Design of Residential Housing


Based on a thorough analysis and deep understanding of people’s demand for habitant environment, the project has designed 8 high-rise and 7 low density foreign-style houses in clusters, revealing the oriental beauty, highlighting the essence of Minnan(referred to Southern Fujian Province) culture, and setting a model for low-density and comfortable habitant environment.
With the traditional etiquette order of entrance at three layers and typical oriental features, the project follows the essence of Chinese gardens, takes inspiration from tea, brush, and ink, aiming to create a vivid oriental courtyard, present the Chinese rites passed on for thousands of years and to reveal the true nature of life. Based on oriental elements of Chinese fashion and high-tech concepts, the project incorporates localized and intelligent living scenes into the site to create a unique, green, and healthy community.
The facade design is featured by the old-age elements of Minnan culture. By putting its focus on the overall layout, architectural form, and selected material, it manages to create a beautiful mansion with modern charm and set a model for novel habitant environment featured by Minnan culture. Besides, the design also highlights inheritance and research of local culture and integrates modern aesthetics with essences of old-age houses in Minnan, bringing both a modernized sense and a solemn and classical style to the buildings and featuring the cultural charm and a sense of honor and dignity.
The warm-toned design creates a sense of elegancy, dignity, and nobleness, while the detailed metal decorations add a sense of delicacy and luxury and highlight its excellent quality. The eave design absorbs the essence of traditional old-age houses in Minnan but uses modern, simplified faced instead to render a different charm. With protuding heads and slightly upwarped ends, the overhanging eave resembles the shape of dovetail, hence it’s also called dovetail ridge, bearing the positive meaning of “a bright future”. The combination of window variations and colorful changes on the local shutters work together to create the rhythmical charm on the horizontal side and form the upright and straight lines on the vertical side. Some more lines on the key areas could work wonders, injecting a sense of rhythm into the building, and with the thick walls and detailed decorations, all have created a sense of elegance.
