LAURENT：Hongqiao is a world-class city group and the gateway and core of the Yangtze River Delta Metropolitan Coordinating Region. It is the new engine for Shanghai’s economic development in the future 20 years. The planning goal of Hongqiao is to establish an international, dynamic, cultural and fashion community with world influence. The project is located in the Xujing district of Hongqiao, Shanghai. It is a world-class transportation hub and one of the high-quality residential communities in Hongqiao Business District with international residential DNAs. The project utilizes the future pedestrian main entrance with architectures, sinking swimming pools and a house as the demonstration area. Absolutely, the display area will be the same as the delivery effect in the future. Therefore, the most important topic of this project is how to bridge with the future delivery function.
设计概念 Design Concept
青浦的印象是水与绿的交融，我们力求还原自然最简洁、最舒适的活力社区。虹桥的印象是穿梭在高速发展的摩登都市，我们欲要体验不凡的现代海派风情。设计欲以绿意 · 摩登为概念主题打造一个绿色、宜人的现代海派生活家园
Throughout the design, we have followed one logic: the future display area, namely the project area. We are not blindly pursuing stylized design, but consider it from the users’ perspective to create a community scenes that has reasonable spaces, a suitable scale, a strong sense of life, and a high-quality artistic vitality.
The impression of Qingpu is the blending of water and green spaces. We are dedicated to restoring the most simple and comfortable living community. The impression of Hongqiao is fast-growing modern metropolitan. We want to experience the extraordinary modern Shanghai style. In this way, we aimed to design a green and pleasant modern Shanghai style residence.

迎宾入口 Greeting Entrance
The entrance space, as the main pedestrians entrance in the future, is the starting point for the formation of people’s first visual impressions. How to create a noble and elegant atmosphere and the feeling of a noble life is the first question of design. The super-scale main entrance design is simple but marvelous, adding a small amount of metallic decoration in the beige marble stone to illustrate the extraordinary frontcourt. The center sculpture becomes a extra visual focus.
中心水院 Center Water Court
Disadvantage: The front space is enclosed by building No. 2, 3, 6. Dozens of meters scaffolds all-around bring a very poor experience; Building No.2 and No.3 offer the landscape a display surface width of only 20 meters. The depth is short as well; How to ensure the balance between the demand for the circulation in the demonstration area and the actual traffic load demand for the pedestrian entrances in the future?
Solution: Use the overhead floor of 2#, 3# building, push the visiting circulation to the margin of both sides, and reserve the space to maximize the frontcourt display space; Use the corridor to establish a clean site boundary, and cover the visual accessibility of the surrounding scaffolding. The function is the background and the background is the function. Viewing the scenery is also a scene; The atrium’s large water surface is divided into two sections, which minimizes the amount of waterscape demolition due to the fire exits in the later phase and ensures the balance of future demolition and delivery.
In the center of the court, a clear pond stands opposite to the sales office. Here, the greenery and life are cleverly introduced to create a fresh garden space. Our design conveys the attitude of the eco-city and reveals the idea of living close to life but higher than life. The blend of water and green restores the most concise and comfortable living community.
庭院空间 Courtyard Space
Stand up and come to the gallery. The recreation space in the corner creates a private space. In here, visitors can sit alone, or meet up with friends and enjoy the exclusive space of pleasure.
It is not about quantity, complexity, height or scale, but the ingenuity of a stone, a tree, a flower and a grass. In the court, the owners can experience the realm of “relax on bed, the thousand peaks are outside the Yugong Building. Who is sitting with me? The moon and the wind.”
下沉泳池 Sinking pool
Disadvantage: The backyard sinking pool has a small spatial scale and a deep depth. It lacks linkage with the north and south buildings. The relationship between these three is too rigid. How to deal with the “deep pit”?
▼后场泳池空间分析 The pool space analysis
Solution: Create a continuous gray space, and design a high-water curtain wall to connect the ground and sinking space to break the high wall and to create a pleasant microclimate with the blending of water and green. The large-scale swimming pool and spa pools frame a modern life at the largest scale, with a white gazebo seating area as a pause, reflecting the extraordinary modern Shanghai style. (Considering the relevant specifications and post-management and maintenance issues, the design eventually eliminated the water curtain wall.)
We hope to create a home with a natural and simple landscape for enjoying an artistic and high-quality life. Walk freely in the courtyard, watching the clouds scud across space. What we are doing is nothing more than returning to life and painting a picture of the real life.
