Taking oriental Siheyuan/Sanheyuan as archetype of the project, the designer applies design techniques sparse and dense and symbolizations, transforming the space to a place where people can return to peaceful refined lifestyle and enjoy relaxed poetic home life.
The roads on the three sides of the site bring continuous flow of pedestrians and vehicles. Properly obscure and guide the sight, and embellish with the mix and match of sceneries and plants of different colors, making the pathways slightly winding but not boring. The entrance area of shops is at the south side, with low profile and dignified gray and black colors as the main tone of the floor.
The main courtyard is constructed and opened up with a small-to-large view. Pathway is implemented with garden design technique to extend the walking distance in limited space. As for the swimming pool area, imagery transformation design technique is used. The ripples at the bottom of the pool and the reflections on the ceiling present gentle and beautiful curves on the charming water surface reflections, creating a gentle, making the area not only a cozy space for sports but also an artistic space full of vitality.
