Quadrangle Courtyard Garden Transformation

The transformation takes the Oriental thought into consideration, which is in line with the owner’s business philosophy, integrate the traditional concept of “the best is like water”. “Water is good for all things without fighting, stays where hated by all “, water is good at nourishing all things, but does not compete with anything, it stays in the low-lying place where people are unwillingly to go, and interprets the highest service and business wisdom. The courtyard design borrows the water-like curve to soften the traditional architecture of upright and foursquare order.

The winding trails are interspersed with different leisure areas in the courtyard, the vision scene is set step by step, combined with the cultivation of fruit trees and plants in different seasons. The winding paths lead to seclusion can realize the secluded mental state of abandoning oneself to nature, while meeting the leisure exercise of internal employees after work. Borrowing the traditional Chinese garden pattern, focusing on the “Pavilion” in the courtyard as the finishing touch, combined with the building structure covered with green plants on the ramp, soften the impact of facing the building on the space of four office buildings, hide in the courtyard in the form of hills, integrate with the courtyard, and create a sharing space for employees to receive guests, party and rest. The opening and closing facade can be closed at any time, which realizes the scene of “closing the stove to watch the snow in winter and to sit in the cool in summer”.

Office Building Space Transformation

The building of quadrangle courtyard is a two-story Chinese antique building, part of which is a single-story building. The internal office space meets the dual needs of office function and aesthetics through simple and modern design forms, together with the permeability of floor glass, to change the dull and closed indoor atmosphere of traditional buildings. A circular skylight is specially opened in the underground area of the office building to introduce light and shadow into the exhibition hall to improve the overall transparency.

Comprehensive Transformation of Golf Club

In addition to improving the original space function and the atmosphere tone of lighting, the golf club is planned to add other functions such as storage space, kitchen, cigar room, reception room and so on. The VIP practice room on the second floor has a large three-story Low-E ultra-white panoramic French window, so that users can feel the experience of outdoor courts without distance indoors.
