INLab :Xi’an, the ancient capital of the thirteen dynasties, still has a towering city wall. Each step corresponds to an ancient poem. All encompassing and inclusive, it has survived all the vicissitudes of life. Every stone slab and brick and tile are fixed and quietly staring at the non-stop flowing crowd in the modern city.

This case is located in Xi’an. As the first Jinlin series works of Newhope Real Estate entering Xi’an, it is an innovation and exploration of Oriental culture. The project is different from the magnificent style of the Tang Dynasty. It conveys the Oriental impression under the charm of the ancient capital in the dependence of forests and valleys, and constructs a modern residence like poetry and painting – “official and hidden, enter the temple and retreat into the mountains”. The demonstration area refers to the mountains, rivers, gullies and residential forests in other industries of Wangchuan to create a hermit’s place of “great seclusion in the world”. Living in the prosperous city, but also inhabiting the natural landscape.

大隐隐于朝 The best seclusion took place at court


As the first image of the project and the first facade connecting with the city, the front yard has the space conversion function of city and nature, noise and tranquility. Set off by the woods, I looked through the mottled shadows to the door of home. In terms of landscaping, it is hidden by stone and ancient trees. In terms of volume, we refer to the scale of the ancient city wall and build the gatehouse grid with Qin brick and Han tile. In terms of function, it is not only an indicative gate, but also has the function of municipal green corridor running through the top of the gate. Open the prelude to seclusion to nature, the bricks and tiles of Qin Dynasty and Han Dynasty change with light and shadow, bringing a colorful experience.


▼ 入口空间 The entrance space



The screen is extracted from the elements of “Qin brick and Han tile”, and the single grid facade adopts tile style,The two sections of the monomer are also designed with the pattern elements printed on Qin bricks, which are spliced alternately. The tiles form a vertical alternating standard section from top to bottom, and then the screen like standard sections are arranged horizontally to form a whole grid.

林壑敛暝色 The woods and the valleys presented the evening scene


Through the screen door, we come to the second sequence – the forest and gully are gathering and the clouds are falling in the evening. Floating bridges, pine trees and falling stones are used to create the scenery of the island. The bottom of the water uses a black water board to express “the gurgling of water”. Through the floating bridge, the waterscape is the fluctuation under your feet, and the good landscape is within your reach. To express China’s entry into the WTO and forgetting worries — walking from the screen of Chang’an to the depths of the forest and gully.



倒影入清漪 With the reflections on the clear water


After the construction, the sunken courtyard is the climax of landscape design in the demonstration area. Architecture and landscape inlay, and create the beauty of balance and compatibility in opposition. The landscape is surrounded by buildings and modern glass curtain walls. Living in the building, you can watch the multi-storey forests in square inches from different angles. At the same time, the landscape painting in front of you can also enter the ancient pavilion through the Chang’an screen corridor on both sides, or the unique cave like a garden in the forest and gully mountains and rivers, which flows into the garden through the moving line integrated with the landscape.

The grille on both sides is a horizontal folding structure simulating the screen painting “book survey map” of the Southern Tang Dynasty. It is also a joint R & D and design of INLab and Newhope according to the ancient window flowers and screens, and it is customized for the Jinlin series project in Xi’an for the first time. The grid adopts the design elements of the roof grid of Foguang temple in the Tang Dynasty for modern deduction. Each monomer is designed separately, and finally forms four styles, which are combined into a gradual standard section, so that different visual effects are presented from different perspectives, and gradually become transparent from both ends to the middle. The pace, light and shadow and sight bring infinite interest in refinement.



当轩对樽酒 Faced the window and had a drink


While completing the three-dimensional traffic transformation of space, the backyard is designed to use flowing springs to stack waterfalls and sit in ancient pavilions to show the sense that the square inch heaven and earth within the courtyard wall contains all phenomena, and use the sinking space to create the life intention of living around the land, enjoying living in the water and relaxing.

The ancient pavilion in the scenery also achieves the artistic conception of rich mountains and forests and getting their interests conveyed by this case. It also expresses the spiritual meaning of expressing affection for mountains and rivers. After looking for scenery and exploring the territory, pick up the level and go up to the leisure and quiet way home.

In the process of exploring this case, we can learn from classical gardens and various structural techniques, but no matter what style or style,we finally hope to convey the hidden state of life in this forest and gully dependence, and infect our modern urban life – going out in the day and returning at night, generation after generation.

Sitting in the pavilion, the ancient city Chang’an, which was originally worried about, was not on the spire of the wild goose pagoda, nor under the armor of the terracotta warriors and horses, but in the garden, in our daily life.
