Project Description

This design project proposes nature as the principle of design. Trees and green fields come into view at the moment coming here, where people can relieve pressure from bustling life, and purely enjoy the beauty of simplicity. The big natural pool and slate walkway reconcile the human senses and nature, where has the delightful views of the babbling water and lovely fishes.
At the beginning of construction progress, the designer considering the view originally blocked by the other building visually concealed that building by skillfully using trees with diverse heights. In addition to planting the original trees to more suitable locations, the designer manifested the feeling of coexistence with nature by ingeniously using landscapes, slates, and pool.
The sculptures are properly adorned as a part of courtyard landscaping, where the natural ambience spawned by green field, grass land and blue sky creates charms and characteristics different from those in city life.
The symphony of lifestyle composed of nature and art in this place, where the entire views with the sound of babbling water have gradually conformed into the artistic deconstruction of nature.
