建筑设计上，镬耳墙、人字坡、博古脊林立。融德里首先是对场地内保护性文物建筑进行精心修缮， 进一步凸显岭南当地的建筑特征， 对于新建建筑， 则参照岭南特色园林建筑， 与场地内保护性文物建筑风格、体量相统一， 以新岭南建筑风貌强有力的对标岭南天地、永庆坊等成熟的岭南特色商业街区。
In terms of architectural design, there are wok ear walls, herringbone slopes and Bogu ridges. Rongdeli first carefully renovates the protected cultural relics buildings in the site to further highlight the local architectural characteristics of Lingnan. For new buildings, it refers to the Lingnan Characteristic garden buildings, unifies the style and volume of the protected cultural relics buildings in the site, and take the new Lingnan architectural style as a strong benchmark for mature Lingnan characteristic commercial blocks such as Lingnan Tiandi and Yongqing square.

In the future, Rongdeli will hold various activities such as lion awakening, dragon boat, Cantonese opera, as well as rich and interesting experience projects such as Cantonese cuisine. We expect the “slow life under the banyan tree” will return to the community. The leisure of the old city will be just around the corner.
