On Structure Residential Gardens
Location Hangzhou, , Zhejiang, China
Client Narada Real Estate Group Co. Ltd
Scope Landscape Architecture
Size 1.5 hectares
This is a high-density housing site with 16 to 27 story residential towers and ground floor retail. SWA’s design created a series of on-structure gardens to activate street level retail and create an oasis for residents. The floating Bamboo garden is the focal point of the residential garden. Orchards of Timber Bamboo, a symbol of Hangzhou, float within two 70m long reflective pools. Separating the pools and connecting the garden to the street is a water funnel leading to a 3m high black granite water wall which simulates the mountains viewed beyond. A continuous granite pergola edges the pool and provides shaded seating under a Wisteria trellis. Along the street, terraces are arranged to provide outdoor dining for restaurants and access to department stores.
