Gaoming district, one of the five districts of Foshan, Guangdong province, is known as the "mountain and water capital". The project is located in Hecheng street, east of gaoming district, on the bank of Xijiang River, known as "pearl of Xijiang".
As a residential demonstration area project with the function of riverside space, the design faces two major challenges. The first is how to perfectly combine the display function of the demonstration area with the function of riverside space under the restriction of 60% green space rate. The second is how to combine regional culture to create distinctive site attributes.
With the theme of "beautiful mountains and rivers", the design uses the long and narrow riverside space to create a linear modern waterfront park.The project is used for display, leisure, fitness, community activities as a riverside park. The landscape structure is "one axis, one belt, multiple nodes", one axis is the east-west landscape spindle, one belt is the landscape belt along the river, and multiple nodes are spread out along the landscape belt, aiming at different customer groups of children, youth and old people, and under the condition of limited hard site area, small and beautiful activity space is designed.
The design elements of Xijiang river and mountains are extracted and extended. In the plane composition, the linear staggered pavement texture anrd planting form conform to the long and narrow riverside green space. Different functional spaces permeate each other and the rhythm of infiltration is like the flowing water. On the facade elements, the intention of rolling mountains is extracted to deduce thes characteristic activity facilities.
The design takes "beauty of mountains and waters" as the theme element, connecting seven landscape node spaces -- welcome entrance, zhiyin square,childrens‘s garden of hill, tree table garden, riverside greenway, tree-lined school, waterfront healthy space. For the elevation difference of the river bank, the method of grading treatment is adopted to form a natural transition.
The main entrance is designed with sloping land green island combined with gold LOGO to form the sign space of the entrance. On both sides of the central axis landscape belt, neat shrub planting is adopted, combining with sequential tree boxes to create a ritual homing landscape axis. The main entrance of the demonstration area is designed with guiding paving and central tree, and the mountain-shaped art sculptures echo the theme.
Water meets bosom friends, as the intersection of the two axes of the view of the river platform, with the changing linear light belt combined with the changes in tone, echothe light shadow and mountains at the opposite side. The ramp is combined with large steps and terraced flower pond, and the elevation difference is graded to ensure a wide view.
As the square in front of the sales office, set up the children's activity area, become the highlight for attracting family customers. With the lively colors, the extension of linear elements and the climbing facilities in the shape of rolling hills, it becomes a paradise of micro-topography. On the boundary between the playground and the greening, staggered benches are set to form a rhythmical landscape and meet the functional requirements of rest and care.
The long table of white corina is just like a light and elegant ribbon, which is surrounded by green trees. The whole garden has the function of leisure party and the art of sculpture. The north side of the tree table garden combines the functions of the youth fitness club in the large area stage.
The 6m wide embankment road was designed as a slow track combined with a bicycle path, which was connected with the main garden road through the observation platform to naturally connect the height difference. The green belt stretches along the riverbank as ships pass by.
On the base of the green slope, there are staggered white lines, and the plain and coarse stone benches and tables are scattered among them to create a natural and comfortable tree-lined space.
As the old people's activity area on the south side of the open area, it is designed with three functional areas: chess playing , multi-functional lawn and fitness area. The lawn is combined with the shade space to form a rhythmic change and a highly unified linear design language.
