Spreading among the flexible interior spaces and free layout, courtyards promotes full integration of landscape and rich spatial hierarchy, with the first tier of walls defining the boundary and ensuring privacy and peace. While the pitched roofs inherit the gentle and graceful line proportions of traditional houses, the projected cornices pose as generosity and lightness. Both simple modernity and traditions are maintained in such architectural details as these. Featuring with dark grey diamond-shaped tiles, aluminum moldings, floor-to-ceiling windows, stones and other modern materials the buildings appear more transparent and sophisticated.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Optimization of aluminum alloy sections for corner cornices: pre-fabricated in the factory, installed on site, and the section seams remain on the straight section. It solves the problem that the quality of the joints in the construction of the corner aluminum alloy is difficult to guarantee. Further application of stone paint: use the double-wall method to simulate the façade advance and retreat of the stone curtain wall; use the L-row metal groove to combine the paint to ensure the smoothness of the interface between the paint and the stone.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
There are three main aspects as followed: 1. Technical details of the cornice closing of the sloping roof: by adding small materials, the cornice burrs are closed up, and at the same time, the cornice is visually thinned. 2. Technical details of the diamond-shaped title closing: trim the diamond tile to increase refinement. 3. Wall roofing: adopt clay roofing, and through the special design of roofing, the effect is guaranteed under the requirements of cost control.

TAGS:
Eastern traditions, Courtyards, Pitched Roofs

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The architectural layout and spatial order follow the ancient artistic conception to see the big in the small, and the scenery is different from step to step. The roof of the building has far-reaching eaves, soothing the atmosphere, and at the same time, the traditional Chinese tube tiles are optimized into modern and exquisite diamond-shaped tiles. The roof as a whole is majestic. On the facade of the building, the windows and walls are separated from the roof, and the walls and windows are combined freely, presenting interweaved solidity and transparency. Opening the corners and cancelling the corner columns ensure the penetration of the landscape. Architectural landscape. With well-arranged opening and closing, interspersed inside and outside, the scenery varies along with your move.

CHALLENGE:
Design sustainability: Tang-style architecture, sustainability of traditional culture (revival). The garden-style layout reproduces nature and is sustainable to nature. The use of stone paint instead of natural stone is sustainable for cost and natural resources.
