Once frequented by foreigners, the town features Chinese-style courtyards.
Topographical advantages allow the locals to lead a poetic life along Huangpujiang River.
Located in Pujiang Town, Shanghai, this project is a traditional Chinese-style courtyard house with low plot ratio and high density.
The designer probed deep into the spatial hierarchy, sequence, scale, user behavior and other factors of traditional Chinese architecture, and managed to revive its classical elegance in the design.
This land is neatly divided up into a hundred households in four districts, crisscrossed by 16 lanes, where roads, rivers and alleys alternate.
Departing from the bustling downtown for your private courtyard via public gardens, you will see the lofty building façade, high walls and spacious courtyards dotted with pavilions, stacked stone and thin springs.
Things in the space are layered to create a sense of depth.
As for the architectural style, the building is structured with bricks but shaped by wood and stones to integrate modernity and tradition.
Based on traditional Jiangnan-style architecture and Shanghai culture, the design presents the multiplicity of official and residential buildings, and revives tradition in modern techniques with simple decoration, moderate structure and restraint technique to create the artistic conception.
