The site is located in the heart of Ningbo city, Zhejiang Province, China, with a prime urban location and impressive landscape and cultural resources. To the south of the site is the 600-year-old Ganlu Temple. The project covers an area of 14,100㎡, with a total construction area of 80500㎡, including 56500㎡ above ground and 24,000㎡ underground.



The project is based on the concept of "three-dimensional garden" in the city, exploring and practicing a new way of green and organic living. The layout of the plan echoes the complex site conditions and the relationship between urban space in many aspects. Due to the complexity of its surroundings and the specificity of its historical context, the architectural design seeks to create a group of buildings that blend into the tone of the city. They are diverse in scale and type, and the new and the old undulate and blend, forming a spatial polyphony that echoes each other.
Considering the small-scale cultural mechanism, the scheme breaks up the commercial along the street to form a small-scale networked space, while forming a multi-level infiltration with the water system, temples and urban roads. (When considering the location of the tower building, the Xueshi Road on the east side was chosen and avoided the axis of the temple in order to respond to the temple architecture with a humble attitude)
