Ningbo, Zhejiang, China
Future Town has been developed to address issues of how we live now and how we respond to future lifestyle changes.
The sales center is designed to respect its urban context by creating clear zones of transition as residents move through the space. Initially an open public urban plaza leads to a second zone which features a grid of trees set within a calm and still water feature. This second stage starts a dialogue between nature and the urban context. Once through the outer building an inner courtyard, enhanced by a formal lawn and feature plantings set within the water features creates a final transition before entering the display.
