项目背景 Project background
The project is located in the southern China of Danyang High-tech Zone, which is an officially-planned new urban center. The nearby traffic is convenient with well-designed planning and supporting facilities. However, the overall living environment in Danyang is relatively outdated. The majority of the residential landscape designs are a traditional and luxurious style which are full of complex and redundant design elements. We hope to implement a project in different directions here as the wind vane of residential real estate in the future.
景观设计定位 Landscape design positioning
Design positioning is transferred and upgraded from the traditional style to contemporary style. Starting from the dimensions of function, emotion, and spirit, we re-export new circle relationships, return to the family, return to the origin, and enhance the taste and style.
重点思考 Key Questions
In Danyang, where the industrial culture is well-known, how to interpret a landscape project in terms of locality?How to seamlessly connect tradition and modernity to deliver new landscape needs?The contemporary needs of modern communities, what are the key points to capture that are more meaningful to the local area?How to “continuously” interact with the future main area in the demonstration area to permanently preserve and reshape multifunctional landscape places?
景观愿景 Landscape vision
The fusion of tradition and modernity is a journey through nature, following the waterway and chasing light.
景观策略 Landscape strategy
The water line runs through the whole site plan, interpreting the history of Danyang’s prosperity due to the water. The mirror-like water courtyard in the front field reflects the sky, creating a broad and quiet space. Art sculptures light up the fashion atmosphere. The backfield tends to be lively by a huge amount of planting and multi-level water features. Natural techniques help to realize the switching of different spatial feelings.
涟漪空间，一幕幕绽放 Rippling space is blooming
第一幕 —— 觅影问踪 既是城市橱窗，也是一幅朦胧的画作
The first scene – Follow the trace,a city window and a hazy painting
The flower sea of Eco-Optics Valley with the undulating terrain created by modern techniques faces the municipal roads, being a prologue to the city.
The surrounding environment has a poor atmosphere. To enhance the experience of the internal space and the visibility of the external urban interface and to complete the presentation of the landscape, we use a continuous virtual wall and structures between urban roads and buildings. This strategy strengthens the boundary and gives the space the agility and mysterious feelings by light and shadow.
▼城市界面演化过程 Urban interface evolution process
The main pedestrian entrance is close to the eco-valley. The rich vertical hierarchical relationship fully showcases the light and shadow. Accompanied by the sound of the gurgling spring, visitors can feel the mysterious picture while wandering in the space through the glass and the scenery wall.
▼游览路线演化过程 The evolution of tourist routes
草木、泉、石，阳光洒落， 在不经意的间隙里， 在刻意的留白中。
Plants, springs, and rocks are shining under the sun in the designed white space.
The second scene – Water reflection,reflecting the sky, self-explanatory scene
Wandering through the bridge and corridor, visitors can enter the courtyard. Looking from the direction of the sales office, they can find out the passing space becoming the background of a painting. Art sculptures decorate the elegant space. Corridors with irregular shapes increase the rhythm and vitality of the space to produce more artistic light and shadow.
The starry pool ripple and the twisted branches dance in the water.
The still water surface contrasts with the hustle and bustle of the city outside and engaging the emotions of the visitors. The star lights at night further emphasize the cleanness and purity of the space.
第三幕 —— 林光斑驳 光穿过树叶的缝隙
The third scene – Mottled Forest ,Lightpasses through the gaps between leaves
Coming out of the sales office, visitors can arrive in the forest and the light and shadow world of nature. The leaf-shaped resting platform under the forest and the water pavilion on the shore provide views of the water. The multi-level water feature is ornamental and interactive. When the light is shining on the land, the trees cast shadows, vividly making people nostalgic.
第四幕 —— 流光泉汩 溜向室内的光影林景
The Fourth Scene – Stream and Spring,Remain the forest inside
Crossing the small bridge is another resting platform under the forest in the backfield which can be used flexibly as an event space. Sitting on a chair and hearing the breeze through leaves, the water flowing by, visitors will have an open-air concert of nature here. Visitors in the interior negotiation area can’t bear to come out to enjoy the landscape as well!
Sitting on the shore of the water and having a rest, visitors in the forest are dreaming of a wonderland.
第五幕 —— 廊下怜影 面朝活水与绿林
The Fifth Scene – Under the Corridor,The Living Water and Green Forest
The corridor frame in the backyard is integrated with the two-sample houses. As part of the meeting space, it provides the scenery under the corridor and extends the experience space of the sample house. Opening the window, visitors can stand by the water and have a view of the woods at the same time.
The exhibition area will be a part of the main area in the future and will be permanently preserved. Also, the entire water system will be connected to the design of the main area. One of the rooms in the demonstration area will be converted into a community gym to meet the diverse life needs of the customers in the future.

选材与施工 Material selection and construction
The project uses four new landscape materials: glass bricks, colorful glass, the corrugated board of wood pattern, and colorless glass stone. From the schematic design to the construction, through the strict management and control of the products, the layout simulation, the production, and the processing to the on-site construction, we finally achieve a perfect effect.
The curved glass brick wall with a length of about 19 meters uses straight bricks. The sample is repeatedly studied to simulate a smooth curve with square bricks. We make the gap smaller at the arc-shaped tangent point. By repeated adjustment of the arc, the final inner arc ensures a narrow seam, and the outer arc only leaves a 2mm gap.
The ceiling material of the corridor frame was first made of gypsum board. But even constructed with a steel panel, this material still has the risk of mildew and an expensive price. The aluminum ceiling has a large gap and the color is unstable with glue. Therefore, the corrugated board was finally selected.
Light, quietly spreads in, through the trees, grass, and the clear spring.The winding corridor under the forest and the light and shadow interpret the “heart” scene.
