What kind of carriers can better carry our lives, and can our design do something more for the carrier? This time, the designer tried to make the design do something more for the philosopy of "space to carry life" apart from the style, function balance and concept upgrade.
Thousands of mountains surround on the ground, and the lijiang river embraces the city to flow. After understanding the development history of mountains, waters and human relations and the status quo of the community in Guilin, the design team was inspired by various curve shapes and features of water to design landscape space and nodes, so that people can better understand the importance of nature to life and reshape the relationship between man and nature. Design language elegantly blends natural elements with modern landscape design, also makes natural elements and modern materials and forms integrated with each other.
The overall landscape design is carried out in the field with a flowing curve and a style of Chinese painting. The waterscape flows through the entire site, from a charming terraced horizontal axis landscape to an elegant underwater courtyard, and finally gathers into the central water surface.The trees along the waterside blend the natural romance into the artificial urban landscape, presenting an unique and interesting local culture.
Taking the beautiful rocks and grotesque peak of Guilin as the landscape element, the laid stone is the peak and the waterscape is the river, depicting a picture of wind-sweeping and mist-filled Chinese landscape painting. Selecting the image of river beach twists and turns and suddenly appearing in the shape of water, and it is expressed with an overlapping landscape technique to create a leisurely artistic conception of singing and fishing along the shoal of river banks.
The landscape design at the entrance takes Longsheng Terrace in Guilin as the landscape element to extract, and the arc and level landscapes are selected as landscape technique of expressions. Thus, the sense of ritual and participation of the entrance is enhanced, the atmosphere of leisure and holiday is highlighted, and a wide horizontal axis landscape is created.
Winding path ends here, the color suddenly is becoming bright, and the venue is positioned as an active block, representing the implication of Picking up Stars on the Sky Column (a scenic spot) in the Seven Star Cave. In adition, the bright colors match the appropriate activity facilities, building a dynamic sports community.
