The curve strip patterns, as the theme of space design, demonstrate the delicate layers of flowing space that remodels the previous dull backyard of the residential community into the convoluted water and green experience of space. The original small after, by means of the flowing structures and lines, has become smooth and intriguing.
The congregate housing is designed with the modern minimalistic geometric style, of which the horizontal and vertical lines delineate different spaces. The traffic flows progressively established in the residence distinguish the outdoor and the indoor traffic flow. The entrance of the residential community is decorated with the minimalistic geometric water landscape, walls alongside the buildings, and enframed scenery of plants, all of which maximize the space of the greenery community courtyard and create an excellent quality of living environment as well.
The overall layout is decorated with the design skills of the axis, the empty space, the geometric enframed scenery and the overlapped depth of field, all of which create a relaxed area with independent and distinct features. Spaces are connected by the guidance of the traffic flows, the just-right empty space and the enframed scenery of the artworks, all of which ingeniously transform the indoor space into an eastern-humanity relaxed area with the symmetrical, layered, and multiple functions.
This design project using the design skills of eastern garden encompassing the layers, enframed scenery, detour, lights and shadows highlights the traffic flow with the transitional two-section community entrance that exposes the conceptual image resembling a winding path leading to a secluded spot, securing the privacy of the residences in the community, and furthermore generating the intriguing detour traffic flow.
The design project combining the clear-cut geometric planes and delicate multi-layered lights and shadows converts the irregular outdoor space into an excellent landscaping space with multiple layers and diverse functions. Whenever the residents walking by the public artwork at the entrance, by the pools and by the walk paths can feel the expectation of the residential community and the warm welcome from home.
