With the continuous evolution of the relationship between people and cities, the “comfort” of residences no longer points to the physical needs, but more to the psychological needs of people for shelter. The recognition of regions and the pursuit of quality all come from people’s most original emotional return to “home”. At this time, architectural space becomes a place to accommodate thoughts and emotions.
Lake Park Avenue No.1 integrates people’s emotional return into the design concept in a people-oriented way and creates a fresh, simple, fine, high-end residence which can reflect the quality of life and meet the original emotional needs from such aspects of layout planning, architectural image, texture and space environment.
The overall layout respects the terrain and environment. The central landscape belt naturally separates the northern and southern areas. The duplex buildings in the south look out on the town houses in the north, following the traditional style and rich in changes. The group distribution retains the characteristics of the traditional Chinese urban blocks, namely overall continuation and crisscrossed communities. Meanwhile, courtyards are enclosed by buildings, and the essence of traditional courtyard culture is absorbed. The land is effectively divided into each household in the form of a courtyard, enclosing the secluded space of a private courtyard. The life philosophy of external implication and internal unrestraint leads to the centrality of Chinese architecture. The peaceful environment and the implicit architecture contrast the living concept of “quietness” and “clearness”, so that the architectural sequence is closely combined with life, the scale is pleasant without twists and turns, and the design is simple and exquisite.
With the respect for land and the admiration for culture, the project integrates the ancient and modern courtyard cultures, making the villa perfectly rooted in this land. The careful treatment of roads, courtyards, green, water and architecture creates the harmonious unity of gardens and houses. The landscape is projected freely into the interior space, while the interior space is connected naturally with the external garden. The well-arranged landscape forms the image of “the unity of man and nature, mansions and gardens”, which is an artistic conception of the architectural language.
The building adopts the new Chinese style on the whole. Through the abstract refining of traditional façade elements and the addition of modern elements, the tone of Chinese style and exquisite aesthetic feeling are maintained in detail. The beige wall is matched with interlaced coppery lines to form a grid façade. It not only reflects the introverted and generous characteristics of traditional Chinese architecture with the design method of virtual-real contrast, but also preserves the typical elements of traditional Chinese architecture, such as eaves, solid walls, courtyards, etc. It also absorbs the concept of modern living with the materials and construction techniques of modern buildings, highlights details in simplicity, and creates a harmonious unity between tradition and modernity. Clear corners, high roofs, simple design, precise proportions, enhanced functions and good construction quality make buildings not only retain the charm and essence of Chinese houses, but also present a bright and rigorous sense of modern integrity.
