Re-Thinking The Future: Honorable Mention

Part of a new resort community surrounding Jinhai Lake, an hour's drive from Beijing, our project seeks to reconcile the client’s high-end residential program with the desire to connect and integrate various traditions of dwelling with the area’s dramatic change of seasons, year-round recreational opportunities and natural beauty.

The steep, 70% downslope lakeside property demanded a vertical organization, while the panoramic nature of the site suggested a lateral unfurling of view, light, ventilation and access. The distribution and characterization of program produced an intricate organizational puzzle, producing a matrix of internal and external connections, while allowing for seclusion and autonomy when needed.
