The project was to build a large initiative and demonstration area for the Beautiful Countryside campaign, it was also our exploration of the Beautiful Countryside products.
After fully investigating the existing farm and Chinese-town products in China, our design combined the architectural characteristics of Lingnan and Guangxi ethnic minorities to create new and original modern farm products.
We tackled project with grouped farms, with each farm group comprising five households with sizes ranging from 90sqm to 220sqm. Large houses in the group were located at the ends, small houses in the middle, with each household enjoying a piece of private planting field.
The households were designed into semi-open courtyards with front yard, backyard, eaves, screen doors, windowed roof that have brought the Lingnan ethnic characteristics into the modern living space.
