This project is located in the Tianhe district of Guangzhou, which is the area with the highest density in the city. There are Linhe village and high-rise residential buildings around the project site. At the beginning, the design is focused on balancing the influence of the scale and the density of its surrounding through the movement of the architecture volume and the change of windows between the form and the density. We’ve tried to reduce the sense of disharmony of scale between the project and the surround buildings. At the same time, it responds particularly to the building identification and the solution between energy savings and the quality of function. It is an active attempt at the idea of local urbanism during the process of high-density urban development.
