Weixing Sincere Garden, Ma’anshan by

2024 Residential / China / Built in 2023 /

“Sincere Garden” represents a new attempt at residential landscape design, akin to a “pause” in an opera, reminding us to slow down and savor the moment. Inspired by the concept of timelessness, the designer invites you to embark on a journey through a new dimension, where the boundary between urban hustle and the serenity of nature blurs seamlessly. The landscape depicts the relationship between rivers, the earth, and various life phenomena, with mysterious water rhythms and natural ease, vividly displayed between the interplay of light and shadow.

At the entrance, guests are welcomed into a sanctuary for the soul, where the landscape unfolds like a theater of life. Drawing inspiration from the majestic contours of mountains and the intricate patterns of earth art, the design gracefully merges with the site’s natural topography. Through careful manipulation of form and space, undulating terrain and a harmonious arrangement of trees create a haven where nature thrives amidst the urban landscape.

Cultural symbolism intertwines with nature through the incorporation of gemstone elements. The centerpiece, the “Heart of Blue” sculpture, crafted from acrylic and adorned with black crushed stone, stands as a testament to the awe-inspiring beauty of the natural world. Surrounded by greenery, the gemstone reflects a subtle green glow as if swaying in the waves of a verdant ocean. With its innate artistic temperament, it crowns the site with aesthetic value, creating an identity for the community of Ma’anshan.

Throughout the project process, the designer carefully considers each structure and detail, using the “Heart of Blue” to drive the spatial narrative, weaving natural elements into a series of life stories. From the graceful sway of a tree to the delicate bloom of a flower, every detail is imbued with a sense of poetry, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in the timeless flow of nature’s cycle.

Beyond its functional purpose, “Sincere Garden” embodies profound emotional resonance. Here, the passage of time is marked by the subtle shifts of the seasons, each bringing its own spectacle of color and vitality. Amidst the dappled sunlight and gentle breeze, one can’t help but feel a profound connection to the natural world, a reminder of the enduring power and beauty that surrounds us.
