This is a starting-up area for 10 ha residential development by China Merchants Land in south of Zhengzhou, the largest city in center of Mainland, China. The project was won through a design competition with 4 other landscape companies including HZS and the client finally contracted Instinct Fabrication as landscape consultant.
During competition, our landscape team proposed a new version of ‘Neo- Classicism’ a design vocabulary often used in chinese residential development. The idea behind that is to remain a landscape framework with characteristics of ‘Neo- Classicism’ while to simplify landscape features/elements at a detail level, which, was well received and widely admitted by the competition juries.
As we always believe, there could be innovation in every corner of our environment, in every what-is-used to and basically in everything we are living around with. By this project, we would like to establish a renovation and milestone revolutionizing traditional methodologies for landscape design in ‘Neo-Classicism’ residential development.
The project plans to open publicly in July, 2016.
