Located in Qianjiang New City of Hangzhou, the New Green Garden is 300 meters away from the north bank of the Qian Tang River.
The site is divided into the east and west zones by a north-south landscape axis. In the east zone, four slab-type high-rise buildings surround a main landscaped garden. In the west zone, a minor landscaped courtyard is formed by two high-rise towers and management buildings along the street. The two zones are connected by the entrance plaza on the landscape axis. Eventually a building group with a three-layered courtyard is created to provide multiple layers of space showing mutuality between solidness and emptiness. Different from the progressively layered layout in traditional Chinese courtyard, the entrance of the site is located at one side of the middle courtyard. The pedestrian circulation partially overlaps the courtyards, providing a
brand new perspective of spatial experience. In order to provide a better environment inside the community, the entrances of the underground parking are set on both sides of the main entrance to guarantee a complete pedestrian circulation system beyond the entrance. The buildings look dignified and elegant with a neoclassical style.
Designed by an Australian firm PLACE, the landscape is a precise execution of the strictly symmetric and sophisticated design concept based on the classical European garden style. With the properly ordered landscape axis and the rich space layers, it is a perfect match to the architecture.
