Relying on the layout of the building, the entire community adopts a spatial sequence of one bridge, four courtyards, three gardens, and five gardens. Space is designed in a progressing layer and unfolds step by step, presenting a rich visual feast in front of the viewers with a clear context. The portal, four courts that welcome guests, the unique flyover that runs through the community, and the three gardens with distinctive themes and full of fun, and the five gardens with winding paths are cleverly integrated, interconnected, and relatively independent, and open the creative pattern of an orderly connection between a modern park and a private courtyard. Strolling through space, the rich spatial transformation not only shows the poetic antique flavor but also presents the fashionable and vigorous rhythm of the times, which is a new interpretation of the modern Chinese homeland in the Gediao Songjian.
▼空间格局分析 Spatial pattern analysis
The flyover system that runs through the entire community is a breakthrough in the landscape design of Pine North. This conceptual idea proposed by the Taida Group in the early stage, with the joint efforts of the design team, is shown as the most core structural skeleton of the entire district. It not only inherits the unique entrance portals of the community, but also carries three distinctive public houses, providing residents with convenient three-dimensional transportation methods, forming a multi-dimensional hierarchical structure, and bringing a new vision and diverse experience of a linear park to the community.
庭之礼 The Courtesy of the Court
According to the setting of the community entrance based on the overall architectural plan, the four courtyards are presented as unique portal images and ceremonial spaces.

入画 — 境由此生 Walking Into the Painting, the environment is born here
The north entrance serves as the starting point of the entire flyover system and is also the main pedestrian and vehicular entrance of the community. The hotel-style cantilevered lobby entrance and the design of separating the flow of people and vehicles form the first memory of homecoming.
The spacious front plaza of the welcoming interface, the green island landscape and the traffic diversion of the vertical screen style grid, and the underground parking entrance behind the hidden grid are disadvantages that turned into a gainful design strategy to enhance the visibility and a sense of noble ritual.
The shape of the door captures the large eaves of the Han and Tang Dynasties. The atmosphere is elegant and solemn. The overall color is dark coffee, imitating the effect of red copper, which is a low-key luxury, and describing the warm temperament of the residence.
Passing through the leisurely and tranquil bamboo groves on both sides, people slowly enter the north courtyard inside the community.
The north courtyard forms a strong sense of “inner courtyard” through the enclosure of the courtyard gate. Two clusters of tea leaf maple in front of the courtyard are interlaced with the main hall of the community. The elevated hall fully demonstrates the dignity of the residents.

▼庭前对植二株丛生茶条槭 Two clusters of tea leaf maple in front of the courtyard
The theme landscape design “one pond and three mountains” is set up facing the wall to form the veins of the mountains. Looking back to the north side in the main hall, the shape of the mountains is looming, meaning “searching for mountains” and “watching mountains”.
The sound of spring water on both sides is integrated to increase the auditory experience. The seats around the hall are set up to provide a leisurely communication place for residence. The living room surrounded by the sound of gurgling water starts a journey to home for soul-washing.
As the “back garden” of the north courtyard and the inner courtyard of the entrance, and the landscape hall, Tea Valley is divided into three levels from the perspective of space. The 60-meter-long corridors on both sides extend from the main hall to form a strong sequence of rituals. In the end, a two-story theater building is used as the bottom scene.

Different from other landscapes, the “Chinese Tallow Forest” is a pure view. It has a sunken anticorrosive wood leisure platform, and the sunken space makes people’s participation more interesting.
People watch each other friendly, and they become the scenery in each other’s eyes. At the same time, the node-set of the sunken space considers the line-of-sight penetration relationship with the adjacent courtyard gates of Ouyuan and Changyuan, thus enriching the visual experience.
Passing through the prologue of the atrium, the landscape replaces the water with gravel. The Water Hall is also the real starting point of the sky bridge. Starting from the entrance to the north side of the community, different plants grow upon and under the corridors. People walk under the trees but walk among the trees, experiencing the feeling of walking through the dense forest. The experience of landscape viewing is gradually unfolded.
The sky bridge that runs through the community is a unique and attractive creative design between the pine trees, which brings a unique surprise experience to the community.
▼天桥分析 Bridge analysis
天桥 — 浮桥林间 Flyover, the Bridge and The Forest
The sky bridge connects a rich and diverse community landscape elements closely together, which is placed in the forest like a floating link. Combined with the entrances and exits, the walking path is equipped with five convenient passages between private houses and three public groups. From north to south, combined with the fire passages and building bodies, the gallery bridges are raised or lowered. The form presents a sense of ups and downs, winding and crisscrossing.
People walk into the park and they feel the changes of view through movement in each landscape. Every day they visit the park to appreciate the different scenery and interpret the possibilities of different stories.
The sky bridge and the corridors extend and intersperse with various scenery walls, porches, and leisure facilities to present a colorful spatial evolution. They complement the surrounding landscape, bringing elegance, and lively, classical, and modern visual enjoyment to provide residents with multiple levels of walking experience.
Partially enlarged landscape nodes are related to “yuan” and “yuan”, such as the “Sishui Hall” and “Tea Valley” that are visually linked with the northern courtyard, and the “stacked terraces” that are ingeniously integrated with the Kangle Garden; The “Panshan Mountains” echoing the Quyuan, and the “Pine Waterfall” that penetrates the real and virtual of the garden, and the “caves” that separate the commercial and residential space.
The bridge deck is made of reinforced concrete. The sides and bottom of the bridge are made of imitation fair-faced concrete, which reflects a strong sense of modern industrial style. Concave and convex moldings on the side of the bridge enrich the side textures. The upper seat position guides people’s sight and presents the initial memory of the adjacent garden. People can experience the multiple perspectives of the courtyard that trigger people’s next round of interest to search and explore.
In terms of visual experience, because of the connection of sky bridges, the gardens between the buildings on both sides present different external forms. One side is a modern and simple fragrance garden and the other side is a leisurely grass cottage, and a rockery with high mountains and flowing water. On one side is a modern and simple mountain-shaped silhouette wall, and on the other side is a Japanese-style temple with bamboo forests. Classical and modern styles are interspersed and blended, harmoniously and symbiotically, naturally and smoothly under the effect of the bridge link.
The two sides of the bridge are under the cover of the main tree species of Paulownia and American Red Maple. Visitors sometimes are walking on the ground corridor, listening to the singing of the waterfall, sometimes are watching through the treetops. they can rest on the terrace in the forest or sitting in the morning dew in the tea forest. People and the sky bridge draw a long picture of walking in the forest.
The walking path of the flyover shows a bright rhythm through the arrangement of sequence-guided flower boxes and wooden grids, which enriches the walking experience and the visual effects of high-rise overlooks.
There are two different worlds on and under the bridge. Under the bridge, the landscape creates a special stage. The rich design of borrowed scenes and opposite scenes make each scene no longer a single picture, presenting a three-dimensional rich, patchwork spatial effect. On the bridge, the visitors change roles and become the scenery in the eyes of the people under the bridge.
As a result, the community landscape has become more integrated and inclusive. The Integration of architecture and landscape has become more multidimensional, free from the constraints of space and time.
苑之趣 The Fun of Gardens
The landscape design has designed three distinct themed public spaces for the community from the perspective of overall planning. Tinglin Garden, Kangle Garden, and Xiangfen Garden can be grouped with a covered bridge to form a diversified and multi-level three-dimensional community park, which is also a unique characteristic of landscape planning in this project.
▼“三苑”分析 Three distinct themed public spaces analysis
康乐苑 — 全龄乐园 Kangle Garden, all-age paradise
The Kangle Garden is the largest public activity space in the community. There is a spacious activity space that is rare in conventional residential community design. It meets the needs of large communities for outdoor sports fields. The all-aged site design provides a variety of possibilities for the resident’s life.

The east side uses the height difference of the sky bridge to extend into the spacious children’s activity area in a stepped stage manner.
Derived from the creativity of the colorful facial makeup of Peking Opera, starting from the climbing wall on the west side, the texture of the wall pattern naturally flows onto the ground paving, constructing a vibrant three-dimensional playground. The activity facilities are novel and abundant, which divide the activity needs of the young, the middle-aged, and the old.
The connection between the ADA access on the south side and the oval pavement and curved benches on the northwest side expands the visual range and the use of the entire site. At the same time, here is also a fun place specially designed for children to run freely. They can play skateboard or ride a bicycle, completely liberating their nature.
On the one hand, the scenery wall connected with the ramp divides the boundary between the public and private courtyards hierarchically. On the other hand, it also blocks the noise of children’s activities for the residents, reflecting the design’s intention to pay attention to the feelings of residents’ life.
The cantilevered platform breaks the straightness of the wall, and at the same time forms a warm opposite view to the large stage of the Kangle Garden. It is an excellent observation point and offers a panoramic view of the entire south-facing Kangle Garden.
The dislocation of the overhanging platform translates into different spatial feelings. The design becomes more interesting.
The characteristics combination of the flyover and the children’s activity area brings an experience like stage and auditoriums and provides an invisible experience design for the daily activities of the community. During the small concert on the national holiday, the happy dancing of children in the dance pool pushes people’s emotional experience to a climax. The audience upon the stage was immersed in the cheerful rhythm of the music. Everyone in it can feel in the garden. This is the way to start garden life. When the stage lights cast on the wall of the building and the sound of music reverberates between the buildings, the beautiful memory of that moment is deeply imprinted in the hearts of everyone. This is also the best gift to the community residents from Taida Group and YAS Design.
香氛苑 — 花香漫语 Xiangfen Garden, flower fragrance and people’s whisper
Xiangfen Garden is a botanical garden corresponding to the Panshan Mountains on the flyover. From west to east, it presents a three-stage layout. Exquisite corridors and comfortable water boots, together with the lotus pond from the first courtyard for enjoying fresh lotus fragrance. The scenery walls, resting structures, and simple flower planting areas constitute the second garden with romantic floral fragrance. The modern rhythmic vegetable and fruit planting area has created a third garden that harvests the sweet and fruity fragrance, which strengthens the interaction between community residents and the environment.
▼香芬苑空间布局分析 Xiangfen garden analysis
The corridors and bridges on the west side of the Xiangfen Garden visually extend the space and use the lotus root screen as the background to transform the courtyard space.
The sunken leisure boot is bathed in sunlight. The four apricots float on the mirrored waterscape, forming an opposite frame with the sunken space and the leisure seat. When the spring comes, the petals fall on the water, adding a flowing beauty to space.
Whether it’s a pleasant afternoon or a sunny day, reading a book or a newspaper, or watching a drama lazily on the seat. people can enjoy the truest and beautiful portrayal of courtyard life.
The second section of the courtyard is mainly planted with perennial flowers. The spice mix with aster, Fendai, Chaowu grass, evening primrose, and other varieties. According to the effect of different seasons of flower colors, the designer creates romantic and warm flower fields. The evening primrose and the morning fog grass echo each other, the aster and the pink daisy attract the bees and butterflies. Under the sunlight, this misty sea of flowers builds a romantic atmosphere.
The modern-style flower structure on both sides serves as visual stops for viewing the flower field, weakening the viewing distance of the fire passage to enlarge the spatial perception. The pure white flower room and flower structure will inadvertently lock people’s sight.
The flower house intends to provide the residents with a place for communication in planting, growing, and exchanging flowers. The simple rattan woven chairs are integrated with the flower house and the flower structure. All the setting of the scene weaves a beautiful dream of garden life. One day in the future, witnessed by the sea of flowers and pure white flower houses, a dream wedding will be held here. On a pleasant afternoon, a young mother takes her children on a picnic in the bright sunshine and makes a pot of tea. Three or two friends come here to talk. The wind blows the waves, and the fragrance floats.
One pool and three mountains are expressed with modern craftsmanship, scattered among the gravel dry creeks, which can be used as resting stools or modern artworks.
This is a meeting room for communication between neighbors, warm and quiet. The left white space leaves a vision of the future life. This vision requires the participation of the residents. Different from the liveliness of Kangle Garden, Xiangfen Garden is a quiet and comfortable place.
松间书院 — 多元文化交流中心 Pine Academy, multicultural Exchange Center
Tinglin Garden, a collection of courtyards that continue from the demonstration area, transits and progresses from openness to semi-openness to private courtyards. The halls connected by the corridors of the central core landscape area are also a concentrated reflection of the landscape of the main area.
On the west side is the Sishui Hall that connects to the sky bridge. With these exquisite courtyards, Pine Academy can become a clubhouse, an art exhibition, lectures, reading, and borrowing place in the future, and continues to provide community residents with high-quality services.
园之隐 The Hidden Garden
As private houses, the whole district has designed five relatively independent poetic landscaped gardens that can be connected with “bridges” and “gardens”. According to the characteristics of different houses, the classic space pattern of Tuisi Garden, Ouyuan, Jichang Garden, Zhanyuan, and the “Curved Water Flowing” was used as the core feature of different houses. The five themed plants, bamboo, lotus, peach, maple, and orchid are presented in the details as the exclusive pattern of each garden, which implies the different temperaments of different gardens, allowing community residents to experience the poetry and painting brought by classical gardens at their doorsteps.
▼“五园”分析 Five gardens analysis
Each residential garden presents a multi-level spatial pattern with a complete structure. The porch space not only serves as a ceremonial space for garden entry but also connects to the public space, allowing the five private gardens to become a whole with the entire landscape. The main garden reproduces the graceful and comfortable classic pictures of various famous gardens through modern materials and craftsmanship. The ancient naming inheritance adds a strong humanistic atmosphere. The auxiliary garden space is either exquisite or quiet, which is similar to the main garden. Space complements each other and enriches the spatial levels. The garden space derived from the form of ink and wash makes the garden more leisurely. The residential living room space designed by the fire-fighting highland has created a second-layer ceremonial space for the community residents. The ingenious garden wall treatment method is used to make the landscape of a changeable form to become the opposite scene of the entry lobby. These spaces are either connected by paths or infiltrated by sightlines. Different residential gardens present the spatial features of classical gardens, such as the suppression and openness, the big in the small, changes of the scenery with different steps, and the winding path. The integration of the simple design language and the detailed presentation of cultural symbols further let the life in Pine North hide in the hustle and bustle of the city and find a pure land of soul.
Ouyuan, as the smallest garden of the five, is located between the tiny space in the enclosed places of the high-rise buildings. It is inspired by the waterscape on the east side of Suzhou “Ouyuan” to construct the core spatial relationship, encountering a leisure time here.
▼偶园布局分析 Ouyuan spatial arrangement
▼偶园鸟瞰 Aerial view of Ouyuan
The garden gate with classic charm is located on the side of “Tea Valley”. Outside the gate is a long corridor, and inside the gate is a garden full of mirrors.
The lotus-themed ground reliefs are derived from the classic landscaping methods in traditional gardens, which is an important site node. The “Koi Pond” is located on the east side. With the porch, gallery, and pavilion behind, the stage depicts the depth of the three-dimensional space and expands the visual imagination of the garden.
Following the reflection of the water surface, “Wangyue Pavilion” stands beside the pool. The modern and simple style incorporates the classical type of “beauty relying”. Adjacent to the cascading waterscape, people watch the moonlight and beautiful landscapes at the night.
With the guidance of the corridor, “Wuai Pavilion” has become the visual focus of the whole garden. With the reshaping of modern materials, the Chinese-style pavilion presents the traditional and inner appearance of the times, inheriting the spatial interweaving of the east and the west.
The “Shanshui Room” is inspired by “the drunkard is not aiming for the wine, but the mountains and rivers.” As the largest hall of the group, outdoor tables and chairs are set up for tourists to rest and stay. On the west is the dry landscape with Wuai Pavilion as the main background, forming a mutual borrowed scene between the main structures. To the east, a pocket courtyard is used as a transitional medium for sheltering the substation houses. Space is fully excavated and used.
Due to the large need for fire-fighting in high-rise buildings, a series of “outdoor living room” spaces show up in the gardens of Pine North. The high ground is designed as a small ceremonial plaza in front of each building from the exquisite floor coverings. A series of scenery walls with door leaf shapes penetrates the scenery into the main view of the building lobby. The garden path also spreads out, linking the scenery inside and outside the garden.
Wuyuan, as the largest private courtyard between high-rise buildings, is connected to the north courtyard system of the sky bridge on the east side. It is adjacent to the largest public garden “Kangle Garden” on the south side and is a trip to the secret back garden on the north side. The landscape design cluster between the buildings presents a three-part layout, consisting of two Zen gardens, one east, and one west, in the core courtyard.
▼悟园布局分析 Wuyuan spatial arrangement
▼悟园鸟瞰 Aerial view of Wuyuan
The transition from public space to private space takes the form of the courtyard door porch, passing through the ceremonial space of the courtyard gate, facing the bottom scene of the combination of virtuality and reality, penetrating the garden cave outside the courtyard, and strengthening the extension of the spatial hierarchy.
The spatial layout of the core courtyard is inspired by the “Tuisi Garden” in Tongli. Following the ancient name of the Tusi Garden, the waterscape is surrounded by pavilions, halls, boats, corridors, and other structures. The corridors are surrounded by pools to form a meandering tour route. People walk through with a changing scene and enjoy a quiet and leisurely stay here. When the morning breeze blows, the ripples on the surface of the water and the reflections against it bring the coolness of the water into visitor’s hearts.
Looking from the Tuisii Hall to the “Naohongyike”, people can find it like a boat lifted by a lake rock. The high and low levels of interlocking plants form a changeable depth of field in the line of sight. The bright lights are dotted, warming the residents and making a home here.
A wide viewing platform is set up in front of the hall. A pool of clear water reflects the scenery, presenting a comfortable space experience of “dappled shadows hanging aslant over the clear shallow water”.
Shuixiang Pavilion, cantilevered on the water, overlooks the reflections on the water surface. The water is moving and the wind is cool. The view from different perspectives is all scenic. Here is the best place to stay.
The red boat is interpreted as a sunken space, like a sinking boat that half immersed in the water. Sitting in it and watching the gurgling water, people can see the reflection of clouds floating. The static building has a dynamic posture now.
Mianyun Pavilion is located at a high point. The concept is taken from Liu Yuxi’s poem. “If you want to know the coldness of flowers you must be a man who sleeps on a rock.” Climbing up to the pavilion and playing chess, visitors can enjoy an isolated life here.
Passing through a leisurely trail, traveling to a corner, people can enjoy the spacious lawn here. Space is left blank, and through the half-covered door leaf, the prelude to the scenery opens.
The atrium enclosed by the cloister is adjacent to the Shuixiang Pavilion on the east side. The Qinyin Room on the west side is the main viewing node. The wooden platform under the tree-lined arbor provides leisure tables and chairs. At different times, the combination of twilight and wood color has the charm of natural affinity.
The gallery frame adopts a dark gray steel structure with high-grade wood color to create a relaxed and lively tone atmosphere. The branches and leaves are set against the wooden grille, reflecting each other and the beauty of light and shadow.
Walking through the leisurely bamboo forest trail, people will enter the Zen-like courtyard space on the west side. There are outdoor tea seats in the corridor and the background screen with poetry. The antique charm matches the modern and lightweight corridor. To the east is a pine-and-bamboo scroll inspired by Zen. Against the electric station, the depth of sight is once again elongated.
On the east side of the Zen courtyard, the parking space for U-turn at the end is built on a height difference, with scenery stones and sculptural plants, forming a three-dimensional viewing and resting space. Inside the scenery wall, green plants are used to create either open or private spaces. People are strolling on the interspersed trails in the garden under the shade of trees with leisure and comfort.
The centripetal paired building entry method strengthens the psychological guidance from the porch to the courtyard. The framing wall matches plants of different layers to form an extended layered picture frame, which makes people feel like walking in a painting. The garden becomes different when people participate and interact with space.
Different entrance halls form a variety of contrasts. The design sets up grids or uses barriers to separate the space. The pedestrian circulation shows a long three-dimensional picture scroll.
The back garden interprets the spatial form of splashing ink, and the curved artistic texture flows naturally. The winding retaining walls and paths provide the residents with a relaxing place after a meal.
Changyuan is located in the western-style house area. The long and narrow spatial pattern is the key site feature of architectural planning. Inspired by the space design of “Jichang Garden” in Wuxi, from west to east, it presents a six-stage sequence here. It is the most classical garden in Pine North expressing the comfort and gentleness of the “fresh breeze”.
▼畅园布局分析 Changyuan spatial arrangement
▼畅园鸟瞰 Aerial view of Changyuan
The west entrance of Changyuan is invisibly connected to the ground pedestrian system of Flyover Park. Under the eye-catching guidance of the ground paving, the gate, palace lanterns, flower beds, and scenery walls give this axis a high-standard homecoming ceremony.
Through the small plaza composed of four magnolia trees, a framed screen opens the prelude to the garden. Through the window, the stone is scattered in the distance and the mountains are undulating. Take a closer look at the details. The Song painting “Ten Thousand Pines and Winds” is engraved among the stones. In the miniature space, the waterfalls depict the beautiful mountains and rivers.
The place where the garden roads on both sides of the framed screens meet is the main focus of the park on the west side of Changyuan – the “Courtesy Auditorium”. The solemn academy court contains an elegant literary spirit. The ground cover and the lawn together outline the symbol of the “lake and pond”. Winding through the “Seven Star Bridge” to the pavilion in the distance, the mood becomes suddenly clear.
“Xianyun Pavilion” is located at the junction of the west side of the park and the core main park. It is an important node for the sightline of the garden space from the east to the west. The landscape architectural style begins to show a strong ancient charm here. Under the joint construction of steel structure, sloping roof grille, and double eaves, the ancient building is stretched out, and the wood material is embedded to give a pleasant temperature. Leaning on “Beauty Relying” for a nap, with the branches and leaves of peach trees quietly stretching, people can have a sweet dream here.
The “Yupan Gallery” draws from the “Xianyun Pavilion” to the east of the “Woyun Hall”, like a landscape building community with arms attached to the main courtyard. In the corridor, with the looming top lights, the garden is full of green. The grass grows with the flowing water.
In the leisurely courtyard, the Woyun Hall’s wide eaves pay tribute to the dignified and generous aesthetics of ancient buildings, and the exquisite floor carvings echo the rules of respect for treating guests and friends.
Here is the living room of the whole garden, with green waves to the west, and the scenery of “mountain forest” to the east. On sunny days, it is the best place for a cup of tea for friends.
To the east of “Woyun Hall”, the gravel pools gather all the garden elements and depict a freehand painting of mountain streams and waterfalls. “Hanbi Pavillion” stands elegantly on the mountain road built by the tortoise-patterned stone, which is the key of this picture.
The east entrance of Changyuan adopts a staggered and undulating landscape wall community to create a gateway to the garden. The screen with a swastika pattern abstractly interprets the courtyard’s screen wall culture. The white wall and brick wall are well-matched, taking into account the classic elegance and the stability of etiquette. The use of red bricks on the ground not only breaks through the tradition but also echoes the paving characteristics of the building’s facade.
Changyuan connects the flyover park and the main loop road of the community through two portals showing the ritual system of the east and the west. It also set up small and exquisite auxiliary garden gates between the bungalows to satisfy the convenient route organization between the residential garden and the community environment. At the same time, a complete garden boundary is constructed in a true sense.
Ruyuan, the second garden in the western-style house district, has an almost identical spatial pattern with Changyuan and pays tribute to the “Zhanyuan” layout. In contrast to Chang Yuan’s condensed display of Chinese gardens, Ru Yuan adopts another important oriental gardening style, Japanese gardens, as the spiritual expression of Zen artistic conception.
▼如园布局分析 Ruyuan spatial arrangement
▼如园鸟瞰 Aerial view of Ruyuan
The west entrance of Ruyuan continues from the important node “Pine Waterfall” in the southern section of Flyover Park. In the background of the bamboo forest behind the white curtain, there are bamboo paths connected by sleepers. In the transition and exploration, the misplaced pine and cypress planting boxes present the garden vividly. The tile texture of the back scenery wall symbolizes the vivid portrayal of The waterfall.
In the core area of Ruyuan, the architectural combination of pavilions, corridors, and courtyards consistent with Changyuan serves as the key landscape skeleton.
The use of gray flat tiles and wood color structure allows the building under the same form to show a completely different style, giving a slightly distant sense but gentle and delicate atmosphere.
“Jingmiao Hall” is a concentrated expression of this style. The hollow door let the beauty of light and shadow spread all over the space in the afterglow during the sunset. The garden space penetrates the interior. People can enjoy a quiet and leisure time during their stay.
The elevated “Sunset Corridor” makes the side of the corridor become a different kind of resting and viewing place.
Here, dry river gravel gathers into rivers, lakes and seas, and mountains and islands, which are presented in different frame compositions in different directions.
“Tingyu pavilion” has an excellent viewing platform. Leaning on a railing, people can fully enjoy the profound Zen environment of pine island and stone waterfall, and let the feeling of leisure and comfort come to their heart.
Ruyuan continues the setting of the Changyuan. The small and exquisite auxiliary garden gates are matched with the arch bridges in the garden to create an interesting small axis against the scenery.
The Flower Hall serves as a spatial bridge between the main garden and the west garden, transforming the classical and modern forms of the dry stream.
The flower hall is made of solid wood with simple lines. It is located between the east and west courtyards and plays the role of connecting the past and the future. On the west side of the Flower Hall is the classic Japanese dry landscape. Instead of rivers, seas, and clouds, sandstones are selected. Instead of mountains and islands, stones are designed to represent the key elements of nature. The landscape has endless changes according to the core concept. The east side of the Flower Hall is separated by flower windows. Thus the inside space and outside space of the flower hall are isolated and infiltrated with each other. The “Starry Sky” outside the hall is made of fluorescent stone mixed with gravel and glue stone to create an exquisite and winding pavement, which makes a pattern as the Milky Way landing on the ground. The stars of the universe are set in the courtyard in the form of three tall cherry blossom trees. When the flowers bloom, they shine like the sun, bright and dazzling.
The west entrance of Ruyuan also continues the construction method of the Changyuan porch scenery wall. The tiles create the gradation of the virtual and the reality of the screen wall. The well-designed frame scene has an implicit expression that attracts travelers to explore and move forward.
Quyuan is located in the southwestern area of Pine North. The staggered layout makes it the most special high-rise residence in the district. The entire garden introduces the allusion of “Curved Water Flow” which is laid out as a space display of flowing clouds and water under the guidance of the core element of “water”. At the same time, different houses also present distinctive individuality. The shape of the building creates multi-level interspersed and permeated spaces, creating a rich sense of sight changes and experience.
▼曲园布局分析 Quyuan spatial arrangement
▼曲园鸟瞰 Aerial view of Quyuan
The north entrance courtyard of the Quyuan is connected from east to west to the south side of the Kangle Garden. The classic layout of the classical garden screens makes this an ingenious transition between public places and private gardens. The metal poem scenery wall of “The “Orchid Pavilion” serves as a picture scroll of the whole garden, opening the preface to the garden.
“Bamboo Valley” is the most confined house in the Quyuan. The setting of the misty rain corridor integrates the fragmented green spaces outside the climbing surface and the power distribution room. Through the bamboo forests, the functional houses are appropriately decorated.
“Curved Water Flow” is the core space of the Quyuan, and the concept of “water” is presented here as the most agile interpretation of the dry stream.
The half-enclosed Huimeng Corridor forms a mirrored relationship with the pavement. With the “Bamboo Valley” in the north and the “Langqing Maolin” in the south, the sequence of bamboo and wood grilles enhances the visual length of the corridor.
Looking east from the “Huimeng Corridor”, the winding stream leads the sight to the “Changyong Hall”. The visual impression of the thatched roof implies Tao Yuanming’s pastoral life.
The side view on the east side of “Changyong Hall” is a door-frame scenery wall, where the concept of “water” is interpreted as a mountain stone waterfall becoming an important visual focus of the Flyover Park, and an ingenious linkage between the interior and exterior of the Quyuan.
The climbing field of Quyuan continues the “outdoor living room” series of Ouyuan and Wuyuan, deducting a different painting scene.
The dry stream gravel is presented as a melodious song in the “Langqing Maolin”, flowing to the “Maolin Pavilion” and “Yunmeng Pavilion” under the verdant green shade.
The flexible curved texture reflects the rhythm of nature. The gravel belt is turned into seawater here, echoing the “green island in the sea”, making the courtyard full of remote and lively natural rhythms. The exquisite courtyard gate divides the inside and outside, creating a unique viewing experience of movement and different sceneries.
The landscape design of the Pine North continues the “poetic garden concept” and “courtyard complex” of the Gediao Chinese series. It does not adhere to traditional shapes and models, but incorporates modern aesthetic appeal, and uses new concepts, new techniques, and new materials to blend and collide the classicism with the modern, allowing the owners to wander in the leisurely and calm Chinese garden. It can “make those who live to forget the old, those who live, forget the rules, and those who visit, forget the scrolls”. This is also the living experience created by Pine North Gardens. Relying on the planning and layout of the building and the attributes of the groups, the space personality of the “five gardens” is created, and the courtyard is extended into each inter-building group, presenting different thematic characteristics in a delicate and winding shape, and strengthening the difference of the courtyard expression. Each courtyard pursues a comfortable living experience, and sets the nodes of the landscape from a human perspective, presenting it as an existence that can be touched at hand.
A community becomes interesting due to the participation of people. Whether it is a sunken space or a three-dimensional space of a sky bridge, to see and be seen, into or out of the space, the residents walking in the garden all become the scenery in each other’s eyes. With warmth, they deepen the goodwill between each other, and the garden became lively and interesting due to the participation of people.
A warm community uses space to integrate the seasons. The beauty of light and shadow and the warmth of the neighborhood are added into the garden. Walking casually, people encounter small surprises inadvertently at corners, thoroughly washing away the bustle of the outside world. people can feel that time has slowed down when entering the park, returning to the simplest beauty of life.
It is a community without boundaries. Communication between people has no boundaries, breaking the shackles between people in life. Whether the owner of the park or the guests, they can have a different kind of contemplation here. The garden becomes the emotional resonance between people. Plants and pavilions have no boundaries. The garden grows over time, and everything around it is in a state of integration. Space is no longer an icy, otherworldly ornamental landscape. There is no boundary between the landscape and the building. The echo of the ground paving and the extension of the building and the natural connection between the landscape and the building both bring a warm life at the courtyard scale to the residents.
