The Drainage of Jade
Community landscape space
Taiwan, Kaohsiung City
FU CHU HSU, PEI-CHI HO
To create a living environment surrounded by trees, and to make the residential space be embraced by the forest, the design team tried to combine the original landscape with the site, forming a forest figure. The space with rich species buffers the environmental impact from the construction. The site is like a piece of green puzzle fitting together with the city. The planning of paths and lawn provides stepping stones for species which connect the natural landscape with the architecture, bringing out the vibe and vitality of the open space as the resplendent jade with veins.
With the design of multi-layered planting and loop layout, the open space is perfectly utilized. Passengers are guided both on primary and secondary routes. Sidewalk is paved with cold-colored flooring; greenery is introduced abundantly because of the setback. Besides, the design team planted beech trees, which represents the blessing of reaching great achievement and wealth, along two sides of the path; the path accompanying the multi-layered planting makes the sidewalk comfortable and pedestrian-friendly.
