Longting：The entrance breaks the mystery of “A Closed Door of the Grant Mansion” in the traditional house, but adopts a more simple and open way. Standing in front of the open door, the soft circular waterscape pops out, creating a kind of friendly home returning experience. On the other hand, the axisymmetric spatial pattern gradually sublimates people’s inner experience from the sense of affinity to the sense of dignity, which shows the unique ritualization of Oriental settlements.
Wisdom desires the roundness, and action requires solemn. In the square enclosed space, there is a smooth and peaceful water environment, which response to the Oriental Zen culture and life concept of “circular heaven and square earth”. Between hardness and softness is the complementary spirit of “Confucianism and Taoism” in Chinese traditional culture, and also hides the eternal thinking of the ‘worldly’ and the ‘un-worldly’, the philosophy of spirit and physical body.
▼入口细节设计 Entry details
When people turn around and stop in front of the door, the light casts a sparkling shadow of the bamboo forest but also recites the hidden landscape poetry in their hearts. Through the doorway, with the bamboo shadow dancing on both sides, and the stone standing still, the poetry of space is born with quiet clouds.

“Si Shui Gui Tang (Four Water Merges into the Hall)”, the enclosure of four sides by the architecture, is one of the representatives of the traditional Chinese architectural style, carrying the “unity of man and nature” in traditional Chinese culture. In the rain season, the water gathers from the eaves and walls on all sides. In southern china culture, it means the source of wealth, Feng Shui, and the good wishes of a family reunion.
▼空间细节 Spatial details
Turning into the lane of the house, in front of the entrance presents the white walls, grey tiles, lush trees, and gurgling water. In the overlapped different material layers and various textures, the space charm of traditional Jiangnan houses is inherited from inside to outside.
The building of the negotiation area stands on the water platform with the courtyard in the front. The courtyard’s typology is high in the West and low in the East with rich spatial changes. In form, it continues the appearance of a natural landscape but abandons the massive characters of a classical garden. Replaced with continuous lawn and waterscape, the design creates the appearance of “mountain on the left and water on the right, along the river and by the landform”.
From the waterside pavilion to the right, the white wall of the curved bridge in the bamboo forest as the background, the clear sound of the stone waterfall, the winding of the Chinese tallow become a watercolor painting beyond the world.
The water platform outside the negotiation area’s buildings is the transition space between the building and the landscape. In the sunken space, bamboo chairs and sofas are placed near the water. This natural medium makes people feel the free and broad-minded landscape spirit directly.
Waterside pavilions stand on the surface of the water, the beauty of artistic conception, secluded between a tree and a stone.The silhouette of waterside pavilion with unique modern oriental charm, reflected on the water surface, presents a quiet and elegant landscape mood.
On the side of the courtyard are forest springs, paths, and hills. In the tranquil forest, people can enjoy the bending stone path, stroll in the courtyard, and feel the green around, leisurely and cozy.
Life should be elegant and meaningful. This mansion gathers the traditional Chinese landscape artistic conception, which not only meets the daily recreation, fitness, walking, communication, and other modern life functions but also carries the lofty pursuit of the future international life quality.
Breaking the massive traditional Chinese style and delivering the international concept, the site is endowed with a broader vision in the direction of Zen, nature, culture to convey the “new international landscape” and the chant of modern life.
