qinghua college residential community
A prize winning landscape Master Plan for the qinghua college residential community. The Master Plan was designed in three parts; overall and then in two parts East and West. The landscape concept for the Qinhua College Residential Master Plan takes its inspiration from European Cubist Style of the 1930’s. Cubism was known for its use of prime colors and organic shapes often symbolizing the idea of nature. Within the master plan, prime colors appear principally in two areas; firstly within the planting and secondly through the use of materials.The site is divided naturally into three main areas; townhouses to the north and east, the central villas and the remaining multifamily buildings, mostly towards the west. The majority of landscapes appear as courtyard style spaces which have been carefully designed to provide community amenity as well as a picturesque outlook. A range of activity spaces (from seating areas, children’s playgrounds to exercise stations) are found within these courtyards.

In the short term, bringing a better quality of life for the adjacent residents and in time provide a new recognizable recreational core for the city of Kunshan.
The master plan incorporated development along the waterfront at three major locations; Center Island, the Sports Marina and Eco Park. All three were designed with different characters and uses providing a broad range of visual, passive and active open spaces.
The majority of development area was allocated to Center Island which was envisaged as the heart of the waterfront and a natural destination for both local residents and tourists.Taking precedent from other cities around the world such as Miami, Paris, Rome and Berlin, its island form created a concentrated development zone while also capitalizing on views to the surrounding waterfront.
