Located on Hainan Island – often called “the Hawaii of China” – this new resort community provides a private, exclusive resort experience, with an emphasis on green space, community interaction and beautifully landscaped public spaces. The contemporary architecture, with its clean, angular lines, provides a unique contrast to the lush surroundings. Each of the multiple villa types is designed as an indoor/outdoor garden retreat. The townhouse buildings, located along the perimeter of the site near the neighborhood’s entry point, are larger in scale but incorporate elements such as pitched and flat roofs, covered roof terraces, glassed corners, large overhangs and protected balconies, all of which help to deconstruct their massing and scale. Part of a larger master-planned community, this neighborhood is designed to promote walkability and a connection to neighboring developments.
