XSiTE Design Studio：Politan Breeze是湄南河沿岸的一个低层住宅公寓项目，位于Nontaburi，步行十分钟即可到达Phra Nang Klao地铁紫色线。场地中遗存了一个以前作为沿河木材贸易的仓库。如今，湄南河这一段仍然保留着当地的河岸居民点，以及与当地人划船、钓鱼、游泳等活动。设计师将一个废弃的空间改造成了新的滨河住宅项目（Politan Breeze）。
XSiTE Design Studio：The Politan Breeze is a low-rise residential condominium project along the Chao Phraya River located in Nontaburi within a ten-minutes’ walk to Phra Nang Klao MRT purple line. The existing site condition is used to be an abandoned wood warehouse which was part of a previous wood trade along the river. Nowadays, this section of Chao Phraya River still retains local riverfront settlements and its relationship with local people’s activities such as boating, fishing, and swimming. Politan Breeze has transformed an abandoned space into the new riverfront residential project.
景观设计理念Landscape Design Concept
The design team has fulfilled the client’s vision of setting up a new standard for quality living of a middle-sized development project. The designers paid attention to details and their design of a public green space gives the residents an ultimate resort outdoor experience.The landscape design idea is derived from the Thai concept of “Bang”. The word “Bang” refers to the settlement areas along the naturally formed distributary canal of the river. The landscape architects interpreted the concept of “Bang” to form a central green space that was integrated into the surrounding modern residential buildings.
项目场地呈现长窄形。设计师们为了克服了这一困难，提出将空间打造为向湄南河逐渐延伸扩大的景观感。为弥补局促的空间缺陷，设计师们想要通过创造一个在视野不断开阔的景观空间，为居住者提供终极的户外体验。水和植物材料是关键的景观元素，用于创造沿着这条绿地空间的各种户外活动。项目包括Politan 花园步行道、Politan Pond、儿童游泳池和无边界泳池。
The green space is long and narrow. However, the designer overcame this challenge by proposing the space to gradually get larger therefore creating a wider perception toward the river. The designers aimed at giving residents the ultimate outdoor experience to compensate for the limited room area by creating the sense of an expanding social space. Water and plant materials are the key landscape elements used to create a variety of outdoor activities along this green corridor. The programs included Politan garden walk, Politan Sunken Pond, Kid Pool and Swimming Pool.
Politan花园步道Politan Garden Walk
The welcome area connects to the narrow path that is purposed to be the serene Politan garden walk featuring a series of decorated pavilion that form the frame leading visitor’s vista to the river.

The resting seats at the pavilions offer a tranquil and immersive ambience for private relaxation.

The designers strategically capture a spectacular scene created when sunshine reflects on the river showing a dynamic glittering effect which inspires a unique pattern of decorated pavilion. The tilted angle of the pavilion illustrates lively, dynamic line that create an intriguing garden walking experience. Using layers of tropical vegetation, the designers highlight the pavilion and narrow space, as well as create privacy for the rooms on the ground floor.

From the narrow garden walk, the residents will be stunned by the expansion of the space. Using water and dynamic design line, the designers create a visual connection to the swimming pool and the river.
At the Politan Pond, the seats are designed to be sunken into the water to give illusion of wider space, while also promoting the sense of immersion with natural aqua plants. The edge of sunken pond give the sense of living close to water and being surrounded by a resort atmosphere.

无边界泳池和儿童泳池Infinity Edge Pool and Kid Pool
The highlight of the green space is the infinity pool that is raised up to create extensive breath-taking view of the river. The sound of water overflowing offers the sense of relaxation and also act as water feature wall, welcoming the residents to riverfront zone. One special feature of the swimming pool is the rows of Plumeria fragipani. The trees celebrate the space with unique form of multi-trunk, from the edge leaning in over the pool forming a frame vision toward the river. The trees also provide shade and the sense of soothing from the aromatic odor of their flowers.

环境影响和设计问题Environmental Impact and Design Concerns
To deal with flood issues, the designers collaborated closely with client and engineer to have two layers of flood protection wall. The inner protection was raised up to 1.20 m. from the existing wall, protecting the site from higher flood level. Along the waterfront, The designers proposed to expand soft-slope river bank area to give more room for water fluctuation up to 9.5 meters wide from the river. The terrace on the slope acts as filter strips to purify run-off water before flowing into the river, making it more adaptable to the river fluctuation.
The main intention of the riverfront landscape planting design is to reintroduce native shrubs and trees, adding in more variety of planting species to create biodiversity of the area. New Plant materials chosen are the types that can tolerate river water fluctuation, high underground water level and salt water intrusion such as Sea Lettuce, Scevola taccada (Gaertn.) Roxb., Elaeocarpus hygrophilus Kurz.,and Weeping Willow, Salix Babylonica L.The green gaps created between concrete path allows run-off water to infiltrate into the ground.

During the design and construction process, landscape design team has been working closely with the architect and horticulturist to ensure client’s satisfaction of creating a successful and beautiful landscape. The landscape design of Politan Breeze with its built in resort quality sets a higher standard for middle-sized residential project.
Honor Award TALA 2018 in Residential Complex : Low Rise Category Awards Jury’s comment: “We could see the designer’s determination and dedication to craft the delicate details in this project. The mixing of softscape and hardscape materials is well-suited. The immediate dimension issue of the site is solved. The detailed design of the waterfront, as well as the overhead plain, are thoughtful.”
