STATEMENT

 

This site is located in a high-density area which is full of tall buildings and lack of open space, therefore the residential area designed should embody some vital attributes to deal with these problems:

Harmonious   - Unlike the vertical buildings, I choose to design them in a horizontal way to merge into the environment
High Capacity  - Most of the apartments are small units with 87 sqm in order to reduce the housing pressure in big cities
Comfort  - All the apartments are designed to allow sufficient lighting, open space, and north-south permeability


Nature  - Central garden, upper floor multi-layer open space and roof gardens are designed to let people sense the nature
Multi-function  - Various facilities such as community center, cafe, gym and reading room are equipped in the area
