Jiahai Master Plan, Tianjin, China

Located near the center of the city and within view of the Heihe River, this residential project creates a verdant central garden with a series of surrounding low-rise and high-rise neighborhoods that enclose the garden to create an exclusive and private setting. The outer wall of retail shops creates a bright and lively atmosphere without compromising the quiet peace of the inner garden. The high-rise residential units are carefully placed to provide the greatest access to sunlight and views, while also providing privacy from adjacent towers and maximizing the efficiency of the units.
