Vision for a green neighbourhood
Zhenzhou Huanghe Spring
Location: Zhenzhou, China
Client: Henan Vanchuang Real Estate Co., Ltd.
Program: 95,0 ha plot size, 635.000 total GEA m2
Our vision for this green neighbourhood at the outskirts of Zhengzhou creates a comfortable place to live at the edge of the city. Residential clusters are located in a network of landscape parks and offer an alternative to the busy city center.
The site is located outside Zhengzhou at the gateway to the next city. The contrl plan of the distric didn’t offer more than a landuse for low density housing.
We advised our client on the best urban design and development logic. Where to start development; where to place relocation housing; where to focus which target group, and how to integrate public functions such as schools and elderly people’s homes with an open space network that connects the functions together into a new, green and inviting neighbourhood.
