The site is located in Sanjiangkou of Cangshan District, Fuzhou. It includes a part of renovation project and a part of new project. We strive to implement our plan based on the original construction and to create the exclusive highlights.
This project is inspired by Wang Ximeng's masterpiece "Thousands miles of mountains and rivers" and constructs the scenery of the river and mountain to demonstrate Yuzhou Manjiang Villa's value as a waterscape villa.
The back court and the front court are connected by “Triple Gates” , which makes the front and back collide and blend. The backyard is the entrance part of the villa area, with the theme of stone, deer and tea respectively, representing various resources and beautiful meanings of Fuzhou.
The entrance design refines the relationships among mountains in the "A Thousand Miles of Rivers and Mountains ".We use hundreds of curved steel rods to create linear mountain-shaped combination. The three colors of white, green and blue are used to restore the mineral colors used in the painting. Using of the color from gemstones constitutes a magnificent starting at the gate entrance area.
The original waterscape foundation is retained which creates spaces with different light and shadow changes just like the unique treasure that attract people to think more deeply and explore more in depth.
