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 sh ops creates a bright and lively atmosphere without compromising the quiet peace of the inner ga rden. The high-rise residential units are carefully placed to provide the greatest access to su nlight and views, while also providing privacy from adjacent towers and maximizing the efficien cy of the units.
