DEAN DESIGN：The mysteries of the Universe, The scrolls of the Milky Way, The surprises of the future, Are reflected in every child’s eyes, heart and dreams. Beyond imagination, into the unknown, and closer to reality, Nebulae abound in the sky, A starship lands in the forest after the clouds lifted, That is a pure paradise that nourishes the spirit, Where children begin their adventures, Reap true happiness and growth, And enthusiastically embark on a tomorrow of infinite possibilities.
前言-质敬西安人居新生活 Foreword-Honoring the New Life of Xi’an
以光为载体，保利·和光尘樾的每一次落子，都是擎领繁华、潮启生活的重磅产品。此次保利和光系选择了西安这座古今辉映、未来新生的城市，匠心构筑西安保利·和光尘樾，在文化传承的轴线上，延续全生命周期居住系统2.0 —— Well集和社区“健康人居·无Well不至”的产品理念，推动“和趣景观”体系完美落位，打造人居产品新标杆，善筑现代生活新体验。
Xi’an, a city of science and technology innovation and a hub of global development, has seen the last 5,000 years of human history. It can be said that community living embodies a city’s history, present, and future.
With light as the carrier, Poly Palace of Light is a heavyweight product that leads prosperity and initiates life. This time, Poly creates it in Xi’an, a reborn city where the past and present coexist. Following cultural heritage, it continues the Full Life Cycle Residence System 2.0 – the product concept of the community “Healthy Living and Good Care”, to support the sound landing of the “Harmonious and Intriguing Landscape” system, create a new benchmark of human living products, improve and build a new experience of modern life.
For this project, DEAN DESIGN is engaged in designing recreation facilities as well as creating and customizing IP. The designers focus on the inner linked relationship between the past, present, and future by capturing the flavour of culture from the long river of time, deconstructing the scale of art, and injecting futuristic tech. With the main line of “Inheritance-making-building- integration- light and shadow transformation”, the designers work to make time, space, light and shadow, culture freely flow, following the path of the light to advance and reach the future.“The rhythm of the design story is to preserve tradition, make space, build nature and incorporate modernity. We hope that the landscape could be integrated into the neighbourhood and into daily life, to improve both the quality of life for the locals as well as the city’s future,”said DEAN DESIGN.

儿童友好，全龄互动，为高频使用者而设计 Kid-friendly, all-ages interactive, designed for high-frequency users
Residents gauge the quality of community life by using it at various frequencies. In an effort to create a kid-friendly community, DEAN DESIGN takes into account not only the viewpoint of the kids but also that of the parents and elders who accompany them. The value of community playground facilities varies in the perspective of different users. The analysis of the population as a whole is the initial step in the design strategy.
DEAN DESIGN conducted a detailed analysis of the community’s all-age activity status within 24 hours, finding that the elderly and children are the groups who stay the longest and use public areas the most frequently, which is critical for scenario design. Specifically, grandparents and grandchildren, mothers and babies, office workers, and young students are the core users of the community. In terms of activity trace, office workers are active in the community before and after work, focusing on outdoor sports, leisure and social contact; young students go out in the afternoon, centered on entertainment and socializing activities; mothers and babies usually choose to go out in the morning and evening when the sun is soft, mainly in the children’s play area that is easy to look after; the elderly take care of their grandchildren while enjoying leisure moments for themselves, such as early morning exercise and walks after meals.
After a deep analysis of the community’s all-age activities, the children’s play area and the elders’ leisure area, which link the core of the family, became the top priority of the design. “To this end, we regard the children’s playground as a gathering place for children’s fun, parenting and all-age interaction. On one side, a paradise for children, on the other, a care zone for parents and the elderly to accompany. Thus, by fusing humanization and art, life is given vitality.
“True growth requires exploration step by step. We believe that the home is a small dream incubator and the community is a three-dimensional immersive paradise, where the true meaning of life lies in moving, learning and living with joy.” Thus, combining research with practice, DEAN DESIGN cares about their sensory growth for children aged 0-3, supports their curiosity and exploration for those aged 3-6, and encourages them to make bold breakthroughs for those aged 6-12. For growing children, climbing, lying, walking, drilling, jumping, leaping, running and sliding, with different levels of difficulty, will help them grow and be a new source of fun.
Infants are more suitable for safer and less difficult activities, such as climbing slow slopes, and drilling holes. As older children begin to develop a sense of interaction with their peers, a spacious area makes it easier for them to collaborate, run and jump around. School-age children favour fun and educational activities like slides, swings, and sound tubes and hide-and-seek because they are more daring to explore the world.
The designers are well aware of children’s physical and growth needs of different ages. With the children’s playground as a scenario carrier, it is endowed with a story line that progresses in terms of difficulty, physical fitness and fun through the story of Star Trek. By doing so, we can witness the children’s joyful journey from toddler and slow climbing to brave sliding, free running to clever hide-and-seek, etc.

萌启童梦，大有可玩，开启星际未来之旅 Bring a kid’s fantasy to life while having fun, Travel into the far future of the galaxy
溯源这场星际冒险之旅，不得不提的是孩子们独一无二的旅伴 —— 小K。勇气与胆略兼具的它，来自未来世界的KOKO星球，是一个超级行动派，经常说走就走，前往未知的神秘星球探险。在一次短暂的降落中，它发现了这个美丽宜居的星球、友好怡人的社区，有一天它因为好奇将飞船停下，慢慢地结交了许许多多本地朋友，与朝气蓬勃的小朋友们畅享玩趣，共同探索世界。
With the idea of“Travelling and dreaming of the stars”, the designers have brought star trails, the Milky Way, planets, and space stations to life based on the site’s current state. It has become an adventure place where children can travel into the far future of the galaxy at any time.
Little K, children’s special companion, needs to be mentioned in this adventure. He is a brave and bold man from the futuristic planet KOKO, and a super-activist who frequently travels to unknown and mysterious planets. During a short landing, he discovered this beautiful and habitable plant and this friendly community. One day, he stopped the ship out of curiosity, and steadily made a number of local friends, having fun and traveling the world with vibrant kids.

“The setting of Little K is in line with the storyline of the Star Land. In addition to having a fashionable shape full of futuristic and technology sense, Little K, as children’s friend from outer space in the future, will interact and communicate with children of different ages in a relaxing and enjoyable manner, so as to mobilize children’s curiosity about the outside world and to enlighten their mental and physical strength,”said the designers when sharing their original ideas for this IP.

This park’s journey of discovery revolves around the story lines of the City of Stars, Star Trek, Time Tunnel, and Planet of Dreams. At the same time, some recreation facilities are dotted around the park as a circle in an orderly manner. Here, all ages can play and interact as they go on their imaginative journeys.

花样乐动，解锁想象力，寓乐于每一个生活瞬问 Fancy play, Unlock imagination and enjoy each moment of life
在IP主题下，每个场地、每个细节都在丰富星际叙事，展演极具未来感的探险奇遇篇章。以千星之城为据点，从时空隧道廊桥上逆风起航，去蹦蹦床探索与天空的距离，去传声筒把悄悄话说给风，去廊下荡秋千，在编织网攀爬，在云朵摇摇椅、星星跷跷板戏耍……设计丰富孩子们游玩体验的同时，顺沿探险的动线，打通各个关卡，描绘出乐园活动图鉴 —— 星际云端，共享科技与童话的想象力，大有可玩。
Dreaming about the interstellar world while immersed in time and space travel, both reality and fantasy are wonderful. In addition to the childlike design, the rational and flexible functional layout is also a key priority. During the daytime, it is a heaven for leisure, dreaming, social contact, and parent-child interaction, full of laughter; when night falls and the warm lights turn on, the park becomes part of the community, a good area for daily strolls and summer cooling at four seasons.
Under the IP theme, every venue and detail is enriched with intergalactic narratives and futuristic adventures. With the City of Stars as its base, sail from the time tunnel bridge, jump on the trampoline to explore the distance to the sky, whisper to the wind on the megaphone, swing under the gallery, climb on the weaving net, play on the cloud rocking chair and star seesaw…While enriching children’s play experience, the design has followed the motion line of adventure to link each site and depict the park’s activity map – having fun with shared technology and fairy tales in the Star Cloud.

云上漫跑，与彩虹并启 Running on the clouds in the company of the rainbow
Children are chasing, running, laughing, full of enthusiasm; their joy is so pure, simple, and emotionally contagious. In the shade of green and fresh oxygen, the blue interstellar color, along with the vibrant bright yellow and warm orange tones, outlines the cycle of the planets and star trails. As the trajectory is followed, a journey like a star trek begins.

After 30 seconds, you will slip through the time tunnel and into another planet, where is full of dazzling luring “little explorers” to discover. When you bounce hard on the trampoline and jump in the direction of the clouds, it appears for a brief moment that you are free from gravity, reaching out to grasp the clouds in the sky and close to the beginning of your dreams. Besides, humane care is evident all around thanks to the delicate guardrail and soft runway.

七彩千星，瞭望无限精彩 Infinite splendour in the colorful City of Stars
The City of Stars has a rainbow-colored gradient appearance, embracing the colourful life and limitless energy of the planetary space station. Children can climb freely on the weaving net under the corridor and ascend to the interior of the City of Stars. At the same time, they can have fun swinging on the white clouds-shaped planetary swing under the corridor. Their eyes are full of joy at the moment of take-off.

黑洞隧道，穿越异世界 Traveling through other worlds in a Black Hole Tunnel
What is a black hole in the universe? As the daring “little explorers” venture into a secret, deep, and narrow tunnel, all the questions seem to vanish. The semi-enclosed slide with its clever twists and turns, which is named after the “Black Hole Tunnel,” will appropriately pique the children’s curiosity. Here begins an affectionate story between little friends, between parents and children.

花式攀爬跑跳，乐动每一天 Climb, run and jump for daily fun
不同的探索难度，对应不同年龄段小朋友的体力与抓握能力。攀爬之外，更有花式玩法等着解锁 —— 在坡上蹦蹦跳跳，或躲在孔洞里捉迷藏、在滑滑梯上打卡勇气成就，都将成为孩子们成长中的难忘记忆。
With a focus on kid-friendliness, the design makes an effort to create a floating world of planets for kids of all ages that combines the joy of discovery with the warmth of care. “Race with Little K and see who reaches the destination first~” The energetic “Little Explorers” have set off.
Depending on a child’s age and physical condition, there are varying levels of exploring difficulty. In addition to climbing, there are also fancy ways to play – bouncing on the slope, or hiding in the holes, or clocking up on the slide. All of these will become unforgettable memories for children as they grow up.

梦幻云荫，乐园里的“充电站”Dream Shade, the “charging station” in the park.
Dream Planet is divided into a circular area, with an orange track around the outer ring, which effectively separates it from the neighbouring activity themes. Under the shade, it is a “charging station” for children, and also a place for parents and seniors to relax while keeping an eye and ear on their children in close proximity.

设计后记 Design Postscript
项目交付数月后，充满未来科技气息的儿童乐园，以及面向全龄的廊架聚场，已然深深融入人们的真实生活。日常里，大大小小的孩子们快乐共聚，穿行于变幻的时空隧道，收藏着每个瞬间的惊喜，绘写人生的宝藏信条 —— 每一天都是新的冒险，每一天都有美好奇遇。
The community is a hub for good living. Upholding the original intention of “art delights life”, DEAN DESIGN consistently uses the brush of art to express the transformation of “art – place – landscape – emotion”. By using the landscape as a carrier of urban ecology and IP as a medium of emotional resonance, it practices child-friendly and all-age harmony landscape design, ultimately realizing the humanistic spirit of the environment.
As the landscape designer for this project’s Phase I and Phase II areas, DEAN DESIGN has witnessed the advancement of lifestyle, the evolution of friendly landscapes, and the invention and iteration of IP during the creation phase. “We hope that with joyful learning, joyful exercise, and joyful living as keywords, and the Little K’s intergalactic journey as the starting point, we work to create a playful and enjoyable community of life, bringing a high-quality and warm life to all people .”
A few months after the project’s completion, the futuristic children’s playground for all ages has already become an integral part of people’s daily lives. Every day, children happily gather together, travel through the time tunnel, collect the surprises of each moment and write the treasure creed of life – Every day brings with it a fresh adventure and wonderful encounters.
