Outdoor Living Room

TOWNLAND were selected for the landscape design competition for the Huanxiu Lake Area in association with Suzhou Zhuyuan Landscape Planning & Design Co.  A proposed large-scale Waterfront Park will become the icon of the New Town and has a pivotal role in highlighting the ecological features of the New Town. The design intent behind the scheme proposed by TOWNLAND is centred on the concept of an “Urban Living Room”. The Design Team made use of the special site conditions and created 3 distinct districts and 10 special scenic areas around the Lake.  The Waterfront Park withplaza and generous landscape treatmentare proposed at the waterfront area as a key node where residents can interact and get close to nature.  A reduced speed traffic system and a water transport system are seamlessly integrated into the landscape design. With the aid of a night lighting system, the Lake will become the blue sapphire of the Suzhou HSR New Town, connecting the “3 districts and 10 scenic areas”, to become a living room full of energy and romance.
