Located in Xiangtan, Hunan province, this project became a unique research platform.


Taking into account client’s requirements to maximize used area and at the same time to allow future inhabitants necessary living comfort, this project required creative approach and re-thinking.


Due to a lack of space to completely fulfill inhabitants outdoor needs, the landscape design, besides ground plane, also embraced the vertical axes in its development.


In that way, landscape & outdoor started to develop upwards as well (in all 3 dimensions), creating a concept in which all the requirements are fulfilled and balanced, where, the same time, typical residential tower transformed into dynamic, interesting creation.
