BANSHAN PARKSIDE COMMUNITY

The beauty of this park side location shapes the design of this romantic Mediterranean community. A neighborhood that listens to the land and architecture which grows naturally out of the site makes one love coming home.

 

We saw an opportunity in this area of Hangzhou, China to design a community rich in character. Surrounding projects were clean and simple, almost office-like.  The team knew we could stand out by designing a community inspired by the classic mediterranean towns we all love.  A lovely human scale and with a strong romantic character.

It is a mixed use neighborhood with retail shopping, apartments, and townhomes on a sloping site. Rather than a ridgid site plan the buildings are placed to move with the land as if they were built over generations.

To soften the architecture and make it inviting we chose a familiar mediterranean theme overall. 

Sales have been wonderful due to the lifestyle and strong sense of place created by the design team.
