Project Description:
A prime riverfront location along the Ba River containing a mix of high rise residential towers, mid rise buildings and low rise garden house luxury units.  The site is adjacent to the motorway leading to the Xi'an Terra Cotta Warriors Museum, thereby becoming a gateway project serving travelers in both directions.  Also influenced by the ChamBa ecological preserve interspersed in and across the river, the design introduces water features into the site and seeks to maximize views and orientation for all the units.

Inspired by the natural features of the site and location, the concept is organized around the idea of 'lily pads' which provide identity for groupings of building types.  The buildings are connected by a landscaped pedestrian route which meanders throughout the entire development.  The specific residential buildings, ranging from six level garden house units, mid-rise residences, to high-rise buildings, all share common characteristics.  These include the priority placed upon view orientation and maximum solar exposure, and the desire to provide each building and zone with a specific identity.  Careful placement of buildings maximizes view corridors to the river, while minimizing direct views into neighboring buildings.
