▽斜屋面水景施工过程 Construction process
斜面瓦雨水收集 Inclined tile rainwater collection
The upper and lower layers of concave-convex tiles are laid in a staggered manner, which enriches the rhythm of the back of the mountains in the south of the river, and contains “solemnity and silence in nature”. Concave tiles can drain the rapid water diversion, and the rainwater gushes from the stacked tiles, showing the effect of “completely natural rainwater collection”, with a shower of rain and a touch of poetry.
▽斜面瓦雨水收集施工过程 Construction process
In the design, the eaves, ridges, and waterscape of the water village in Jiangnan are integrated. Walking in it is like walking by the river of the ancient town, and the roof pours onpeople, bringing a cultural atmosphere. The rhythm of space is rhythmic, and the opening and closing relationship of space is formed by using landscape walls, corridors, and plants. From the penetrating view of the space to the grandeur and vitality of the front courtyard, and then to the Zen tranquilityof the sunken courtyard, several spaces form different space atmospheres. Walking along the road, the scenery is different.
